Mongoloid

Here is another postcard that I have from The Hawaiian.



I also have this menu from the Hawaiian.


Don't think I have seen the matchbook from this place, maybe you could post that.

I knew I had something a bit out of the ordinary from The Hawaiian. I dug thru my stuff and found it.

A business card, front and back.

Tiki Shaker,

Very nice, the old business cards are hard to come by. I have been enjoying your posts, keep up the good work.

I still want you to add that Mark Thomas Outrigger postcard to the thread I started under Locating Tiki

Here is the matchbook I saw on ebay.

That napkin, stains or not, allows for a much better view of the cool graphic on the back of the post card.

Maybe that place was some other unsuccessful restaurant venture (like Italian?) that was turned Polynesian because it was the rage? I like the lamps, simple balls and tubes with what looks like rattan swirls bent around them. Very tropical modern.

Yeah, I thought it was interesting how they combined two separate parts of the big logo - the tiki and the fruit bowl - to create the napkin graphic.

How cool is that...I live less than five minutes away from that Pep Boys and I had no idea that was there. I'll have to ask my mom if she ever went there. My earliest memories of that corner are of it being a used car lot, but hell I'm only 34. Nice finds everyone.

Just nabbed this matchbook from the Hawaiian that has two new pictures that we have not seen before.

Here is the exterior, looks like there was a cool patio area on the side with bamboo fencing.


And the interior, another shot of those cool lamps. Looks like some nice place mats on the tables.



Also another version of the Tiki and the Hawaiian girl logo.

This matchbook from the Hawaiian Restaurant shows that it was once owned by Don May, who also owned the Leilani Hut in Belmont Shores (aka Long Beach). A small Tiki world indeed.





Here's a link to the Leilani Hut thread.
