Great digging DC!

The Ports of Paradise location looks undeveloped, but non-descript. A liquor store now. I have never found anything from there and can't recall now if that menu was the inside of the Mahi Mahi menu or a different menu. It did not say Ports of Paradise on the front.

Mr Walls said he inherited a lot of debt with the Mahi Mahi and that was the reason for the failure. Those renovation costs I suppose.

Wow, Jerry Byrd!

Here are a few ads from the Blue Hawaii that occupied the Mahi Mahi building after it closed.

1976



1978



And a matchbook.




Wonder if this really was the location that had the Blue Hawaii mugs. I think I have documented at least 8 other Blue Hawaii Tiki style restaurants.

Also a little confused on why the address changed from 95 White Bridge Road to 81 White Bridge Road.
