What was the goings on Feb 22 (a Wednesday) 1961 first day of the Kahiki?

February 20, 1961 (Monday)[edit]
Jerry Garcia, an 18-year old drifter who had been discharged from the U.S. Army, survived a car accident in Palo Alto, California. He would later describe the event as "the slingshot for the rest of my life". "Before then I was always living at less than capacity," he would write later. "Then I got serious." Garcia would go on to found the Grateful Dead.

This quote to me speaks to what happens when those great old places slowly die like the Kahiki did.
Willis & Geiger made those awesome shirts that you would see in the old safari and war movies.
Ernest Hemingway even had a shirt made by them just for him.

“Unfortunately good brands of heritage are a reflection of their original management; when they become professionally managed, they lose the spark that brought them to where they are today. I found that to be classic in the industry. Whenever they go into second- and third-generation management, they lose themselves. They no longer have the passion that was originally part of their DNA.Willis & Geiger”


Here is an odd Kahiki? Item found on eBay.
I know the seller but am not endorsing or saying don’t buy, just more of a lookie here thing.

The old version of that mug is smaller and had lots o detail.
So I would say that's an old one.
At the end those mugs were detail less blobs with the Kahiki just scratched into the bottom.

Where did you find that one?

A cool little piece of history from the Kahiki gift shop in the mid/late 80s that I picked up a few months back.

Good one Simon.
We were there that night as well, we ate on the left hand side as you walk in the Kahiki.
This would have been the old bar area. Am sure we went to the bar after.
Also took lots of video that night, wonder if you are in any footage?

Saw Jeff he and his wife and they are on that footage.
The people we talked to at the Kahiki last night party were not the folks that are on
this site now it was all the other folks who talked with each other.
Where is all this aloha we keep hearing about?

Did get to talk to Otto about the Witco we had just got, did not know what it was.
did not know about tiki news, or TC even.

Love the box, wonder if there is a suggestion saying don't close.

Am sure the FOM has the Video in some locked off thread maybe you can find yourself in it.

Thakx for posting.
