Okay, time for an easy tiki expedition:

Gather 7pm on Thursday, Sept. 27 at
Zombie Hut
273 Smith St
Brooklyn, NY 11231
Phone: (718) 875-3433
Cross Street: Degraw Street
Directions: F; G at Bergen St
This bar is Cash Only

Citysearch Review:

Born in a tiny lounge a few doors down, this ever-popular tiki bar grew into its current wide, deep and high-ceilinged space. Colorful fish swim in a giant tank, and an attractive staff stirs up potent frozen drinks, mai tais, and shareable scorpion bowls, served aflame with a few extra-long fluorescent straws. In the cozy back room, guests cuddle on couches, a tropical mural brightens the walls, and a wood-burning fireplace keeps the air balmy year-round.

The house specialty is the Frozen Zombie, an alcoholic Slurpee-like beverage that comes with a shot of 151 in its neon straw--so beware of the first sip! They also serve a Scorpion Bowl for 4 people.
Get $1 off cocktails from 5pm to 7pm on week nights

We have never been but have been wanting to check it out. It would be more fun with you all!
Aloha, Kiki and David

CaptainQuad is going to try to make this. I'm not sure whether or not I'll be able to, but hopefully he can get over there after work. We've been there once and enjoyed it. The first sip of the zombie is VERY boozy!

Kiki = thanks for finding new things for the group to do! I think Nicole and I can make it. We have also never been to the Hut but have been wanting to go for a long time. Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

D'OH! I need to start reading these things a little more carefully! I thought it was tomorrow night, even though Kiki put the date right in the subject line. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it after all. I'll miss seeing you!

Thanks for posting this Kiki. I have walked past the Zombie Hut twice now but it was during the day and they weren't open. I really want to go. Count us in. We just moved to Brooklyn a month ago and we are looking forward to meeting the NY Tiki Ohana. Vanessa and Brian.

I was on the fence with this one because I didn't want to drive and be tempted by their glorious drinks. But last night I was t-boned by a pick-up truck, and that kind of made my decision for me. All I have now is a bike, and there is no way I'm going to ride it into Brooklyn to drink rum drinks. I'll look forward to the next gathering.

Raf - sorry to hear about the accident and I hope the car was the only one damaged.

Hopefully we will see you at future gatherings.

Joe

John -- while reading your post I assumed you got hit while on your new Triumph. So, strange as it may sound, I was very relieved that you had a CAR accident (hopefully w/o injury!). Try and make it to Otto's -- especially Nov 3. Dave

What's at Otto's (Shrunken Head I presume) on Nov. 3, Tiki Kollektor?

And sorry to hear about the driving snafu, Raffertiki
that's one thing I dig about Gotham, subways!

That's everyone, but yes I am very okay.
TIKI Kollecktor, if I was on my bike I would've been creamed and buried in a coffee tin, but thankfully I wasn't. It gave me a lot to think about though, especially considering the Triumph became my only mode of transportation. I will definately shoot for Otto's. That's an easy train ride, and a cab. Life is a funny place.

I have been curious about this place also and would love another excuse to hang out with the NYC tiki crowd (and of course guzzle rum!) Can anyone give this outer borough challenged East Villager travel advice? Like what's the best way to get there?

Anyone know more about the vibes of this place? Is it loud rock and roll like Otto's?
