  1. The razing of the Chin Tiki is a travesty. There are no plans for that small site surrounded by what is essentially a moonscape of hideous surface lots west of woodward (save the adjacent and now-endangered Moose Hall). Any talk of a new hockey areana is pure fantasy. Just as with the Madison-Lenox, the Statler and Tuller sites and countless others, the building will gave way to a gravel lots holding a handful of parked cars for over-priced entertainment spectacles at nearby venues.

    I had been inside the Chin Tiki a few times..never when it was actually operating…but it was well preserved. Really a shame.
