Hey Jim! Manuel and I will be there (not at 7pm, but we'll be there!)
The TV lounge will finally be super-tikified with TIKIYAKI in the house... or, er, lounge!

How is Tony's ?

I've always wanted to go.

I was in redondo myself this past Sunday. I also went to Sunday Brunch at KONA, which was unfortunately very under attended. I wonder if the Hawaiian Slack Key guitar festival in Redondo had anything to do with that. The spread of food they put out was first rate... Tons of great stuff, all you can eat, and it was ll good.
Tupua put on a great show, and for $26.95 ( I had $5 off coupons from the email list, so even cheaper for me) this was a great deal, compared to most Champagne Brunches that are out there.

Anyway, I hope to see some TC peeps at Vics tomorrow Nite.

The Mai Tais at Tony's are not TV's Mai Tais, but they do pack a punch.
I am always in the crows nest. so you can only order appetizers up there.
they are always good(aka bad for you fried type stuff) which is great when drinking.

I was at the Slack Key Fest,
it was 20 seats shy of being sold out,
packed man,
I have never seen more Hawaiian shirts,
even at Tiki Oasis.
But I have no idea if there was TC people there.
I didn't recognize anybody.
how many people does the Redondo Performing arts center hold.

anyways is JP going to Vics tomorrow,
hes seems lost in action after the Geek fest.

Yea, it sure looked like there was ALOT of people there. I perused the vendors outside, but didn't go into the show.

Man, I wish I could get that many people to a Tikiyaki show

I need to go to Old Tony's, I love the Redondo Pier....Alot of it still looks relatively untouched from the 70's. Need to cherish that while it lasts.

Jim,
you should get in touch with the people that do the shows at the redondo performing arts center,
there is going to be a Hawaiian vocal music show coming up soon.
anyways ask them about getting you guys involved somehow.
not with those shows, but just in that scene somehow.

also check out this.
www.hawaiianconcertguide.com

as for Tony's yeah we need to go there.

Back to the Trader Vics.
is the Lounge closing?
as lame as it is,
I still dig sitting under the 60 ft palms, like the ones at the Hanalei in SD and drinking Navy grogs and looking at the swimming pool.
sometimes they show old surf movies on the giant wall.

Thanx for the info, I'd love to perform in a "Performing Arts Center", tho I certainly don't mind playing in our fine SoCal Tiki Establishments.

I'm pretty sure that Vicsin the Bev Hilton is not long for this world.

That's OK, we have Trader Vics LA coming to save the day, and do it RIGHT, by the way.

Hey Jim,
If you ever want to check out Tony's, shoot us an email or give a ring... we live a couple blocks from the R.B. Pier and like to get to Tony's as often as possible. Tony's has some decent food - and the best part is that you get to keep your Mai Tai glass. In my pre-motherhood days I used to go down and drink a whole set of glasses at a time My artist-extraordinaire uncle, Bob Schuchman, did the bust of Tony T. that is just inside the door downstairs.
Hope to make it to another Tikiyaki gig one of these days soon,
Terra
