I just moved back to Texas from Boston (where the Tiki lifestyle still has a pulse, albeit a weak and gradually fading one), and heard this wonderful rumor about the Dallas Trader Vic's reopening from a clerk at Lula B's. What great news! If only they'd open one in Austin...

Hey everyone, I e-mailed Trader Vic's in Dallas to get an opening date. I was told they plan to open October 1, 2006. Just a few days before Hukilau.

Thought you all would want to know!

Awesome news! Mahalo for keeping ar ear out. Can you find out if that is their opening or their "garnd opening" (aka with all the hoopla)? I would love to get back to Big D for that but I am doing Hukilau and might have trouble squeezing the extra weekend in.

When the opening date gets closer we should start planning a TC get-together for later October or November. I'll probably be there for the grand opening on the 1st but I'm sure they won't want us to plan something big on opening night. Lots of TC'ers will be coming from out of town so we should start thinking about when to plan it.

The closest thing Austin has to a genuine tiki joint is the Hula Hut, and that's more of a Tex-Mex-meets-retro-Hawaii-meets-Jimmy-Buffett-inspired-lake-culture type place. As much as I enjoy the Hula Hut, it won't do much to scratch the tiki itch.

Drove by the location today. I'm not sure what is being built, but there's another part of the Palomar under construction directly in front of TV so you can't see it from the street. Maybe a lobby or something with more condos? It looks like you'll have to walk through this building to get back where the restaurant is.

I've been a lurker here for a while, but with TV getting ready to open, I lurk no more! Looking forward to my first Dallas Mai Tai (hey, it is Trader Vic's) and hope to spot some TC'ers at some gathering.

Welcome Grand Kahu! Hopefully more of the Dallas area lurkers will make themselves known soon.
