And just like last time, it is NOT a solo performance, nor one with Robert Drasnin, nor anything remotely tiki. Instead, as it was 3 years ago on Easter Sunday, I'm singing with a big (150-175) choir, tagging along with the 24 from our school as a singing chaperone. *Sweet* perk.

This time we're doing Mozart's "Requiem" on the Sunday before Easter, Palm Sunday. Lots of very famous parts, used by film directors all the time to add oomph to a battle scene. I actually recommend you attend if you remotely like this kind of stuff. (Last time was John Rutter's Magnificat, which while lovely, isn't on anyone's greatest hits list yet.)

So why am I posting here in Tiki Events?
Because I get the night before off (March 31) and I want to see my NYCTC kin! Last time I did Otto's Shrunken Head, which I enjoyed very much. I'd like to see Waikiki Wally's this time. (On Friday, I get to see Spamalot!) I know it's better on a weeknight, but that's the way the coconut rolls.

Waikiki Wally's:
99 (101?) East 2nd St in the East Village between 1st and A
(Look for the neon palms and big Moai out front)
Closest subway stop - the F or V at 2nd Ave
Phone - (212) 673-8908

Time: 7:00

Sadly, Cinderella will have a curfew: 11:00, which precludes driving out to some cool Jersey spot. That's because I have to get back to see if the kids are back for their curfew! I also will have to be limited to one drink, maybe two. Top singing form is required, no matter *how* tasty Waitiki Wally's drinks are.

Let me know if you can join me. I'm having some non-TC friends join me again too.

For Tiki, I prefer Waikiki Wally's to Ottos.

More of a real Tiki vibe, less of a rocker bar.

I love the Donn Beach clay scuptures, the big mural, and the hula dancing hostess.

Have fun on your trip!
Glad someone finished Requiem for Mozart so you can sing it!

Alice -- that REALLY cool! Holy crap, I miss singing choral music. My degree is in Voice from Indiana University (yes - the "factory"). I'm jealous. I miss singing choral music.

Anyway, enough of my whining. I just think that's cool that you're doing Mozart's Requiem at Carnegie.

I checked my calendar and a trip to NYC would work for me that weekend. I'd like to meet Formikahini and any other TCers at Waikiki Wally's. Never been to Waikiki Wally's. I'll take the train to NYC and do some shopping. What time should we meet at Wally's?

Yay, KTM!

I'll let you know that time as I learn of my schedule. Something evening-ish, probably dinner and drinks afterwards?

Looking forward to meeting you (and khan-tiki-wahine?) and any others who jump on board

I don't know yet if my wife will come along. I just put her on a plane for Costa Rica about an hour ago. She's going to visit relatives for 2 weeks. She probably isn't going to want to travel again for awhile. What if I brought my daughter? What are the rules at Waikiki Wally's does anyone know? My daughter is 19 so not legal but could she hang out?

I'm assuming it's a restaurant, and she can therefore eat but not order cocktails. But call and confirm, and then please post the results; I have some younger friends (one 19 too!) also joining me and I'd love to make sure I told her correctly.

Wally's is certainly a restaurant, and i have been there with kids too. Kids always enjoy seeing Wally, the bird!

If i still lived there I would have come out to join you, boo. Your concert sounds really cool...Carnegie Hall ?!?! practice, practice, practice!

Give my regards to broadway!

Bump to update:

7:00
We are meeting at Waikiki Wally's on Saturday evening, March 31.

It's looking to be a rather nice group. I may call to reserve a table. Ask for Alice Berry's table when you get there.
