BTW, this awesome Bamboo Ben original, I think, is now owned by Mai Kai GM Kern. I think the matching pants went too. Incredible work!

i dunno - maybe want to get that sucker dry cleaned. That looks like a pretty absorbant fabric and those pics look like Bamboo Ben is getting his groove (and sweat) ON!

Thank you so much for the fantastic photo's Humuhumu. I dropped a Martin Denny CD in and felt like I was there. My wife and I hope to make it up to Forbidden Island sometime in the spring to sample those amazing cocktails. Thanks again. Mark @ Jeannette.
