Amazing record, guys, I have nothing to ad.

Maybe some dates:

1934 Don The Beachcomber opens in Hollywood
1940 Chicago opens, Don and Sunny divorce
1946 Don opens the Waikiki Beachcomber because Sunny Sund has taken over the mainland operations.
1953 Palm Springs opens
1958 Sunny sells out to Joe Drown and Paul Price of the Beverly Hills Hotel
1962 Las Vegas, Sahara, opens
1966 St.Paul, Hilton Hotel opens
1968 The chain is bought by the Getty Corporation
1969 Corona del Mar
1970 Marina Del Rey
1970 Harbor Island, San Diego

A lot of these dates are from a 1971 menu, so one would assume that all other places not mentioned here, like Dallas and Denver, opened AFTER 1970.
