I was in Portland recently and stopped by Roberttiki's FAB wine bar POUR on Broadway and 27th (?), and afterwards I was lucky enough to be shown the site for the new tiki bar Thatch just a few doors down. It is going to be AWESOME! Can't wait to see the final! Estimated grand opening about a month? Be sure to post on tiki central when it opens!!

Mahalo,

dangergirl

well, For starters, all the plumbing is done. For a sunken bar, you (maybe you do, but I had didn't) have no idea the plumbing nightmere it became.

The Arnet and Davis designed booths are finished in shiny orange.

The sheetrockers finished up their job on Thursday.

The Bamboo Craftsman, Troy Susan is loading tonnnes of bamboo into the place.

Mark Peterson of NW Tiki Crawl fame is helping out too. No one in Portland has more knowledge.

The Velvet Paintings, done by whiz kids Pander Bros. came out so much better than imagined. I almost peed myself at their unveiling. Ask me about the naked chick story sometime.

The bar is en route from Michigan

Looking like some time in Sept, dates will be posted here first.

BUT, between sept 9 and 19th, I will be riding a Vespa scooter across country, so if you want a tour, it can't be during that time.

It takes a year and ten days?

I would have thought only six months or so on a Vespa.

I've been waiting for something like this ever since Trader Vic's closed its doors.

I CAN'T WAIT!

I think RoberTiki is on his cross-country tour, so he can't answer our questions, or get an Ohana Hut...

In any case on my way home today (at 5:00pm) I saw the front door to Thatch was open and construction people were working on it. I figured that with Robert gone nothing would get done, but they are still working on it..

I wouldn't hold my breath for it being open by the end of the month, but I think if he really puts the effort in it might be possible.

Robert, is that pic of you on yer Lamby participating in a "slow race"? I know that pose. (I own a 1964 All-State VNB, fully restored by Eric Larson of Scooter Shop, Orange CA)

RoberTiki: Are you going to have a pre-Grand Opening night for TC members to come and help break in your bar staff and make sure everything is going smoothly?

Hope your cross country trip is going/went well, and that all the construction you wanted done while you were gone has gotten done!

Robert,

Hope to see a lot the Tiki from the Jasmine Tree there!
We're still saddened that it's gone!

Please let us know if you do a TC Grand Opening Event!
Mrs. Mojo and I LOVED Portland and would drive up there from the Bay Area for any decent excuse!
