It'll be great to see you again, CongaTiki! My cats creep around like they are in a jungle when I put on your cd. Lissette says hello.

Rumor has it that the management are cutting back a bit on the comp pupus. They'll probably be gone by 8:00, in fact.



Figured that was a matter of time... no worries... not like there isn't a ton of great restaurants in Chicago to grab a bite on the way...

IMPORTANT!

Read this!

I regret to inform you all that February 16 (tomorrow) MAY be the LAST Tabu Tiki Nights.

This is not my descision, nor is it the descision of Trader Vic's.

As you all know, AJ, the General Manager of Trader Vic's, was the one who came to me with the idea to do this event, and he is completely on our team when it comes to doing Tiki events. He loves Tabu Tiki Nights - they're his favorite part of the job, in fact (he told me so!).

The cancellation order came from the new Food and Beverage Director of the Palmer House Hilton, who did not think that the profit margin from the past events made it worth doing.

to finally catching the party...thanks for
the heads up Tikibars...I was able to
cancel my reservation at the Palmer (just
in time)...it's such a long cruise that I'm
just gonna wait 'n' see if they do another
"night" in the future...although it sounds
pretty shakey. Hello to EsQuie...

STOP THE PRESSES!

I just got off of the phone with AJ, and he and I are going to pay for tomorrow night's event out of our own pockets.

The event for tomorrow is ON.

We have formulated a plan to save the event long-term, but nothing is finalized. Come on out tomorrow night!
