Yeah, where do we sign up?!?

Is there anything in the works for a grand opening event? (or a close-to-the-grand-opening-event-that-regular-shlubs-like-me... or I... can attend) I wanna be a part of the celebration as soon as possible!!!

And that front will certainly not remain looking that bare, that looks like a Blockbuster Video store. Trader John was merely proudly displaying the new sign, which is nice. There will be an awning, plants, some bamboo, and most importantly, an entrance flanked by two Tiki Diablo Tikis.



I have to say, that is one truly ugly building. Looks like a government building built in the 1960s/1970s.

I like Government building built in the 60's.

At least it's not "Taco Bell Tuscanny" - Puke yellow stucco with a spanish tile roof.

They have a long way to go. When I took this pic a little while back, there was nothing but the studs and some of the mechanical systems.

The web site says April 15th, not March. I'd be surprised if they are able to open any earlier that June. I hope I'm wrong.

Have faith that we are working as hard as possible to make this Trader Vic’s the best!, and to open as soon as possible. But there are certain elements that we cannot control, but we still are hoping to open in April. (Not June)

I look forward to seeing everyone there with a Mai Tai in your hands soon.

As a downtown resident, I will be there with mugs on.

Whatever the first day is that I can get in there. (Hint hint.)

How about a special "preview" day for TC members????
