If you didn't know, I am working on a biography of Donn Beach.

Website is here: Searching for Don the Beachcomber

I'm pretty far along with the manuscript. Tiki Tom D (Tom Duncan) was a great help as researcher.

Timelines are very hard to pin down due to the publisher's timeline, but I think it will be out next year.

I am looking for a bit of help now from the community. I have created a spreadsheet of the drink menus I have with the drinks on the menu and their prices. Those with dates are important. Otherwise I key off prices to get as close to chronological order as possible. I'm trying to figure out when each drink appeared on the menu.

So if you have a menu with a date, PLEASE share. That is, a hand written date, indicating when the person visited. Earlier menus are better. At some point it doesn't change much. Please message me/email me if you have something to share. I need images of the drink list with prices, and the menu itself to define it and try to get an order.

This project requires a village. I need quantity.

Sorry I can't help, Swanky, but just wanted to say Thanks for your efforts & I can't wait to read the book when it's complete.

There are some menu pix in this thread, but I'm sure you've seen them since you posted in it.
