Hey Kenike,

Do we have an update on the head count?

Aloha,

Now hear this....

Other than the special $65 per person menu, there IS NO OTHER FOOD....NOT EVEN AT THE BAR.

I just found this out and I'm pretty surprised.

I'm still going...I'll be the one with a bucket of chicken.

I'm also assuming no 5-7 happy hour either. I didn't ask when I called but I'm sure everything is full price.

Maybe we can get a discount on the Navy Grogs since they're out of rock candy sticks?

Does anyone know if the New Year's menu supplants the regular menu (for the evening), or if it's just a special supplement?

That's why I asked, at the time... I suspected that the regular menu was off for the night. Guess their answer slipped under your radar, Kenike

Heh, heh, that Kenike, he's such a kidder! No need to frisk him at the door, Trader Vic's - he's just pulling your leg.

No bar menu? Not good. Hopefully something will work out for food options.

If anyone wants to cancel I certainly understand and don't blame you one bit.

If you're a fan of TV's Facebook page you could leave a comment on the announcement I put there about there being no food. They definitely read that.

Right, just forget Trader Vic's.
Koitiki, everyone's coming up to your room - Texas Tikiphiles'll have their own party!
(Kenike, remember to bring enough Rangoons for everyone.)

I must say the path Trader V. has chosen for New Years Eve...certainly doesn't sound like it's a path to success..no disrespect intended to Chef Mike...but who ever is making the decisions should consider making some new ones...

We'll still be coming but not for the whole evening, I think just a couplefew drinks and then we'll head home. Looking forward to seeing everyone, hopefully the time we're there is when you guys are all there too!

Just wanted to drop in and let you know we are doing our best to listen and make as many people happy as possible. We sincerely understand your complaints, but from a business standpoint I promise you we are doing our best. Most revenue comes from the NYE dinner and to offer the menu we are offering, will take a lot of man power in the kitchen. To ensure that everyone's NYE dinner is the best it can be, we didn't want to risk stretching thin in the kitchen by offering the bar menu. We see your point about the issues of not offering it, but we looked at it logistically and this was our best option. Regardless, we hope you all enjoy your night and have a wonderful New Year's Eve. Be safe, and happy new year!

I want to say "Thanks" to Kenike...for making last night a special night, once again he went out of his way to ensure the best was available.. provided the best music and made other special arrangements on the groups behalf..Thanks..and A special "Thanks" to Chef Mike for his cooperation and consideration. He helped make it a great evening. We will still be regulars at Trader Vic's largely in part to Chef Mike's attention to the group. It can't be easy to run a place like that ..and also give special attention to our small group as well. A big THANK YOU to all who were there...what a night..pictures to follow later..so keep an eye out, and have your alibi ready....

Texas tikiphiles, you guys are GREAT!

Alissa and I are back in Denver tonight, but we both really had a fantastic time last night. Everyone made us feel welcome and part of your group.

Kenike, a big Mahalo for putting this all together, pulling off the proper music for the evening and super thanks for the Dallas TV souvenirs.

Chef Mike, I have visited many of the Trader Vic's, but last night was my first time your Big D location. You have a wonderful restaurant and I hope things continue to go well for you. Your focus on customer service was evident when you went out of your way to bring our group not one, but two large trays of crab rangoon on separate occasions (which meant extra unplanned work for you in the kitchen on NYE). A huge thank you, that's real customer service!

Zulu
