|Post subject:||HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIC BERGERON|
Foul-mouthed Tiki legend Victor Bergeron was born this day in 1902, the day after his friend Lucius Beebe. Trader Vic, as he became known, was born not on a South Pacific island as he occasionally claimed, but in downtown San Francisco. His business rival Donn Beach (Don the Beachcomber) may, in fact, have invented Tiki, inspired by his wanderings in the exotic South Seas - but it was Vic who took Donn Beach's concept to a new and global level, spawning a style of drink and decor that still catches eyes and palates today.
Let's remember the man today with what is undisputedly one of his own creations, a Gun Club Punch No. 1.
