I think the Venus is hip to us cheap ass Tiki types....Tooo few in # tooo small a pocket book.. they're in business to make money and are looking to bring in the general public.

thats what i've heard

I agree with Al that they want the general public in there and don't want to limit their possible occupancy by letting us reserve the place. I also think that if we go in there, I for one am not going to be ordering a four dollar coors light. We're there for the real deal and to spend a lot of money on tropical drinks. We don't need the Venus, I have come to terms that that place is a dance club. We could easily fill the Cove AND provide a band. If they are ignoring that, I think hope may be lost.

We don't need to reserve the place for ourselves. If they would so much as comply with reverting back to the old format for one night then we have won.

Hula, I'll see you there soon again amongst the Hip Hop and the Club music. Tell Corinne I'm on my way.

Hey All! I actually got a response from the Venus!!! And Fri night is open!

it might help APE if there were some inquiries as to the "roomers APE was playing there"...Hmmm

Also can the turnip be squeezed a bit more for an Ape gig at the Venus???
I will not be carving at the Venus, you will have to go to the HardRock for that.

looks like there is a $20 cover for dudes, chicks are free! at the Venus

if Ape pulls off booking a gig there... I think we could swing getting TC folks in with a pass or discount if we have proof of them going to Mondo the next day. The money would be coming out of the band's cut of the door. This is all up in the air...

The place holds 550. I don't know if they draw a big regular crowd or not.
How many TC'ers will show on Fri night?

How would it work if Ape played at the Cove.. Do they book bands?, Would we pass the hat? Would we get a DJ?

The Cove is just a small bar. Venus adjoins the Cove and it is the performance venue.

There is a tiny tiny stage behind the bar at the cove - room for a 1-3 singers - never seen it actually used? Maybe we could do a Martin Denny Birdcall Kareoke going there!
Venus has room for a 8 piece band however.

There is potentially a large group of people who may attend a Friday night event at Taboo Cove / Venus because that entire weekend is the Viva Las Vegas rockabilly event. Some TC members (myself and sweet pea(?) to name 2) will be there and plenty of people who appreciate tiki culture. The trick is getting folks to leave the event considering the best acts are on Friday and Saturday from about 8PM - 2AM. I may attend the Tiki Farm bash at the Hard Rock but it would be in the daytime on Saturday. Friday night features Joe Bennett, Ruth Brown and others. If any event at Taboo Cove is going to happen it should last into the wee hours so folks from VLV might attend but not miss the best performers, which are the main reason for going to VLV.

I't's true, i will be in Vegas too, but for VLV, like the Jab said. hmmm, Looking at the scheule for Friday night, I dont' think I'm gonna be leaving the Gold Coast, at least not till 3 am... is the Cove open that late?
If so, I'll do my darndest, but that means I would miss Ape, dagnabit (HOWDY AL!) Anyhow, hmmph. If any of you are in Vegas EARLY, oh, lets say Thursday between 2-6 pm, and ya wanna do some boozin and schmoozin, and see some kewl RAB bands, (yup, I git live bands this year) come on over to The Orleans. I'm havin a lil par-tay at Brendans Irish Pub. It'll be fun!

For the folks with tiki toddlers, I HIGHLY encourage taking them away for the weekend trek to Mondo Tiki. My fondest and most memorable childhood memory of Easter was when my family was on a road trip to explore California. I remember being really honestly worried that the Easter Bunny would never know where we were, since we weren't gonna be home on Easter morning. But sure enough the Easter bunny found our hotel room and even set up a little hunt in our hotel room in Carmel California which I will never ever forget.
