Well, I guess since Don the Beachcomber events and the OC Weekly posted that the the place is closing, I can finally say my part. First of all, I'm sorry for all of the cryptic depressing posts... this is one of the hardest things that I've had to go through... losing a restaurant... I know, it sounds insane, but 8 years of performing there, well over 100 shows, a commercial filming, Monday night meet ups with Art and friends, two Hula Girls' Burlesque shows, four Curse of the Tiki Halloween Variety Shows, the Hot Rod Luau with Agent Orange, two Tiki Highways, more New Years Eves than I can recall, and so many days and nights with friends at the Tiki Marketplace, Birthdays, graduations, and even some wakes... it's gut wrenching to lose.
But from its ashes, will rise Don the Beachcomber in another venue. It won't be mired in the weight of such an immense space or a landlord who is constantly trying to get them out. I've known about this fate since we 'saved' it the last time around. I knew it was coming. It doesn't make it any easier... but this weekend is a celebration! A celebration of all of the times that we spent under that roof together. I sincerely hope that you will join us this Friday night for a proper Hula Girls' send off to our absolute favorite place. A place that The Hula Girls have called home since our first show in Oct of 2010.
Oh, and for the gods' sake, don't steal anything, it's all moving on to another location.
This weekend is gonna be a fun one!
