Stopped by to see Ben last Thursday. Didn't stick my head inside, I want to see the finished product. It was nice to finally meet ya, Ben! I'll be back to visit Frankie's next year, but I don't think I can wait that long to add some of those mugs to my collection. Keep us updated on the construction & mug availability, please.
Mahalo,
Rick

And here is an inside shot for those who can wait to see this Discotheque!

Is there going to be a Grand Opening party? If so, DETAILS PLEASE! I think some of us Tiki Magazine folks would like to cover this illustrious affair!


The planned opening is Thursday, Dec. 4. I know some TC folks are working on their travel arrangements already.

Tuna Tiki showed me some pictures...

We will not be able to call Crazy Al, "crazy" any more; his latest work is
INSANE
Tuna TiKi didn't want any pictures to get "leaked" so he tore them up after showing me. But I was able to get a portion of Al's Tiki. I put my foot over a scrap and slid it under a table, then spilled my drink on purpose, making a big deal that "I" would clean it up, then slid the scrap into my pocket, got it home, scanned it and here it is! (Hey all fair in Love of TiKi Bars, eh?)

Isn't that INSANE?

From what I saw, this is beyond anyone's imagination. A TiKi Bar beyond all TiKi Bars. Hey Sven may even like it!

Ok Banana man, no pics for you one week.

Hey guys, this place is incredible. It was truly a honor to be able to add a small part to it. Rumshaker, Chris and Moss have put together a team of world class craftsmen to build a tiki room the likes of which have never been seen before. Beside being like the coolest guy in the world, Bamboo Ben has really out done himself on this place. I know Chris has busted his ass to make the place come together and done a great job. Our beloved Rumshaker, you remember her from Tiki Oasis wink wink, has been hard at work coming up new original drinks for all to enjoy. She told me she pick out all the shirts the staff will be wearing yesterday. Vintage hawaiian, each one diffrent. She has been running around taking care of alot of the little details that need attending to while hold down a full time job. I don't know how she does it all. And of course none of this would be possible without Moss the great one. See ya all on the 4th.

I know Aquarj and Conga Mike have stayed at the Stratosphere-maybe they can give a review.


But not together!

Stayed at the Stratosphere on a business trip. My company goes first class all the way, so the $40 rooms were ideal for our elite travel needs. The rooms are forgettable - at least for me they were, because I have forgotten any details about mine. Just a regular hotel, but that might be a good thing in contrast to hotel rooms that are memorable in the not so good way. My co-worker said the Internet was finicky for her. And I'm quite certain there was no mint on the pillow (at least it didn't look like a mint to me).

Looking forward to seeing Frankie's sometime on a future Vegas stop for work or play. Sounds like the most! The Double Down has a good pedigree tastewise, so it's neat to hear it's the same owner.

-Randy
