John Valencia has work going around the clock to be ready for the LA Trader Vic's grand opening next month.
The website has a countdown clock that gives you the opening to the second.
Can't wait to see what John, Sven and Danny have come up with.

Some of the segments in this piece have the word "PALATAVAKE" below what looks to me like an image of a headdress. Any idea what this references? I did some searching on the web and found that it has a Tongan connection; maybe a name.
