Please also note that the deadline to vote in each round of the contest is 8 a.m. Eastern Time on Fridays. So get cracking. Also, you can vote as often as you like.

Good luck also to Bali Hai (San Diego), La Mariana (Honolulu), and the Tonga Room (San Francisco).

To help us forget the early exit from the historic bars contest, here's a little video from the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/video/originals/doreens-deals/sfl-doreens-deals-halfoff-drinks-and-dining-at-historic-maikai-20150309-premiumvideo.html

Found this cooooooool 1961 Mai Kai article from the short lived magazine Party - "The Magazine for fun lovers." The in-depth (cough, cough) article's main focus is on the booze and the mystery girl. Which fits the general theme and focus of the magazine. I did learn that the arrival of the mystery girl with your mystery drink was heralded with a Chinese Gong - which "plays an almost constant tune."

Behold... the Mystery at the Mai Kai:

Tatoo,

Very cool article. Here is the Mai Kai Mystery drink girl next to the Gong.


The gong was emulated at the Kahiki.




And Aloha Jhoe's had one for their Aloha Orchid Bowl.

Thanks DC for posting those pics. I never quite made the connection before with the gong on the postcards and it being part of the ceremony. Definitely gave it a nice theatrical touch!

There's no way you could have won with that picture, the contest entry has to include a Rum Barrel in it!
