Finally trying to revitalize the midwest tiki scene. Or, at least start one. I know there aren't very many of us, so this is going up early to build and spread the word. We have some people coming from out of state for this, so no excuses. If you're anywhere in the area, you need to be there!

The plan is to get there a little early for some grub upstairs and head down to the Mai Tai Lounge afterward for the real deal.

So, put it on your calendar and tell everyone you know. And, man, if anyone wants to visit from out of state and see the only tiki joint we have left in the mid-west you're more than welcome. Anyone unfamiliar with The Mt Fuji Inn can look here:

Sept. 25, 2010! See you there!

I forgot to mention that they are doing renovations just prior to our event, so it'll be nice and shiny for us!

GREAT!!! I am going to try to get my Niece and her husband, from Omaha, to this event. They are going to get to go to the Bali Hai festivities in August and they have seen the Tiki Lounge in my home (when it was in its early stages). I previously sent them a few mugs and Tiki Modern. Just trying to get them interested and it would be great for them to go to the Mt Fuji event. I will keep an eye on this thread and WAY TO GO!!!

Awesome! Throw a Mt Fuji mug in their next tiki care package so they can bring it along!

Hotel reservation is made; we will be there! I really hope we pack the place! It's important to show support for the only VINTAGE tiki bar left in the four state area.

When it gets a bit closer to tiki time, I'm gonna have to let them know to staff the place a little more than on a normal weekend. This is more people than I assumed would come. Thank you, everybody!

Okay, I sent them a letter. They've been called and written-to. They know we're coming. Let's give 'em a reason to be excited and show them a good time and how much we appreciate them still being the last and only tiki bar in the whole mid-west!

Tiki GO!

I stopped by Mt Fuji's yesterday while in Omaha to see Dave Matthews. The place was locked up tight and a sign on the door said "Closed for remodeling, will open September 19th".

I can't tell if I'm excited to see the changes or dreading the possibility that they've removed some mana from the place.

Either way, I'll see you all there! I'll be the one drinking!

This place never did open back up.
Hope I'm wrong.

What place was that? I spoke to Mt FUji a couple months ago and they stated that they'd be open by the time we get there. I will, of course, call again shortly before we meet, but al signs points to being open and welcome for our business.
