Just out of curiosity, is the building designated as an historic landmark?
If it is, the owner's hands may be tied as to what they can do with the property.
I realize the management of Don's may not want to stay after dealing with all of the BS, but a strong historic society of Huntington Beach could cause the owners of the property some major pain.


The Kahiki was a Historic landmark also, correct, Skip? How did that work out?



Sorry if I struck a nerve. I mainly deal with older homes and occasional commercial locations.
Here in San Diego we have
San Diego History Center and SOHO, as well as the HRB. There tends to be a lot of arguing before something of interest gets torn down.
Case in point: the California Theater, March 29, 2016, April 4, 2017, May 23, 2017, March 30, 2018

I realize this is more about the Don The Beachcomber restaurant than the building itself, but it sounds as if they're moving to another location so that leaves an iconic structure on its own.

After looking at Huntington Beach Historical Society site, I have a feeling the building is doomed.

Well, I guess since Don the Beachcomber events and the OC Weekly posted that the the place is closing, I can finally say my part. First of all, I'm sorry for all of the cryptic depressing posts... this is one of the hardest things that I've had to go through... losing a restaurant... I know, it sounds insane, but 8 years of performing there, well over 100 shows, a commercial filming, Monday night meet ups with Art and friends, two Hula Girls' Burlesque shows, four Curse of the Tiki Halloween Variety Shows, the Hot Rod Luau with Agent Orange, two Tiki Highways, more New Years Eves than I can recall, and so many days and nights with friends at the Tiki Marketplace, Birthdays, graduations, and even some wakes... it's gut wrenching to lose. But from its ashes, will rise Don the Beachcomber in another venue. It won't be mired in the weight of such an immense space or a landlord who is constantly trying to get them out. I've known about this fate since we 'saved' it the last time around. I knew it was coming. It doesn't make it any easier... but this weekend is a celebration! A celebration of all of the times that we spent under that roof together.

I sincerely hope that you will join us this Friday night for a proper Hula Girls' send off to our absolute favorite place. A place that The Hula Girls have called home since our first show in Oct of 2010.
Oh, and for the gods' sake, don't steal anything, it's all moving on to another location. This weekend is gonna be a fun one! Aloha!

Interesting. I quote Inspector Sidney Wang (Peter Sellers) in Neil Simon's comedy "Murder by Death," --- "Iss confusing!"

Have a drink, party on, look good, cast a pose, take a pic, post it to the socials, and when your generation finally dies leave a long trail of digital images on someone else's server, showing you were there to intake ingest and consume, but never lift a finger to preserve what's worth preserving or keep it going for another generation or leave anything better than when you first arrived.
