Boy, for a guy who built a house out of driftwood, anything this guy touched back in the day sure goes for a pretty penny now. But if you have the means, nice stuff. Not my auction, just noticed it...

Yeah, that auction is now legendary.People got original Leetegs for 50.- bucks, and celebrity chopsticks containers from the Hollywood Beachcomber.
Where was I !? ...why oh why did I not know about it? Sigh

What I want to know is what the hell happened to all of the remains of the UFO-shaped Don the Beachcomber that once existed here in Dallas? It is gone without a TRACE. I've stood on the spot where it once stood. Office building now. The exact address no longer exists. I can't imagine there was even an auction when it got plowed here... there's just a stack of tikis in some demolition guy's garage.

And what about Ren Clark's Village? That was a huge chunk of Milan Guanko work! All dissappeared to the Elephant graveyard of Tikis.
