Today, Trader Vic's continues the tradition and still uses the Chinese Wood-fired Ovens featuring dishes from the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Asia, and Japan. And, as we all know, Trader Vic’s claims to be home to the original Mai Tai. Here's what’s on the lounge menu: Tidbits & Pupus Cosmo Tidbits – Trader Vic’s original pupu platter.A sampling of crispy prawns, char siu pork, crab rangoon & BBQ ribs for two (featured here) BBQ Spare Ribs – Sugar cured & dipped in our signature BBQ glaze.

Emeryville Trail Guide Featured Art – Maria SantoStefano

Cover art: Emeryville Marina No. 1, 11”x14”, oil on canvas “Plein air painting in the Bay Area captured my interest upon my very first classes with Anne Marie Glover and her mother, the late great landscape painter, Pam Glover. They introduced me not only to the joy of painting outdoors, but the rich legacy of East Bay painters such as The Outsiders, Lundy and Louis Siegriest and the Society of Six. With every painting, I try to find that sweet spot where the beauty of the scene meets the lush dimensional qualities of the oil paint itself.” –Maria SantoStefano
