The grand opening of Tiki Terrace is slated for Tuesday, November 8.

For that week, from the 8th through Saturday the 12th, there will be two 'seatings' per night, at 6PM and 9PM (subject to change, of course - watch this space).

During these seatings, there will be free food, entertainment from Barefoot Hawaiian (on all days), and more surprises.

The Official Tiki Central gathering is on Thursday, November 10, at 9 PM.

Scott wants to get an idea of how many people to expect, so if you think you're going to show up, post here!

Address is 1 S. Wolf Rd., in Prospect Heights.

From downtown, take I-90 to I-294 north to Willow rd.
Take Willow west to Wolf, head south on Wolf, and you can't miss the place on your left. Cross the Metra tracks and you just missed it.

Thanks for keeping up to date with this thread. I will keep track of the RSVP's for Thursday the 10th.

I will try to post some pics in the next few days. I'll post before and after pics.

Regarding our booking of Jake, here is some more info:
NA HOKU HANO HANO AWARD WINNER (Hawaii’s Grammy Awards)

JAKE SHIMABUKURO

TO APPEAR AT TIKI TERRACE

NOVEMBER 19, 2005!

LIMITED SEATING!!

Jake, Hawaii’s 28 year old star, is known as “The Greatest Ukulele Player In The World”

Jake will also be appearing on The Conan O’Brien Show on December 13, 2005.

This popular musician has also performed with and/or opened for Jimmy Buffett, Bobby McFerrin, John Hiatt, Bella Fleck and more.

Ticket info and other information will go out to the Tiki Terrace VIP list Soon!!!!!So Wiki Wiki.

Can I ask you all to give me your input on Jake. I'm not asking for committments to attend. It is a lot of $$$ for a 60 capacity venue to book a guy like Jake, so I am honestly a bit nervous about this. We are looking at approx $55.00 ticket cost which will include approx 1.5 hour performance and free pu pu's. Beverages/cocktails will be sold at normal cost.

Thanks everyone for your offers to help. But I want this to be a suprise for you all. I am particularly excited to host the TCer's and get your thoughts on the place since you all have seen so many tiki bars. But like James was saying, it is a small place and my 2 brothers, father and I did the entire build out and decor (except 8 carvings from Oceanic arts)... so dont expect the Mai Kai. But we are still proud of it and cant wait to be a good host for you all!!!

The best way that you can help The Tiki Terrace is honestly the word of mouth promo. We are a small business and we expect hard times. Fortunately, we have a great following because of our 20 plus year old sister company, the Barefoot Hawaiian,,, but we still can use your help in this regard.

Will post pics soon. And the newsletter with invite to the Grand Opening will go out soon.

Thanks everyone! And special mahalo to James and Derwin. Aloha!

I'd like to come on the 10th, but I'd have to get the 6 PM seating. My kids love the tiki stuff too, so I wouldn't want to leave them out, but they wouldn't make it much past 9:30.

Tiki Flange!

Just did this tonight as I was interviewed by a local newspaper here in Milwaukee for an upcoming profile on my work. The subject of new tiki establishments came up and I mentioned Tiki Terrace and it's location. Another Great Lakes region publication is seeking an interview with me and I'll mention Tiki Terrace... I wish you all the best and a long, long run!

Emily and I would be interested, but we would like a few more details on the 10th. Price, etc. Sorry if it was already mentioned.
