I messed with it in Photoshop and it looks like the moai are up. At least I think that's what those two black blobs are

Also, I apologize for the crazy amount of pixelation.

Mr Leitweins son bill used to make those.
They said when he was 7 years old he would help
make those ashtrays along with mr. Sapps wife.
Now they are going for $80.00 bucks or more.

Here we have Tom Iaquinta left and Hermon Leitwein.
Tom worked for Mr Leitwein, And later became
Building and maintenance superintendent.
One of Toms duties was to light the two 15 foot moai
in front of the Kahiki.
BY HAND!!
He would use a soup can on a pole to light the gas torches.
Tom also helped make the ashtrays and other ceramic mold
type things.
He said those ceramic things were made of a material called
pour rock.
Mr Leitwein Also said that the first table lamps had sented
oil lamps and were not electric.
Mr Leitwein turned 84 on the 22 of September 2007.

I saw this bowl on a picture of a Kahiki drink menu. Does anyone know anything about it?

Hey Ratzaroony,
Sorry I took so long to get back to you.
That bowl is one of a kind I think.
Few people have seen it.
I think I heard that Sven saw it at the Kahiki in the office.
Could be that they were going to make those but never did.
It looks a lot like the Mai Kai bowl. (first pic)
This is a section of a Kahiki pole. (second pic)
They had these poles in 7 foot sizes too.
I think they are from Mexico. The poles that is.

Well that would explain why I've never seen pictures of it. It makes sense that they would go with a simpler design, but dang, that bowl is so cool

Here is a menu from the Kahiki.
This menu was never used at the Kahiki.
It was a new lunch idea that they never put in action.

These two masks were from the Kahiki as well.
They now sit in the Tropical Bistro in Columbus Ohio.

I can confirm that Robert Thornotn of the Mai Kai and Bill I assume were friends. I was told they hung out in Florida on RT's boat and so, they definitely stole, ahem, borrowed ideas. It wasn't all sneaky. These guys were buddies.

Here's a picture of a Kahiki swizzle holder from 1964. It's on ebay right now.

EDIT - This is NOT from the Kahiki.

I could be wrong but I do not think that is from the Kahiki.
Looks more like treasure craft?

I had my doubts as well. I haven't bid on it and don't plan to, but the person does say the bottom is marked "Kahiki Columbus" with the date 1964. It certainly doesn't look like it's from the Kahiki. I'll edit my post to reflect the fact that it isn't Kahiki. I'm also sending her a message asking for a picture of the bottom.
