I am proud to announce that I am one of four authors that will be releasing a book on the history of the Kahiki Supper Club. As most of you on Tiki Central know, the Kahiki was one of the grandest Polynesian restaurants in the world. We have uncovered a ton of information and interviewed a LOT of people for this book. The authors are David Myers, Elise Myers, Doug Motz and Jeff Chenault (me).

It is being published by History Press and will be available in October 2014.

Information on how and where to purchase the book will announced soon!

There will also be various events leading up to and after its publication.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

That's great news, Jeff! I, among other things, will be looking for cocktail recipes from the Kahiki. Your book will be a great way to help preserve the memories of the Kahiki.

Excellent, Jeff... a most worthy endeavor! Really looking forward to getting a copy of the finished work. Now, if we can just put Swanky on a writer's sabbatical so he can finish his volume on the Mai-Kai...

Here's a picture of Bill Sapp and Lee Henry, I took just a few months ago.



They were very happy to talk to us about the Kahiki's early days and are very enthusiastic about the book.

They still like a good cocktail once in awhile too!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

That's great Jeff. I know you have always had a real passion in preserving the history of the Kahiki. I'm so sorry that I just missed seeing this grand temple in person. Now, and least I can see what all I missed out on in your new book.
