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?
