Heritage Vancouver & Funhauser Decor are happy to announce:

Lost Paradise - an enchanted day & night in the Polynesian Rooms of the fabulous Waldorf.
Saturday, July 21st, 2007
Tickets $50 - include lectures/dinner/entertainment
Lost Paradise

Finally, an event in Vancouver, Canada!
Vancouver’s last remaining classic Tiki venue will be host to this full day event. This is a fundraiser for Heritage Vancouver, the people that champion endangered venues like the Waldorf. There will be tours and a historic lecture followed by dinner, cocktails and entertainment into the late night. The Polynesian themed rooms will be open for your lounging pleasure. We hope to showcase the Waldorf the way it was meant to be experienced. We also want to profile Vancouver’s Tiki Scene, past & present. Anyone that loves classic venues like this won’t be disappointed, this place is a treasure!

Lectures & Entertainment:

Donald Luxton from Heritage Vancouver will talk about the history of Tiki in Vancouver. His presentation will include historic photos and details about the many venues including Trader Vic's that once flourished in our city.

Tiki Central's Dawn Frasier (aka Sophista-Tiki) will be talking about her Polynesian Americana Museum of Polynesian Pop. Her lecture will cover the concept, logistics and time-line of bringing her dream to reality.

Then it's time for tours of the Waldorf and dinner in the Polynesian Room.

Entertainment follows with Selector Lopaka spinning his Exotica magic in the Tahitian Lounge under the twinkling twilight starred ceiling and velvets by Leeteg.

Meanwhile, downstairs, the Polynesian Lounge will host local surfabilly band The Kon Tikis spiced with some South Pacific themed Burlesque by Shaboobie Boobarella.

An important travel note to plan ahead:
If you are planning to come to this event from the U.S. you may require a valid passport. Not so much for entering Canada but for returning home. Anyone entering the U.S. by air requires a valid passport. For Land and Sea, you can still use picture ID. However, it’s been my experience that people with passports are processed faster (U.S. citizens or not).
For more info, visit the U.S. Customs website.

Americans dont need passports to get into Canada, We only need passports to get into America. Sounds like a good time Pepe.

I never did post my photos from the summer of 2005 Waldorf excursion. So I'll post a few here to perhaps garner a bit more attention for this great tiki temple:


Downstairs


Upstairs with Lushy


Tiki downstairs


Mask downstairs


Still best not to ask.

I was in Canada a few months ago and went to the Waldorf. They refused to let me into the Tiki Bar. I was disappointed I didn't get to see it.

Thanks for your interest in the event, we'd really love to see you all here for it!! Coupled with Tiki Kon V, it could be a fun NW Tiki excursion!

Just wanted to share this vintage postcard I received from the manager. I thought it was beatiful now!! Still has it's luster but not quite like this..



PS - TikiTrevor sorry to hear about that. It's been difficult in the past to get in. They now have a new manager that seems to realize what they have. You can always join us here on the July 21st for another chance!
