had a Navy Grog, tasted great, but they used 1 oz. light 1 oz. gold, and 1 oz dark rum. Isn't it supposed to be 3 oz. dark rum? hmmmmmmm???



Not exactly. Straight from the horse's mouth... (geez, I can't believe I remember this post almost 4 years later)

The restauant recipe is juice from 1/2 lime, 3/4 oz grapefruit, dash simple syrup, 1/4-1/3 oz rum grog concentrate, and then the rum. This is where some of the locations differ. Emeryville uses 1 oz silver, 1 oz gold, 1 oz dark- all Trader Vic's brand. SF uses 1 oz gold, 1 oz dark and 1/2-3/4 oz Lemon Hart 151.

About a block North I found plenty of free parking after 8pm. The area is well patroled by these cops on people movers. Close to some other cool areas like Bunker Hill, Historic District and the Fashion District. Next time I'll check out the Metro station and see how close it is.
























I asked for the Phil Grog, they made one for me last night in a Gun Club mug. (This is not one of their drinks BTW, Bigbro suggested it once in a thread & I thought it was a good idea) Flaming Cho Chu and Duck Tacos were killer too!
Uh,..... Bad choice of words I mean they were great!

"I saw a weirdo drinking a Navy Grog at Trader Vic's and his hair was F#$% Up. AAA Ohhhh Weirdo of Beverly Hills

Please tell me they pull those absolutely gorgeous tikis in at night. I don't care how well they're bolted down, if they stay outside, someone will find a way to steal them. Both outdoor tiki ashtrays were recently stolen from the front entrance of the Mai-Kai, including a vintage original and a great replica cast by Wplugger.

LA Live does have excellent security and there is the "normal" LA Live guests (whatever amount that is as all LA Live places are relatively brand new), but Laker season will be over in about 2 1/2 more series and I believe the Avengers have been placed on hold this season, so there maybe not so much need for security until the Kings their season.

I remember the Tikis in front of the Royal Hawaiian in Laguna Beach stayed there, however, with 1 exception which seemed to have been sawed from between the metal supports.

Yeah, I don't think we have to worry about someone taking Danny's Tiki. They are bolted to the ground and security would be on someone in a hot second. The area is well patrolled from what I've observed.
LA seems to want their own Times square and this is it.

When to TV, but missed ya'll. We got there early and were out pretty early, but not before downing TV Grog, Mai Tai (from scratch)...and a couple of other drinks...hic up.

It was nice being greeted by Danny's Tikis.....

I've got to figure out how to get out of work early....

This L.A. Times article was pointed out on one of the other LATV threads, but I thought I'd post the link here as well...

http://www.latimes.com/theguide/bars-and-clubs/la-et-night1-2009may01,0,5405092.story

(You'll have to cut & paste the link in a new browser window as the URL is probably too long to hyperlink)

And here are the nice accompanying pics, just to save you time:















Cheers & Mahalos
