Just got this nice drink menu from the Polynesia in Seattle.

The cover. Looks like you could have not one, not two, but three drinks!



Inside message.



The great drink photos, this one with a photo of the large Tiki I posted previously.



More drinks, drinks, drinks.







Looks like they used the Trader Vic's line of Tiki mugs.

Nice one! Wonder why they felt the need to add that tiny Moai next to the giant Ku...I guess it's from POLYNESIA!

Cocktails from 11:00 am

A bigger version of that Moai was located in front of the Polynesia.



A few more Polynesia art-i-facts.

Tikicoma,

Great photo, where did you find that?

Picked up another postcard showing the ferry terminal and the Polynesia.

Picked up an earlier drink menu from the Polynesian (again encouraging a three drink minimum!)



This one did not have any graphics, but there are some great drink names that I had not heard of before.



The Lost Navigator, Leeteg's Legacy, Capt. Bligh's Dream to name a few.

Not a bad appetizer list.

"A triple-peaked Polynesian longhouse on the end of a pier--with excellent food."

From You Still Can't Eat Mt Rainier by William Speidel, ill. by Bob Cram (1961).


I also ran across this YouTube film that has a shot of the Polynesia, with torches in full flame (from 14:42 to 14:47).

"1962 World's Fair Service Scouts"

aloha, tikicoma

Did they maybe have a separate lunch menu? The Polynesia menu (yellow front with shield) that I just bought has very non-exotic food choices. It lists hamburgers, sandwiches and some fish dishes.
