I was excited to get this shirt thanks to Martin Hemmel.





When it arrived and I dug into my archive and found it was from 1959 and the real style of their work shirts and not just the same material, I was really flabbergasted!






The full story here.

Visited the Mai Kai last Wednesday and before that, back in early May. Both times the comfort-giving window waterfall was out of commission. However, staff, service, drinks, and appetizers were all well above average, though I do lament the fact that my favorite Mai Kai Maiden has been M.I.A. for some time. Met up with a fellow Tiki Room poster and his Mrs. Lovely company and a long-overdue meet up since I've known him via online forums for at least ten years.

I understand they closed for July 4th for repairs; it is a shame that they couldn't get around to fixing the waterfall, though.

The gardens were delightful as always, and that extra covered "tunnel"/pathway close to the non-show seating area was once again opened, adding yet another welcome layer of mystery to the hallowed place.
