Looks like there's already another thread for this event (thanks for getting that going, fellas!), but here's the 'official' word.

See this thread:

TABU TIKI NIGHTS VII at Trader Vic's, CHICAGO

Join us for a night of Tiki worship in the frozen island of Chicago!

Live entertainment by the Old Town School of Folk Music's Ukulele All-Stars.

Music by JT's Kon-Tiki Sound System (spinning vintage Exotica and Hawaiian music). James just bought some new vinyl, so listen for some new old tunes!

Dave from Lake Tiki will be raffling off one of his unique, hand carved Tikis!

Esqui and Lissette return with new Tiki prints!

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.

(sorry, no Barefoot Hawaiian show this month.)

It's never too late for Tiki carvers, artisans, and entertainers to arrange to bring their work for display (contact James): tikibars@yahoo.com
All artists are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Updated live entertainment schedules and further information can be found on the venerable Tiki Bar Review Pages site

Looking forward to a new season of "Tabu Tiki Nights" at Trader Vic's! And to get the ball rolling on the right track this great "Big Mouth" Lake Tiki is up for raffle. Tickets are $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00.





Keep in mind you have to take this guy home from Trader Vic's... he stands in at 3 foot 4 inches and weighs around 40 lbs.

Thanks again for your support and I thank you in advance!

I will also have the other Lake Tiki goodies available at my table, Tiki Bar signs and hand carved tikis with the flavor of the South Seas!

See you there!

Save me at least a dozen of those tickets! I'm so pumped about this wednesday. Not only do I get to get away from the kids for a while, but I get to do it at Trader Vic's on a weeknight!

Can't wait to see the new Tikit, Dave.

I think that after six weeks of freezing, a lot of people are itching for some paradise.

Tomorrow...

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.

Wow, are they nuts? Is this some kind of scheme to undermine and boot Trader Vic's out? Or is it really the case that a normal (empty) businessmen night at Trader Vic's brings in more dough..? Did they have a noise problem? What the...

That sucks James and A.J., after all the work you put into these events.

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!

BigBro, there's still plenty to be upset about: the Hilton have turned their backs on the event. AJ and I are splitting the costs out of out own coffers this month (no chance of reimbursement), and we'll have to find a liquor company sponsor if we want to keep things going.

Hope everyone who is anywhere near Chicago can make the drive tonight - this is going to be a real monster of a Tiki-fest.
