Nice find Buddha man.

Here is a pic of Soung he used to work at the Kahiki and later
with his friend Ting opened the Tropical Bistro.
(You can also see him in my video of the Last days of the Kahiki)
Soung now works at the Tai's Asian Bistro, Don't what the love
of the bistro name is.

Also seen here is a replica of the Kahiki fireplace that he had a friend of his make.
I still go and see Soung often he runs the sushi bar area the food is
good, so stop in and say hey to our old friend Soung.

This is an odd bit from the net.
Don't know if this was after Hoffman Pottery made bowls for the Kahiki.
Or if the Breinings made bowls for Hoffman?
So this would make four mug makers for the Kahiki Mrs Sapp, Hoffman, Breninings and one
more I forget their name.

Kahiki Polynesian Restaurant - Vague Recollections
The Kahiki will be sorely missed by me, having gone numerous times as a child, but even more so because back in the '60s my parents -- Bob & Dorothy Breining -- made the "mystery bowl" ceramic drink bowls, from their humble little ceramic shop in the basement of our home on Broadhurst Dr. in Whitehall Oh., not two miles from the famed Kahiki. Fond fond memories of the building's long "fish tank" on one side or a one-of-a-kind, building-long "rain forest." It would actually "rain" several times an hour. Or the grass skirted woman who would "offer up" to the gods the "mystery bowl" drink, as she would deliver the drink to patrons who ordered it. The atmosphere was absolutely unforgettable.

Join us for a new event series!

The Historical Dinner Club will feature a favorite Columbus restaurant, reimagined for one night only by Chef Alana Shock of Alana's Food & Wine. Enjoy an evening filled with history and memories as we pay tribute to one of the most famed restaurants of Columbus. The series will begin with The Kahiki.

We will open with a talk about the restaurant, there will be artifacts on display, Chef Alana will talk about her inspiration for the menu, and each guest will take home a special surprise!

The Kahiki dinner event will be Tuesday, October 22nd, starting at 6pm. The menu will be posted soon!

All dinners will be held at Alana's Food & Wine, located at 2333 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43202. The restaurant is closed to the public on Tuesdays - this will be a private and intimate dining experience! Alana's has been a gourmet food destination for over a decade, focusing on local and seasonal ingredients. For more information about the restaurant, visit Alanas.com.

Reservations are $125 per person, with proceeds benefiting the Columbus Historical Society. Reservations are limited to 40.

Thanks for posting that info tikilongbeach, We did kinda want to go
to this event.
Still can't see the menu for the event.
I am guessing that Jeff from the FOM may be there, but not sure.
The last night party for the Kahiki was AWESOME, that was $100.00 per
person.
Alana's Food & Wine is a place we like so would be good I would guess.
And the charge looks to be about the same as two drinks at Three Dots and a dash.

No way I'll be going to that. Not at $125 per person!! That's INSANE!!!!!

I'd rather go to the Grass Skirt for a full blown Tiki experience with great food and top-notch cocktails for under $50.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

"No way I'll be going to that"

Ha!

What is my zodiac animal sign?
Boy's Name: Michael Tsao


The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people's ethos making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an able person as 'Qianli Ma', a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one li equals 500 meters).

Strengths
People born in the year of the horse have ingenious communicating techniques and in their community they always want to be in the limelight. They are clever, kind to others, and like to join in a venture career. Although they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented, earthy but stubborn. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are popular among friends, active at work and refuse to be reconciled to failure, although their endeavor cannot last indefinitely.

Weaknesses
They cannot bear too much constraint. However their interest may be only superficial and lacking real substance. They are usually impatient and hot blooded about everything other than their daily work. They are independent and rarely listen to advice. Failure may result in pessimism. They usually have strong endurance but with bad temper. Flamboyant by nature, they are wasteful since they are not good with matters of finance due to a lack of budgetary efficiency. Some of those who are born in the horse like to move in glamorous circles while pursuing high profile careers. They tend to interfere in many things and frequently fail to finish projects of their own.

Nice mike and marie.
I do have LOTS to add to this thread as I did get more info at the Kahiki
auction.
That is part of the reason I go to those things, even if you don't win stuff you
may get new info.
And heck that's free.
I just don't have time to post it all right now.

Here is an auction for a mug that was made at the very end of the Kahiki.
See how crappy the mold is, and you can't read the bottom.
BUT... the guy in the auction says this is an early version of this mug.
I would guess he does not know what he is talking about.
Hope this is not a TC person.
