It’s happening! After being asked for almost a full year about when we were going to have another Tiki Night at 320 Main, I can say ON AUGUST 20th at 7pm!
What: Tiki Throwdown
When: Monday, August 20th 2012 @ 7pm PDT
Where: 320 Main, Seal Beach, CA
Who: You, me, and the Tiki Gods
Last year I managed to slip enough rum into Jason’s coffee to convince him that hosting a monthly Tiki Night at 320 Main for the entire summer was a great idea. Several months, many drinks, and probably about 15,000 gallons of fresh juice later we managed to mop the stickiness off of the floor finally sleep soundly in the knowledge that our busboys and barbacks would no longer want to kill us for making them work 15 hour days doing nothing but juicing citrus and pineapples and picking only perfect mint leaves and making ice blocks for punch.
This year we opted to hold off on turning our barstaff into murderous vengeance-seekers and put all the awesome into one big night.
On August 20th, Jason and I will be joined by the inimitable Kelly Merrell from Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar for a Tiki Throwdown! We’ll all be making drinks from five of the greatest Tiki icons of all time with concoctions from Don The Beachcomber, Trader Vic, Steve Crane, Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, and Martin Cate. Mood music will be provided, as usual, by the awesome Ken Caldretti while an array of hot dogs will be grilled up by 320’s amazing kitchen staff.
Tiki Drinks, punches, hot dogs, music, and prizes. What else could you possibly want to do on a Monday night?
