I agree with Kenike. The Dallas Vic's is pretty much the only authentic tiki destination in the Great State (I just hope the local scene can support it). As much as I'd love to have an event at a location closer to me, such as the Hula Hut, I just can't rationally support moving from a top-notch genuine tiki spot like Vic's to some watered-down island themed place.

Of course, those are the words of a Texas tikiphile that didn't make it to the event because of travel conflicts. So... while I support Kenike's point in theory, I'm obviously an example of how the travel requirements act to thin the crowd in practice. But I don't see any way around that. Vic's is the best location, and I doubt moving the event to Austin or San Antonio would really generate that much more interest. In that case, there would be people from North Texas and Oklahoma that wouldn't be able to make the trip.
