Was there all day, cleaning *cough* the old Jasmine tree stuff and hanging it.

Funny, out in another room, I thought I would have too much tiki stuff.

I WANT MORE!!!

Bar arrives on the 23rd.

As always, stop by Pour and I'll give you a tour.

Had to yell at 3 adults as if they were small children on touching the velvets. Keep your hands in your pockets, or your friends pockets. Just don't touch the velvets.

Do you mean that Thatch opens on the 23rd, or the bar that you were getting shipped in will finally arrive on the 23rd?

Sounds like you need some velvet ropes surrounding them..

HA! If I had the money, and a place to put it, I would be all over it. However, my sister just smacked me and told me no. Personally, I was hoping to use it as some form of interactive coffee table. Oh well.

Anyway, regardless of that, still looking forward to eventual opening! A time will come, when I can enter, and order me a mai tai. I look forward to that day!

I'll link this to the tiki marketplace forum. It would be nice to see this go to a TC member. Good luck with the sale and your new bar.

I just got around to blogging all of the tiki places I visited in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia in early October. Here are some images from the tour Robert and Theressa were so kind as to give me.



Black Velvets from the Pander Brothers, above and below. Their previous credits include artwork for DC comics' Batman.




Armet and Davis booth from a Dennys



Robert said this intimate area would be called the The Velvet Hut because it'll be lined with black velvet paintings.



This is the main area; remember, I visited almost six weeks ago so it'll look much farther along by now.



One of the artifacts from The Jasmine Tree

Looks like it is making progress, thanks for the pictures!

Has anyone heard of an estimated opening date?

If you don't know I don't know who would.

Did the bar arrive on time?
