This card was given to me by my fabulous sister. It is postally unused.¬†Reservatron was released in 1969. Here’s a great history on the system.

Kirsten went and snapped a modern photo for me:

You can see it was massively built on, but the original structure is still there. As you can see, it’s now a DoubleTree. No mention of the Kon-Tiki. This article speaks of a tropical time gone by in Portland. If you’re out there and visit The Alibi, please send me a postcard (or a photo from your phone).
