Here is another Luau invite from the DTB on Hawaii.





What a dress code!

That dude reminds me of one of the earliest Barney West carvings. From an old Trad'r Bill post:

Thought I'd share this photo I just picked up - it's an original news photo (referenced earlier in this thread). Love the stilts, and the ship's ladder on the right:

Where on earth is that style from?

OK, here is the 24th out of 34 Don the Beachcomber locations on the list (see page 1) - Seattle, Washington, 1979 (thanks to Tikicoma for the find and the images).

The Seattle location has been listed on matchbooks and menus but never confirmed.


The confirmation comes from the book "Lost Restaurants of Seattle":


The address was the former Elks building which sold in the 1970s. The building is now occupied by the China Harbor restaurant.
