Tiki and Disney go hand in hand.

WARNING! Go to the bathroom before reading this post - it's a long one!!

Last Saturday, my friends from Florida as well as my sister and brother-in-law decided to get in touch with our inner Tiki and met for dinner at Bahooka. This place is so cool. I have to say that the food was nothing special - adequate at best but that's not why you go to Bahooka.
You go there to be totally immersed in the Tiki experience.

I will apologize ahead of time for the quality of some of these photos but I included them so that you could get an idea of how great this place is.



There are aquariums EVERYWHERE and that really adds to the atmosphere.



As we were being led to our table (which was in a jail cell) we walked by Captain Jack!


Here is a shot of the menu.








My pulled pork sandwich.


I know somebody out there didn't go to the bathroom like they were supposed to!
You better go now.

I love what they did with these antique gas pumps! I think there were four of five of them.







There are several celebrity photos on the walls...





They have a large fish named Rufus, who is currently 34 years old!
Here is a video I found on YouTube, taken a few years ago.

After dinner, we went to the Grand Californian where my friends were staying and I decided to take a few shots from the balcony.









Boy, that was a long one! Hope you all enjoyed it.

How fun was this. We had a couple of dates at the Bahooka, but that was 40 years ago, and I don't think the food was much better then. It was always a fun night. Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

I used to drive by this place 5 days and always wanted to stop and go in. Now after your report, I think I have to go (to Bahooka.....not the bathroom!)
