The Torch is gone? Bummer, that thing was so cool.



Now, I did see this torch outside of Bongofury's Rincon Room during the Adventures in Paradise party this summer. Coincidence???

Here's a tiny contribution to this excellent thread. Not exactly the find of the century, but here's an old cocktail parasol from the Outrigger. It's all beat up, but hopefully to add a little entertainment value, I took some license and pasted in two drinks from DC's menus on page 1, that seem to show the same umbrella.

That's awesome Aquarj,
the way you put that together it looks like a postcard that would incite a bidding war if it were real.

I found this image on the web a few months ago but I neglected to write down the source. Definitely not my favorite matchbook but I wanted to include it anyway.

I was at my Mom's house today looking at some old photo albums. A nice walk down memory lane. Well what do ya know? I found this old 1970 photo of my mom in front of the Outrigger. From now on whenever I look at old photo albums I will be keeping an eye out for tiki.

Abstract,

Nice family photo find on the Outrigger. My mom used to take me to Cannery Row as a kid too, I'm sure I have seen the Outrigger.

I found this photo of the 1978 fire that destroyed the Outrigger. I added some daytime shots for comparison.







You can see the Outrigger directional sign on the left and the A-frame on the right.

I saw this Outrigger table lamp on ebay a while back, but did not buy it for $100. It was advertised as being from the restaurant.





I wondered if it was really from the restaurant or a homemade job made from the mug. I looked at the postcards, and Bingo! There it was at the back of the table on the close up posted by Chub.



Have not seen one of these before, should have grabbed it!

A great and rare artifact. I wonder how the owner got it.

Spotted this beauty of a dinner menu from the Outrigger on ebay.





I dig the flying fish!

Found a few more images from the Outrigger that clarified for me how the restaurant was originally laid out.

I got this postcard from Cannery Row has a view of the Outrigger restaurant.


It shows a series of repeating A-frame structures on the side of the building.


Then I found these photos from the 1978 fire that show the lay out from the street in relationship the the Monterrey Canning Company building.



In this close up you can see the A-frame entrance from the parking lot area that goes into this side of the restaurant with the repeating A-frames.


This is cool, the same photo after the fire with the reconstruction of the building.



And lastly, there was an album made by Jerry Winters under the Mark Thomas Outrigger label.



Winters was a lounge act at the Outrigger who compiled the record from his most requested songs.



The back cover has a nice rendering of the A-Frame.


The play list.

How obscure can you get! That should be added here, too:
