These rare and sought after set of Tahitian palm tree mugs.




Dan from 'Polynesian Pottery' told me they were used for "Some kind of flaming drink..." I've wanted one for a long time, but have never come across one in the wild. I did go to a garage sale this morning in Waikiki where the lady had one of the green bamboo handled mugs. I asked how much, even though I have a few already...

"$35 Dollars." Ouch! That's a bit much and I passed. Dan estimates that they hand poured about 10,000 back in the day.


Just added Outtake from my book. Edward M. Brownlee homage...

Phillip,

I couldn't help notice how that Ed Brownlee-copy tiki above is very similar to this tiki from the Luau in Miami:



I wonder if it was inspired by the Brownlee tiki as well. Maybe from the Tahitian Lanai menu.

Very quite possible Sabu. Wonderful image...



heres another swell scene from the lot. Here's Brownlee pounding away at the Waikikian detailing the pole. Bad quality scan of a microfilm from the Advertiser 1955 insert Hawaiian Holiday. (I tried the newspaper's archive off but they couldn't locate...)and a couple of bad photgraphs

I saw this table topper card on ebay a while ago that for the Papeete Bar that also advertised another bar called the Tahitian Hut.



It was located at the front of the tower section of the hotel.






This is the first time I can remember hearing about this bar. Does anybody else have any other documentation or memories of the Tahitian Hut?

Here is another image of the Tahitian Lanai sign I found on flickr while looking for more info on that Tahitian Hut bar at the Waikikian.

A new luncheon menu spotted on a website from the Kapiolani Community College Library that has a menu collection.





A vintage shirt with a Tahitian Lanai image.





A photo from Playboy of a young lady having lunch on the lanai by the pool.

(those chairs just crack me up!)

A tourist photo inside one of the dinning huts.


A photo from the last night at the Tahitian Lanai.


It goes with this article.
http://archives.starbulletin.com/97/01/06/news/story2.html

And finally, I saw this tape on ebay from The Gang at the Tahitian Lanai.


The description: This is a special cassette recording by "The Gang" that gathered at the Tahitian Lanai in the evenings and on weekends to sing and sometimes dance a hula, with Rudy Ochoco at the piano. The introduction is by Don Ho, and the proceeds went to the Variety Club of Hawaii.

Some nice graphics, and a great spread!

After the closure of the Tahitian, Rudy & the Gang would play and sing at La Mariana Sail Club.
In 2000, a group of friends and I had the pleasure of attending on 2 different nights.
Pure old-style magic!
