Trader Vics

The boys spent the night with my parents on Saturday night. Kevin and I decided to go to Trader Vics in Emeryville.
Trader Vics is the home of the Mai Tai, but I had Menehune Juice. Kevin had a Mai Tai.
I had macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi. YUM. It was so yummy.
They have wood burning fireplaces. Kevin's burger was made here.
Trader Vics decor. Cool tikis.
I found the ceiling particularly interesting.
Plus this tiki candle holder was super cool too.
Palm trees outside of the restaurant.
Kevin outside of the restaurant. Trader Vics has a pretty cool view of the marina there in Emeryville. It's on a little peninsula.
The marina, and fog.

That's the Bay Bridge. The city is beyond that, but it was rather foggy. If you look closely, you can see a construction crane sticking up-that's the work on the new bridge. It's been a long time coming-we've needed that bridge since the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989! Part of the bridge fell during the quake. It's not really earthquake friendly. We need a new one.

We had a great dinner. We sure do love that Polynesian atmosphere.
