Yes, friends, it's tiki time!

I just got an email from the newly-relocated Tiki Terrace. They've moved to what I've been told is a bigger, cooler space at 1591 Lee Street, Des Plaines. The place is run by three brothers who are all good guys, and they have a real love for all things tiki.

Anyway, their grand opening in the new digs is Wednesday, June 11. Here's what I got from the email:

Wed, June 11, The Official Tiki Terrace Grand Opening! Make sure to stop by on our Grand Opening! We are giving away 100 tiki mugs, raffleling the official Grand Opening-Hand-Carved tiki by the Zuziak brothers, offering a $3.00 Mai Tai all day, featuring music and dance entertainment by the Barefoot Hawaiian, and more! Its a once-in-a-lifetime Tiki Terrace event and you are invited!
MizBubs and I will be there around 7:30. We look forward to having a couple drinks with you. Seriously, short of a dollar a gallon drop in gasoline prices, or shooting off some fireworks, can you think of a better way to start your summer?

Here's a map:

Okay. Let me see what I can do. This is important.

Can we make plans to go again in July? I get home June 23rd.

I can't do a Wednesday, but I'm going to make it a point to get our asses there at some point this summer.

I'll be sure to give you two a heads up on that. I'd LOVE to hang with you guys again.

I honestly can't think of a better way to kick off summer, though I did love your mint julip bevvy the other night.

I wish I could go. I'm DYING to see this Tiki bar that you've written so much about.

Have a BLAST!

That was so fun when we met there at Christmas. Have one for me!

Illinois isn't THAT far away, and I do love me some tiki...
but alas, I work that night.

Have a mai tai for me. Or twelve.

I'm hoping my schedule will allow this luxury! Love to see you guys.
