Hi Vern -

I just came across your post while searching for info on the Mai-Kai in Diboll, TX. -- My father-in-law worked there from 1972 - '74 while attending school at Stephen F. Austin. Joanne Appleton owned the place. Apparently speed was the thing, and he says they'd go through 1,000 drinks @ $0.90/per on a good night ($0.50 for a draft beer). Bourbon & Coca-Cola was the popular drink, as were the steaks. Sadly it wasn't a classic tiki joint.
