That probably won't be too difficult - they didn't even know their own restaurant was being remodeled.

Thanks Bruce- good point. Please do, everyone.

Have a great time tonight, everyone- wish I could be there, but I've got to take it easy on the pocketbook.

WOW! What a GREAT couple of nights with a super-welcoming crowd in SF!!!
Thanks SO much to TikiVixen to arranging all this - it was great to get to spend time with the SF Tiki crowd & chat with Mrsmiley, Hanford, Midnite, Tikiwinebear, Humuhumu, MaiTai, and everyone else that was so much fun. & of course, Pepe le Tiki in from the great white north, which we look forward to visiting and checking out your cool shop.
A great weekend all-around - Thanks to all for the fabulous hospitality

What a huge turnout!!! It was great meeting all of you!

Thanks, Vixen for working out the plans!

PS Pepe, I later noticed that the price tag on the Vic's ashtrays that you bought from the Drugstore Vintage in SF said "Trader Joe's ashtrays"! MMM, Mai-Tai's and the Fearless Flyer!


Ps-Trader Joe's is a mostly west-coast cool, grocery store chain.

West-coast cool? They play Dave Brubeck?

They have them in NJ and Philly now...it makes the visits back to the family slightly more bearable... except they don't sell wine, which would make it much more bearable...

We just returned today and wanted to say THANKYOU for making our trip the best!! Two nights of TC Ohana, great Tiki venues and fabulous drinks...we miss you already!!! Thanks for organizing us Tikivixen, it couldn't have been better. I've got some great photos and will try and get them up tomorrow.
Here's a photo of our TV loot including the ashtrays Mrsmiley mentioned (very happy with my purchase..and great store!) As you can see, cocktails at our place have reached a new level. TV may have left Vancouver but we've brought some of it back!


I wish we could join you guys at the weekly Trader Vic's gathering!!!

OK here's some photos (a little late and fuzzy!) from the Feb. 4th gathering at The Conga Lounge & TV Emeryville.

mrsmiley, Humuhumu & Hanford at the Conga Lounge (great Mai Tais, by the way!)


The gang at Trader Vics Emeryville!


Alan, myself, Conga Mike & Hanford at TV Emeryville.


Humuhumu telling us about Hukilau 2004 and the Hurricane.


Stacey and Cro67 with a very loveable Menehune.


Just when we were about to bow down in homage to the spirit of Vic himself.....


Toto pulls the curtain and reveals the truth! (just mrsmiley messing with our intoxicated minds)


Hmmm....maybe I'll cancel my return ticket and drive home.


Thanks again to the Bay area TC folks for showing us a such great time. We're seriously considering another trip for the Forbidden Island opening...

There are more photos to view here:

So I am finally getting our pictures up, too, from this fabulous weekend!
Thanks, again, to the SF crowd for making us feel so welcome!!

Alan & Pepe le Tiki at Trader Vic's San Francisco


Hanford giving the insiders tour to croe67, Pepe le Tiki, & Alan at TV Emmeryville


Pepe le Tiki with the same adoreable little Meneheune Man


Watch out! It's got mrsmiley's arm!!!


When Pepe le Tiki turned into the mysterious Tiki-knapper - but, alas, only for a second!


Much lively conversation at TV San Fran with Humu & TikiVixen


& Lars at the end of a long, fun evening!!


& a lovely band of TCers at play....


Wish I had these handles on my bathroom doors!


& I'm so glad I wasn't the only one to take a picture of the TVs catering truck - us tourists, the strangest things are picture worthy!

Such a FUN weekend!!!
