Aloha peopo,

some nice wall plaques still intact...only because they are close to da roof. Oherwise I'm sure they would be gone.

The parrot walk is da bridge leading to da front door of TV from da other stores at da Int. mkt place.

Thanks for posting the photos...brings back fond memories of visting the TV Tree House in the early 70's, and also reminds me of my stays at the Waikikian and Tahitian Lanai. Is Canlis still there? Probably not...I remember having dinner and mai tais there while listening to Martin Denny.

Tiki Rider you are cool dude!! you got to eat at da tree house oweee! I wish I could have eatin there! Maybe dey will kick dem peopo out and re-open! time fo dem fo "kick rocks"! (get outa here, split) dey just destroying da place by not doing nuting with it.


Hey Tiki Rider,

The Canlis in Waikiki is gone along with the old location of Hulas nightclub next door. I think there is a Niketown in the same spot now. :( You can always visit the Canlis here in Seattle. :)

Thanks for the pics Gecko, very nice!
