Say goodbye to Trader Vic's

June 6th, 2009

Raise your mai tais in memory of Trader Vic's inside the Miracle Mile Shops.

  • A flash knockout, questionable reffing decisions and a new champ: UFC 98 was anything but boring.

  • Chocolate and peanut butter aren't the only things that taste great in tandem. How about badass b-boys Super Cr3w and locally-designed label Billionaire Mafia?

  • Company buys rights to add Rogue name to the concert venue’s logo.

  • The Hard Rock wants to hook you up with the stars and stripes, but only if you're old enough to play some blackjack on the way out.

  • Denny’s isn’t just marketing to the blue-haired breakfast set anymore. Some absolute genius at corporate finally understands the true demographic that frequents its establishment before the sun comes up: drunks and stoners.

  • Beloved professor Pablo Medina offers advice to a city at a cultural crossroads then bids adieu.

  • You don’t need to head Downtown on First Fridays to find art in the Valley. Aspiring artist “Jak B.” spends hours with his sketchbook at one Green Valley Starbucks, finding inspiration in those around him and trading drawings for coffee.

  • The Weekly took home top honors at the annual EPpy awards today in New Orleans.

  • Who wants some Kentucky UNfried Chicken? ‘Cause Oprah’s buying! Print out your coupon today.

  • Of all the visually arresting images that paraded down 4th Street from Coolidge Avenue to Ogden Avenue for the 11th annual Las Vegas Pride Parade, a pair of loving lesbians may be the hardest to forget.

  • Just a few months after Danny Gans moved to a new residency at the Encore Theater in February, the entertainer has reportedly died in his sleep.

  • The Roots founder/drummer and Tonight Show bandleader brings his Soul Train-inspired dance party to the Linq this weekend.

  • Unlike its subject, who performed feats that people remembered their whole lives, the History Channel program is entirely forgettable.

  • The Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz directed flick is a ramshackle travelogue about two senior citizens taking a vacation to Iceland.

  • Do you remember when Henderson got its own Kwik-E-Mart? We do.

  • Bonus points for wearing a Milo Goes to College T-shirt.

  • Expect a zombie horde, clown army and possibly an epic helicopter entrance (pending FAA approval, of course).

  • “He was brutal when he had to be and beneficent when the opportunity arose."

  • Brosnan isn't James Bond, but the comparisons are unavoidable.

  • A stoner comedy is the last thing you would expect from the creator of Mad Men.

  • It's like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory—with clothes.

  • Boise's indie veterans headline the Bunkhouse's reopening bash on August 25.

  • Do you know what phase of your cycle it is, Capricorn?

  • Your Face in Mine explores rebooting your genetic history.

  • Cut it out! Uncle Joey talks the recent Full House reunion, clean comedy in Vegas and more.

  • Sexy, vintage and alluring, the 40-by-60-inch billboard collages combine fashion illustrations (from old Harper’s Bazaar magazines) and enhanced photographs of models, as well as other printed imagery.

  • With production from Alex Rose of Minus the Bear, the EP showcases the group's robust indie-folk.

  • If the band's goal was to leave everyone confused, they succeeded.

  • The bells are about to ring for you, Libra.
