September 15:

Tabu Tiki Nights III at Trader Vic's, Chicago!

In celebration of the 70th anniversary of Trader Vic's and the 60th anniversary of the invention of Trader Vic's signature drink - the Mai Tai - Trader Vic's and Tiki Road Trip author James Teitelbaum have teamed up to bring you a monthly celebration featuring exotic drinks, Polynesian performance, sumptuous delicacies and mysterious music!


This month:

Special "Exotica Unplugged" performance from midwest surf-rock legends The Cocktail Preachers.

Hula dancers from Barefoot Hawaiian.

Lei making by Gwen from Barefoot Hawaiian.

Free door prizes courtesy of Surrey Books: new stuff from the artist Shag.

Free door prizes from Mai Tai Magazine: free copies of the 'zine.

Pop art Tiki prints on display from Chicago artist Esqui.

JT's Kon-Tiki Sound System (spinning vintage Exotica and Hawaiian music).

Tiki carver Dave from Lake Tiki.

1/2 price Zombies.

Free pupus (appetisers).

The legendary Singapore Symphony drink: served in a pineapple shell and only available at the monthly Tabu Tiki event.



Tabu Tiki Nights will be held the third Wednesday of every month (the further dates planned are: September 15, October 20, November 17).

The island madness begins at 7:00 and lasts until 11:00.

No cover!

Looking forward to seeing the Ohana again at Trader Vic's! The lovely Mrs. Lake will be joining me this time! I'll have a few new items on hand... I've been busy lately!

See you all Wednesday night!

I work in the Loop and can be at Trader Vic's by about 5:15 to 5:30. Do you guys need help setting up or anything like that? I'd be glad to help out.

Edit - Crap, my wife's new car came in today, and she REALLY wants to pick it up tonight. See you next month.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Trader Vic's and meeting Mrs. Lakesurfer. EsQui's bringing in some paintings and I'll be bringing purses. I can't wait for Zombies!
