I stopped by there this afternoon, the tiki was still out front, the escalators were shut off, the tikis outside of the bar were still there, and it looked like (through the crack in the locked door) the bar was still like it used to be, for now.

I guess it is good news under the circumstances - that we have confirmation that Richter and TV's upper management were on hand to make sure all the stuff is being saved....

You mean Miller Lite in a football-shaped mug. Served by someone who says "awesome" and "like", like, a lot.

This news just came off the wire from Otto Von Stroheim:

Quote:
Trader Vics is reopening in Chicago and they are announcing it live on TV (that’s television) on Feb 7

They are looking for a fire dancer in Chicago to be part of the festivities
Interested parties should email Otto von Stroheim immediately
otto@tikinews.com

The new restaurant will inherit most of the décor from the original Chicago location
