Tiki Central / Locating Tiki
The Tanela Restaurant, Shrewsbury, MA (restaurant)
Very cool. The tiki looks to be about twelve feet high. Classic lava rock wall and poles that may have been for gas torches can be seen. I found that the business was incorporated in 1971. That was a tricky point in time to open a large Polynesian themed place. Looks like that corporation was dissolved in 1983. I couldn’t dig up much more than that online. Someone in the local area could take up the torch and hit the local library or historical society. Doesn’t take much time and is a hell of a lot of fun in my view. Would be awesome to see some more history from this place.
