Aloha!

Smuggler’s Cove in association with Zaya Rum is very proud to present the one and only Jeff “Beachbum” Berry LIVE at Smuggler’s Cove April 24th and 25th for a presentation of his famous seminar “Who’s Your Daddy: A Mai Tai Paternity Test.”

We will also be selling copies of Jeff’s books, including the brand new “Beachbum Berry Remixed.” Jeff will be available to sign your copy after the presentation.

Don’t miss Jeff’s only Northern California appearance in 2010!!!

Jeff will be presenting the seminar three times in an intimate setting with very limited seating: April 24th at 1PM and 3PM and April 25th at 3PM. Tickets are $29 and go on sale at 10AM on April 5th at:
http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/106560 (2 tickets per person limit)


Who’s Your Daddy: A Mai Tai Paternity Test
The Mai Tai War has raged for over half a century, and it ain't over yet. Bandleader Harry Owens claimed he introduced the Mai Tai to the world in 1954. Trader Vic claimed he invented the Mai Tai in 1944. And Don The Beachcomber said he invented the Mai Tai way back in 1932. At the risk of getting fragged in the crossfire, author Jeff "Beachbum" Berry will examine the evidence, and shake up samples of different Mai Tai recipes. The talk is fully illustrated with rare vintage slide-show images -- and of course, cocktails will be served....

About Jeff Berry:
Jeff “Beachbum” Berry is the author of five books on vintage Tiki drinks and cuisine -- Grog Log, Intoxica!, Taboo Table, and Sippin' Safari -- which Los Angeles magazine called “the keys to the tropical kingdom,” and his newest, Beachbum Berry Remixed. He has been profiled in the New York Times, Imbibe magazine, Salon.com, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Saveur.com, Bar magazine, and the Tampa Tribune; he’s also been featured in the Washington Post and W magazine. Jeff created the cocktail menu for the Luau in Beverly Hills, which the New York Times cited as one of the nation’s 24 “Bars on The Cutting Edge,” and co-created “Tiki+” for iPhone, a drink recipe app which Macworld magazine called “beautifully rendered and, thanks to Berry’s tireless reporting, impeccably sourced.” Jeff’s original cocktail recipes have been printed in publications around the world, most recently the 67th edition of the Mr. Boston Official Bartenders Guide; his drinks have been served at Smuggler’s Cove in San Francisco, Elletaria in Manhattan, the Tabou Tiki Room in Berlin, Taboo Cove in Las Vegas, the Tiki Room in Stockholm, Pho Republique in Boston, the Palace Cafe in New Orleans, and Intoxica in Copenhagen, among others. Jeff has appeared on Martha Stewart Living Radio and Radio Margaritaville, and has conducted tropical drink seminars and tastings across the U.S. and Europe. He serves on the advisory board of the Museum Of The American Cocktail.

I will be there for Sunday's seminar!

Coworker is having a wedding Saturday in Santa Cruz. Asked if I'd be going (drive up from LA? Ugh.). Got the message about this seminar that same morning. "Yes, probably." Just got my ticket. Adjusted my RSVP to "Yes, yes I will."

Lucky this seminar is going on so I have a reason to drive up for his wedding.

I saw Jeff's presentation at Hukilau last year. It's fabulous. Lot of yummy drinks and funny stories. Enjoy all! It'll be a treat.

Aloha! Hey, I didn't buy a ticket to this event, because I thought I'd still be out of town. Well, now I'm back in town. I thought that I had secured a ticket while I was away, but that just fell through! Does anyone have an extra ticket for this weekend? Preferrably tomorrow (Saturday), but any time slot will do. Can someone help a Brotha out? Any help would be much appreciated!

Had a blast and got to meet the beachbum. Pictured below. Also pictured is the huge bowl drink that Martin made. It took a whole bottle of rum and as you can see is quite explosive.

One question that I had for Jeff Barry was if trader Vic had a perfect pallet have you considered mixing just the rums that he had in his recipes to approximate rums that aren't in existence any more? His answer was that's the next thing I'm going to try. Now I'm such a newbie to all this tiki stuff and I'm thinking that must have been done before. If anyone has please tell me which rums to mix. If not then my question to the tiki Ohana is should we have some sort of a contest or rum mixing event? Inquiring minds and livers want to know.
