Maholler back to you lamon!

If anyone gets the chance to make the trip up here and would like to check out Victoria on Vancouver Island(defunct Trader Vic's serving as a B&B 5 minutes from the ferry terminal) Feel free to give me a shout!

I make a wonderful tour guide, and know all the flea market, thrift, and antique spots, as well as the best spots in town for breakfast, etc. For drinks you'll have to visit my place. But the price is right!

Mrs. Pappy and I have already decided on a second honeymoon back to Vancouver. Now I think we should have it sooner! For once some GOOD tiki news.

Well Saturday was certainly interesting! The Polynesian lounge was open so I really can't complain.
Ok, there was five of us sitting at the bar (the Polynesian lounge was ours!). Later, Johnny Johnny (Tiki Bar TV) and some friends made a brief appearance but I think they were a bit disappointed. We still had a great time, we even closed the place down but it was quite clear that they need to work on some things. You know it's serious when you have to instruct the bartender on how to make a Mai Tai!! There's no sound system in the lounge so the only music was from the live band next door (Waldorf -non Tiki- Pub/Sports Bar). Having said that, they did listen to our suggestions and this month is really just a time for trial and error.
We all decided that it will take our support to get the place going. Mustering everyone we know for regular weekend(s) (maybe the first and/or last Saturday?) would be fun. Hell, we've got this great venue available to us so lets start using it. It seems the management is quite open to ideas. The bar tender said they still talk about 'Holy Crap It's a Tiki Event in Vancouver' and how blown away they were that people would come from far & wide to see the place.
So Vancouver (and most certainly, everyone out of town!!), starting in April, I think we need to gather a bunch and take the place over at least one night, if not more per month!!

yes, Pepe it was a slim but lovely night, and while there were only a handful of us, I agree that it could become a "thing"....I'm going to have one of my minions drop a bar guide Tiki style off at the bar so that poor boy can bone up on his Mai Tais and Zombies....but having said that, I think with the right support and provocation we could make this place into something...they are planning to have live jazz starting the end of March, so that's a good start!

I'm going to be in Vancouver with the Missus and some other assorted family members this coming weekend. Anybody know if this place is still up and running on the weekends (i.e. Sunday)?

hey Josh -- I think the Waldorf bar is only open for biz on Fri and Sat nights, but I may be wrong....they are very nice folks, we shot a movie there in April and they were incredible to deal with....certainly worth giving a call to funhauser -- those guys are the best! Ron O.

We've been so busy with work I haven't checked-in on the Waldorf lately! As far as I know, on Fridays, there's a DJ spinning 'House' and Saturdays are hit and miss as they still rent the rooms to private functions. Best to call them before you go!
Here's their site:

I heard from a friend in Vancouver that Dr. Tiki and his crew plan to re-open the Waldorf's tiki lounge soon.

Here's a story/profile from the Vancouver Courier:

I am going to Vancouver tomorrow. Is this place open to the public? I've seen both yes and no. Can someone clarify...
