Vontiki gave me a preview of Ventiki yesterday and I think we are in for a treat. A nice blend of modern and tropical. While it is cozy inside there is also an outdoor patio with a fire pit and water feature. Some of the space is taken up by a nice kitchen and the food on the menu looks great. You can see more photos on their Facebook page. The lamps from Nelson's Tiki Hut look great. They want to do things right so that is why there has been a delay. We look forward to the opening and wish them much success.

Soft opening is for friends and family and closed for staff training on the weekend so Monday will be the official public opening.

So barring unforeseen chaos Monday seems to be the Official Opening like Bongo said.....the Vice Squad has been helping around and have been able to sample some of the food and more importantly the drinks....both are very tasty.....

Tonight is the grand opening. Last friday was the soft opening with stellar drinks and great food. Ventura county has a real Tiki palace again almost fifty years to the day that the Trade Winds opened a few miles away. Good luck to Scott Noble and his cousin Stacey Noble in their new Tiki palace. Thanks to Vontiki for his awesome Tiki carvings, Chef Jonny Machete for the killer food, Tiki Tony for the art work and Bongo Fury for the great blow fish lamp he made and Doc Shocker for his Lapu lapu. I'm heading down to the opening soon to meet up with Annie Ellis whose father Richard Ellis was a great Tiki carver and designer from the 1960's. See some of you there!

Thanks to Dr. Bongo, and Timo for the pics.
If I go to the car show at the fair grounds on Labor Day weekend
I'll definitely check out Ventiki.
