If they tear down the Trade Winds, I will be a little sad. I always pictured this as a swank place in its day. What it became of in its later years was nothing short of a dystopic setting for a future world - Thunderdome, Waterworld, Planet of the Apes, Oz. And that was cool too.
It would be neat to see it revived. Maybe a Mister Uke-athon benefit to bring the leis back to 3rd Ave.? In the meantime, there is this.
