Just a couple weeks away! Be sure to put June 27th on your calendars for the second of a 5 part summer cocktail series from 320 Main. Doors open at 7pm and the bar will rock until 11pm, however, as some cocktails ran out with in two hours, I highly recommend getting there early. They will be stocking up and I'll be juicing even more fruit for the night! But, I still recommend getting in early so you get a chance to sample as many of the cocktails as you can.

This time its a nod to Tiki's legends... a cocktail flight of Don's famous recipes sampled head to head with Trader Vic's recipes. The QB Cooler and the Mai Tai... try them both and compare. The menu will consist half of Don's classics and half of Trader Vic's treasures... recipes and authenticity thanks to the Beachbum Berry archives and I can attest all fruit juices are hand squeezed that day (I personally did most of it last time) and syrups are either homemade or being provided by Trader Tiki. It's going to be a great night once again.

See you there!

Joby,
will there be a TV's Navy Grog?
that is my fave drink of theirs, and its totally different than the Don's Navy Grog.

I'll update with the official list ASAP. I believe the recipes though will be cocktails they each specifically invented to compete with the other. I'm not sure, though, I'll post when I know.

Thanks to everyone who came out last night! Although I am a purist and voted blindly for Don's recipes, Trader Vic was awarded the most votes in general and deemed the winner over all. I have to admit, though, that Mai Tai was badass! I am proud to say that I did order one of each and every cocktail and the two punches... an impressive feat indeed.

Cinerama Luau Punch

QB Cooler


Hope to see everyone next month!

Whoa! Where did the time go?! Next Tiki Night at 320 Main is THIS MONDAY, July 18!

This month, the cocktail exploration delves into Tiki's tropical cousins with a focus on the tropical cocktails of Cuba. Many of these cocktails have been lumped into 'Tiki' in many of the minds of bartenders and patrons, despite the fact they aren't exactly descended from the South Pacific traditions of the Don's and Vic's lineage. Many of these cocktails were made famous during Prohibition, before the birth of Tiki. Come try these cousins, the tropical Cuban (mostly) cocktails the way they were created originally.

Bacardi has agreed to sponsor this event and is providing the rum... however, there was one condition: we ONLY want the Bacardi 1909. Done!

Come try these classic Prohibition era tropical cocktails the way they were originally made, with the closest reproduction of the rum that made the Daiquiri famous!

Tiki Night #3 Tropical Drinks of Cuba

Mojito
Daiquiri
Hemingway Daiquiri
Pina Colada
El Presidente
Bacardi Cocktail
Mary Pickford

All drinks will be made with Bacardi 1909 and drink prices are $8.

Hot Dogs will be available and DJ Ken Caldretti will be spinning the tunes to get everyone in the Cuban mood.
