The latest info on the next tiki night:
Tiki Night returns on Aug. 18 to Rockledge restaurant Vintage 56, celebrating the Polynesian Pop era with a delicious Hawaiian buffet and authentic tiki drinks made by guest bartenders George Jenkins and Jimi Gonzalez. This time, the theme is Mai Tai Madness, and 10 percent of bar sales go to the National Kidney Foundation in memory of Rich Salick, who died July 2; he co-founded the National Kidney Foundation Pro Am Surf Festival.
The event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 18, 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 kalua pulled pork, ahi tuna poke, lomi lomi salmon, char siu chicken thighs, quinoa fried rice with bacon and kale, sweet potato and plantain mash, Hawaiian Kai Portagee soup, ginger-sesame roasted carrots, pineapple soy marinated green beans, and for dessert, chocolate rum cake and haupia. Patrons may also order from the restaurant menu.
The four Mai Tai cocktails that will be presented by the evening’s mixologists include the classic rum recipe, as well as surprising and refreshing variations made with whiskey and tequila. In the true tiki tradition, they will employ fresh-squeezed juices and the best ingredients for a potent and flavorful experience.
There is no cover charge. Reservations are suggested. Please call Vintage 56 at 321-639-4048.
