From the Reminisce EXTRA magazine March 2015 Page 39.
Taken in 1961. Check out the cool tiki lamp. The edge of the tablecloth says "Aloha Hawaiian Room"

Picked this one up last year at a thrift store or a garage sale (don't recall which now). There is a variety of drinkware in the picture but I don't see any Tiki mugs which may help date it (or not).

The back says it cost 2.50 and came from "Reputable Service Co", 820 Second Ave NY. That price suggests to me early 60s but I'm really just guessing here!

One of the great one-off exotica albums is called, um, "Exotica," by Ted Auletta. It is on the Cameo-Parkway label, circa 1962. The liner notes indicate that he played at the Hawaiian Room of the Lexington. I wonder if there is any existing ephemera related to his tenure.
