All ya all,

I am going to be in Chicago for some training the week of March 24th and will be stayiing over the weekend, returning home on Sunday the 30th. Anyone want to meet up for dinner and drinks?

Pretty much open to any night and since I went to the Tiki Terrace last time, I would like to go to some of Chicago's other tiki haunts.

Suggestions or TCer's to meet up with?

Psycho Tiki D (I know I am and you know it too)!

You must see Hala Kahiki, of course.

Dinner and mai tais at the chef, and then up the road to HK for dessert drinks (get their coffee, tea, or ice cream drinks, and you won't be disappointed; get their traditional tropical cocktails, and you WILL be disappointed).

Also, maybe Trader Vic's will be open by the time you get here.

Where is Vic's supposed to be at?

It looks like our visit to the Hala Kahiki will be on Thursday night March 27th. Not sure which night we will be at Chef Shangri-la? Hope to see some locals either way!

Sounds excellent, will probably be there around 7:00 for dinner and then the bar afterwards. Same with Thursday night at the Hala Kahiki. May try to venture out to the other Aku Aku on Saturday. How far from the Windy City is this place?

It will be great to meet you all!

Aku Tiki room was 3 hours from Chicago.
It closed a few months ago.

Hala Kahiki has no food, and there isn't anything decent to eat anywhere near it (no, that hot dog stand doesn't count).
I definitely recommend going there after the Chef - they're both a fairly long drive from the city, but they are not too far from each other.

Sorry I can't join you, I'll be in Ohio.

Not sure why I thought the Hala Kahiki had food? Thanks for the information though on both the Aku Tiki Room and Hala Kahiki.

Will plan some other activities then. Is the Tiki Terrace still open and did they move?

Maybe I'll catch you the nest trip tikibars, have fun in Ohio!

Tiki Terrace is in mid-move, so no, not currently open.
Have fun!

If you're up for a little drive (about an hour from downtown Chicago), there's always the Rendez'vous in Kenosha, Wisconsin as well.
Great bar, good drinks, and great owners. Worthy of a drive, if you have the time.

Like HK, no food, so come full, or, if you come early you can order a pizza from a local delivery place

They are open Tues-Sat 7pm-2am, in case you are interested.

Alas, I will be in Utah most of the time while you are here, so I won't be able to meet-up in Chicago or Kenosha - sorry about that....
