CABLE GUY: Don’t know what to wear to Trevor Traina’s Seventies TV-themed birthday bash in San Francisco? Then the 34-page “TT Guide” party invitation he has sent out, complete with pages of vintage TV listings and even a Tab ad, should provide inspiration. Get ready for plenty of J.J.’s screaming “Dyn-O-mite!” and Jeannies in pink harem pants.
“I was thinking the summer of love, but that has been so done,” says Traina, who has called in San Francisco’s favorite party planner, Paul Price, to set the mood. “It’s depressing turning 35, so I had to do something about it.”

Though Traina is keeping his own costume a secret, the night should be a wild one, with a dance floor à la “Saturday Night Fever,” a recreation of a “Love Boat” set and, of course, Tab on tap at all the bars.
“I just invited Don Johnson, who’s planning to come,” Traina reported. “I said, ‘I know you’re Eighties, but you have to think Seventies for the night.’”
