Some of you may have read my earlier posts about Bamboo Island, the new restaurant in Pleasanton. Well, they have been open for a few months and are doing well, according to my coversation last week with the owner. But they haven't had a proper opening celebration until now:

On Sunday the 28th of July, they will be hosting their First (hopefully) Annual Island Luau. Here's what you'll get:

-A buffet featuring slow roasted pig, mahi mahi, salmon, and I can't remember the rest.
-One free Mai Tai or Lava Flow per person
-Happy Hour pricing all day. ($4 for select tropical drinks)
-All this for $20 per person.

For those who have not seen the place yet, is it tiki? No- it looks like a Roy's. But once again, we should encourage places that try at least. There are about nine exotic drinks on the menu, some look pretty good, and many promise fresh juice. There are also two very large, semi-Marquesan tikis inside, so it could be worse.

I say, let's show 'em how it's done. Show up in full regalia and do it up right.

Tiki Central has a table for ten people reserved already for six p.m. I'm sure I could add more if there's demand. RSVP to this thread, and let's have a blast. I need to hear back from everyone by Friday the 19th so I can let them know a final head count well in advance, as they expect to be booked solid.

(Perhaps after dinner drinks in Emeryville at a little place out on the water?)

Hope we can get a tikiposse,

-martin

Martin-

I just remembered I have tickets to see Television (the band) that night so please count me out of the luau. Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Huh? WHERE IS THIS PLACE??? I work in Pleasanton and have never heard of it!

Also, we have a new (sort of, about a year old now I think) Tiki bar in Walnut Creek too -- Tiki Tom's. It's actually a little more Hawaiian than Tiki, but still their drink list is very close to Trader Vic's (and about as pricey!) Unfortunately, on weekends it's tought to just go for drinks as they take reservations for dinner and live show. There dinners are also pricey at nothing to write home about....

Found it! Damn! two blocks away from my daughter's daycare and I never knew...where is my sixth tiki sense >:-(

Well, I'll have to go there for lunch next week. I'll let you know how it is.

All right, everyone: where are you guys hiding?

Mig, Fonduie: right on.

The Jab: Grrr.... Since you have the coolest tapa suit in the world, you are forgiven.

I has lunch there last week and can report that the food is very good! I wish I could say the same for the drinks, but we can fix that. The Mai Tai is a loooooooong way from a traditional, but is refreshing and not full of grenadine at least.

I want to fill this table! We've got five- c'mon bay area types, give me five more:

Hanford, Aquarj, midnite, wrath_of_tiki, tikiboy, TikiHula, Tiki-Bot, Kingslod, dogbytes (Hollister isn't that far!), and everyone else that I forgot- what are you doing Sunday?


I'll give this a little more time. Post here by Wednesday night. It'll be fun, or by God, liquor will make it fun.

Martiki, please put me down for two seats at the table, if available.

Pleasanton is a big ol' drive from San Mateo - if any other peninsula-based attendees (Mig? Fonduie?) would like to carpool with us or even provide the wheels, that could be fun. If so, we could depart from my place in case you wanna check out the Lanai tiki in its new home. I am

Thanks for thinking of me, Martiki, but I sadly can't make it that day. Maybe we can have a more centralized event (meaning: in the City) in the near future? Who knows, maybe even the mysterious Hanford will even show up and I can return his Pineapple-God Tiki!
