well I like the name. Never been to a tiki bar, never even seen one in the flesh

Damn, I was hoping that maybe each and every Purple Orchid nationwide would be a strip joint ...

I've been to the Purple Orchid. (The tiki bar, not the strip joint.) It's fine, and always nice to have a tiki place in your hood. Some colleagues and I used to go here after work. I seem to remember some fogeys playing Jimmy Buffet on badly tuned guitars. If you ever make it to Hollywood/LA area, the Tiki Ti is lightyears ahead: in atmosphere and drink quality.
