Holy Moly! Thanks for the article from SCA magazine. That one completely slipped by me. I am an Architectural Historian at the University of Georgia and am in the process of writing a series of articles on Polynesian influences on the American Landscape. The Kahiki is a flagship example due to the large amount of custom detail and long history. Its destruction is a horrible example why local historic preservation ordinances need to have teeth.
Anyway,...I better stop here before I get on my soapbox and make a speech.

Thanks Again!

Swamp

Excellent footage!

It's still beyond description what a loss the Kahiki was.
I refuse to do any business with Walgreens.

Thanks. I'm actually surprised at how many people commented on the blog and the youtube page that the Walgreens was "an improvement."

Who the hell ARE these people?!?!?!

I am originally from just outside Columbus and my Mom still lives back there (Mt.Vernon). She is very normal and even she was upset by the Kahiki being suplanted by another friggin Walgreen's. Remember, most of us were "normal" once.

I have a DVD of the promo video that Mr. Tsao made back in '98. If anyone would like a copy PM me. It was copied directly from the betacam master by the video production house that made it for the Kahiki. So, the quality is wonderful. Lots of great shots of the interior.

I just checked out the Kahiki Web site and found that they've uploaded the promotional video done in 1999. Check out the link on the lower right corner:

A great caption in time of a great place.
