A big thanks to TabooDan and Uncle Trav for those outstanding entries. As I stated previously, that is the first time I have seen the Leeteg menu and matchbook from the Tahitian Lounge at the Waldorf. I would love to see a picture of one of the bar stools designed to look like the drum on the menu/matchbook.
I have never seen that postcard or matchbook from the Tur Mai Kai before either. I need to find those! I always wondered about the name "Tur Mai Kai". Now the mystery is solved - the owners name shown on the matchbook is Turmy Lum!
Here is another entry for consideration in the Not-So-Big Ten club.
These are from The Islands restaurant in Phoenix.
The menu graphics are outstanding and match the Tikis that were located in front of the restaurant.
The Tikis are shown on the postcard.
I wonder why they didn't use that image on the matchbook?
And to answer Slacks Ferret, my hope is to get as many entries on here as possible then I, as the creator and ruler of this post, will select the top ten (OK I may take a little input)!
