Some sad news to report: The last Trader Vic’s in LA has closed after a legendary 62-year run. This was pretty much my favorite bar in Los Angeles and I celebrated several birthdays there. I also celebrated several of my friends’ birthdays there. And sometimes we simply went there to lounge by the pool and drink a Mai Tai (or six) in the sun.
