I just caught a segment of a show called Celebrity Restaurants on the Food Network and they covered the Beverly Hills Trader Vic's because... and I did not know this...


Merv Griffin OWNS it!

I always thought Merv was the hippest talk show host ever and this confirms it.

Did you ever read that Milk and Cheese comic where they're running around yelling "MERV GRIFFIN! MERV GRIFFIN!!" over and over? :lol:

I was just about to post this. Boy, the menu in Beverly Hills sure looks a lot better than Emeryville's, doesn't it? They showed a lot of the interior, and had the host of the show sitting surrounded by a scorpion bowl a fog cutter and a bahia. She looked like she was set to get bent. I don't know how Vic's relationship in hotels works. Is Merv a franchisee? Anyway, a nice little blurb.

Oh, that reminds me... Better than yelling Merv Griffin (and topical cause he's on death's door) was a game we used to play as kids - someone would yell GORDON LIGHTFOOT! And you would have to lift your foot in the air (as if it was a LIGHT FOOT) and stand on one leg until the person yelled GORDON DOWNFOOT!!!!

This as SFA to do with tiki, sorry!
