I went back to the Atlanta Trader Vic's last night and was rejuvinated... after two months I had already forgotten the true grandeur of the place.. The bartender, Hussein, is a great guy - and a fellow socialist! This is the second time he's given my a free drink after my first couple (not everything is about profit for us socialists). Anyway, I'd like to organize as big as possible a gathering here at the Atlanta TV's. I spoke with the manager and it would be possible to get a pretty good group discount if we could get 50 folks together. That's a little high for this sparsely populated tiki central outpost... but I have a feeling there are enough people in this group in the atlanta area to make for a festive t.v. night...
I'm going to be back there tomorrow night (friday 29th) so if any tiki centralites are up to it, meet me there and we'll squeeze some more free libations outta good ole Hussein

Let's use this thread to organize an atlanta gathering.. anyone who would be likely to come, post here, and check back here as we come up with details!

I also wanna organize a tiki central party in birmingham at the HeadHunter, so anyone who's interested in that post too

aloha,
kahukini

Wow! That sounds like a great idea to me. I thought I was the only one that would want to gather here in Atlanta (since I live here). Although I have already made plans for this Friday, I might be able to get out of them. Hopefully I'll be able to make it down, but if not, another gathering would be in order. As long as there are a few people willing to meet, I think it would be worth while. Let me know if there might be anymore interest and when the next time anyone will be headed to Trader Vic's.

-Matt

Atlanta Vics is high on our list, but we can't get there for a while. Marian and I have two other polynesian pop culture trips planned right now -- this weekend and April 20. Personally, it would help if you set a weekend this summer. That way we -- and hopefully others around the southeast and elsewhere -- could plan (and budget) for the journey. Best of luck.

Hey, this sounds good! If you shoot for a summer gathering, I'll be in Atlanta sometime during the last two weeks of July. I'm just making up my travel schedule now and will know the exact dates within the next week or two. Boy, oh boy, do I hope this'll work out! BTW, Kahukini, those are some fab photos of the spectacular home bar.

Well summer it is then. End of July works with my schedule too I think. Say, I just discovered that Junkman's Daughter in Little Five Points carries Tiki Farm mugs and the latest issue of the tiki news. It's all in one "shelf teir" section in the store but it's all good b/c the prices are the same as on the web but no shipping. And you get to pick out your mug yourself, b/c they're all slightly different due to variations in glazing.

Hi, all!

I'll be in Atlanta on Saturday the 20th of July. I saw the 27th suggested, but would the previous week work out? It would mean getting into all that fun a whole week earlier! Hope to see you all.

The 20th would probably work as well as the 27th for me.

kiliki, see how many folks you could round up for july 20th.. i don't think many of my birmingham friends will want to make the 2.5 hour trip to polynesian paradise & it would be fun to see if we could round up a big enough group for some kind of discount..

I would like to suggest inviting choice folks to the gathering and making it a larger event. There are people from the Luxuria list and Exotica list that I know would love to make it and that live in Atlanta or close enough to plan that far ahead.

That friend of mine that had a Christmas party at Trader Vic's had hula girls perform and fire eaters! And like I said, they hired a DJ for the event. Swanky and I would love to do that, if you and I meet up that weekend in April or soon we could talk to the management together. We have an extensive collection that we could bring to the party.

Aloha,
Tiki Kiliki

Wow! This may turn into quite the scene! Lookout, Westcoast, You SouthEast Tikiphiles are the new wave, I'll say. I sure am looking forward to meeting you all.

Awesome kiliki! Great ideas! We need to give this event a name... It can't be a "crawl" since there's only one stop. Maybe the 1st annual Atlanta Tiki Slosh

July sounds like a great time to meet. I am excited that so many people are interested in meeting in Atlanta! This concept just still baffles me!

I am willing to go whenenever anyone wants to meet (provided I have the cash!) up at Trader Vic's. I don't mind helping with the planning either, so if anyone wants to meet up there before hand and discuss the event over a Mai Tai, please let me know!

Matt
