December 23rd in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1938, Vivian Laird made sure that Seal Beachers knew that they didn’t have to stay home on Christmas because they had dining and entertainment options with this ad in the Santa Ana Register.  At her South Seas restaurant you could get a complete Christmas turkey dinner for 90 cents, but why bother? For a dime more, the Garden of Allah in Seal Beach offered that same complete Christmas turkey dinner plus “two snappy bands for dancing” and “music played the way you like it!”
