Sabu, you give good thread. (Don't tell your wife I said that.)

I'm also quite fond of the concept artwork and illustrations of these places. My favorite pieces come from the Mauna Loa in Detroit... as a matter of fact, I've only seen the Mauna Loa exterior in illustrated form, I've never seen a photo.

These are from puamana's collection, and are in
Critiki:

Here's a vintage Trader Vic's silk scarf with drawings of the fronts of the restaurants at the time. Just got it on ebay a few weeks ago:

"Sandvan" looks to me like it actually says San Juan... which would probably be San Juan, Puerto Rico, although that would be the first I've heard of there having been a location there. Would make sense, though.

Damn, Michelle, you're good. I didn't even see that. Yes, it must be San Juan. Wonder how long that one was in business?

Absolutely FAN-TAS-TIC! Wish I would have had that for the book! Must use it for Witco!

Never knew that Chicago and Portland used to have A-frames.
These must be based on photographs, the Wshington one has the same angle than the postcard p.53 of the BOT.

Ouuuh the pain, to think that before the big renovation wave in the 80s, T.V.'s headquarters used to have individual press folders for each location, with photographs and materials from day one. They were tossed.

TOSSED????? Oh man, nothing hurts worse than that... I've had some similar experiences with Knott's...

This is Mike's (aka TikiHula) pic from above for the Denver Trader Vics.



Several years ago while I was researching Denver tiki establishments at the Western History Collection of the Denver Public Library, I found a lead to a newspaper article about one of those guardian tikis being stolen.


I searched ALL variations of the date, but never had any luck finding the article in the Denver Post archives. The librarian must have made a typo when she was updating the card (dammit). Well at least now we have a visual to go with the story. Great find Mike!

I have to wonder if the missing big guy is still floating around here in the Denver area? Cool end to the story if I could ever find it (I've looked).

Tangaroa - Thanks for posting more of that great conceptual artwork. That Polynesian Performance Hall is my favorite!

Tiki Hula - Fantastic artwork on that scarf. I've got an actual photo postcard of that entrance to the San Juan, Puerto Rico Vics. Here it is, (Humuhumu, you're free to use this one and any of those artist renderings on your Critiki site if you'd like):
