Swanky,

Best I can do.


A festive tropical interlude. An exotic safari into paradise. The magic of Hawaii filters through this persuasive friendship drink for four or more happy people. Soft nocturnal rains, mellow moonlit nights, the surging surf and the white steaks of sun-swept beaches. A mood and lingering memory.

Aaaah, I can see them now, right in front of me on the table, the yummy "white steaks"...hmmm!

Genius! Where did you whip that up so fast! Now that "streaks"/"steaks" misspell makes complete sense!

..from Mimi's site. I know, these are too cool. Has any body ever found any of these? They must have been discontinued a long time ago, I have never come across any, only those double umbrellas picks.



I was looking for a song that Bongo wrote and found this picture from the Holiday mug trade that Bogielocks gave to Tiki-Kate.



Bogielocks found some of the hanging drink lanterns!

I also spied the same one on a postcard I have.

Very good. And we can see what I suspected all along, they are really two paper umbrellas stuck together, hanging from a string. Those crafty orientals!

Those paper lanterns are still being produced. I've seen them at World Market (aka Cost Plus). And yes, they are pretty much just two paper umbrellas glued together.

Nice! Cost Plus is easy.

Al-ii was using those in the Lagoon Room the last time I was there.

Just so know I was thinking about you Al.

That's nuthin!
After a Tiki Central bar crawl, you can see 5 or 6 umbrellas stuck together in the aisles, as you're leaving the bus.
I think I saw one on EBay go for twenty bucks!

I just got this nice menu from Heddy's Hawaiian Room.



They used the images from the mural and the Reader's Digest cover for the art.

OK here is a fun find. It seems as though Heddy's survived long enough to go from late 1950's Hawaiian themed Tiki to early 1970's far out Tiki. I picked up this postcard from Heddy's Mai Tai Bar at the Tiki Supper Club.



Great ceiling and check out the Tiki sculptures on the wall behind the bar, a few mugs spotted.



TV roost and look at those bar stools.


Back of the card say it all!

Ha,how cool. Seems that in the Pocono mountains they were a little behind and didn't know TIKI was over by the 70s. What a cool period font. The ceiling looks like it it glowed yellow, and the moai masks had purple lights behind them. The color of the South Seas!
