Aloha,

I sure like the green one they got Hiltiki! I'll be adding those to my quite focused collection soon. I was just invited to the Tiki's Grill and Bar 9th Anniversary party next month!!

Aloha,

I got a new quote from Jeff "Beachbum" Berry about "Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs"

"Page after page of Hawaiian eye candy ... thanks to Phillip S. Roberts, now the armchair Tiki traveler can finally take that island vacation through time."

Mahalo Jeff!

Actually we saw SOMETHING truly AMAZING.

As we passed the Hawaiiana Hotel, workmen were re-installing a Tiki into it's original hole. They had found it in a back storage room. It is now proudly again standing at the entrance of the hotel (Now being used for student housing, btw).

They also gave us some wood bits shaved from the base to make it fit. I'm not home, but when I get back I will post a picture.

Also btw, Tiki's Grill and Bar where I am right now, has TWO new SWEET MUGS.

Best,

Phillip




I'm still in the process of editing those pix, Phillip, but I should have them up soon. As soon as I stepped off the plane in L.A. I was buried under a tsunami of work.

I didn't realize that "Pele's Wrath" mug at Tiki's was a new one. Glad one of them came home with me (not my video but you can see this bubbling beauty of a cocktail in action here:

Mahalo again for giving up your afternoon to take me on your Tiki Trek. A lot of great sites!

No worries. Was a LOT of Fun! And there's more for your next trip that we just didn't get around too. I'm having some computer problems at home or I'd have posted them by now...

Aloha,

Here's another shot of the huge metal Tiki at 'The Canoe House,' at the Ilikai Hotel circa 1968!



I'll be giving some more tours later in the month! If you are coming to town, I'd be happy to meet up with you!

Get the Book at Amazon!

Thanks Julie!

I've always wondered if that stone/cement Maori-influenced piece at the International Market Place might be an Eli Headley work. It used to be by the banyan tree at the Food Court, but was moved after the root growth threatened to tip it over. Ben?

On another subject, we've lost another... Freddie saw an ad on Craigslist with this photo and a price on the carving that had once been the 'Honalua Surf' shop at the Outrigger. It had spent it's last few years in the beach access alley and you can see it in Waikiki Tiki... Also, I have no idea who the model is...



I checked it out Sunday, and GONE, Daddy GONE.

Aloha!




So, I'm browsing the internet and I come across these great shots of a Tiki shop of this JGKlein dad's photos from 1959!



And this cool shot of Hilo in 1959

From a 1963 English shop window ceramic display...What's that under the table?

I just picked up my copy late Thursday afternoon at Hilo Hattie - 700 N. Nimitz, enroute to HNL and headed back to the mainland/ East Coast. A delightful read and marvelous photographs...kept me glued in wonderment all the way home!

Nice work Phillip, ALOHA!
