Here is Jade Island photos and link:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=19003&forum=4&hilite=jade%20island

I drove there - but I'm told ferry to cab is the best way to go from lower Manhattan - last I heard the ferry was still free and a cab split by 4 people can't be too much.

I'd be into going not sure what weekend fits - but MLK weekend is one that was mentioned.

Yes, the ferry is still free and it is a fun start to the journey. The cab ride isn't all that long--certainly a lot quicker than the bus!

I visited Jade Island about 10 years ago and loved it. I drove though, and got lost. The idea of a ferry to a cab sounds ideal and if it works, should become a really great regular excursion for the NYC contingent.

King Yum looks good too.

Well, crap, I guess we have to do them both, no?

Seeing these photos inspired me to make a mai tai!

Thanks and Cheers!(and Happy New Year!)

Jack

A miracle has happened and I actually have my work schedules in advance.
Wanted to see if any of these dates worked for people and/or which place
they'd like to journey with us. By the way, David's new tiki name is Fang!

dinner at King Yum, Queens or Jade Island, Staten Island?
possible dates for us:

Sun. 1/13,
Fri, Sat 1/18 or 1/19
Sun 1/20

P.S. You are also all invited pre-Fisherman Band on Jan. 7
Monday, 6pm for a bite to eat at our place. Fisherman's
last free show at Otto's Shrunken Head that night around 9pm.



Kiki - thanks for starting this thread. Nicole and I are around for the 7th and would love to come by and I guess we will have to suck it up for the late Monday night Fisherman show since it is the last one for a while.

Sounds like lots of other things are being kicked around too. For those other dates, we can't do the 13th, but we are available for any excursions "off the island" on the other days.

I guess I should have phrased it AND/OR King yum and Jade Island
Sounds like there is interest in both.

When I hear from everyone I'll try to tally up responses....

Oh, and by the way, Happy New Year!

Saturday the 19th is best for me and we could make a whole day out of it and hit both, one for lunch the other for dinner.

I'll take the baton and run with it from here Kiki- no need to stress. I think Friday the 18th would be good for King Yum, and I think Sunday the 20th for lunch, would be good for Jade Island. Who is up for those dates?

Okonkuluku!

Tabuzak and I, and my lady, will be at Jade Island on 1/13 either for lunch or early dinner probably. Time is not TBD. We have our own transportation lined up probably but if folks want to meet us there, feel free to email me at
brian@waitiki.com for my cell and we can meet up. I'd love to meet any TC NYC ohana who would like to come, esp those who trekked out to Shun lee's this last week who I missed due to multiple polynesian paradises in midtown!

Also, as an fyi - the google maps location for King Yums is WRONG. you need to map 181st and Union Turnpike , 11366 to get the right location. Closed at 11pm ; we made it at 1022pm last night and had enough for a couple drinks and grub and we had to get booted!
