Well take a look at this impressive drink menu (spotted on ebay) from the Kahuna Lounge at the Mai Tai! Some great variations on the classic Tiki drinks names.
















Two more ads from Knobby's announcing that they were going Polynesian and using the Mai Tai name.





The last ad states the chef came from the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago which of course had the Polynesian Village that was opened by Skipper Kent.

I live in Indianapolis and I am fascinated with this place I even have a Facebook page for it. I have found one of the bartenders turned out to be one of my friends moms I need to get that interview posted. Where did you find those photos?
