  14. Will Chicago's tiki renaissance last this time?Read the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Jan 14 | Chicago Reader

    It was an announcement to warm any exotica-listening hepcat's heart: one of Chicago's hot nightlife entrepreneurs was opening a new tiki bar in a hot neighborhood, where you'd be able to drink classic tiki cocktails that weren't made out of grocery store-grade mixers. Here was a sign that the midcentury celebration of a South Seas fantasy as a rebellion against the conformist 1950s was coming back and hipper than ever, even as the original wave of such places from the 1940s through 1960s faded into obscurity in malls in second-tier suburbs.

    Cross Record, Be Good Once the snow finally started falling this winter, I had the sudden desire to throw on this LP by former Chicagoan Emily Cross .
