Bahooka is currently advertising a great happy hour deal. Mon-Fri 3-6 p.m. All tropical drinks (exluding flaming bowls for two) are $3.75. I've already been twice this week just to catch up on some sorely needed tiki time.

I recently discovered this Bahooka Menu image. It's from the Francisquito and Sunset, West Covina, California location. The image was in the Los Angeles Public Library's archives and dated 1972.

The Bahooka drink numbering system has remained faithful all these years. The numbers on the old menu correspond to those on the new, although some are missing. I was told the other night that the reason they removed some drinks was because of the lack of availability (or the high cost) of some ingredients.

In case you are wondering, these are the "Lost" Bahooka drinks:

Bahooka's Own Tabu (not numbered)

3 The Hellion
9 Hau-A-Guava
18 Wahine-Lei
21 Surfs Up
28 Green Lagoon
30 Leilani Punch
35 Tapa
41 Jolly Rogers
41A Tiki Demon
43 Moo Goo (Banana Cow)
44 Pearl Bay
45 Hula Hopper
46 Coffee Grog
47 Hot Buttered Rum
48 Creme and Kona
53 Harpoon Bowl for 4
54 Blue Hawaii Bowl for 4
55 Sadie Thompson Bowl for 4
56 Honey Bowl for 4
57 Mai-Tai Bowl for 4
57B Scorpion Bowl for 4

Of these, the Bahooka's Tabu is probably what comes in the #52 "Bahooka Bowl" and the cocktails in the Bowls for 4 (#53-57B) are all available in smaller portions. So, there are really only 15 Lost Drinks:

3 The Hellion
9 Hau-A-Guava
18 Wahine-Lei
21 Surfs Up
28 Green Lagoon
30 Leilani Punch
35 Tapa
41 Jolly Rogers
41A Tiki Demon
43 Moo Goo (Banana Cow) was replaced by a Strawberry Colada
44 Pearl Bay
45 Hula Hopper
46 Coffee Grog
47 Hot Buttered Rum
48 Creme and Kona

I'm going to miss you Bahooka!
Thank you so much for so many special memories.
May your legacy last forever in the world of Tiki.


ALOHA!

Yup. That diving helmet would be completely BLACK on a normal exposure - though I would tone it down a little here, Joe

I got to babble a little about Bahooka and the history of Poly Pop on "The Dinner Party Download" (minute 33:00 to 39:00) :

http://download.publicradio.org/podcast/dinnerpartydownload/2013/03/01/dpd_20130301_128.mp3?_kip_ipx=686199509-1362186940

This will also be on KPCC on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. (...and I will be at the Tonga Hut)
