December 10th in the 10 person room at 7:00 pm. It will be ours for the night.

Tentative reservations so far:

Cindy
Vixen
Mike
Midnite
Martin
Rebecca
See-Ming (my Shag collecting co-worker)


Of course, it will be great if other centralites just book other tables, or hang in the bar. For the people above, remember to confirm if you are serious, and post if you can't make it, to give others a chance.

Let's win one for the Viccer.

PS-can anyone with a good printer make some Trader Vic's birthday hats? You know, those cone style ones that kids wear and put on it some good TV graphics or a Picture of the Trader himself.

I'm in, Martiki, and thanks. Any other Sagittarians? We can have a group birthday and party even more.

I'm sure the Trader would approve.

Oh, and Cindy--yes, I'd love to see the gravesite map! I'm one of those folks who likes cemeteries. Too bad they're not open late 8>)

Hm, if I have time I'll leave him a drink on my way to Emeryville...think I can remember where you said he was...

Midnite, reservation for 2, please! Me, and the sig other. Let's carpool from the City! Anyone got a car, we've been to a pool. Hey, we'll pitch in a free Zombie... ...for gas/bridge toll!

Should be a great time, will we need more space? Plus, no way I can miss this event...I know where TV's is located.

Well, I just realized that I'll be in town from Sunday 12/8 thru Wednesday 12/12. So at least count me in for drinks at the bar! I'll be staying in San Jose. How long do you guys think travel time will be? 1 hr? 2 hrs? Where is that carpool meeting again?

Because of traffic you should allow 2 hours in my opinion because you will be going in the Rush hour direction. Go up Highway 80 (the Oakland side of the bay)not 101 which will be even worse(the SF side).--bruce

Here's where we stand:

The table is full with a waiting list. This makes it all the more imperative that if anyone can't make it, that they please post here immediately so we can update the roll call. I would suggest that someone make some other reservations for that night at regular dinner tables. Better yet, try to reserve space for 6 to 8 in the bar. They will reserve the area by the TV (which is always off, don't worry) It's a great corner, and they will serve dinner in the bar area. Plus, by god, you're closer to the bar! Prioritize!

Here's the motley crew so far:

1. TikiVixen - Lisa
2. Cyful Cynner - Cindy
3. TikiHula - Mike
4. Cap. Midnite
5. Cap. Midnite's "Sig Other"
6. Martiki - Martin
7. Mrs. Martiki - Rebecca
8. See-Ming
9. Mr. Smiley - Bruce
10.Mrs. Smiley - Enid

Waiting list:

1. Aquarj - Randy
2. Chihuahua Girl (? ) - Naomi
3. The Polynesian Popster

I have to say, I like the idea of the party hats. Can someone make those? Volunteers?

We could also have signs (maybe little table placards since they probably don't want us taping things to the walls) with some of the Trader's choice expressions. Just a thought.

I also think we should bring a small CD boombox with a burned CD full of exotica to play quietly for some ambiance at dinner.

Any other party ideas?

I was also thinking about renting a limo bus. You can see a picture at Bauer's website:
http://www.bauerslimousine.com/cars.html#

It's the one on the right side next to the Cable Car. Called a Luxury Land Yacht. You can see the giant TV screen in the back. I had one at my wedding and they are a blast. We could play Sven's video on the big screen, (Or an Hawaiian Eyyyyyyyyyye episode). There might be cheaper out there, I'd have to call around, but if we can keep it to four hours, it will come to about $50 per person. It's probably too expensive, I know, but it would be a kick in the ass, and no one has to drive. We could look at smaller limos as well, like town cars. Then everyone could meet and they could pick up and drop us off at a couple of locations.

Just tossing some ideas out there.

Hmm... sounds pretty cool, especially if the PolynesianPoopster is going to be there! Perhaps Frenchy and I will just show up and hang out in the play room.

What, you don't want to get a stretch Humvee or a 22-passenger Excursion?

--cindy, trying not to think about the gas mileage on those

Martin you are the MAN!! This is huge!!

Since I live down here is the south bay, I won't be in on the limo thing, but...

I will make up some Trader Vic's special birthday cards for everyone (or something like that) and I might even bring the old Kava Bowl and we can all drink a communal toast to Mr. Bergeron out of it??
I can't think of a more fitting tribute....

MrSmiley,
Thanks for the tip. I figured it would about a 2 hour commute! Well, I'll do what I can to get over there as quickly as possible.

I made a correction:[quote]Because of traffic you should allow 2 hours in my opinion
because you will be going in the Rush hour direction. Go up Highway 880 (the
Oakland side of the bay)not 101 which will be even worse(the SF
side).[/quote
Take Highway 880 from 101 in San Jose. Highway 880 becomes 80 in Oakland just before it passes Emeryville and Trader Vic's
