I did. There are two Moai there and a number of other carvings. At least there were last time I checked.

Waikiki Tiki was not a winner at last night's awards. More proof of a corrupt academy...



Sweet Daddy posted this shot in Bilge around 2003... See the tiki on the right? Totally different than the ones in Waikiki Tiki (about 167 pages in.) dated 1976. Were they changed every year? Must investigate...

Sure it was, it'll always be a winner, it just didn't get a silly award.

Man, colossal lack of judgement in the cancellation of your seminar! It is truly pertinent to the Tiki movement, and extremely informative and fun. That walking tour you took us (Waitiki 7) on changed my whole outlook on Waikiki! Your knowledge is impressive, and the subject matter is, of course, of prime interest to this crowd. The photos in your book are great, and your documentation is impeccable.

Very much looking forward to reconnecting with you this next week, and the Hawaiian Brian's show will be awesome!

I too am disappointed that this presentation was canceled. It's a topic that has not been shared at Hukilau but has significant relevance. There would not have been a better venue than Hukilau (or Oasis) to present this material.

Aloha,

I got a very nice phone call today. I'll elaborate more later, but things are happening...



This outtake is in the floor of the Tropicaina Cafe in Punaluu. Good food too.

I'll be at the Hawaiian Brian's show of The Waitiki 7. I'm looking forward to it. I'll have a few copies of Waikiki Tiki with me if anyone would like to get an autographed one...

Aloha,

Hawaii Book and Music festival is this weekend. I'll be there signing books both days after 1PM at the Bess Press booth. I'd like to meet Sarah Vowell who will be in attendance. I enjoyed reading her book 'Unfamilar Fishes' and suggest it if you have not read it yet. It is a history of the independent Hawaiian nation before the overthrow and annexation.

Anyway...

Today's outtake from Waikiki Tiki is from the new Hard Rock Cafe - Honolulu on Beachwalk Street where the old 'Hula Hut' used to stand. It's not as Tiki-filled as the old one was, but here is this sweet short board...



By the way, to date, NO confirmed photo's of the interior of the 'Hula Hut' (Sven) have surfaced... I am told by oldtimers there were Tiki flanking the stage and am still searching... DC? Anyone?

I don't recall anyone here ever mentioning the notorious Tiki Torch bar which once stood during the late 80s in all it's faux fauna exterior and interior glory at 'the gateway to Waikiki'. City officials were constantly enraged at having a strip bar welcoming, I guess ANYBODY. It was always a hoot, tho I somehow don't recall seeing any tiki...

I have heard some people talk in vague terms about some place like this, but I have no first hand information. I guess this means a trip to the microfilm archives at the library tomorrow. I don't imagine they would have advertised much, if at all.

No one's mentioned Hamburger Mary's on Kuhio either with their lauhala covered walls. I vaguely remember seeing some Tiki there in the early 1990's.

I did go to the Hawaii Book and Music festival today and heard Sarah Vowell's talk. I found it interesting. I gave her a copy of "Waikiki Tiki."

Phillip:

Are you going to expand to any other islands for your next installment in what I hope will be a multi-part series?

They didn't need to, you'll probably find plenty of Advertiser stories of the City's consternations at the time. 'TT bar' was located at the Northern tip of Fort DeRussy at Kalakaua Ave., a vacant lot/car rental now, I think. It was a rockin' little scene back then on the edge of Waikiki with Gussie L'mours, The Hideaway, Eggs n Things, right across the street from the Torch. The last of the REALLY good town times.

Aloha,

I spoke to Sam Kapu, Jr. This morning and he had some interesting memories of the Tiki Torch bar too... I'll ask Harry B. Soria the next time I see him too. He is often a great source of information as well. The radio guys I come in contact with at work always have a tidbit to offer... I will still go and take a look at the microfilms and see what I can dig up... It's what I do.

Chris to answer your question, yes. It is in the planning stages.
