Is the Hawaiian Hut at the Ala Moana Hotel shuttered, or redone and de-tikified?

Masks & Tikis







I saw three of these at the last collector show and the owner said he got them from Hawaiian Hut and was asking $550. Blackburn (Mauna Kea galleries) bought them and had them on Ebay....Listed as being from Tahitian Lanai...


$228.50

Well, they are NOT from the Tahitian Lanai as we know. They are definately from the Hawaiian Hut. I have a photograph of one in the HH in "Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs." There are many other photos from the Hut. While Spence Weaver was know to import Tahitian items like these stilts, there is no evidence that they were ever there. btw, La Mariana did buy some items from the Hawaiian Hut and are now on display there.

Too bad it was such a well kept secret-I would have loved to check it out the last time we were in Waikiki- especially since La Mariana had closed early that night due to power issues. RAZZ!

That looks like one of the posts around the bandstand I photographed during the floor show:



I'll never forgive myself that I called it the "HULA Hut" in Tiki Modern, arrrrgh! One of the three grave mistakes/typos in that book.

Here is the full ad from the restaurant guide for the Hawaiian Hut that Sabu posted a pic from earlier in this thread. The buffet and Tavana's floor show, sure looks like fun.
