Allegedly Trader Vic’s closed a few months ago to repair damage from a flood. Hmm. We heard rumblings they were not just closing they gassing Vic’s and changing concepts. I don’t have official confirmation, but Kellyn, our gal on the street, okay in the Hotel Palomar, just walked inside the construction site and asked a few questions. An official looking dude showed her the new plans which call for pool and ping pong tables. But here’s the best part—he gave her a link to this website. Trader Vic’s is selling their swag– glasses, bar items, plates, fixtures–online. Scorpion glasses for me!
UPDATE: Well, there was a website selling TV stuff, but they’ve taken it down.
