***UPDATE*** The Trader Vic's story has been RESCHEDULED for Thursday May,03 at 10am! I called the station and confirmed.

Christiki295 had posted this, but I thought it deserved its own thread in case people missed the post, and wanted to listen in LIVE via podcast or live stream from their website...
The matter will be discussed today, Wednesday, by one of our number on KPCC Airtalk at 10:00 a.m. on 89.3 FM.

I also am sending over an email with the "Official Press Release" so they have something to refer to, in case they don't have it...Call in too,if you have time to express your feelings about the whole scheme of things.

yeah, it seems so...they did mention at 10am that they were going to discuss the closure of TV, but the riots takes precedence i guess! I want to go picket trader vic's and cause a riot now! maybe we can get some media to cover me getting a baton cracking me in the head....then again, maybe not!lol

Now they've moved on to discussing Taiwan, when they should be talking about Mai Tais at Trader Vic's Beverly Hills.

As unhappy as I am about this closure as well....try to keep in mind that it's just not that big a deal to the rest of the Beverly Hills area and certainly not the country or the world...otherwise it would have never gotten closed in the first place.

Naturally ALL OF US here on Tiki Central are pissed to high heaven about the matter but that still never managed to get it registered as a Historically Important Sight or on the National Register for Historic Places.

I will stop to see if they do finally talk about it in the media at all just because I'll be interested to know a Non-Tiki fan opinion of it all.

Well here is a media clip from our local news that I had contacted prior to heading there to take my last outside pictures. The coverage is basically the release that the Hilton put out.
Fox 11 talks about Trader Vic's

Well, as I might have suspected they were very nonchalant about the whole thing.....don't worry it's not going away completely, they're moving it pool side it's just smaller......no, they're tearing down a National Historic Landmark and replacing it with a little, shiny piece of CRAP with no historical relevance what so ever!

Kick a couple for me too. I could suggest a pair of initials, but I think we all know whose rocks we'd like to see kicked. What can the media do now but eulogize TV's 90210? Chopping her in the night totally changed the campaign; there's no "there there" to "save" anymore. Just pieces, any by now probably not even possible to even theoretically put right again. Nice.

The media could possibly maintain some interest were this story recast as "a murder investigation", which it is -- the decision of a short-sighted few (and another few who looked the other way) to kill off a treasured part of our cultural heritage, before equal forces could be brought to bear. Axe in the night, knife in the back. Dishonorable. The Fix is Big, and the media is on to the next story.
