This has to be some kind of cruel joke.

Do you suppose that "At My Table" place will actually *sell* TV's table ware? Or just taunt us with it?

Worth holding vigil, holding up traffic, and getting kicked out of the parking lot for a set of plates!

See you soon, Kenike!
Looking forward to buying you, who deserve it more than any vacuous Dallas socialite, a TV Mai Tai,
F

Their web site is back in business...although there's no news on it and it still states that the restaurant is opening in 2006. But it's back up and running at least.

I don't know a definite date but I'm guessing end of next week. Next Sunday & Monday is their "mock service."

When will you be in Tulsa? Isn't that about a 4 hour drive to Dallas?

4 hour drive? More like 5.

I drove to the Trader Vic's in Bellevue from Portland last week just for their happy hour. Thats a 3 hour drive.

I once drove a Vespa cross country for a drink at the tiki bar in Brooklyn.

Shoot fire, I have a whole roll of photos from the old TV but they are on film stock.

From todays Dallas Morning News:

Full-tilt tiki

The tiki gods are demanding just a few more days of construction and a little more paperwork before the old-new Trader Vic's opens at the Hotel Palomar on Mockingbird. Right now the owners are looking to open to the public on Feb. 27.

But every day, things are looking more tiki-fied.

Last week, the backlit Trader Vic's sign, in the faux Polynesian Trader Vic's font, went up on the side of Hotel Palomar above the recently installed big tiki statue.

Eve Bergeron, granddaughter of Victor "Trader Vic" Bergeron, has been in Dallas helping to train the staff.

Grandfather Victor opened his first restaurant in 1932 across the street from his parent's Oakland, Calif., grocery store. He named it Hinky Dink's. And even after he changed the name to Trader Vic's, old-timers like San Francisco Chronicle columnist Herb Caen referred to themselves proudly as the "loyal sons of Hinky Dink."
