All you travelers or wannabe travelers come out to celebrate happy hour at a Christmas party!
Trader Vic's Lounge has so much ambiance that you'd think you were in Hawaii. With the Hawaiian music playing and San Francisco skyline in the background, what else can you want unless you were transported to Maui?
There's mouthwatering appetizers for 1/2 price from 4 to 6 p.m. and discounts on drinks.
Some of the appetizers are crab rangoon, oysters on the half shell, california roll and hawaiian ahi roll.
We've been here before and had a fantastic time. They do serve up some great Mai Tais and here's a bit of history on that drink:
It was purportedly invented at the Trader Vic's restaurant in Oakland, California in 1944. Trader Vic's rival, Don the Beachcomber, claimed to have created it in 1933 at his then-new bar named for himself (later a famous restaurant) in Hollywood. Don the Beachcomber's recipe is more complex than that of Vic's and tastes quite different.
The Mai Tai became such a popular cocktail in the 1950s and 1960s that virtually every restaurant, particularly tiki-themed restaurants or bars, served them. The Mai Tai was also prominently featured in the popular Elvis Presley film Blue Hawaii.
Need a ride, I can pick you up if you're on my way from the Delta.
