A couple of my Dad's cousins were in town this past weekend, and while declaming my love for Trader Vic's cocktails My Uncle Joe mentioned that there used to be one in Orange County, "Next to John Wayne Airport" he said. I asked a few questions & found out he believes it was a real Trader Vic's and not attached to a Hilton Hotel or the Airport, he didn't remember much else.

Does anyone know about there having been a Trader Vic's in Santa Ana in the '60s? Or was he just confused & was thinking of the Kono Hawaii?
