Happy Birthday Vic!

Pages: 1 7 replies

Let's all wish Trader Vic a big happy birthday. He reportedly invented the first mai tai and had a hell of a tiki restaurant chain. Let's not let that go to waste today. See all you So. Cal TCers at the Beverly Hills Trader Vics tonight. Vic would have wanted it that way.

Happy Birthday to Trader Vic!

Thanks for inventing the Mai Tai, making great food, being an awesome host and for decorating your bars with Tikis for 66 years!


Those who want to wish Vic a happy birthday in person can find him here:

Mountain View Cemetery, 5000 Piedmont Ave., Oakland, CA, main mausoleum, Garden Terrace (lower level near the office), Crypt 357, Tier 3.


I'll be at Vic's final resting place on my lunch hour today, about two hours from now....

Happy birthday, Sir Vic...Nobody did it better...or ever will :)

Your spirit is the spirit in our spirits.
Happy 100th Birthday you old suffering bastard!

And let's not forget that he made Tiki truly international.

We toast Vic from across the salty seas.
