great stuff, as always DC, thanks

i have found a treasure trove of DC area polynesian restaurant ads and blurbs in an online repository of "Washington Dossier," a "society" mag that ran in DC during the 70s thru 90s -
http://www.scribd.com/david_adler_8 - i guess trader vic's and their ilk had the 1% as their target audience - anyways, enjoy:

It would figure that I got to the DC area several years too late. The outside of the TV here looked awesome.

Found this image on-line from the Trader Vic's in DC with Susan Ford dinning with the Sadat family kids.



The Trader Vic's on the Capitol had to have seen some serious Secret Service action back in the day.

DC

OK, I think that the two Tikis in this photo of Barney West are the two from the Trader Vic's in DC.

Nice find. I always was fascinated by the unique placement of these, behind each other facing sideways to the entrance, instead of flanking it frontally. I guess it was a side entrance on a hill, so the architect saw that with their size, the only distant view point to appreciate them from was from the street.

I remember hearing that when the place closed they were cut up.

This thread needs THIS photo from TIKI POP :
