I believe I saw a new glass for sale in their showcase – one that shows support for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Just went to TVT the other night for cocktails and dinner (before heading out to the movies).
I saw that I was completely wrong about the glass I’d seen in their showcase (as quoted above).
The glass they actually have is similar to the Trader Vic’s Tokyo 40th Anniversary glass from 2014 – but in black instead of white.
Below are pictures of the 40th Anniversary glass. Just picture the artwork in black...
Also learned that Crab Rangoons will be part of TVT’s December brunch...! (My favorite of the rotating appetizers.)
And speaking of the brunch, TVT has a fantastic campaign going on right now where the prize for completion is a free brunch!
All you need to do is drink six different versions of the Mai Tai! (No, not all at once...unless you want to!)
That’s all there is to it. Drink one of each variety (while getting your “Mai Tai Club” card stamped each time), and you’re good to go!
These are the six drinks you need to have:
1. Trader Vic’s Mai Tai (And, yes, you can still get the stamp for this one when they’re only ¥1000 during happy hour.)
2. Mango Tai
3. Guava Mai Tai
4. Maui Mai Tai (I’m told this one is made with pineapple juice.)
5. Honi Honi
6. Menehune Juice
This is such a great campaign! A free brunch (worth about $50) for just drinking cocktails...

Thanks for the update. I got the London version of that glass and was planning (before I thought there was an Olympics glass) to get the Tokyo one while I was there. So I'm happy to see they still have it. Is it served with their Tokyo Sour (the London one is used with their London Sour).
We'll be at TV's a week from Tuesday!

We had a wonderful early Happy Hour on Tuesday. Got to TV's about 3:30 or so after a day of shopping in Shibuya and Nakano. We had drinks and an early dinner in the bar. I had the Tokyo Sour and my regular go to, the TV's Sling. My wife had a Mai Tai and my father-in-law had the Doctor something (once I unpack I can look at the menu). We also split the fried rice, which was great, and each had our own entree. My shrimp po-boy was wine except for some sort of cheesey sauce on it. My wife enjoyed her roast beef sandwich and my father-in-law liked his chicken chow mein. And the french fries were excellent.
I bought the Tokyo skyline glass to go with the London one I got on that trip. Interestingly, The Tokyo TV's had a nice display case with all the available mugs with prices listed. London had nothing like that. I also asked if I could take the drink menu as a souvenir and our server disappeared in the back and brought back one for each of us! So that was awesome and I need to send an email complimenting her on that.
We would absolutely go again on our next trip and try to hit the brunch. Next up though in 2019 is probably a road trip to Emeryville.
