This thread originally started as "JOHN-O's Guide to the SGV (when visiting the Bahooka or Oceanic Arts)".
It was my attempt to share the San Gabriel Valley's mid-century historic, kitschy, and divey with my fellow Tiki-philes. Along the way something really cool happened. Based on my inclusion of Embers Lounge, BigBro and Sabu were able to identify some new people and places in LA's Poly-Pop history.
This is a topic that deserves a thread of it's own. Plus I want to take my original topic and have a separate place where I can add to it. My SGV Guide will reappear as a new post.
So for now this is the place where you can post the following:
1. Any background on the artist Frank Bowers.
2. Any information on Joe Keawe's Hale Hawaii bar & restaurant in Wilmington.
