I saw that Hotel Palomar is having a ribbon cutting ceremony today so I went to www.hotelpalomar-dallas.com. If you go to the left hand menu & click on "Dining", TV is listed with a description & dining hours which makes it appear as though it is open, but obviously it's not. I think we're going to stop by the hotel this weekend to check it out...I'll follow up with a report.

I just called the hotel to check TV's status since I'll be changing planes in Dallas next week and thought I might arrange a long enough layover. Alas, the desk clerk at the Palomar says that TV's won't be open til the "end of the year, sometime."

If that is the set date, is that when they plan on the "big party"? If so I think we should shoot for that.

Man I'm ready for this to happen, We need to think of a way to identify each other when we are there. Besides "i'll be wearing a hawaiian shirt" LOL.

That is expected for an establishment, but also promising to the fact our dreams are getting closer to reality. I used to work for Miller there in Dallas and worked with TABC (jerks), and I believe after the permit permission is posted it will be 30-60 days. Depends on if anyone causes a fuss. Most of the times it's not that long (60 days), but being a prior establishment that served alcohol I doubt anyone will cause a stink. Lets all pray that TV doesn't turn out to be like the Tiki Bob's in the west end.

The Dallas Morning News reported today that the Dallas TV opening has been pushed backed to mid-February due to construction noise bothering the Hotel Palomar business office (directly above.)It also mentions that they acquired the chandelier from the recently closed Chicago Trader Vic's.

That number is for the TX Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC).

Here's the article from todays paper. Thanks Hazmania for the heads up.

February opening for Trader V's

The reopening of the once-old, now-new Trader Vic's at the Hotel Palomar has been pushed back to mid-February because of a few delays. Apparently, Palomar's conference facilities, directly above Trader Vic's, have been very busy.

"Noise prohibition has stopped construction often," says Palomar and Trader Vic's co-owner Jeff Berry. "That's a great thing for the hotel, but it has delayed our opening."

Among decorative items the Dallas restaurant has scored is a chandelier that once hung in the original Trader Vic's in California's Bay Area. The chandelier had been relocated to the Chicago Trader Vic's. "That location had to shut down due to a high-rise being constructed there," Jeff says, "and the chandelier was put in storage."

Hi All! =D

I just called Hotel Palomar and was told the opening date will be Feb 11th (Sunday night). I'm sure that's set in stone! wink, wink, LOL!

Anyways, I can't wait. Who's gonna be there for the grand opening? I'm there! =D Would love to meet up with everyone, even if it's at another date. Well, I should say, even if it's another time besides the grand opening, whevener that will be. (rolls eyes laughing).

I was hoping we could all get together a few weeks after it opens. That way they hussle and bussle has kinda died down. Of course any ohana in Dallas and surrounding areas are free to go on recon

I'm trying to get people on TC who live in Texas interested in showing. Look below and pass it along.

Thanks for that info...let's hope it IS set in stone this time. I'm sure I'll be there if the 11th is official.

I'm thinking our first TX gathering should probably be sometime in the spring. Hopefully they'll be open by then

Unkle John,
I followed your link and registered on the Texas Tiki forum. I'll try to keep watching here and there for updates and hope to be available for any get-togethers at Trader Vic's.

Hey it's good to see you over there. I hope more Texas tikiphiles join up there who frequent this site or any others. In no way am I trying to compete with TC. I just want to gather as much info on tiki sites in Texas to share the info to Texas tiki collectors who have not stumbled across TC, and to promote the ohana feel.

Well, then, they've got a two-week cushion. The wife and I are planning to trip up to Dallas the weekend of the 25th, and dinner/drinks at Trader Vic's is definitely going to be the highlight. If it isn't open, then we're just going to whip up a batch of homemade Mai Tais, drive on down to Mockingbird Lane and stage a drunken sit-in out in front of the Trader's. I've been waiting for that damned place to open since August.
