Not by a long shot,
All be it at a slower pace more and more stuff is unearthed, recipes, mugs, décor, ect.
Over the years the Kahiki tale will be told and added to, The Michael Tsao years have not been
talked about much.
Heck half the time I spell his name wrong.
But that is what's great about TC new info comes up and then the debate begins when the dust clears
you will find yourself at least closer to the truth.

Don't know if it really matters all this new info, but I think that is a good thing.

It is the unspoken truth that a lot of the stuff we are collecting was stolen. And I know people in this community who steal to this day. People will steal anything. The Mai-Kai lost a giant stone statue taken by crane in the night!

I also know most places put a mug or whatever with their name on it as an advertising expense for tax purposes.

I have been told that the Mai-Kai loses about 300 Rum Barrels some months. Those are not free. Imagine the cost and think about what it takes for you to continue to be able to drink out of a Rum Barrel mug when you go to the Mai-Kai. They are in the gift shop these days for those with a conscience. and I heard that they might start offering them for sale like they do the Mara Amu, but at something close to cost to offset the hit to the books. That could help a lot.

Matchbooks, postcards, napkins, swizzle sticks and sometimes menus were meant to go home with the guests.

Thanx for adding hang10tiki.

Now that we are fired up here are some more lighters and matches.




And Tim that is a lot of theft, wow!
My place did not have that much walking out the door that's for sure.
We did have to hide the sweet and low from the little old ladies that would fill their purses
with all they could take.

BUT, you are going to break these mugs at a faster pace than a glass glass for sure.
Bill even said that that was a problem with the mystery bowls so they did not last long.
AND I did not come close to the amount of theft they have but I never came close to
the profits the Mai Kai makes as well.

Spillage is or at least should be wrote into the cost of these drinks, maybe a
small charge is needed for the glass wear as well.
This is what credit card companies do to cut their loses due to people who don't
pay their debts.

Michael Jackson wanted you to pay for every song you download for free but we all know that's not going to happen.

It would be too bad if theft kept tiki joints from having these cool mugs.
At Three Dots they are very good about selling their mugs and don't piss and moan when
you ask them to get them for you(they have no gift shop).
