I hope their insurance didn't require them to waive water intrusion claims as a basis for renewal of the policy.

Maybe they can skip the concrete and just use sand and keep the door open (mold prevention) for the alfresco feeling.

Me too. I hope they thought of that.

Aw, I'm sure they know better than to redecorate... I'm sure it'll take some time to clean up after all these repairs, lots of concrete dust in the air that's settled all over... it's probably going to be two straight weeks of swiffering.

I'm sure that having all the concrete dug up made quite a mess, and Mike & Mike are probably very picky as to how it is cleaned up. The Los Angeles Health Department's website shows that Tiki-Ti has the highest grading that they can give (100 points!). Maintaining that status should be no surprise considering the high quality of service and high quality of drinks that they make.

In addition, they have probably taken this opportunity to add their "vacation time" with the temporary closing. Their next vacation closure would be coming up soon anyway (last year they took their vacations in April, July, November & Christmas), so it's possible that they didn't want to close for repairs, and then close again shortly after for vacation.

Just my 2 coconuts worth.
