OK DC time to look for stuff from The Outrigger (no longer there).




Bongo,

Nice shirt.

I came across some matchbooks from the Pismo Beach Outrigger years ago and grabbed the images. It was located at 401 Shell Beach Road. Had no idea that the place was related (by owner) to Trader Nick's. Will have to check out more info on The Outrigger. Thanks for the history lesson.

Bongo,

Found this little piece on John Nichols from a book on the internet.



Seems as though John Nichols opened The Outrigger in Pismo Beach in 1964. The restaurant used to be called Pal's. Wonder when he opened Trader Nick's?

Wish we could see the "Exotic" interior of the Outrigger. Good research DC. Hopefully there are some photos out there. Here are some of the pilings rescued from Trader Nick's.....

I recently found this matchbook from Trader Nick's featuring a rendering of the A Frame features.



Had not seen this one before.

A matchbox recently acquired showing the more modern Trader Nick's sign.





A very cool sign.

Here is a piece I just acquired from Trader Nicks interior decor. Its a mahogany carving of what looks like Neptune. Trader Nicks had more nautical decor than Tiki from what I know. I live in Pismo Beach so its great to have some local Polynesian restaurant history.


A closer view.

A little more history on the Outrigger in Pismo Beach. I purchased this matchcover from the Outrigger recently.



Close up.



The same logo Tiki that was on the Trader Nick's matchbooks.



That was of course borrowed from the Bali Hai in San Diego.



But the name on the matchover is Edward Fixen. Must have bought the place from John Nichols
