Wait long enough and what's old is not just new again, it's hip. Such is the case with tiki, that oddly Americanized vision of South Seas culture once viewed through a Woolworth's lens. Gone is the kitsch and in its place comes, well, a touch of class. Our own Adam Tschorn, who dubs it tiki 2.0, has the story.
