I went to the Yardhouse on a Laker game night and the joint was packed. If Trader Vics can absorb even a portion of that crowd, it could do very well.

If the BH reopens, we could have 3 locations in about 10 miles.

I was informed that Trader Vic's will be open for Happy Hour and dinner hours for the first 30 days. No lunch hours yet.

Bar top is being finished tommorow, tapa and Tiki are up, canoes being installed. Getting close.
Here is a picture of Nokia Plaza outside of Trader Vic's. Trader John mentioned an outdoor event with music and a Polynesian review out here sometime.




Son of Kelbo this ones for you.

Good My Space page, lots of information, music and clips:

Mahalo Timo! Staying cautiously optimistic, and caulking the canoe. We'll be catching an early wave to see if the mojo is there.

UPDATE

We have installed over 3000sgft of Tapa Cloth, several Tikis, two outriggers, a Chinese oven and much more.


But Due to equipment delays and inspections delays we are moving our opening date to the week of April 20Th.

Looks like we will have to wait until next year for a Kings-Trader Vics combo. While I used to play and coach basketball, I'm not much for watching it. Looking forward to the food and drinks. Validated parking?

I took the 15th off to be there, bummer that the opening is delayed. No worries, I'll just take another day off for the "Official-Official Grand Opening"!

I took the 15th off too CheekyGirl! I see you are a Valley girl like me! Maybe we should meet up at the Tonga Room and mourn the delay. Oh well. Yes I guess we will have to adjust our calendars. I was so hoping it would be BEFORE I have surgery on the 22nd. However I'm sure there will be a perfect tropical concoction that will enhance the effect of my pain medication! At least there is still the Grand Opening of DTB on the 18th!
