Mai Tai Rao-Ae Celebration and 75th Anniversary Toast

This was the toast to Trader Vic and the Mai Tai on the 75th anniversary of its invention in 1944 in Oakland.

The footage starts with Vic’s granddaughter Eve Bergeron handing the mic over to Michael Thanos. Thanos was the owner of the Conga Lounge, a now defunct tiki bar in Oakland, and led a group to petition the City of Oakland to name the Mai Tai the official cocktail of the city. He is presently the owner of Forbidden Island in Alameda.
