Description:
Found this in a recent post from the Honolulu Advertiser and thought I'd start a thread for it in hopes that others could add to it

http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/apps/pbcs.dll/gallery?Site=M1&Date=20090415&Category=STATEHOOD01&ArtNo=903120803&Ref=PH&Params=Itemnr=22#gallerytop

Looks like a typical car hop drive-in but note it also includes "The Rickshaw" on the side. Maybe that was the bar/lounge?

Here is the caption
Kapiolani Drive In on the corner of Ala Moana and Ena Rd in July, 1968. A popular hangout in the 50's and 60's it was demolished in late 1960 to make way for the Wailana condominium.
