I remember this place well. They had a Sunday all you can eat buffet for the low price of $4.95! This was in the 60s. They also had a great drink called the "Skindiver" which I would consume many of. The food was very good and fresh as it was crowded and there was a turnover of all of the items.

Miss it.

It sounds wonderful. And look at the cute tiki-drink-sipping turkey with the little napkin tied around his neck! I love it when advertising anthropomorphizes the food items being sold. It's very weird if you think about it, and yet it's such a common practice. I bet someone could write an entire book just about that topic.

So who’s going to tell Mr. Turkey that he's a little mistaken about this Thanksgiving dinner invitation?

The Flamingo in Santa Rosa "appropriated" the Luau 400 mask for their menu. HA!

DC, what is the date and source of that image?
The Flamingo is still operating and in fact I stayed there several years ago and it is awesome. Highly recommended to anyone who is staying overnight in that area (northern california one hour north of SF)

Found another old ad for the Luau 400 on flickr.




They borrowed that Wahine image from the South Pacific menu from Florida.
