Smilies or no smilies, I feel I must come to the honor of our Southern Mystery Girls here. You, sir, have abjectly failed to prove your assertions with easily-obtained photographic evidence. Absent such evidence, no free-thinking individual (who's ever had the pleasure of visiting the Mai-Kai) can accept your highly-subjective opinion at face value. I highly suspect that the only "mystery" at work on your coast is whether or not they're actually "girls."


White Devil, your last comment is puzzling considering
your recent displeasure with the sexual ambiguity going on at the Atlantic Trader Vic's. The last time I checked my U.S. geography, that's in the SOUTH.

Also don't get me wrong, I'm a great proponent of the Mai Kai, but to me the Molokai Maidens vibed more like freshly scrubbed University of Fort Lauderdale coeds working their way through college, than the exotic temptresses portrayed in the vintage Mystery Girl calendars I've seen. I'll admit that's probably an unreasonable expectation on my part. On the other hand, the ethnic diversity (i.e. non-White) at Dames and Games seemed truer to the "Exotic Girl" stereotype as defined in politically incorrect mid-century American culture.

Sorry for the absence of photos but I did provide a picture of my cheeseburger.

(And FYI, you can't even get a cheeseburger at the Mai Kai !! )

Those folks my thread referred to aren't from around here, anyway. They're obviously confusing orientation for orientalism. But the sports bar mai-tais must've been stronger than you remember if they made you hallucinate a greater tiki vibe in a sports-titty bar than you remember from the Molokai. Or maybe it's the Molokai you can't remember.

So 'til you can slink back over to Fort Lauderdale, here's a li'l reminder...





I understand that "Californian" is synonymous with narcissistic, but in this case I'm confident it's just a rum-induced lapse of memory.

I don't think those two work there anymore.

Now those girls got the Tiki vibe.

The last time I was there however, it seemed like half the wait staff were blondes. I thought the Mai Kai was supposed to make them wear black wigs, or is that an urban legend?

John O,
You may want to check out the newly opened "Acabar" in Hollywood, created as a place to historically document cocktail culture. I have not yet been, but, they claim to offer a rum-powered Zombie ($14) served on tap, and in the tradition of Don the Beachcomber, have a "two drink maximum per customer."
They are located in what used to be Dar Maghreb in Hollywood.
Acabar
1510 N. Stanley Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90046
323-876-1400

For $14 I hope they clean the lines at least once a week.

Acbar, that has got to be a Star Wars reference.

I Googled it and Acabar is a Spanish verb meaning 'to finish'. I'm not sure if that is what they're referencing though. The menu is global.

Hmmm... A reference so subtle that I had to Google it. I was never really into Star Wars.

"It's a Trap !!"

Actually I still don't get it.

The top photo is of Dave Levy's (the Mai-Kai owner's) daughter and I don't think she was there very long. She served us on at least one occasion and frankly, we wondered if she was old enough to be serving alcohol. The 2nd maiden probably had a big tattoo on her back, ruining the whole "exotica girl" illusion. Sorry, I don't really know that about the 2nd girl, but it happens a lot there now unfortunately.
