Winthorpe & Valentine in The Westin - Anyone Else Catch the Trading Places Reference?

Philly Ray | Mar 26, 2012 07:16 PM

It has been years since I have seen it, but HBO has been running Trading Places this month. As I was watching it, I remembered the two main characters were named (Louis) Winthorpe and (Billy Ray) Valentine. Then I made the connection to the restaurant in The Westin Hotel. Apparently, they also offer a drink called a "Mortimer" which was the name of one of the Duke Brothers.

Just thought it was funny.
