Bigbro,

Kohalacharms won the item which, as reported by Tiki Kate, is a print on canvas. So the only published copy of this picture is in Tiki Modern? I guess copyright infringement is a form of flattery?

A form of flattery endlessly repeated since the Book of Tiki.
I generally don't mind, it is part of spreading Tiki culture, but if the seller continues to sell these, I'd like to have a word with him/her, do you still have that link? The printing and the frame should have cost more than half of what he/she made, so maybe he'll see it's not worth it, like that gentleman that was printing T-shirts with BOT designs.

Here's the link to the auction.

It is an enlarged copy on canvas, by the way. Not a painting. I asked the seller when the auction was still on. Either way, it is still nice. I thought about bidding on it, but figured if I want one, I can make it myself. It IS one of my favorite pics in the book.

Bongofury,

Thanks for the post, where did the pictures come from? I am assuming the Mystery Girl is another Mai Kai piece?

Here are a couple more advertising photo shots I have of the serving gals at a more modern looking Mai Kai.

Well, you've given me another opening for more Mai-Kai serving gals! Is there such a thing as too much? They may be familiar, but who cares. They belong in this thread.

GatorRob,

No such thing as too much. This one just in time for the Super Bowl. How about these Mai Kai gals setting the table for a quarterback to go deep for a quick score in the end zone! (who is that guy?)

That's the late Bob Thornton, Mai-Kai owner/co-founder. Looks like the gal on the left is the same one holding the Mystery Bowl in my earlier post. And where DID you get this photo?? Never seen this one.

GROG always appreciate a picture of a pretty girl, especially the women of the Mai Kai, but can you please edit the posts each time you hit "quote", so we don't have to see the same photos posted over and over down the whole page of the thread.

-OR-

Sometimes when you hit submit, if TC is running slow it may not post right away. If you keep hitting "submit", then you get multiple posts of the same thing all in a row. So, when you post and hit submit, be patient if it doesn't work right away.

Guys, some new members, especially who are also older Tiki veterans, might not be too familiar with that fandangled computer posting thang. A good suggestion, but it could have been worded more supportively.
