From the revamped TV website: http://tradervics.com/locations/newlocations.html



That is a sh*tload of locations... I guess the new-ish TV's CEO Robert Davies is really earning his paycheck... I want to go to the ones in the Caribbean.

Thanks AlienTiki - I think you're right about Kansas (corrected)

Three new Trader Vic's in England, do you think the Manchester one will be co-owned by the Gallagher brothers?

Interesting how many of those are in Saudi and other Muslim countries that don't drink alcohol. I would think that tikis and non-abstract artwork featuring human representations might be problematic as well.

Kansas City had a Trader Vic's. In was in the Crown Center Hotel on the Missouri side.
I used to take dates there, made them feel special way back in High School!!!

Aqaba! that's right near Eilat, way less of a hassle to get there! I believe I'll have better luck getting G to visit there than Amman or Cairo.

Sadly, Tel Aviv is not ready for TV.

Wow, maybe Trader Vic's should rename the franchise name to McTiki's.

Yeah, I've wondered about that, myself, for a while. Trader Vic's were closing all over the U.S., and opening right and left in Dubai, etc. Especially wonder about Saudi Arabia. Spare ribs and a Mai Tai, under the grimacing visage of Lono? Uh, some folks are rather... adamant about that sort of thing in Saudi, aren't they?

As the defenders of the Hajj, the Vic's in Saudi definitely won't be serving any pork or alcohol. Don't know about Lono, but he's probably Tiki non grata as well.

I lived in Kuwait and Dubai back in the Sixties, and there are Western-only zones and clubs where liquor can be served and consumed. My parents spent a lot of time there!...
