I was lucky enough to score the oversized postcard and made some better scans of the three pictures.




(interesting that they used the Trader Vic's Fog Cutter mug)



Here is the story from the back of the card, some great Poly Pop imagery and drink mixology.





Glad to be back and running on TC.

The ad mentions "even an albatross". There it is on the back wall!




Also a nice Tiki in the corner.

Just found this guy, one half of a S&P set.
He seems to match the small tiki in the ad (down to the protruding eyeballs). So I'm wondering... is the large tiki the other half of the set?
The seller had no idea where she got it from, or where the other half could be. I also picked up half a PMP peanut set and half an orange TV set.
hey, a buck a piece for things I didn't have, maybe I'll find the other half someday.
There's nothing on Ooga-mooga, just the two moai mugs shown in this thread.

Cool find. I always loved that Tiki, I actually used it for a collage I made of Pre-Tiki sheet music and the menu, on the back of Tiki News -



...obviously for its phallic qualities I am beginning to wonder if it existed as a carving in the restaurant, because his partner did, as we can see in frame 2 on this highly desirable giant postcard/placemat:

Found this ad online from the Luau - they seemed to have dropped the Langerman's name. Wonder if it sold at some point?



A nice looking flaming Pupu Platter for only $1!

This menu from Langerman's Luau sold on ebay a while back.



Now where have I seen those images before??



The old TTT art of borrowing from the best. Talk about clip art.

These photos from Langerman's Luau sold on ebay a few months ago. The were taken at a Luau held to celebrate Hawaii becoming the 50th state.




That's Harry Langerman in the middle.





Also saw this old placemat that announces the opening of the restaurant in Atlantic City.



And another version of the menu tiki.
