Oakland: Home Of The MaiTai, Not The Drive-By

Will Viharo of Parkway Theater fame has a new effort to have the Mai Tai named the official drink of Oakland. So far he reportedly has At Large Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan on board.

Why? Because it's true! Vic Bergeron invented the original Mai Tai recipe at his Oakland restaurant (Trader Vic's, formerly Hinky Dink's) in 1944, as he plainly states here. Now it's a grassroots movement, spearheaded by Mano Thanos, co-owner of The Conga Lounge in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland (for which I do freelance PR, along with Forbidden Island of Alameda.)

Ok. I'm in support of this; why not?
