I've been busy with training for the fire academy but I had a little time to do some urban archeology and came across this little gem. Here's a special "prom menu" from the hawaiian cottage to add the post...







Enjoy and happy hunting!

TikiNomad,

I had seen that prom menu before on ebay. All the drinks served were non-alcoholic. Here are some larger images (a bit fuzzy).





The signature drink in the parrot mug was called the Polly Pokii.

What a great prom night that must have been.

Anyone know if this mug goes with the Cherry Hill NJ Hawaiian Cottage?
(found the picture out in the wilds of the internet, sans descriptive copy).

If I had to guess I would say yes. The mug is in the shape of the Fu Manchu style of mugs used by many restaurants the time.

I have it on authority that the characters translate to something like
Liu Yi sheng
Evidently it doesn't make a great deal of sense in Japanese, first character is 6, second is doctor or a physician, and third is life. 2nd and 3rd together would be a medical student.
"6 Med students"
or something like
"6 Doctors" in Chinese, as well.

Anyone have any idea what that significance might be?

Maybe it was used to serve a Dr. Funk?

I have never heard of another Hawaiian Cottage restaurant, so I'm guessing the mug came from there.

The typed font also looks pretty close to the Hawaiian Cottage mug posted by Tiki David.






Don't know if that styles was in the Otagiri catalog?

LolTiki - That certainly seems to be a possibility, but I don't know what all the restaurant served.

Dusty Cajun - Seems pretty likely.

Perhaps this is the back of a Fu Manchu mug?

I recently acquired an old menu from the Hawaiian Cottage that has a description of the house drinks and some of the dinner specials. Some pretty funny stuff in the descriptions.

The Oahu Back-scratcher and "Exotic Specialties".



The Hawaiian Queen and The Hula drinks.



And of course Pollyanna, the signature drink with the souvenir parrot mug.

The Geisha Room was a part of the Hawaiian Cottage so that might explain the Japanese characters on the one mug.

Here is another interior postcard of the Hawaiian Cottage in its Tiki heyday.



Lots of ceiling lamps and more Witco on the walls.

Just found a video on YouTube. Unfortunately not a period video, but made of of passing scans of postcards, menus, and other imagery. I don't think it's all shown in this thread so here's the link:

Nice video, but my god, how much of this decor from closed restaurants across the country ended up in landfills? Sad to think of it, but also very glad sites like Tiki Central and festivals like Hukilau, Tiki Oasis, etc. help keep this great stuff alive. Just think, we're gonna all grow old with tiki cocktails in our hands! Seriously, does anyone ever think of leaving "tiki" behind at some point in our lives? I can't imagine it ever happening.
