I just bought tickets yesterday morning to see Aerosmith at the United Center that night - if things go late at Trader Vic's, maybe we'll catch you

I live in the burbs but have never been to TV's so if this deal is on for sure, then this will be my reason to go.

That's crummy news... When I lived in Milwaukee we made the trip down a few times a year to do our homemade tikibar crawl, and TV was always on the list, of course.

Quince_at_Danny's and I will talk it over with our wahine and see if we can swing it. Tentative aye for now, will confirm soon.

Looking forward to seeing you guys there! My ticket seems to be good. The glitch on Flyi.com was written up in the Washington Post and they say they are going to honor the tickets that were sold during the glitch.

There are signs up at Trader Vic's saying that they are closing after New Year's Eve. So it is now official and no longer speculation.

I will be in Barcelona that night, so I won't be there for the final night.

I know that The Chef is having a shindig too, but I hope some of you will show up up on the 31st to say farewell to this Chicago Tiki landmark.

Less than five weeks from now, the last true Tiki bar within the city limits will be gone!

So...
As for the 10th... do we have a time set to meet?

Tiki Terrace is having show that night - I wonder if there's a way to fit both in?

I wonder if we can talk Scott into starting his show later that night so we can hit Trader Vic's for a few hours and then finish up at the Terrace?

Any ideas?

This is very sad. I tried to go there last April before the Green Bay Fest but it was closed on Sunday. Of course, I didn't know then its days were numbered.

I'll always have fond memories of our night there on the first day of Exotica in '03.

This is really, really bad news.

Any of you old timers remember this thread from before Exotica?

I am thinking 6-6:30, unless you guys have other ideas. Do you think we need reservations?

I would really love to check out the Tiki Terrace, but I will be without car, so it depends on how far away it is.

So for December 10th we have: James, BK, Hala, Exotica, Lake and Me (Tiki Goon). I am bringing a friend, is anyone else going? It would be good to get a rough count so we can make reservations.

I made my first and last trip to TV during the Exotica this summer. It probably the only good tiki bar that I have ever been too. Well, I have a nice picture of me sitting at the bar.
