IT'S SUMMERTIME AT DON THE BEACHCOMBER
AND WE'RE LAUNCHING #9 OF NINE ORIGINAL
COCKTAILS FROM DONN BEACH ON LABOR DAY!
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 more of his original cocktails to the menu, which already features some of his classics!

TONIGHT!!
Beachcomber’s Gold – “A priceless concoction, lime and almond highlights, with multiple rums and just enough absinthe to make the heart grow fonder.” (From a 1959 menu.) If you’re interested in experiencing this one in its original, pre-1933 version, have your bartender add absinthe by asking for “an Original.” $12/14 “original”

Labor Day, Monday, September 5th
Pink Cow – Don made this for himself in “Ernie’s Place” – his pre-Repeal “speakeasy” in Hollywood – with a formula based on a 1600s Colonial drink. This half milk, half rum cocktail, is as clear as water with a pink hue and Donn’s perfecting touch! It may seem to be a very refined drink, but don’t underestimate it! $9

We're introducing these new Don's drinks to our Bar Menu
Today and next 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!
