No more info, just another matchbook style.



Would like to see more on this one.

when was doing WaPo research awhile back, i got this hit, but never payed to see the actual article.

http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/washingtonpost_historical/access/128251392.html?FMT=ABS&FMTS=ABS:AI&date=May+22%2C+1980&author=By+Ron+Shaffer+Washington+Post+Staff+Writer&pub=The+Washington+Post++%281974-Current+file%29&edition=&startpage=A1&desc=FBI+Probes+Use+Of+CETA+Funds+For+%27Happy+Hour%27

sounds like the black tahiti was involved in some 1974 corporate junket scandal. it's not new, folks!!!

I spotted this menu on ebay from the Black Tahiti.

Seems as though the restaurant was pretty minimal - cafeteria style.



And the adjoining Bora Bora Bar.



The menu did confirm that the Black Tahiti was a hangout for sports stars, it was signed by baseball legend Ted Williams.

Nice! K street isn't that far either... Pity the place is gone. I might have to swing by sometime and see what the space looks like now.

Wyrdnet-- thanks for posting the picture of the glass-- great find!

seems like a band played there named the Bora Bora Bunch. which i have to wonder whether it was inspired by the Brady Bunch (starting september 1969).
