Tangaroa-Ru, I relate to what your mother said about the Luau and Kelbos. My wife and I began dating as a result of a gig my brother and friends' lounge band played in Kelbo's Coco Bowl Room in December 1991, so there is always something special in my heart for that place. However, though the building is still in operation as a bikini bar, I can't bring myself to visit it and have the original memories diminished. Though it sounds like Bahooka's next incarnation will be closer to the original than Kelbo's is, it may still be a hard choice as to whether or not to see the update. However, if indeed Rufus and his pals are still going to be there, that might be an incentive to visit an old friend.
