John Trivisonno has shared one of his family’s home movies in the video section of his site, Mai Tai Online. It’s from a trip to the Hawaiian Isle Motel in Miami Beach in 1966, when he was just 1-1/2 years old. It’s a great step back into time, with a glimpse of the great big tiki at the entrance, the nifty Hawaiian Isle sign — and a long, steady look at some lovely hula dancers, courtesy of John’s dad.

    I used to love the Hawaiin Isles back in the 60′s. We stayed down the street at The Desert Inn but went to The Isles almost every night. Those were the days! Thanks for the post.
