You can still get that Bahi Hut napkin if you are brave enough to visit the place.
Geeez... You make it sound so bad.
I don't think bravery is an issue. Its not in a bad neighborhood, on a main street, in a Best Western parking lot for crying out loud. It's in Sarasota, not "Escape From L.A."
Sure, it's dark inside. Many older bars are. Yes, it smells like 40 years of stale cigarettes. It is tiny.
But the staff is friendly and they make some of the strongest drinks I have ever had (other than at Wally's in Orlando, of course).
I went there all the time when I was in college and never feared once for my safety. Walked home many a time. I've been more scared in the parking lots at Downtown Disney at night.
They still have the napkins, and according to Tiki Road Trip, they are still using the big batch they ordered many decades ago.
So never fear everyone. Stop by there and patronize a very old, dark, small, sometimes stale smelling, classic tiki-ish bar. Have a stiff drink. See for yourselves why it has been there so long.
And get yourselves one of those napkins before they finally run out.
