Sounds like fun! You can count two of us in for Fri. & Sat.. We might be a little late getting to the Tonga Room on Friday (around 6-6:30).
Thanks for organizing us Tikivixen!

Sounds like great fun! Looks like we'll be in town, so count us in, as well. We were at Emeryville Trader Vic's last Saturday night and it was packed -- about four bodies deep at the bar, getting a table at the bar or in the restaurant was a 1+ hour wait. Service at the bar was very quick, considering, but with our party of four we were squeezed in very tightly. I don't know if that's typical for a Saturday night. Perhaps we should get reservations?

I'm a paranoid type and I LOVE getting reservations! I was wondering what sort of a head count we should be anticipating for both Fri. and Sat. Vic's, but I'd be happy to make optimistic estimates and give both places a call tonight or tomorrow...

Can't wait!

Count 2 heads here for Trader Vic's Emeryville on Saturday night! We will meet up at the Conga Lounge first and head over with the rest of the crowd.

See you Saturday!

You better call them ASAP. I stopped in for a quick drink last night and Roberto the bartender said they have been packed on Fridays and Saturdays lately. They were really busy last night as well. He said on weekend nights they use the bar seating for dinner guests, so if people want to just stop in for drinks they're often out of luck.

I won't be able to make this Saturday's gathering because I have other plans, but I will be able to attend the bi-weekly Thursday gathering (see
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=18235&forum=4&2).

I wish the moderators would change this confusing thread's title - it started out as a discussion on a weekly gathering but has become something else.

I agree- and I'm a moderator! I frankly don't get it anymore, so I don't know what to do!

This thread was mostly a discussion about planning weekly alternating visits to Trader Vic's . Lots of helpful input was given and it seems most are happy with the "Even" Emeryville Thursdays concept. I propose this thread name changed to SF Tiki Visit 2/2-2/4 in honor of our out of town visiters Croe67 and Pepe Le TIki. And maybe lock it after this weekend.

Former SF Vics manager and mixologist extroadinaire, Jim Shumake, will be there shaking things up. Jim begins his tour of duty tonight for a month or two, until he sails off to the Forbidden Island in April.
Come on by the Conga for a kick-ass Mai Tai and say hi to Jim, Mike and Mano

Mr. Smiley's paying attention!

Oof, okay, the thread did kinda morph...but in a good-natured way...mucho mahalos to our equally good-natured moderators!

I've made a reservation for SF Vic's Friday; they felt they could accommodate a large party more easily at 8:00 pm, and since Pepe's party was running late anyway, I went ahead and booked in the bar area for 8:00 pm. Those who get there earlier will of course be happily diving on any free bar seats and, I'm sure, leaving Lars lovely tippage.

We're finalizing Saturday at Emeryville Vic's tomorrow with maitre d' Claudette. Sounds like everything will be okay.

(I can't wait to sample Jim's libations at the Conga Lounge on Saturday! What a treat: a glimpse of things to come at Forbidden Island! YUM.)

One last note: anyone who actually wants to go and do a separate sit-down dinner at either Vic's should phone for their own personal reservation! We're just reserving group tables in the bar. Vic's bar food IS terrific. The hamburgers rock .

FYI:

Vic's Emeryville: 510-653-3400
Vic's SF: 415-775-6300

Both nights sound great! We're really looking forward to meeting everyone!!! I know they're busy nights but I'm sure that won't hinder the fun especially if Mai Tais are involved. See ya tonight!
