Scott

Tiki Terrace is a good choice for Friday because you'll get to see the Islanders, but also because you DONT want to go to Hala Kahiki on a weekend, unless you want to wait an hour to get in.

As always, if you want to go to the Chef Shangri-La dinner / Hala Kahiki drinks run on Tues, Weds, or Thurs, I'm up for it. These two dstinations make a good back-to-back Tiki Tour in the 'burbs.

Send me a PM, and I'll give you my phone#.

Make sure you get Tipsy, C10, and Exotica 59 in the posse too.

Hints for the Art Institute: free on Tuesday, open late on Thursday.
It is a must-see if you're at all interested in art.

The Museum of Contemporary Art sucks ass.

Thanks for the info! I'm open to meeting at Hala Kahiki on any of those days (Tues, Wed, or Thurs)

I just sent you a PM.

I'm flying out of the Twin Cities tomorrow (Friday) in the early evening. After that, I'll have limited ability to connect to the Internet.

Since I can meet at the Hala Kahiki on any of those days (Tues, Wed, or Thurs) and because I am running out of time to coordinate this, I'm suggesting Thursday night. If that does not work for all involved, just let me know what day was picked. Like I said, I'm open.

I've sent my mobile phone number to a bunch of people, so someone should be able to contact me. Also, I have Tipsy's number.

Scott.

I'd suggest making reservations, they fill up on weekends at TT, too.

Sorry for the utra-last minute update, but Scott and Kat are meeting TipsyMcStagger and I at the Chef Shangri-La at 7:30 and then it's off to Hala Kahiki at about 9:00.

Anybody looking for something to do tonight is welcome to show up.

JT,
Jeez, I missed the "Sucks Ass" exhibit when I was last there...

Seriously, I'm surprised. If someone had asked, I would have guessed you'd be all over that place. I think you would have dug the Hiroshi Sugimoto show in '03, the Lee Bontecou show in '04 (both of which were astonishing), the Tropicalia exhibit in '05, and what looks to be an interesting sculpture thing going on now. The MCA is always on my list of things to do in Chicago. But as they say, to each, his own.

Scott and Kat are a lot of fun. Hope the tiki bar crawl goes well!
I,Z

Thank you to anyone who provided information or suggestions.

Kat and I had a good time in Chicago where we visited with tikibars, Tipsy McStagger, the members of the Windy City Islanders, and Scott from Tiki Terrace. We visited the Canoe Club, Chef Shangri La, Hala Kahiki, Tiki Terrace, and the incredible Pacific art display at the Field Museum. We also did a few touristy things like visiting the Shedd Aquarium and the Chicago Art Institute. We also threw in some shopping on the Magnificent Mile and found time to visit a few brewpubs. All in all, it was exhausting but good time.

...you forgot the part about how you were right next door to the Wal-Mart-sized Sam's Wine and Liquor and managed to not notice it...!

haha.

great meeting up with you guys.

Glad you made it to Tiki Terrace.

I was there tonight helping Scott Zuziak with the Jake S. show.
Good people there.
Lots of aloha in that place.


Oh, and IZ: I'll spare TC a treatsie on my opinions on contemporary art, but should you and I ever find ourselves at the same bar, I will gleefully engage you in a heated but friendly debate on the subject over a few Zombies...!

On Saturday we made a trip to Sam's. Wow! I wish we had a store of that size in Minnesota!

Yo Scott,

You get any Demerara 151 at Sams?

Also, just as an aside, I ordered some Pimento Liqueur that Glen and I will be splitting (there's another thread somewhere on here that talks about where to get it). I'll give you a heads up when and if it shows up and you can help sample it.

Nope. When we inquired with the staff, they informed us the distributor could not get any. They told us to check back in a month. Since Sam's will ship to Minnesota, I might place an order when they have it in stock.

I did pick up a bottle of Velvet Falernum, which I am eager to try out in a few drinks.
