Happy National Rum Day

‘Yesternight. I drank much rum. Suffice to say. it was much fun.’

Trader Vic’s Emeryville is excited to kick off our new Rum Program, and we thought August 16th, National Rum Day, was the perfect time to do it! Come on in and try our selection of over 40 different rums from around the globe. We’ve broken down this large selection of rum into 10 different tasting flights! Get a special Rum Card from your server and we’ll stamp off which flights you’ve tested. Once you’ve tested all 10, get your very own Rum Keg to keep!

Señor Pico & Trader Vic’s in May

We put Señor Pico & the Trader in a room together with a few Pinky Gonzalez cocktails and asked for some recipes. A few drinks later (because really what kind of dirty stinker keeps count?!) they decided for the month of May to offer you specialities from both restaurants, Señor Pico & Trader Vic’s! Ole! Señor Pico is a Tex-Mexican & Early Californian restaurant concept created by Trader Vic in 1964 located in Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco.
