Yeah- sorry it's a bit of a desert here in Denver tiki wise- most of the stuff happening is created by people on this list, and there's nothing I know of this or next weekend. I'm having my peepsbq on the 8th if that's of interest and my basement tiki bar will be open! Open invite to you all! http://peepsbq.com/ http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=166488580073464

Here's a list of tiki and cocktail stuff in Denver I posed in the past:
Not much Tiki beyond a few Chinese places that serve exotic drinks in the mugs- The best decor, drinks and food is at Twin Dragon- http://www.twindragonrestaurant.com/- but we've got a few great craft cocktail places poppin up. .

The Cruise Room is a vintage dream serving okay vintage coctails with mostly fresh juices. Their cocktail menu is very fru-fru, but you can skip it and just have them make you any cocktail you can think of http://www.theoxfordhotel.com/dining/cruise-room.php. They're attached to a McCormick's restaurant, with great seafood.

South Broadway has some great vintage clothes and bookstores, plus the amazing Mayan Theatre and Beatrice and Woodsley's http://www.beatriceandwoodsley.com/(more great coctails, incredible design, local and super interesting/delicious food and their happy hour features half price drinks). They have a sister bar downtown called Double Daughters, not far from the cruise room that's worth a look http://doubledaughters.com/

Root Down http://www.rootdowndenver.com/in Denver's Highland neighborhood and Colt and Grey http://www.coltandgray.com/on the west side of downtown both have incredible food, and amazing craft cocktails.

Also in the highlands A Cote, a quaint french absinthe bar with a full shelf of different absinthes. They have wonderful cocktails and light french fare- and next door is Z cuisine, a full (and terrific) french restaurant. http://www.zcuisineonline.com/

There's some really cool mid-century modern neighborhoods. They're outside of central Denver, but well worth the taxi fare http://www.milehimodern.com/modernTour.php

Also on west Colfax is one of my favorite places, Casa Bonita- a fake Mexican wonderland/restaurant. The food's not great (they make it palatable to kids, so lots of velveeta) but the 2 story waterfall, volcanic rocks, silly shows and mariachi make the 8 bucks (for dinner, or you can just pay that entry fee) well worth it. They do make a decent if candy-like Pina Colada. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casa_Bonita

Denver Tiki Tribe:

Please join us for our 8th Annual Tiki Fest (Cha-Cha-Cha)!



Yeah, we kinda ripped off this year's Tiki Oasis idea, except we want to celebrate all things Latin, not just Mexico.
And what goes better with a delicious tiki drink than some great Mambo?

Visit the website for more deets and to RSVP.
Hula Moon will be bartending, of course.

http://www.tiki-fest.com

Hope to see you there!

Sounds fun... count me and the missus in.

Here's some other Denver stuff for Tiki Slob not touched on yet:

8 Rivers near 15th and Blake: Not tiki at all no way no how, BUT, the finest rum collection in town. They do rum flights and have some decent hand-made cocktails. Sadly, and strangely, no Mai-Tai, though.

Green Russell: I haven't been there yet, but I'm told it's THE place for craft cocktails in town at the moment. It's "hidden" behind a bakery, speakeasy style.

Euclid Hall: Excellent cocktail list, wonderful small plate foods (3 kinds of "gourmet" poutine), and a pretty killer little beer list.

Which... brings me to beer... you're in Colorado, so go with the flow and shoot for what we do best.

You'll be in Boulder, so make sure you get to Avery Brewing's tasting room. You can even take the bus from downtown to avoid those pesky driving issues when visiting such a place. They'll have mindblowing stuff on tap that they don't bottle, and they do tours as well.

In Denver... well, hell... in Denver just throw a bottle cap and you'll hit a great beer place.
•Great Divide at 22nd and Arapahoe is pretty damn fantastic. Their tasting room is pretty small, so avoid it at rush hour.
•Falling Rock near 20th and Blake is world class, with something like 64 taps of beers from all over the world, and then more in bottles in the cooler.
•Freshcraft near 15th and Blake is making a lot of waves with their excellent Colorado-centric tap selection and killer food.
•Rackhouse on Kalamath near Alameda has a treasure trove of Colorado beers, and has an excellent whiskey selection, including the euphoric Stranahans CO Whiskey that's distilled and bottled in the back.
•Hops & Pie is a great little taproom/pizza place on Tennyson that carries California and Colorado beers on tap and makes a fantastic pizza.
•Cheeky Monk on Colfax has mostly Belgian ales on tap... easily the finest selection I've seen other than Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena. Their burger is great, and they have several styles of mussels, as well.

Anyways, there really is no tiki here... but there're plenty of other excellent options for hanging out and hoisting a few.

OKEHHHHY. Now we're talkin'. Much mahalos to burleyque for that awesome list of Denver things to do. I am not a facebook person but many things are leading to my joining just to see the things that so many folks are always saying to go there for. I will think about the 8th and get back to you on that. Thanks for that. It turns out as I have asked around here in Boulder and on a couple of car forums over the last week that I will be pretty busy on the 7th. In Golden there is a cruise night on the 7th...meaning cars and bikes and stuff...I am for sure going to that being the Kustom Kar guy that I am. But before that, I hear there is a huge antique mall called the Brass Armadillo (?).

Mr. Dale...thanks for chiming in.

CucamongaChango...Thank you for that supplement to burleyque's dissertation. I feel like I now have a savory menu from which to choose some delectable places to keep me occupied. Yes...I have been coming to Boulder for 18 months almost every week and have frequented Avery quite often since I have been working at Ball Aerospace during those months. I have been to New Belgium and Odels too...gotta love that 90 Schilling.

You guys have really helped a guy out. Over the past months coming to Boulder I have been to the Denver Roller Dolls Championship bout at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield. Toured multiple breweries, gotten tattooed here in town, met some fantastic locals that have turned me on to antique shops, places to drive (peak-to-peak drive from Nederlans both north and south to Black Hawk), Estes Park, cruise nights in Golden and now some great places to see in Denver. I even got a chance to play the drums with a fantastic guitar player (Kieth Spargo) and his buddies from a death metal band called Silencer. I also heard that there was some kind of Frank Sinatra martini place on a walk street mall kind of place in Denver too. Where might that be?
Mahalo hana hoe!

Hi again everyone!

Hula Moon will be serving up some fresh, delicious mocktails and gourmet ice pops
at the Horseshoe Market this Saturday, 9 am - 4 pm. We're also going to have a little
tiki lounge set up and will be playing some tasty tunes.

AND, Food Network is going to be there from noon - 4 pm, filming for their hit
TV show "The Great Food Truck Race!" Exciting!

Attached is a flyer for your informational perusal. Hope you all can
come down and throw back a couple Mai Tai mocktails.

Mahalo!

Just wanted to send out a big thank you to the cats who showed up to the Hula Moon tent at the Horseshoe Market last weekend. You guys rock!!

It was truly a great day - we did really well. The tiki gods were smiling upon us.
