The Parrot came to roost in the Tapahut last year by way of HBTiki when the Bahooka was selling everything because of their upcoming sale of the land. Spring ahead seven months to the January 2014 International Tiki Market Place where I had the pleasure of sharing my vending booth with Fez Moai. He has quite the stockpile of items from the Bahooka and was having some brisk sales. I took home one of the smaller barrel lights with lettering on the top that read "MEE CHUN CANNING CO., HONG KONG". Quick research shows that the barrel could be up to 85 years old. The Tapahut is still young but there's a lot of history hanging from it's beams!

Tom-very cool!
I was happy to get a parrot for my lounge area. Fez Moai is a nice guy.

Wow, that is a serious bar! The barrel looks great hanging there and I'm glad you like it. We should hit up some flea markets together some time.

I must say, I had the coolest shirt!
The Tapahut is one killer home bar & Tom & Dottie were gracious hosts. Thank You, again, for welcoming me into your home.
