This was sort of already mentioned in the thread about Bellevue, Washington but I think it's worthy of it's own topic for the TC'ers in TX. This is BIG.

Hey Juno, let me know the date of the grand opening and we can meet there. I have already told my wife and she can't wait to go shopping.

Will do. One year should be enough time to plan a TX TCer's meet.

I am in. Hey do we know how many Texas TC'ers there are? I think the Canadians just did a head count. We should get everyone to fess-up. Neighboring states are welcome too.

I'm down in Houston, from which we just lost Kilikopela and his wahine to Korea for 2 years

But we also have RobotParts.

And Almost Human (whom I have yet to see!)

Sooo looking forward to a TV's being back in Texas!!

This thread would be a good start:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=6111&forum=4&start=0

...from when we tried to get a TX TCer's get-together some time ago. Unfortunately, some of these folks have been MIA for a while. There was one person called Suelo from Dallas who got into the old Trader Vics and posted a bunch of pics. They're on TC somewhere.

Good news guys.. I put the bug in their ear and they are interested in a yearly party! True it's going to be awhile, but that gives us time to get a really good proposal to them. I sent them a link to Hukilou and told them how successful it was.

BTW to the creators of Hukilou..thank you!

Great job unkle john!!!
I'm in for any get together at Trader Vics.I've been babbling to my wife since it was posted here like a freak!
I agree with the "headcount" idea. If we can't meet at a tiki-ish bar, maybe a gathering at a lake. Or better yet everyone go tubin down the guadelupe river.

Waahooo!!!

Being saddened by the lack of authenticity at Tiki Tiki (bar) here in Houston I look forward to many roadtrips to Dallas. I know I'll see Formikahini there probably more than I see her here in our hometown of Houston!!! Hope to also meet more Texan Tikiphiles before Vic's opens in '06 as I'm hoping to have a big luau this year if I can ever finish my home tiki bar.

RobotParts aka Don D'Ablo

Hey you guys are welcome. I feel bad b/c I could never attend any of the gatherings that Juno put together, so I felt I should put the bug in their ear and hopefully redeam myself as an interested Tx Tikiphile.

That's ok, Unkle, no-one else could attend them either. But hey, if anyone in the DFW area wants to do a get together before next June when TV opens I'm definitely in. I'm sure Unkle John will make the trip from Lubbock.

Great! A TV in Dallas! For the other TX resident tiki-philes, I've recently joined your ranks, and reside in beautiful San Antonio. This is great news, and will be a great excuse for a drive up to Big-D!
