Nice find on the menu. Looking forward to a better scan. Interesting to see the last 4 locations which I had never heard of before. I am pretty sure the last three never existed, but the location in Peoria is interesting in that it lists an actual hotel. It also does not list Seattle, makes you wonder if that one was real. Maybe some Tiki field agents in that area could take a trip to the library for some research.
It wouldn't be the first time that menus listed places that never opened – like the famous Ports of Half Moon Bay Island example from Shelter Island in San Diego.
I also had posted this ad from 1981 when the Don the Beachcomber corp. was looking to open restaurants in Florida.
Cool to see the two locations in the Denver area. According to Zulu Magoo, the Cosmopolitan Hotel location closed in 1984 and the Aroura location operated from 1981 to 1986.
Picked up this little beauty today, a Don the Beachcomber "credit card"
Very cool, never seen one of these before.
Thinking of Art today.
