Luau or Tropical Freeze

Tropical Freeze was long gone before White Station Tower was built, also the wall of the Tropical Freeze was on the south side of the property against the railroad tracks, so this view would suggest a southeast background, perhaps the office building on Poplar just west of Holmes. I believe it was Luau based on the clam shell fountain, the "Palm" tree in the background and the flower themed drink tumbler the girl is holding. My wife took one look at the photo without any background info and immediately said Luau.
