What can I say that hasn't been said? Click above for my Kahiki review... it was the first tiki bar I ever went to, so it kind of spoiled me for the rest...

Those are definitely some historically important photos, for those of us tiki geeks anyway! I recall them from the days of yahoo, right?

I had to take the pictures down, as I was housing them on Reemco and it seems the blogging community recently discovered Reemco so the traffic is going through the roof. I've already had to purchase an extra 7 GB of bandwidth.

Now if only I could figure out how to make a buck out of all that traffic!

I will re-post the Kahiki pictures as soon as I can.

I grew up a few miles from the once grand Kahiki Supper Club. There is nothing to replace those childhood memories of driving by at night when the Tiki Gods in front were blazing with fire. Unfortunately, it appears that "business sense" outweighed nostalgia. I was able to take my daughter to the Kahiki only once, but she still talks about it. Four years and counting and still no ground broken on a new Kahiki like what was offered when the announcement came that the original was being sold to Walgreen's.

Huhh? Storage issues?

A 15 inch tiki,
a plate,
and a napkin?

Did I miss some items? Or perhaps there are more substantially sized items yet to be listed?

Please disclose....

The Kahiki frozen food factory is in the process of moving into their new headquarters. This is the reason they are selling some of the artifacts. There will be more items and some big stuff but I don't know exactly what at this time.

bdler3, in another thread ( http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=11001&forum=5 ) you mention that the frozen food plant and offices display some of the restaurant's artifacts. Could you (or anyone else) post some pics?

Heard an unconfirmed rumor from a friend that a large Polynesian restaurant is planned for the upscale Polaris area of the city (20 miles north of Columbus). Since I now live in Florida, I don't know if it was mentioned in any Ohio media, but if anyone has any info, please post it.
