How big is the former Trader Vics-Dallas space anyway? How many Tikiheads could fit in there?

twelve foot tall Tiki that was yanked out of the ground in the middle of the night by a fan.

My circle of friends have discussed renting Trader Vic's again.

Trader Vic's will hold several hundred. There are several rooms and a large dance? floor in the middle. At "Night of the Tiki", Myriah came to town to Hula and there was a Hawaiian fashion show and fire eating demonstration. My friend Jason charged a cover that covered the cost of the room. I'll ask him the rental fee and let you know.
Any pictures of the Tiki in his new home? I miss him.

I suppose it would if they have a "Hula Night."

How about Friday, Jan. 30th? Coconuts?

Or, Tiki-phallic.

But that's redundant.

"Generation Ecch", THAT Jason Cohen?

Cheez, we go way back too! This little world is too small.

Do count me in for a Dallas thing. Jan. 30 is Superbowl weekend, and getting out of Football Hell Town might be just what the doctor ordered - IF I can get out of town!!

The old Trader Vics IS intact. We were lucky enough to be let in, and took a ton of pictures! Renting it out? That's a cool $2500 a night ($500 is a deposit). That includes waiters and bartenders, NOT your food & booze. They said it was MUCH cooler in years past before everything started getting ripped-off...hence the $500 deposit.

I talked to Jason tonight about the old Trader Vics.
he said he's in real good with the owner, so if he ever wants to rent it out he's the man with the plan. BUT it's pretty exspensive. He seemed interested in joining us (possibly) for drinks at coconuts one night, it depends if he has to watch the kiddo or not. And yes the same Jason Cohen of "Generation Ecchs", He was running Forbidden Books and the Forbidden Art gallery, plus a Jack-a-lopes lodge, but sold or closed them down. Didn't really ask about Why the books tore, but after Sept. 11th the art community was hit hard.

but we'll see about Trader Vics, hopefully the person that is in charge of it will eventually open it up.

FYI:
I'm not amember of IOOF but have been described as odd.
Jason sold the bookstore to finance the art gallery. He's the one who talked me into buying the first Shag painting (The Suffering Bastard) in Dallas. My wife threatened to divorce me over the price at the time but when I showed her some recent Ebay prices, she .
Is that a $500 deposit for all you can carry?
