The Maori looking tiki on the left is great! I guess for the money they're asking for him he should do more than just stand there and look fierce!

Yeah...those are definitely not Kona Kai statues...WHERE did I put this guy's phone number, damn...
He has a tatoo studio in Philly, and knew someone who was offering them...

Anyway THESE are nice, and now it seems even more urgent to find interior shots of the pub tiki, to maybe match them up. Ekman, can't you make contact with the owner family through the now owner of the last pub standing? They must have SOMETHING that shows the place in their attic...

Still these carvings are not SO amazing that I would shell out that kinda dough for them.

i was thinking about contacting the owner of the pub and seeing if he has anything or.. about opening up a new one!
are you talking about the tattoo tiki place off south street in philly? the owner has a nice tiki statue in the window.. i wonder if its authentic.. it does look very well done.. hmm
i'll have to get you the number..

Probably Langerman's Luau, Narberth, Pa. (I have a moai mug from there. I don't know where in Narberth the restaurant was located.)

I'm a day early on my savage archaeology thingie but I'm gonna be gone all day tomorrow. Hope this qualifies.

At our luau last night my great friends got together and had an original menu from the Philadelphia Mariott Kona Kai framed for me. Even better is that they framed it in such a way that you can still flip through it. One of my friends was hanging onto this menu since he was a little kid and he says it's ca. 1980.

Here's some pics for you menu fans. I can send full-sized images to whomever wants them.

I love how you can have normal ice cream for one price, or Haagen-Dazs brand for .50 more -- that sounds mid-'80s to me!

Cool menu, thanks for posting it.

Just ran across this thread about the Pub Tiki.

The Pub Tiki I believe closed in the 80's, it was one of 5 restaurants owned by the same group but the others were not Tiki themed.

The Pub on the Airport Circle in Pennsauken is the last remaining restaurant of the group and is owned by a member of the family of the original owners, maybe he has some Pub Tiki photos.
