OMG swanky, that building has been there ever since i can remember, and dead serious i asked my wife about 4 months ago, while walking past it, "i wonder if that was ever a tiki place?"

that is totally cool you substantiated it!

we'll have to get there, never been inside - and it's located about 3/4 mile from shanghai village, where chef kwok in present day serves up authentic trader vic's-style coctails.

perhaps a trip this weekend is in order.

Swanky,

I have seen that matchbook a few times, here is an image from ebay.




Johnny Dollar,

Hope you get a chance to check out the building, maybe you can find out if this is where the mysterious Blue Hawaii Tiki Mug is from. Seems like we can rule out the Blue Hawaii in Wildwood as the source of the mug after the recent post on that thread.

Funny, but I always think the same thing when I walk by it.

I vaguely recall a place called Blue Hawaii. To be fair, I may simply recall the Elvis song.

Spotted this swizzle from the Blue Hawaii.




I think the Moai swizzle gives this location a lead in the answer to where the Blue Hawaii mug came from.
