I don't know what kind of wood it is. It's real nice though. Thanks Ben, wait till I put up the next few pics of the Bahooka, those will really be a downer.

I've been a dumpster-diver since I was a wee lad, that's why urban archaeology resonates so much for me. More pics to follow!

I woulda loved to have gotten some BahOOka stuff but I'm really lacking storage. Just getting around to using my Kon Tiki Tucson leftovers from when I revamped it back in 2006. Pics here... http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=46506&forum=4&38

If you've ever had a Flaming Bahooka Bowl, then your straw came out of this bad boy. The long straw holder.




If you ever had a meal at the Bahooka, then your menus came out of these bad boys. The menu holders.




About a dozen of the chains from the Bahooka, including some that held up tables.



Bad boys!

Tiki Al was just at the former Bahooka and posted some pics on Facebook
of an empty gutted building, there is no sign of Rufus or a 2000 gallon tank
Tiki AL was not able to find out where Rufus is located
anyone have info on what happened to Rufus? he was obviously moved out of the building.

I thought in all of the emails being sent that someone posted that Rufus was being transferred to the owners house while the interior of the restaurant was being gutted. Who knows how that went?
I hope the other fish got some new homes too.

My understanding months ago was that Rufus was to be moved ONCE due to the fragile aspects of a new tank. I never heard the owner had a place at his home. There were specific people caring for Rufus there formerly from Bahooka at the site. Anyone know where he is and his condition? I don't want to jump to conclusions but if there is no accounting as to Rufus' health I think the press would be interested in this update!
