I did the front recently to look like that b/w pic of the original Don the Beachcomber.



I'm doing some more in the next few days to the interior.

Maybe even some more in the future.

Art Snyder rocks!

Visit this place !

Help keep real TIKI in OC...





what pic do you speak of?





If only I could build in Black and White.....

p.s. the right side pannel will have a menu box as soon as the new menu

is in. So, not exact, but kinda close...

The wife and I went by today (sunday) and she had a mai-tai and I had a rum barrel, both tasty and damn strong!. We had fish tacos and ribs and it was amazing!. Way better than sams #1 of the wimpy second version of sams, We will be back for dinner on a sat night, fun place. Also, there were dancers in the hidden jungle!.

We drove up and went to Don's for the first time yesterday. It was great! Cocktails and food were good, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the place in general looks fantastic. Plus I got my DtB rum barrel mug that I've been wanting for a long time, and a Sam's Seafood mug to boot.

Oh good! That place really deserves all the support it can get, and TC is doing a good job of spreading the love, but what Don's really needs is the LOCAL community to discover it, and this will certainly help.

If they can hang in there another year, I think they will survive...Keeping my fingers crossed.

Well, we were there on a rainy Wednesday night and the bar was pretty much full. I can't remember if the dining area had a lot of people.

I had an amazing time at Don's this past Sunday for my 40th Birthday brunch party. I had never been there before and I have to say I was blown away.

My original plan was to have my birthday brunch at Bali Hai but since they are now under renovations I needed to come up with a new plan so a friend of mine let me know about the brunch at Don's. Food was not as good, buffet was tiny in comparison but the fact there was a live show made it all worth it.

I have a few pictures from our weekend here:

the second half of the shots include some of Don the Beachcomber.
