Tikigreg, you win the tiki CSI award hands down. That is awesome forensic work. I really am quite impressed.

I found a handful of reviews for this place and it certainly sounds like you have nailed it. do we have anyone here from SD that can confirm this?

Also, could you try the same technique with that clear plastic stand up "specials" placard in pic #1? I'd be curious to see if any text can be pulled from it at all.

But that's assuming this is all right. Maybe that menu image is upside down. It seems good, but we may be reading into the images too much from what is assumed... I am not 100% convinced. I need to Photoshop that image myself and see what I can get out of it...

I think a South Dakota TCer making a road trip is what we need. Shoot, it occurs to me that I know someone up there. It may take time, but I could make a phone call.

I cropped and tried cleaning up the pirate face some more, but this is the best I could do. It doesn't appear to reveal anymore clues.

Well, now we have it: It's all a carefully planted hoax by Bamboo Ben!

...but really guys, great work! Reminds me of the Bladerunner scene with the holographic click-zooming into the photo.

OK, the ball is back in the California court! I called the Pirate's Table in South Dakota, and talked to Ron Beshara, son of the owner, Jim Beshara. Real nice guy that was happy to answer all my questions. I described the photos to him, with the mural and the menu. He said that the mural wasn't anything they had, and the menu was similar to an old one of their's, but he couldn't remember. So I mentioned that these photos were from 1970, and he said they've only been there since 1984.

Now for the money shot... Ron said the only other Pirate's Table he knew of was in Anaheim, possibly in the Holiday Inn. It was where his dad got the idea to open his place! So we have a connection to Disneyland as Matterhorn1959 originally posted!

I feel like friggin' Colombo! Arrrrr!!

OK, now it's up to you orange-eaters in Anaheim to take it and run!

Sabu has a postcard (or brochure?) from that Holiday Inn, what I remember of it seems to match. Sabu?

Mary Kay, perhaps? A restaurant is the least likely place to hold a Weight Watchers meeting.
