Ok, here's the scoop...

Some folks already know, for those of you who don't, Coalbe and I have been working with Suzy Fong of Chef Shangri-La to have a once a month event. This was going to be a free event called "An Evening in Shangri-La" to be held on the 3rd Saturday of each month, with Suzy paying for the bands and what not. She was going to have food and drink specials, along with a free rafflle each month. We were planning to showcase a variety of great entertainers from around the area as well.

Long story short, we wrote a letter to the Mayor of North Riverside, explained all of the above, and even invited him out to the first one which we were planning for September 20th. I received a phone call from him last night and the following is basicly what I was told. He said there is no entertainment allowed in North Riverside, but he makes exceptions for Suzy's special events only. He also said that she is more than welcome to come to village hall and talk to him about it. He also made it very, very clear that I don't have the right to ask for anything, 'cuz I don't hold the liquor license for Chef Shangri-La, what ever the hell that means. I tried to explain that we're just trying to bring in some more business for the restaurant, during these tough times. In all honestly I don't think the Village gives a flying shit if the Chef shuts the doors tomorrow. I'm sure they'd like to see something else occupying that corner anyway.

Suzy is 70 years old, but does not want to retire, she likes running the restaurant. Her family doesn't help out any more because they do want her to retire. The problem is the same for her as it is everywhere right now, because of the economy, business is way down from a year ago. Chef Shangri-La has been around for just over 32 years, and Suzy would run for another 30 if she had her way.

Even though we can't have monthly entertainment, we're still going to have sort of a "Meet 'n Eat" on the 3rd Saturday each month with dinner and drink specials as well as some great FREE raffle prizes that have been donated, like Cocktail Preacher CDs, Go Tsunami T-shirt, Exotica Posters, Chef T-shirt, possibly an occasional tiki necklace or mug.

We did not have a lot of time after the bomb the mayor laid on us, but we did manage to pull off the first one this past Saturday. We had a nice turnout and we'd like to thank everyone who made it out with such short notice. We'd like to get some more folks out for October, so mark your calendar for 10/18/08, and please come join us for "An Evening in Shangri-La" !

This is one of the last remaining "old school" Tiki establishments left in the Chicagoland area..............

.............so stop in have dinner and/or a drink when your in the neighborhood, and tell your friends to do the same!

Mahalo,

Dave & Coalbe

Aloha,
With the 18th being a little less than two weeks away, nows the time to make your reservations.
We're going to meet in the bar at 7pm and have a dinner reservation for 7:30. If anyone wants to join our table you are more than welcome, just let us know and we'll save a seat.
The free raffle will be held between 8pm & 8:30, and like we mentioned in the earlier post, there's been some pretty cool stuff donated. All of you folks out there in the Chi-town vicinity, should try and make it out, it will be a great time.
Also, every year in the neighborhood right up the street from the Chef, they have an unbelievable Halloween walk of terror. It goes for 2 blocks and is really worth the stop. According to the website, it runs from the 24th through the 31st, but they usually set it up a week in advance. It would defintely be something cool to check out after dinner!
Mahalo,
Dave & Coalbe
PS. If everything goes according to plan, Lake Tiki will be bringing down some goodies in November(15th). Get some holiday shopping done while you enjoy dinner and a drink! :thumbsup:

Thanks Dave, and I'm still planning on bringing things down then! I'll also make an announcement on the other channel as we had a lot of TC people come down too at the Anniversary.

I'm hoping to get a little something done as a raffle donation this month, I'll tell you when to watch the mailbox!

Thanks again for keeping the ball rolling on fun tiki events!

Great raffle prizes! It was fun last month to see the surprised look on the dinners faces when they won. People who thought they were just out for a nice dinner and drinks ended up being able to go home with a really nice raffle prize.
