There it is! Bot page 187. Mae West tiki. Although difficult to tell, the pair from the Jade Tiki look like they might be his & hers. Paul Novak tiki?

The Mai Tai was put up for sale a couple weeks ago and they no longer answer the phone. I'm going next weekend to see if it's really done this time. Many years of great memories going there.

Update: Mai Tai Lounge is still open. Still busy on the weekends, opens at 4:30pm.

Humu is reporting that the Mai Tai Lounge is finally closing at the end of October.

I was in Omaha on December 26 last year, and we drove there after Laka Lono, but it wasn’t open. Maybe I can make a trip back before the end of the month. Too bad I’m observing “Sober October.”

Saw this on Facebook, the auction is in April. That neon sign needs to be saved.

Hey Omaha, the Next Iconic Omaha Landmark Auction will the Mt Fuji Inn / Mai Tai Lounge on Sat April 21st. Details coming soon!

Mt Fuji Inn opened in late 1969 and was Omaha’s first Sushi and Tiki Lounge.

Don’t miss this opportunity to own another piece of Omaha History! #Omaha #Auctions @theauctionmill

I really hope someone saves that sign. I live in Kalamazoo Mi. and have seen many many classic signs lost over the years. Our local history museum has done a good job of saving some smaller classic neon signs from older businesses around town. Hopefully someone or a group will recognize the importance of the sign and save it from going to the dump.
