Here's an interesting article from today's Seattle Times; it seems that the Seattle library has a rather extensive menu collection. A few polynesian palaces are mentioned in the article.

Seattle Times Menu Article

I wonder if other local library systems have similar collections? It might be a neat resource for those of you with an urban archaeology bent. But remember, as tempting as it may be, there's probably a special place in hell for collectors who steal from the library.

Great Article regardless of our local availability, Humuhumu!

I can't imagine that the Greenville County Library has even one decent Tiki Drink or Food Menu. Will that assurance, however, keep me from checking it out personally? Nope! I Think Not!

If you are ever in Providence, RI you should stop by Johnson & Wales University's Culinary Archives. Back when I graduated they had a HUGE collection of menus. I understand that the archives now comprise over 500,000 items including more than 4,000 menus from around the world from the collection of Zack Hanle, Editor-at-Large of Bon Appetit magazine. Perhaps a catalog or other info on O.M.C lies buried in the stacks waiting to be discovered. I understand that they have a borrow by mail program but only for students/instructors/alumni.

I posted here about a collection of menus in Hawaii, but it never occured to me to check locally. And it would never occur to me to read a local Seattle paper. Thanks, Ms H. I should scurry down there before some rat bastard does rip of the a menu or two.
