Well......
In case anyone planned on showing up on the 5th I have to back out again. My wife has to go back to Seattle AGAIN and will be flying back that night. Doesn't look like we can make this happen before the end of the year. I WILL, however, be at Coconuts tomorrow night (the 28th) just fyi.

I have to go sleep off this turkey now.

I do not live in the Big D, but I often visit. Has anyone been to Ollie & Lei's Luau? http://www.guidelive.com/profile/357655

I've never even heard of this place...I'm thinking they must be fairly new. They're located at Mockingbird Station where there are a bunch of shops and restaurants. I was there last Friday after I left Coconuts and must have totally missed this place. Definitely worth checking out.

hello again! Seems that this season isn't good for anyone to do anything! Sorry I fell of the planet for a while, but I am a visual manager at a retail company and you know...tis the season! So maybe we just re-plan a shindig for the beginning of the year after all the holidaze are over??? I know I have multiple tiki's under my tree, yipeeeeee!!! Happy Holidays to all!
If you don't already own it, you should all run out and get Esquivel's holiday CD (or anything Esquivel for that matter)...its the ultimate for your space aged bachelor pad!

As long as we stick together and ALL wear bullet-proof vests and carry mace, we should be fine on lower greenville!!! Merry Christmas to all!

Count me in! I think December was a bad month for everybody in that people are usually pretty busy. When people are ready for a get together I will most definitely participate. Friday nights work best for me but I can be flexible.

Well, sadly another psuedo-tiki bar has kicked the tiki...
I was in the Big D last week and tried to visit Ollie and Lei's, but some bar called "Spike" (or something like that) has taken over the space. I was just a little too late because it had just closed two days before my attempt. Ah well...

In a related note, I tried to visit the former site of the Trader Vic's across the street in the old Mockingbird Hilton (now the Santa Fe Hotel) and the arshole behind the front desk wouldn't let us in. However, we could see in through the windows and it looks pretty tiki-philic. It isn't normally open but you can apparently rent it for events.
Not a big fan of Dallas, but for that I am jealous! Seattle just tears down old tiki bars for condos and builds new ones for the new yups moving in...

Damn!! I never did get there to check it out. Oh well, I guess there's still Coconuts (with their 10 tiki's behind the bar but no tiki drinks).

I'm interested. By the way, Ollie and Lei's was a complete ripoff. No tikis, No mugs, just some Shag pictures blown up and badly painted on the wall (without permission from Shag) and cheap Chinese paper lanterns. Good riddance. The Trader Vic's location is COMPLETELY intact except for the old twelve foot tall Tiki that was yanked out of the ground in the middle of the night by a fan. Everyone coveted that statue but the owners would never sell. Finally, someone stole it, then negotiated the price for not returning it. I wish I had thought of that. The inside is PERFECT.
My circle of friends have discussed renting Trader Vic's again.
