Humuhumu’s description:
The Aku-Tiki Room was in the Andris Waunee Farm Restaurant, in a remote area just off Rural Route 2. Glen Andris purchased the farm in 1953, but didn't add on the tiki room until 1967—inspired not by a trip to Hawaii, but instead by winter trips to Acapulco, and time spent in the Aku-Tiki restaurant there. The room was expanded in 1984.

It closed in January 2008, and there was an auction of the remains in June 2008.
