There are things Worse than Death By Wife! Torture by Wife {or any Gender Significant Other) is MUCH WORSE than a Quick Easy Death!

Hehehe....who said anything about quick and/or easy??/

I showed it to my wife, THEN I showed her the ebay listing for the 88 dollar used one. Must have touched her "shopping" gene. It's ok, since I got a good deal.

(mental note to self.... anytime you buy something, find it more expensive elsewhere to show the wife).

I don't know if you would know, but I am kinda curious about the original distribution of the booklet back in the day. Was the booklet offered to the general public...sold in restaurant gift shops, mail order, maybe advertised in magazines? Or was it solely intended for the bar/restaurant trade...sold through liquor distributors?

Received my copy today and was very pleased with it! Looking forward to mixing myself a Wally's Kanaka Punch!

Hopefully you don't mind, I posted a link of this thread on the thread in "Locating Tiki" for The Islands in Phoenix. I imagine that a lot of folks who visit this site may not visit the "Tiki Food and Drinks" section often and that maybe cross posting may bring a few more folks here to buy.

Took a few pictures of a couple old 1962 Vintage Menu's from the Islands Restaurant and Tiki Bar that I found among some of my Dad's things. I am going to go through some of the stuff that he left to me, as I know there are many items he held on to that pertained to the Polynesian Culture and the Tiki Lifestyle that he so admired. Again, THANK you all for your interest and also for ordering his booklet! Is it just me, or have PRICES GONE UP OVER THE YEARS. Those were "Good Old Days"!

Ron,

I just got my copy and I couldn't be more thrilled! It's a little piece of history and in mint condition! Thank you so very, very much for sharing this with us. And a big thank you to your Dad and to Dick Moano for creating it.

Mahalo, Aloha and Cheers!

Mine just arrived! Like the post above, in mint condition and beautiful. To think this item had been stored away since the time of the Kennedy administration, waiting for me! I'm imagining many a night spent trying a new and different recipe! And thank you for posting the menu above! I've already recognized a few drink names from the booklet (Chinese Itch, Banana daiquiri). Thank you very much!

...thought I'd throw this out, the OP of this thread was asking about if the book had a Mai Tai recipe. It does, and it is surprisingly close to this recipe in a letter from TV dated 1956:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=37143&forum=1&hilite=mai tai recipe

I'm not going to post the recipe from the booklet due to the fact that I'd hate to cost Ron any sales of his booklet. But I can tell you that is is close.

Once again Ron, Thank you.

BTW - I sent the OP a booklet at no charge. The Least I could do!

I received my copy a few days ago as well. It is in great shape minus a few dents caused by my postman jamming it in the mail slot with mere junk mail. Nothing a few rum stains can't fix. Anyway, this thing is awesome and you've been just great. Here is a picture of me trying out the Islands Sour.



It is delicious and my wife loved it too.

That was already one of my favorite mugs because I like Colorado tiki stuff and there is an Phoenix Islands/Tommy Wong's Islands connection. It is outlined in this old thread:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=4380&forum=1

Thanks for everything and keep posting anything else you find.
