Two chunk swag lamps as well. The red one is blood red and looks like lava. It really compliments the cool blue of the other lamp. Sorry again for the crappy pics. Again these pieces seem to work well for dim mood lighting.

Glad to see these updates. The Hukilau Lounge was always one of our favorites. Sorry to hear about the fridge!

An early birthday gift from my wife. An inert XM388 ATOMIC PROJECTILE !!!! Made in the mid 1950's and used with the M-29 Davy Crockett Weapon System. What could be more 50's than Davy Crockett and nukes? Made to be shot down range with a recoilless rifle to a distance of two miles. As rare as hen's teeth and super cool. It will have a place down in the Hukilau Lounge as a tribute to the atomic age.

Uh, Trav... are you sure that thing is disarmed? If you want to be haunted by what is now in the Hukilau Lounge, read this: Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety by Eric Schlosser...

Happy January birthday to you, my friend!

-Tom

Thanks Tom and a happy birthday to you as well. No worries in the lounge. The XM388 made it home on the pothole riddled back roads of cold Michigan including a stop at the McDonald's drive through. This piece is very rare only 2,100 of the originals we're made and 200 launchers so not many training versions were made or survived. Defiantly not tiki but I love it and it will be an awesome conversation starter in the Hukilau.

I love old bombs!
Have one here someplace.
But... I saw these last week and thought of you.
The French made bombs?
I thought they made love not war.
The first one was $250.00

Unfortunately the shirt does not exist, but it would go well in Hukilau Lounge.

Trav, what a neat place! I like the bomb myself, and have one for my future lounge. That nuke is so cool! Love that pic with the M-48 tank in the background...now to figure out how to include one of those!

Thanks guys! The era that Tiki was popular doesn't just live down in my basement lounge. It's loose in the whole house. Here are a few pics of my galley kitchen. BEHOLD!! My TAPPAN FABULOUS 400 with VISUALITE technology. I use this baby nearly every day and it works perfectly .




Here's a shot of the dining nook. The table is dated 1958 and has an automatic pop up leaf built in. The built in corner cabinet and flying saucer lamp add the the feel.

LOVE the stove and the dinette set. I have one very similar to your dinette, but chairs need redoing.

Beautiful space.

I picked up these heavy brass plaques at a local flea market. They are reproductions but are small enough to add to the decor. A little nautical touch goes well in the home bar. It's always fun to have visitors find something new to discover.

And why not a harpoon for good measure.

Picked from the wreckage of a tall ship who's name is lost. It's belly torn on the reef and it's cargo thrown on the nameless sands of a forgotten Pacific island. I gladly traded the old captain of a copra hauler a half empty bottle of rum for it found at a local flea market. Rusty, crusty broken and dented. It's perfect for my bar and will soon shine again as a hanging lamp for that touch of nautical style.
