WHAT: Texas Tikiphiles III
WHEN: Saturday, April 4th, 6pm –until??
WHERE: Trader Vic’s - Mockingbird Lane & 75/Central Expressway – Dallas, TX

OK all you so-called TX tiki people…NOW is the time to come out of the closet! Time to make yourself known and be part of the community. Time to mingle with other like-minded folks. Knowledge gained, friendships forged, many Navy Grogs consumed…

For too long, most the TX tiki community has been hiding in it’s armadillo shell, afraid of what weirdness may lurk in the minds of these so-called “tikiphiles” who converse regularly on the interwebs…or maybe it’s because the suffix “-phile” conjures up some sort of freakish fascination with tiki. All true, I’m afraid. And if you’re reading this chances are you’re no different.

In the past we’ve had raffles and giveaways, we got to see the original Barney West moai that used to be out front, we got to take away truckloads of extra bamboo and other pieces of unused décor, and as I recall we were the first to require Trader Vic’s send out furniture to be cleaned after our party. But most importantly, we got to know other tikiphiles….and not just the ones who live in Texas. So saddle up and join the party!

So what’s in store for this year? Unfortunately, the Barney West moai and all that extra bamboo are long gone. BUT…

If you never got a chance to grab a Dallas Star glass before they sold out, we’ll have some available at a very special price. Not to mention BRAND NEW unused cocktail menus.

TIKI RAFFLE!! You might get lucky and be the first on your block to own a genuine Big Lot’s tiki mug! Seriously, there will be some good stuff too. Lot’s of it.

Come a little early and take advantage of $5.00 Mai Tai’s and Zombies until 7pm!

The lounge area will be our primary area of occupancy. Drinks, appetizers & dinner are all available there. If you’d rather eat in the dining room away from all the mayhem, a reservation is recommended.

Is this event ONLY for Texans? HELL NO!

If you’re interested in seeing an often overlooked Trader Vic’s done in the classic style, Dallas is the one to visit. You can see pics of the restaurant
here. I’ve met several Trader Vic’s/tiki aficionados that made a special trip to Dallas to see this Trader Vic’s. They’ll all tell you it’s worth the trip and a MUST SEE.


Coming from out of town? Trader Vic’s is located at the Hotel Palomar, which is a really nice ultra-swanky place to spend the night, but some may find it not quite within their budget. There are plenty of other hotels to choose from. Here are just a few...all of these are on 75/Central Expressway north of Trader Vic’s and all less than 5 miles away.


Radisson – this is the closest hotel to Trader Vic’s.

Courtyard Marriott

Residence Inn

La Quinta Inn

Hyatt Summerfield Suites


Oh, one more thing, IF you plan on attending…posting a note here, a PM or an email to txtiki@gmail.com would be very much appreciated. Trader Vic’s appreciates being kept informed of how big a crowd to expect.

Got questions? ASK!!

My wahine and I are planning on coming. So count us for 2.
Do we need to bring anything for a swap/raffle?

Glad you guys are coming!

We've got the raffle covered, but if anyone chooses to add anything to it that's perfectly fine.
