So I take it one should say this phrase with the requisite hand motion and roll of the eyes?

I was hoping that it was some delightful German idiom meaning something constructed by hand...

I drove by today. Construction was underway, the doors were open and I was able to see that it is very much an EARLY work in progress.

Good.
Hopefully it will open before Trader Vics Lounge closes, so BH can maintain their Tiki mana.

unless you heard something while at the lounge recently.

Don't count on it...I heard thru the grapevine there will be no tiki at the Luau.
Now, the Malibu Beachcomber on the otherhand....

How can one have a Luau without Tiki. Have the owners no sense of history?

What is up with the Malibu Beachcomber - is it the vacation bungalow rental?

Update,
Went by there today to check out the progress. Outside has not changed at all from the pictures posted previously, except the awnings are now covered in white (looks like some sort of masking for painting or something). Lots of construction activity going on inside visible through open doors, but still no visible Tiki or Luau styling cues visible. Interior buildout is still in very early stages. Unable to tell what this thing is going to look like.

Good to hear of the progress, even if currently hidden.

The latest Rumble from the Jungle that I've heard is September/October. We'll have to wait and see.

Went to a Tasting last night.

The Mai Tai is Spot On!

The food we sampled was Awesome too!

Just remember...

"They are not trying to be the old Luau."

and....

"Jeff Berry consulted with them early on."

Stay tuned.....
