Mai-Kai Happy Talk Tiki

Mai-Kai, The Polynesian restaurant was opened on December 28, 1957 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and is grandly celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

Leslie Charteris was a regular to the restaurant when he lived in Florida in the 1960s, and even wrote a slightly infrequent column from 1965 to 1967 called Pehea Ka Piko for the in-house magazine, Happy Talk, in return for many delicious drinks and meals "on the house" at Mai-Kai, as Charteris remarked, "which is only the best of the luau and rum-drink emporia on this coast." Charteris went on to note that, "It is a wonderful commentary on today’s economics that this kind of barter deal gives me much more satisfaction than a monetary contract which might be worth many times as much."

There is a Great forum with a large number of pictures and memories from the 50 years of Mai-Kai Happy Talk Tiki Tiki!
