I'm helping put on a tiki night at Vintage 56 in Rockledge on June 23rd. I would really love to see as many tiki people as possible show up. There is going to be a Hawaiian buffet and I'll be part of the team making authentic tiki drinks. They will be served in a mug that you can bring home with you. Or bring your own mug and get a discount off of your first drink. I'm hoping that it's going to be a really fun evening and hopefully the first of many other themed nights at Vintage 56.

Check the attached flyer for more info.

Authentic tiki drinks and fare featured at Vintage 56 Tiki Night June 23

More information and reservations: 321-639-4048

When tiki bars first emerged in the mid-20th century, they evoked an idealized Polynesian paradise. Thanks to the creative mixology of Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic and many imitators, tiki drinks were known for their exotic flavors, fresh-squeezed fruit juices, fine rums and potency. Relive this Polynesian pop era with true tiki drinks and delicious Hawaiian-inspired dishes during Tiki Night at Vintage 56 in Rockledge on Saturday, June 23, from 5 p.m. to close.

The restaurant will feature a special Hawaiian buffet from 6 to 9 p.m. — all you can eat for $18. It will include BBQ Rum Black Bean Soup, Vintage Spinach Salad, Mango Chili Glazed Chicken Thighs, Pineapple Jerked Pork Loin, Citrus Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Coconut Jasmine Rice, Citrus-Honey Smoked Carrots, and Plantain Mash. Patrons may also order from the restaurant menu.

Behind the bar, guest mixologists George Jenkins and Jimi Gonzalez will be making tiki-drink classics — the Zombie, the original formidable tiki drink; and the Mai Tai, the most popular tiki drink of all time — as they were meant to be served. They will also offer modern rum cocktails inspired by the tiki tradition.

Drinks will be served in keepsake tiki mugs; get a discount on your first drink if you bring your own tiki mug.

There is no cover charge. Reservations are suggested. Please call 321-639-4048.

Should have video coming up tomorrow. And if you are thinking of going, you might want to make reservations. The restaurant is already 50% reserved. Sounds like it's going to be a blast!

Last night was quite the success, even if I do say so myself. We had the entire restaurant reserved except for one or two tables from the second they opened. People stayed and drank tiki drinks and socialized until they literally had to throw everybody out. Had people from Orlando and all over the county show up. The owners are already discussing the next date with us. Hoping to perhaps grow the event a little the next time around. We'll see.

The owners must have had one too many of our drinks because they want to have another tiki night! Right now all we have is a date: August 11 and a theme: Mai Tai Mania. We are going to be serving 4 different types of Mai Tais! Watch this space for more details and a flyer coming soon!

Another really fun event with the finest of company, perfect cocktails, delicious food, and a pleasing blend of classic and contemporary hapa haole and exotica music in the background. The Mai Tai menu...




My favorite was the classic 1944 Trader Vic's Mai Tai...




Our talented pair of mixologists were George Jenkins (TikiHardBop) and Jimi Gonzales...





George Jenkins...



Jimi Gonzalez...




Ed Volonnino of Ed's Heads Tikis brought along some of his work to realign the restaurant decor to the event...






The lomi lomi salmon (left) and ahi poke (right) were really good...




And the rest was equally delicious...






Chris Kridler (TornadoTiki) making sure everyone knew the cocktail choices...




Kathyrn Gonzalez and Christina Jordan (metikigal)...




The folks at the next table over were really enjoying their Mai Tais...




-Tom
