Great pictures skip!!! I really like the picture of Lee Henry. Was that taken recently? I like the sheild too! Is that the one that used to sway above the Tiki Fireplace in the early days of the Kahiki?

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

That picture was from last year.
And yes the sheild did hang above the fireplace.
It's the one in your picture.
Melissa has it now.

Is that photo going to be in tiki magazine?

This is Mr. Bill Sapp and me. Behind us is the Top restaurant.
A restaurant started by Mr. Sapp and Lee Henry. (Pic 2006.)
They paid the Top restaurant loan off in one year. And that's hard to do!
This is also where Mr. sapp met Sondro Conti.
Kahikis bar manager, and drink inventor.
Mr. Conti came into the Top late one night.
Bill said in spanish" If you want a drink you will have to get it
yourself"
Mr.Conti said back in spanish." Ok, thank you"
Then he went behind the bar and made himself a drink.
They were friends from that day on!

These are awesome photos of all things Kahiki! I only joined TC a few days ago, but I live in Columbus, and had only been to the Kahiki a handful of times, much to my chagrin. My father used to own The Volcano restaurant (Winter Haven, FL) when I was a kid back in the late 60's and early 70's. (There is a resurrected thread going on about it now.) When I finally discovered the Kahiki (only a year or two before they closed), we took Mom and Dad there for dinner on one of their visits. Dad asked to speak to the manager, and so we got to take a behind the scenes tour into the office and past the kitchen. I was amazed, because Dad always had photos of the celebs who visited The Volcano all over his office. I love seeing things from the inside of the Kahiki. The chairs and masks and ALL of it is so memorable! So much about the Kahiki reminds me of Dad's old restaurant, so thanks for sharing all your info with us!

Thank you, Volcano Girl.
If you would like to come over to our house and see our tiki
collection we would love to have you.
Or we could meet at the Tropical Bistro.
The Tropical Bistro has alot of Kahiki items in it as well.

My wife and I would love to meet you.
I will pm my phone # to you.

ps, Great Volcano post!
You should ask your mom about the Volcano
to get more info.

It looks like you have been a Kahiki devotee for quite some time, seeing as you know so much about the place. I look forward to getting together sometime in the future!

Skip is truly a Kahiki madman!!!! Wait to you see his back yard!!!

The Fraternal Order of Moai are having their monthly "meet and greet" on March 12th at the Tropical Bistro. Everyone is invited to attend. Maybe we could check out skips place then too! Just a thought.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

I did go to the Kahiki alot. But most of the info came
after the Kahiki closed! Some I got from here on TC,
Some came from e-bay old ads and stuff for sale.
Even more came when the Hulacats (Melissa and Greg)
who are doing a book on the Kahiki came to town
and I got to tag along on some interviews.
Then Jeff Centeral and I interveiwed Bill Sapp and
the son of Hoffman pottery.
Jeffs interveiws will be in Tiki mag soon.
Right Jeff?
So thats why I say ask your mom about the Volcano
she may come up with some new stuff.
Some of Bill Sapps family had not heard the stories
he told.

Good info, tikiskip. I will probably be talking with Mom sometime today, and I'll bet that she and my siblings will all have some stories to pass on.

This is one of the coolest lamps I have from
the Kahiki.
It has a blow fish inside it. The fish is too big to take
out so they must have stuffed it inside of the float, then
dried the fish.
