Oahu's last tiki bar is up for sale

Looking for a change of career? How about taking over the last tiki bar on Oahu? The La Mariana Sailing Club has been serving up umbrella-festooned drinks since 1955, but now the owner, 92-year old Annette L. Nahinu, says it's time for someone else to take over. She'll hand you the keys to the place for a measly three million bucks. The bar is down a dirt road on the outskirts of Honolulu, and it's a veritable museum of tiki art and culture, filled with decorations from the original Trader Vic's and other tiki cool spots that are no longer around. There's a full article in The Honolulu Advertiser newspaper.
