Hello again. Sorry that I have not kept up with things but I had other matters in life and I needed to upload images to flickr to retain copyright on further images for the family.

But I found the Zombie Hut Menus, both lunch and dinner and have uploaded the entire dinner menu to flickr along with a VERY rare image that was found inside the menu along with a stack of original Zombie Hut stationary.

I was asked by a member here if I had any images of paintings on the wall. That was found inside the menu and shows an Ed Leeteg painting. While it's not the best photo (zoomed and cropped) you can see the image and style well enough. If anyone can recognize the painting, let me know!

Wow!! That's a great image of the interior. I'm not sure about the painting but what about that great mural. Almost looks like a Shroud of Turin image in the mountain. Thanks for posting a rare look inside of the restaurant.

Yeah, you don't see stuff like this anymore. The mural really surpised my friend who grew up at the Restaurant. He said he didn't remember it.

I made a mistake on another post I should clear up. I said that the Zombie Hut had been remodeled at some point, and while that may still be true, it wasn't for my comment about the tiki mask on the floor. Turns out that there was a banquet room I believe. Separate from the main dinning room, where dancers performed nightly and tiki bar that was just off the main room. The image that is already here of the luau postcard is in the same room where the tiki mask is on the floor. I matched the door and wall from that photo with family photos.

I posted my velvet over two years ago way back on page one. I never got around to posting a pic of the signature. Now with all the information gathered by folks on collecting and finding velvets maybe someone can help me decipher it. I'm not sure of the age but it is a good size painting measuring 33" by 28". I hoping someone may recognize the artist painting style. Here's a pic from my original post and a closeup of the signature. Thanks.

I found this in 2004-05 at the Niles Antique Fair & Flea Market from a couple guys selling a bunch of stuff on a vacant lot. I really love this frame, the girl is ok there is a small tear but I don't mind because I got it really cheap. It measures 24"x37" including the frame. I've seen this same velvet in a picture of someones bar here on TC.(If you've never been to the Niles flea market the main street is filled with antique sellers and the back streets are full of yard sales, literally hundreds) I haven't been out on the main street in years.

Not sure if everyone saw this on EBay. It just sold today for $180.27. The seller was out of Texas so I am not sure if any of you are that person-but great job on the auction if you are!

Regardless I really love this painting and wanted to post it here:


And the signature :





Hopperfonda is the seller's ID btw.




FYI this painting is based on Susan Bernard's Dec. 1966 playboy centerfold. She was also the victim in cult movie classic "Faster Pussy Cat! Kill! Kill!".

I received these from my neighbors wife after her husband passed away. He was in the merchant marines in the phillipines. I don't know much about them other than they are on velvet. If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.

They were painted by Ben Alano in Manila.

I sorta understood that from the authors name that I took a picture of. Anyone have idea of price, year they were painted, or sentimental value?

Found this today, my first velvet:

It's about 22" x 28"

Signed "Rodriguez Hawaii"

Only info I found on Rodriguez here on TC was from an old Bongfury post about her selling paintings under a banyan tree.

Buzzy Out!
