Staying true to the original Don the Beachcomber restaurant conceptualized in the 1930s by Donn Beach, the founding father of tiki, Arthur and Delia Snyder are introducing nine of his original cocktails to the menu!

Singapore Sling – this drink was invented in Raffles Bar in Singapore in the 1800s. Donn visited in late 1920s, and came to Los Angeles with a revolutionary change that raised this gin-based favorite to the level of a true cocktail, with a series of added flavors better experienced than described! $12

Monday, July 18
Penang Afrididi – this cocktail features rare & precious rums, combined with several fruit juices and Donn’s own flavors to make an extraordinary drink. To have it the way that Donn first created it in “Ernie’s Place” – his pre-Repeal “speakeasy” – ask your bartender for “an Original.” If you question your ability to finish this strong drink, ask for “Number 2,” which is half of the full sized “Number 1.” #1 $12/$14 “original” #2 $7/$9 “original”

In the upcoming weeks we will be introducing a new Don's drink to our Bar Menu
Every Monday, during Happy Hour from 4 pm to close!

You're invited to try a 2-ounce complimentary test of the New Drink of the Day,
and only purchase a full-size drink if you like it.
(An extra bonus since we know you will like it anyway!)

Geeks Who Drink! Pub Quiz!
What is this? Here's the short version:
* Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK.
* Quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television.
* Each quiz has two audio rounds: a "Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV.
* Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you're some kind of savant.
* If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team.
* Winning teams gets street cred, bar cash and other prizes depending on the venue. Bonus Questions for free pints are sprinkled throughout the quiz.
* You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final Jeopardy!
8-10 p.m. in the Longboard Room - More Info: HERE!
