Name:Bretton's Bali Hai
Type:restaurant
Street:1215 Baltimore?
City:Kansas City
State:MO
Zip:
country:USA
Phone:
Status:defunct

Description:
I found the mug shown
here at TikiRoom.net and in this post here at Tiki Central asking about it. So I did a little reserach online.

There's a photo online at the Kansas City Library showing Bretton's Restaurant at 1215 Baltimore in 1955. Nothing special. Have a look.

But in a 1957 article on tips for visitors to the city, \"Breton's Bali-Hai Room across the street from the Muehlebach Hotel between 11th and 12th on Baltimore Avenue\" was recommended. This would seem to be a different location (though close) from the original Bretton's.

This is all I know . . so far.

Here's some general info I found online about Bretton's Bali H'ai last year. It's from a 4/19/01 article in The Pitch: Bretton's founder, Max Bretton, was a rabbi before he went into the restaurant business in downtown KC. Bretton's was open from 1945 to the mid-1970's. The Bali H'ai Room was added in 1954 and served Cantonese dishes.

Here's the Bretton's mug that just sold on eBay for almost $70. (Yes, I have permission from the seller to use these photos for just this specific purpose.) How do we get all this put together on Critiki?

Images need to be more than 500 pixels a side, information will be posted and updated by Humu when she has time but she's a very busy young woman. I suggest hiring her to do some of her spectacular web or database design, paying her lots, then giving her some time off to work on Critiki.
