The Post Office boxes at the front of the Bahooka. Now part of my collection.









Taking down the bamboo.

Does anyone else feel like we are watching someone strip the bones of the dead?

At least it looks like they are taking their time removing everything from the building. They could have just went in there tearing everything apart and have it cleared out in a week.

The point is to NOT tear everything apart and destroy it. They decided to not keep the PO boxes after all, so I grabbed them. As well as the bamboo.

Feel free to stop reading this thread then, as I will continue to post these Bahooka pictures. You'd rather this stuff end up in a dumpster? Where's your "Tiki Ohana"?

As with everything I have ever said to you, you have continuously missed the point
I for one, am very bothered by these pictures of the destruction of the Bahooka
and your boasting of new additions to your collection, what are you going to do with a wall of
old mailboxes anyway? there is nothing Tiki about them.

I find it all rather insensitive to those here on TC whom would rather keep the old memories of the place intact
without seeing it torn apart on its way to becoming a Chinese restaurant, Am I the only here
who thinks so?

ATP,

In Fez Moai's defense, I'd rather see those mailboxes going to someone's collection than into a construction dumpster. I understand that people who visited Bahooka may suffer some distress at seeing it being dismantled,but I have a hard time seeing how it's different than all if the threads on here showing pictures of abandoned tiki locations that have fallen into ruin.

It is sad to see the destruction, but what's done is done.
I also like to see as much of any tiki joint as I can dead or alive, so
thanks for posting the pics.
It's odd how the stuff in a tiki place can look very cool when the place is open
and all of the décor intact, but then you take one part out get it in the sunlight
then bam this thing don't look so cool any more.

Plus I bet nobody really took the time to look at those Witco like posts while Bahooka was open,
too much else to look at.

"I'd rather see those mailboxes going to someone's collection than into a construction dumpster."
I think that's kinda rare these days, though I think Alan Zhu would crap himself if he knew what
this stuff is worth.(I bet you could get at least $300.00 or more for those boxes)
He wants $100.00 bucks for old fish tanks, then I'm guessing (by the prices you fez are selling stuff for)gives the décor away for cheap.
Alan Zhu does not sound like a guy who is on the ball really.

Keep posting the photos Fez I like em.
In fact some close up photos of those Witco like posts would be nice.
Those would be easy for anyone to make for their home bars as they are just a hunk of
wood with some chain saw cuts on the sides.

All drama aside ( ATP . I'm glad the Bahooka Stuff is going to People rather than the dump. I come from a Beachcombing Family and like to see stuff getting re-used. Long live the Bahooka in memories and peoples collections!!
