Humuhumu’s description

Jade East operated from sometime in the early 1960s until 1975. From the outside, it looked like a fairly standard Chinese restaurant of the day, but inside it was the full Polynesian restaurant experience. The restaurant seems to have particularly delighted in serving tableside flaming spectacle dishes and drinks. The tropical drink menu featured tropical standards like the Scorpion and Suffering Bastard, served with fanciful garnish. A green buddha mug with a yellow interior, marked Jade East, was a take-home souvenir.
In 1975, the bar had been sold to Bobby Boyd of the Baltimore Colts, who turned it into Hooligan's. A Wells Fargo bank is now on the spot.
