hey all - the legendary Tiki Bar at Vancouver's Waldorf Astoria hotel (Hastings street, minutes from downtown -- and not a terribly glamorous part of town!) is REOPENING this weekend, March 4th, and then will be open for business on weekends to the general public!! This is great news as this bar is in MINT CONDITION, all original stuff from its heyday in the 40's, 50's -- including original and incredible Leetag paintings -- worth zillions!! The people who are owning and running the place are really wonderful and deserve our support as they try to make a go of one of the few still remaining original tiki palaces in north america!

I'm directing a mystery movie there for here!tv at the end of the month, march 31, during the day -- if you are around, have a tux or dinner jacket or cocktail dress (retro style is fine!) and wanna be an extra, come on down....

in the meantime, hope you can make the first weekend opener, and let's really show these brave and lovely folks we appreciate what they're trying to do!!

mahola,
Ron Oliver

Wow, sure wish I could make it out for all that! Sounds like great times. The Tikibar TV people should be most happy about this!

Holy frijole!!! I am THRILLED!!!

I wonder if I can bug our Portland friends to take a field trip up there with us when we visit them in a few weeks...they already love the Alibi...

Well, one way or another I am so there. Sounds like an "ultimate tiki experience" in many ways, I mean, think about it: an original 40's-50's tiki bar with NO CRAPPY 80'S REMODEL.

Can't wait.

I just reread my first post on this thread - written at OHMYGOD O'CLOCK yesterday morning before I was awake - and just realized something - did I actually write "MAHOLA?"

good lord...

I guess the first round's on me.

mahalo (ahem),
RO
