The Golden Tiki Celebrates One Year Anniversary
The Golden Tiki celebrated its first anniversary on July 24 with the debut of Frank Marino’s shrunken head, a performance from Bob Log III, a DJ set by Professor Rex Dart and a special appearance by The Baron of the Universe, a current contestant on “America’s Got Talent.” Guests enjoyed tiki punch and magic tricks from a strolling entertainer, posed for photos with a Jack Sparrow impersonator and one lucky guest won a trip to Hawaii.
“We’re thrilled to be celebrating our one year anniversary with Frank Marino and to be recognized as one of the best tiki bars in America,” said Branden Powers, Golden Tiki managing partner. “We had a great turnout and couldn’t have done this without the support of the Las Vegas community and our wonderful staff. We look forward to many more years of serving our loyal guests.”
Powers and The Baron presented Marino with his shrunken head during the celebration. Created exclusively for The Golden Tiki’s cabinet of curiosities, the head was sculpted over the course of four weeks referencing photos of Marino to ensure physical accuracies.
“I’ve been here for 30 years and they’ve given me a street, a star and now a little head,” laughed Marino. “I’m honored to be here to celebrate The Golden Tiki’s anniversary.”
