A great thread. I recently got this menu from the Lanai, which was the precursor to the Hawaii Kai. It clearly shows the Monte Proser connection with the graphics and style that come directly from his previous Beachcomber chain of restaurants.

The cover.



The back.



The drinks




The Beachcomber graphics.





Rum story.




There was also an insert advertising the pre-Theater meal and Sunday special.

Acquired this Hawaii Kai ad recently for free S & P shakers - amazingly enough not one of the many posted by Bifcozz.

I think those are the mugs, not S&P.

Swanky,

The reason I assumed they were S & P shakers is from this previous ad posted by Bifcozz that also used the "Twin Tikis" name for the other set of shakers they gave away.




These are the S & P shakers I think were represented in my ad.

They sure gave away a lot of cool stuff.

Could well be.

Makes collecting their mugs fairly easy too.

A little ad that I just got from the Hawaii Kai. Seen on Bifcozz's post put I thought I would show a bigger scan.



Shows the tie in between Joe Kipness the owner of Hawaii Kai and his Broadway play producer era with the soundtrack give-a-way. Not something you see ever-day.

Why does their wahine look like Michael Jackson?
