Heather M. David is a cultural historian and freelance writer. She is the author of the book Mid-Century by the Bay and numerous articles on American popular culture and historic preservation. Heather’s CaliTiki roots run deep. In the 1940s, her family owned a Polynesian-themed bar on San Francisco’s Geary Street called the Trade Winds. While San Francisco’s “Tropical Rendezvous” no longer exists, the David family stories live on and are shared over Monkey Tails at Trad’r Sam’s and Mai Tais at Trader Vic’s. Heather has long been fascinated with California Tiki architecture – its unique style and its whimsy.
