Bongo,

Nice matchbook, I have always wanted one of those. Looks like you got a new scanner!

Here is an ashtray with the signature Tiki from Wellman Jue's Paradise clipped from the web.

And a little more history from the LA Times circa 1992.

Wellman , who opened Paradise in 1965, has recently returned to the site from which he ran his restaurant until its closing in 1980. Instead of the Polynesian theme, he is now offering a traditional steak and seafood house. All food is cooked to the customer's order. Fish dishes can be fried, steamed, broiled or baked.

I purchased a different matchbook from Wellman Jue's in Ventura. No Tiki but a nice little rendering of Paradise.

Great name, simple and to the point.
