Time to bump this thread. A few more photos of Don's from Hawaii.

I like the outrigger sign on this one from the International Market Place.



Another old one from the original Don's in Waikiki. Note the fernwood Tiki and Blair's sign out front.



And I also spotted a modern tumbler from Don's.

Interesting (to me at least!) that the older one was named 'Don the Beachcomber' while the more recent one was named 'Don the Beachcomber's'.

Astute observation. I believe that the sign out in front of the International Market Place is the only one to ever use the name "Don the Beachcomber's".



I think that ATP and Lunavideogames thought you were referring to the newer Don's in Huntington Beach.

Got me, is that the same Don the Beachcomber that "Hells Half Acre" was filmed?

It was probably the earlier 3 grass shacks location on Kalakaua (Where Liberty House stood) because 1953-54 predates the International Market Place by a few years.

Aloha to all of the Tiki moms out there!

DC - Do we know this Tiki was outside of Don's. Any other pictures that show that?

Yes,

Below and to the right of the treehouse. I have a slide that shows it clearly... I think I've posted it already somewhere...
