Reader Eric Scherer forwarded an eBay listing (ending Oct. 26!) for a postcard of the fondly recalled Kapu-Kai bowling alley, coffee shop and Tiki bar in Rancho Cucamonga. View the auction and the postcard here.
Scherer drew my attention to wording on the reverse side (shown on the eBay listing): the area code — 714 — and the motto “foremost among Tahitian-Type Entertainment Restaurants – in food – service – exotic surroundings – modest pricing.”
The Kapu-Kai stood at Foothill and Vineyard, where Albertsons is now, from 1962 to 1994. Here’s a previous blog post with lots of great comments.
