Mahalo TB and mangogirl. Nice work. Wow, there is a ton of stuff in there. Interesting pics and I like comparing these these two. Almost the same angle and that old beam, still going strong.

TB and Mangogirl,

Thanks for posting those great photos. Hope to see more coming.

This is a comparison of a photo that the late Bifcozz posted in the Zombie Village thread of the bar with the one that Mangogirl just posted.





Looks pretty similar to me. Wonder if it was mislabeled as Zombie Village or if both places had the same layout.

Good question! Looking at the ship's wheels closely, they seem to be two different ones - so I'd say one place was modeled after the other.

Man, I wish I could zoom in and enlarge every shelf in that curio shop!



"We will trade for South Sea Curios" - I say!

I think you're right guys, I always thought the Zombie Village shot was mislabeled, but now it definitely looks different from Skipper Kent's.

Here's some renderings of Zombie Village:



...the two bars looked so close to each other, they could share artist's renderings:

I got a new PC recently - another angle of a dining room...




Notice the famous dinner menu and smaller drink menu... as well as two Genghis Khan mugs:


Enjoy-

Tradr Bill,

Great postcard, glad you won it. Really shows the amazing interior landscape skills that Skipper Kent brought to the place. He obviously had a green thumb (as exemplified by his Garden show entries).

I picked up a nice little 3 set of luncheon and drink menus from Skipper Kent's.




I don't remember seeing this little piece of advice for longevity.



The choice is clear....RUM!!!

I also like it that a Polynesian Maiden would help you with your buffet selections, what service.

Phew! I'd be dead by now if I wouldn't have started early! Next: How the VOLUME of rum you imbibe greatly extends your life expectancy!
