Your story about Andy's Diner fits perfectly with what I saw. It's a real classic.

I'd be willing to consider the Islander, but I have to admit I prefer 'Ohana. My experiences there lately with the drinks & food have been pretty darned good, the only downside being the bad music; I was hopeful that the live music would take care of that. I've been kinda unimpressed so far with the Islander, but I haven't really given it a good try yet.

What would everyone else's preference be?

Huh-? A sign from the Tiki Gods? As I was typing this an ad for the Islander came on TV! And TV has the same initials as Trader Vics...Speaking of which: Yes, Miss 'Pea, I too dream of Vic's (and hang my head in sadness when walking past the Westin). But I wish we even had a decent downtown old Chinese restaurant that hasn't been modernized. Something swell like the China Doll in Everett or the Red Lotus in Auburn. Something with out mauve vinyl.

Actually they are stumbling distance from each other (5 or 6 blocks, I thinks). But for this set Ohana is probably the place to go. It's dark and cluttered with stuff and it has more of that olde timey Tiki feel. Their bar is swell looking, and if you sit at the very back it almost sort of kind of feels like being somewhere cool (like the Alibi). I'd guess most Centralites would find the Islander disappointing...It's sort of "Polynesian nice".

I like Miss 'Pea's idea as I won't be joining the party until 7-ishtic so I could completely miss the Ohana part! [evil laughter]
In all seriousness (well, mostly all seriousness, that's the best I can ever do) I propose that you gals in the Tiki Central Seattle Chapter Ladies Auxiliary finalize things then tell the rest of us where to be and when and how big to smile.

Puamana, Selector Lopaka & I went to the Islander for dinner on Saturday, and while it's nice & all, we all agreed that we like 'Ohana better -- it's just more cluttered & tiki. The Islander has a much more clean, modern Hawaii feel to it (it does have a few tikis, though, and it's worth checking out for those of you who haven't already). We like the food & drinks better at 'Ohana, too.

Of course, it feels a bit like splitting hairs -- neither of them holds a candle to places like The Alibi. It'll have to happen after I'm gone, but I think all the Seattlites should arrange a one-day road trip to The Alibi! I bet you could talk mrtikibar & TikiMaxton into showing off their kick-ass home bars, too. But I digress...

How does 6pm at 'Ohana sound?

'Ohana on Wednesday, October 29 sounds good to me.
Although I am sad that you are leaving. Since meeting last Spring in San Francisco we only had the one chance to hang out. It was great meeting up with you and your friends that night.
Well we'll have to make this a night out to remember. I'll see you at Ohana's.

Keen! We're going to have a pretty darned good group! Keigs, would you be able to make it down for a night on the town? How about the Vancouver contingent??

woofmutt: I think that puamana & Selector Lopaka found an old-time Chinese restaurant in the Int'l District, but it's not totally open? I don't remember the details of their story, maybe puamana can elaborate. If you can't bear the thought of hanging out with us at 'Ohana, I can call you when we're headed over to the Islander so you can meet up with us there. It probably won't be until after dinner, though.

I think I know of that restaurant in China Town. It's been closed for years (with some sort of warning from the city slapped on it...Maybe toxic MSG levels?). I've wondered if it's time capsule pefect inside.*

Anyways, I hope to meet at Ohana to party hardy with reggae music and Jello shots...Plus I think Wednesdays they have the wet t-shirt contest, so you ladies dress appropriately (I hear they spray you down with beer!).


*Speaking of old Chinese places...Has anyone been to Perry Ko's South China on Beacon Hill? A swell exterior, I've never made it inside and learned recently it's closing at the end of the month (I bus, otherwise I'd pop up there and look around).

I am 100% sure I won't be participating in this contest, but I will be fully supportive of anyone who wants to partake in this activity--this includes Woofmutt and Gramps!
