Sunday: Trader Vic's Hosts Vintage Vic's Dinner

Trader Vic's is taking pride in its decades-long history and throwing a throwback "Vintage Vic's" dinner party this Sunday -- and I don't know why they haven't done this sooner. Let's do the time warp!

Think about it -- how many restaurants have food and drink archives going back 77 years? Chef Justin Pfeilsticker and the folks at the Hotel Valley Ho are brilliant to capitalize on this. Expect a multi-course spread with classics from over the years.

Who knows? Maybe dinner guests will show up in suitable vintage duds -- wouldn't that be smashing? I have just the right '60s aloha dress I'd wear to this . . . 

The reception starts at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 20, and it's $50 per person. Call 480-421-7799 for a reservation.
