I REALLY hope TV opens here-but the current flavor of Vegas can be so fleeting, I won't believe it until I see it!

PS-I haven't searched recently for this-but where is the new info on Vegas' new Don The Beachcomber?!?!?

Trader Vic's web site now says the that Vegas location won't open till June '07 -- which sucks because I had been planning to go to Vegas in Jan or Feb and wanted to go there.

there was a cheesy tiki bar in the golden gate casino on fremont street. last casino on the left, just before the plaza hotel/casino(which incidentally makes good tropical drinks!!) i haven't been in a few years so who knows what's left of it. if not the golden gate then one of those casinos in that area had it....if i was there i could point directly to it but a hazy memory keeps me from being able to tell you with exactness which casino it was.



Not there.

I usually make it to LV once a year, plue it's a nice drive from the Bay Area. I typically stay at the Flamingo....I too am amazed by the tropical backyard and pool areas. Now that I have a timeshare, I can stay at a nice little condo resort over by Hooters. I love to go shopping....especially at the Aladdin (cause I can't afford Caesers). If TV is not going to open till the summer...I will try to put my visit off until after the opening.....keep us posted. Thanks all for the great pictures.

Thanks to Inky and Smiley for coming out to the Aruba and staying as long as ya did!


Can't believe the bands waited so long, and I can't believe how freakin' cold it was! it had snowed friday during the day! arrrrrgh.
I did hit Fremont Street, and when ya got under that roof, it turned into a crazy arctic wind tunnel! ayeeeeeeee
Did some ABC store shoppin, and went into Micky Finz looked at the drink menu and walked back out. Giant room with sports on and sorority girls at the bar and frat boys working the door.
Just couldn't bear to stay even to have a drink. foo. Did take a pic with the tiki outside...

The spa at Excalibur is pretty nice! I'd go again.
Sunday I hung out at one of the bars at the Tropicana and watched the Seahawks get beat by Chicago in overtime. Thank goodness for all the free and 2 fer 1 coupons I had for coctails. That many margaritas and it doesn't matter who wins or loses.

Last night, Inky and I had dinner with the man who tore down the Sands and the man who is building the Las Vegas Trader Vics while Kevin Spacey sang Boby Darin songs. And , no, we didn't talk to any of them.

Nobhill, a restaurant in the MGM Grand, is considered by many to have the best bar in town - and check out the item on their drink menu: Hinky Dink's Mai Tai (Appleton Rum, Mt. Gay Eclipse Rum, Orange Curacao, Fresh Lime Juice, Orgeat & Rock Candy Syrups - $10)... http://www.michaelmina.net/nobhill/menus_cocktails.html... Not a perfect recipe, I know, but still; props for the Hinky Dinks reference... I'm hoping to check it out this week, because a solitary item with Hinky Dinks in the title is probably the best tiki drinking Vegas has to offer until TV opens...

We're looking for a Vegas place to celebrate our recent wedding with friends who will be at Viva Las Vegas over Easter but who couldn't make it to England for our wedding luau at the turn of the year http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=22745&forum=15&7

We're not throwing a party but it'll be a meeting up place for a celebration drink or two.

Recommendations anyone?


Thank you!
Liz & Chris

If you are looking for a great tiki place in Vegas try Tahiti Joe's. Its on the strip at the Tahiti Village. I was there and it was amazing the food and drinks were unbelievable and it was all reasonable with prices. This place is the closest I have found to sitting on the beach.
