I was excited to find a reference to the Rum Runner located in the Port of Los Angeles. Could it be another hidden Tiki spot from the Specialty Restaurant chain. It was used as a set location for the 1972 Mod Squad episode entitled "I Am My Brothers Keeper".

I found a You Tube clip of the scene that was shot here Rum Runner

A bit disappointing, marginal 1970s nautical décor. And what about that waitress costume!

I read that the Rum Runner burned down in 1976.

Now, onto what about that Castaway in Pomona ....

Aaaah! Missed that little credit. Cool scene! Note: Always yell at a suspect from 30 feet away so that even if he is on drugs, he still has time to make an escape

That interior looks like a set, to bad we didn't get to see more of the exterior

The sea closed back in the '90's
Here's a link to a posting by Bigbro with a few pics of the sea:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=23887&forum=1&vpost=304091&hilite=The%20Sea%20San%20pedro

PS - when they closed they donated the whale skeleton to the Cabrillo Aquarium and we have pieces out for touch

Last I heard, Tally-Ho is closing (Alan said he wanted to close by Dec. 2009) but he's still open for now. Before he decided to close (retire) he would pretty much only rent stuff. Now he'll sell his antiques and nautical flotsam, but not at bargain prices yet.

I'll post my pics of Port o call later tonight after work.




I went to Tally Ho on Saturday and Allen still isn't selling anything for bargain prices. It was a lot of fun to look around and ask questions. He is a retired longshoreman and he spent a few evenings at Shanghai Red's. I bought some netting.

I remember someone gave one of these to me when I was a kid in the 1960's to put in my aquarium which I did. Sadly, the item is long lost. I lived in Long Beach, CA back then so it likely came from San Pedro's Ports O'Call. I do not remember the inscription on the stem.

And speaking of Ports O'Call, a makeover is coming
