The Tiki Central thread on ads for Polynesian Restaurants had me diggin this out to scan the ad for the Mai Kai. I am also preparing to take a lot of my collection to Hukilau. So, I decided to scan some of the images for this guide. 1957 is really a peak year for vintage style and there are some great views of the time here.
I had to start with this killer restaurant. Somebody tell me Doumar’s is still there and looks just the same! Click the image for the mega view.
A color postcard of Doumar’s Drive Inn. Man I want to see this place at night!
The Bahia Mar, host to Hukilau 2004 and 2005 and where the action will be on Friday night this year.
Yes, you can bank from your car looking just awful like this woman!
Enjoy deep sea fishing!
Mid-winter ice shows!
Causing a Hush when you enter the room!
Here you are arriving by plane!
And maybe stay or dine, etc. at the Yankee Clipper, which is the host hotel for this year’s Hukilau. They had a Polynesian review on the top floor back then.
Enjoy yourself Two Fathoms Down
And of course, visit the newly opened Mai Kai!
