Ouch! Well, frankly, it is amazing that it lasted that long.

""It's an exciting time for all of us here at the Nugget," says new President and CEO Carlton Geer. "We feel confident that vibe will translate to all of our guests who experience Gilley's."

The vibe:



We are NOT excited! …wonder what is gonna happen to all those vintage Tikis.

We can only hope that they will allow some of us to rescue those tikis.

Crap! Hopefully they'll sell or auction off the good stuff, so some of us can rescue it.

We emailed the manager at the Nugget and they said late January or early February for a close date. So with that, is anyone interested in going up for a last hurrah, soon? The Fun Train doesn't start up until early February, so road trip carpool, Amtrak ? Ideas?

My wife and I visit my brother in Reno several times a year including MLK weekend. Trader Dick's is always a must stop for us. We will be there the weekend of January 17, 2014. Tnt or any other TC'ers can contact me if you will be there that weekend.

Heading up for one last fling with the Sac Ohana. Thanks for putting this trip together Mike...I have my room already. Hope they will be open to passing on a few items to the Tiki enthusiasts...we can only hope. I want a menu...and a Tiki.

Looks like we have a couple of weekends covered (January 11th and January 18th)...see you there!!!!
