...which brings up another logo transference mystery concerning the South Pacific Hallandale:

WHY does the back of that swizzle show the famous shield sign, which was used for so many Tiki temples, but NOT for the South Pacific?







As described in this post (which is incomplete unfortunately, even though the images are only from 2006):

(Answer: the design was probably offered as one of many by the swizzle company)

Hmm. So am I.




I have that same swizzle with the shield, Sven. But mine is marked "Polynesian Room Ft. Lauderdale." (Oh. And I believe that the back of Boris' swizzle is blank.)

I recently saw this old "Honeymoon" drink bowl on ebay from the South Pacific.





It is featured in this menu from Mimi's web site.



Interesting that the bowl seems to have disappeared on my menu? Must not have been popular.

Nice close up of that bowl--didn't they use this one at the Aku Aku in Vegas, too, and at the Leilani in Wisconsin?

I want a Keg 'O Rum. Has anyone found one of those? I've never seen an actual example.

DC, your menu pre-dates that one, judging by the prices.

The AKu AKu used an OMC bowl that I think is a bit different from these. Less painted details and more sculpt. I am not 100% sure but I don' tthink this is the Aku Aku fish bowl design.

Swanky,

Your right, my menu is older than Mimi's. I found a couple of photos from the Aku Aku drink menu, looks like a different bowl than the South Pacific one. Did not see anything on Ooga Mooga. Does anybody out there have the Aku Aku version of the fish bowl?

TikiPug,

Your mom rocks, what a great find. Never seen the real deal before.

I'm assuming you'll be getting one of those?

This awesome postcard mailer just went through a slugfest bidding war on ebay that I sadly did not win.

Really great info on the South Pacific and some rare photos of the interior.

Here is the description on the back of the mailer. Some of the best poly-pop material I have ever seen - the description of the rooms, the drinks, the servers are soo cool.



One side of the mailer with interior photos of the Garden of Seven Pleasures, Luau Room and Bali Hi Room. And Tiki Pug Mom's Keg o' Rum!



The other side of the mailer. The Bloody Mary lounge (South Pacific Movie reference) and the Kauai Lounge.



The amazing thing is that Kimo Captain of the South Pacific is the same bartender from the Mai Kai postcard. Swanky, you got any intel on that connection?



This is a great piece from the South Pacific.

DC

Sure looks like the same guy. The Mai Kai postcard is very early as it shows the Surf Bar. I would guess early 60s.

Great drink name there, The Miserable....

We just found two of them this past weekend!


One is slightly small than the other. One measured 5 1/2" tall X 6 1/2"
and the other is 6" tall x 7"

Great find!

I think I figured out where the Tiki used by the South Pacific and Bob Lee's originally came from:





I believe it is based on this Maori carving from 1905:
