Are we sure it is finally closing, heard that when asked recently, a bouncer replied, ya, im buying it tommorow." Someone is supposedly always about to buy it. I want to make sure and go down there if this is actually gonna happen.

Even if we can't make it for the gathering, Tiki Bird & I are past due for a visit.

Either of those dates would probably work for us, we'll try to keep it open. I'm sad to hear WooHoo's confirmation of the news so far -- I'll keep hoping for the best. Support your local tiki!

Perfect! The day after my thesis defense! Of course, if it's the last time I go to the Royal Hawaiian, I'll be royally bummed (pun intended).

Yep, I heard they entered a 90-day escrow on 12-17-05, so we may be looking at a potential closing in mid March. The purchasers are buying the Hula Hut, the jewelry store next to the parking lot, and the parking lot for a real estate investment. They don't want to operate a restaurant, although I've heard they would entertain an offer to continue it. This probably isn't feasible, because a change of ownership will likely require the restaurant to be brought up to code..... A friend of a friend has put in an offer hoping the building inspection report will discourage the potential buyers. So far, it's not looking very promising.

The Royal Hawaiian is great! All of you local TCers better get your butts in there and pay it the respect it deserves! See ya there.

Mean Gene has spoken!

It looks like roughly half the votes are for Feb. 11th and half for the 18th.

There might have to be two events!

If you go in there right when they open during the week and tell the early local boys at the bar that Mean Gene sent ya, watch what happens....

I will be making as many appointments in OC as possible during the next couple months.

Does anyone know if the Royal Hawaiian is planning a closing event? That may solve our problem.

If not, we'll have to have an appropriate closing ceremony. Therefore, the more time for planning... the better.

I was there on 12/30 during my New Years pilgramage and was told by the lady in charge that while they were indeed being sold the new owners would be keeping the Royal Hawaiian open as a Polynesian place.
