Aloha Chris,

I'm not really sure what you mean by a Waikiki Tiki "Top Ten." I haven't really given much thought to making a list...

Could you please be more specific? "Top 10 (remaining) Tiki in Waikiki to see?" "Top 10 places I wish had not closed?" "Top 10 things I wish I'd included in the book?" "Top 10 mugs I passed on when I didn't know any better?" etc...

True enough. Frankly, I will take the top 5 remaining as I am going with the wife and nino and will only get an hour or two before having to move on to the next activity. Sigh..... Not to duplicate your incredible, all inclusive tour, but maybe just a highlights version, such as the one at the Royal Hawaiian?

Aloha Chris,

I just did an one hour-ish tour for Randy and thought it went quite well. Please check your personal messages. I am happy to be "Our Man in Hawaii." If I have the time, I will certainly do the same for you or any other member who is in town.



I'm not sure this A-Frame actually existed or was a conception of a Tiki-Happy ad exec.

Mahalo for the conversation and walk. We're back in Vegas now. Fascinating history all over the place. We went to Kailua and visited Ali'i Antiques and picked up some carvings that appear to be vintage and unique. We also went to the Antique and Collectible Show at the Blaisdell Center where we met Marcus Thorn carving a 7 foot Marquesan. A guy was selling old menus from the golden age of tiki bars but he was asking too much in my opinion. There were lots of folks selling vintage photos, I hope you made it over there. We went to La Mariana twice because its like a magnet for me.

Thanks again,
Wade

Aloha Wade,

My pleasure! It was great to meet up with you guys! I did not make it to the show. I had something else going on at the time.

Phillip, thanks again for the Waikiki Tiki tour of the Int'l Marketplace. Like a fountain of local knowledge, lots of stuff there we had never spotted before! A couple pics, for the record...

Our host, in the Tahitian king's chair (did I get that right?)...

Aloha Randy,

Yes, was great to meet you and the family!



I was told by oldtimers many years ago that it is a 'Fijian Chief's Chair,' brought back by Donn from his 1956 voyage to trade goods and stock the Marketplace with incredible art. While he sailed the South Pacific, Brownlee carved n the Matson Parking lot.

Hey i got a cool glass at a garage sale a few days ago... There's a swizzle and a coaster from the Menehune bar at the Edgewater hotel in Waikiki Tiki, but here's a cool bubble glass.



Does anyone have a picture of the interior of this place?

UPDATE: ooh
More bad TIKI news.

Aloha,

Very buzy, but I did get to hang out with the Tikimaster at his warehouse for a few hours last week. Had a nice chat!



Enjoy Oasis. I'm stuck in Hawaii.

Aloha,

Did a couple of tours and met some good people! Played them the VOICE of Don The Beachcomber! I enjoy seeing their reactions. If you come to Hawaii, look me up. Always happy to meet like minded people!



They are off to Kauai... Of course they will visit Tahiti Nui.
