So, you never got the other half ?

If not, that's just plain BULLSH*T.

I spoke to Demi about doing an event there. She was nice, but It seems that they have a huge overhead and rent. Hence the $20 hamburger prices.....

Bummer, cos it all points to an unfortunate fate for Sam's.

What a shame.

SAD NEWS: Tiki Tuesdays at Sam's have been cancelled


Mega-Phoo!

The Lion had all four paws knocked out from under when multiple spinal disks failed in September, so missed the past (and it sounds like last) couple months of Tiki Tuesdays.

The good news is he is now free forever of the security special services calls that have been such a bother for the last two decades:

< ))

And... he is now finally free to get the new independent enterprise up and running - but tha's business stuff, not appropriate for here (if you want to know, PM or ask in person).

So: is there a move to encourage Pupu specials at Sam's on a different night?
***Please see Tiki Lion's later post quoting this suggestion***

... on the other paw, shorting the band ain't a practice I favor either...

This one's tough: it's not my business to mediate others' businesses, but Martini Kings get my support without any particular judgement.
Tony and gang, please accept my apologies for my earlier comment's self-centeredness; I hadn't put the pieces of postings together.

Do we have independent confirmation that Demi has left Sam's?

What more is there to this story?

I am tired of people feeling pressured to retract their statements, or tone them down on forums, to be politically correct.

Sams did not pay you what they promised. That's a crime. You guys are one of the top Tiki bands in existence. They should have paid, end of story. And if anyone welches on something like this, it needs to be publically stated.

Earlier, I made some statements regarding Sam's, and was jumped all over for daring to have an opinion. It started with a mild complaint that they were playing hip-hop over the PA system IN A TIKI BAR....and you would not believe the amount of negative posts defending them! And while I was there, I witnessed an extrememly rude bartender who looked more like a gang thug then a service employee. No, people need to be called on bad behavior. I expect no less from myself.

for those of you that expressed interest in the little sam's episode regarding payment for the martini kings i want to let everyone know that the girl who booked us and has since been fired.
after explaining everything to the new manager and showing the history of emails from the ole gal there, the new manager made good on our verbal contract and paid us. hense,the martini kings walk away with a sweet(mai tai) flavor in our mouth when thinking about sams.thank you sam's!

I'm glad to hear that it was a bad manager and not Sam's itself. Anyone up for a Sam's night?

Mahalo,

After about 25 years, I finally made it back to Sam's over the turkey day break. I have to say that it looks really damn nice. We of course bought our mugs($20 each with alcohol included), but didn't eat. The drinks weren't much to jump up and down about, but the mugs and ambiance made it worth the visit. The bartenders were also very accomodating. Watch out for club nights on the weekends though- The idea of hip hop bumping in there is ridiculous(or Ludacris heh heh).
