With Independence Day looming, Trader Vic‘s decided it was the opportune time to hold a 4th of July themed event for bloggers and influential social media figures to sample their sumptuous new American style menu. Now, we know what your thinking: an American themed night? It was probably an evening of sloppy burgers and dogs, both of the hot and corn kind, but you couldn’t be further from the truth!

The new menu boasts greats such as the devilishly smokey BBQ ribs, delicate monkfish enveloped in Parma ham and, for the vegetarians among you, a symphony of char grilled vegetables accompanied by that famous crowd favourite: sweet potato mash. If you’re wondering whether such an array of delights can taste as delicious as it sounds then check out the latest review from Foodie Force here. With over 15 bloggers attending the event, including A Little Lusciousness and LDNISTAit was an evening to remember as the Mai Tais and conversation flowed!
