So it seems like some of the information I received on this place was a bit off. The last name of the original owner was Morton. I now know this for a fact since his nephew is working for me. He is going to hunt down any old items from Trader Morts from the old days before it changed owners. As soon as he gets a chance to talk to him, I should be able to find out the original opening date and hopefully some stories about the tiki and more. I will keep you guys posted as I receive more information.

The original owner still owns Miguel's and Brigandine, the restaurants close to Trader Morts.

I can't provide any verification on the original date but I used to hang out on Shelter Island as a kid and went to the Kona Kai and the Bali Hai all the time. I remember seeing that liquor store there back in the 60's. I was too young for drinking but was always fascinated by it. I can't believe I have never been in there...definitely going in the next time I am in San Diego. Thanks for posting pictures.
