Sven, we were only there for three days and I was working most of the time. The dinner at Sadie's was on the first night and I didn't get there until just before dark. Food was just ok but the Captain was buying so it was great! But I didn't get a chance to do any tikiology...

The second night I ate the best and largest plate of poke I have EVER had at The Sadie Thomson Hotel, not related to Sadie's by the Sea, wow it was good! Then even later that night I had the biggest MOUND of the best ahi sashimi I have EVER had! It just so happens that StarKist has a cannery on Pago Pago...Yes, they are over fishing, but If I hadn't eaten it it would have ended up in your can...


Third day I had a little more time off but used it to explore the island. Beautiful island but not a lot to do there. Did watch some traditional tap tap tattooing, almost made me want to get another one...



The Training Ship Golden Bear

For all you TC'ers out there thinking of seeing Samoa...I would recommend Western Samoa over American Samoa...More of the traditional culture has survived and there is more to do.

Signing out from 18 deg. north/160 deg. west...

Didn't know the Pago Pago brand was so wide spread. I actually know the former owner of the Pago pago Club in Hawaii.

Here's latest iteration of all things tiki in the REAL Pago Pago. Go to nite life to see a cool video of a tiki club.

Here's a cdool video from Pago pago's most famous tiki barefoot bar, Tisa's.

That's Tisa featured in the video on a cruise ship day.

Matchbook listing the three Pago Pago locations in Illinois.




This variant, showing a different location not on Dustycajun's version, was sent to me by one of my contacts (thanks, Gina!).

Yavohl! On Mannheim Road in Schiller Park !? Maybe we finally found that rare animal, the GERMAN Beerhall/Tiki Bar crossover?

Picked up a few nice items lately....this one is a 3.5x5 original photo for unknown location Pago Pago. I believe it came from California, note the 76 Gas Station next door. If anyone has any info it would be fabulous. I googled many 76 stations near the locations listed but nothing comes up a perfect match. I wish the photo was a little bit sharper. Mahalo, OGR

Very nice DC...you have scored some very cool folders lately. I don't know if you saw my theory on the Pago Pago picture I wrote about on the South Seas Lincolnwood, IL-Locating Tiki thread..http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=39849&forum=2&vpost=643593
I would like to think it's correct, but as you know...theory. OGR

Here's an ebay news-wire photo from the Pago Pago Club in New York City, dated Jan 1941.








I picked up this place-mat from the Pago Pago in Portland Oregon from Puamana.



Also spotted this swizzle from the Pago Pago in Burbank.



A menu from Phil's Pago Pago.



And a swizzle from Eddie's Pago Pago.

I picked up two cool souvenir photo holders from the Pago Pago at the International Settlement in San Francisco, dated April, 1945.



The first one shows three sailors on leave, enjoying some cold ones and a shot.


But what's this? The second one has a young lady involved, hmmm. Date night?

(The guy on the left looks MUCH happier!)

Back of the folder with the date.


You get a few good peeks at the interior in these photos.

A very nice matchbox from the Pago Pago in Tuscon spotted on ebay.



Also saw this matchbook from the Club Pago Pago located in Colton, CA.




Turns out the Colton Pago Pago had a sister restaurant located in Honolulu, Hawaii as shown on this menu from Arkiva Tropika.







Makes you wonder about the Colton - Honolulu connection.
