“Doctor Z's Castaway Lounge Annual Summer Spectacular” Saturday, July 31!!
7/28 UPDATE, with a bit more details:
Sabu (Master Of Coal and Flame) has graciously agreed to be at the grill once again, cookin’ his famous marinated coconut ti-leaf chicken & shrimp skewers, and (naturally) Doctor Z will be behind the bar, makin’ the best Mai Tai’s, Beachbum’s Own’s & Navy Grog’s you’ll EVER have!
PLUS: The Castaway Lounge is proud to feature not only TikiBird’s award-winning Mango Tiki home brew, but his sensational Summer Lager - both on tap!!
But that’s not all! By popular demand, we will again be featuring “Doctor Z’s Tiki Arts & Crafts!”
Once again, I’ve made plenty of plaster-cast “Ku” masks (yeah, the same ones that are selling for up to $15.00 each on eBay, like these, but unpainted. And free.) that YOU – in your inebriated state – will be able to paint YOURSELF and take home to keep and cherish for ever and ever. And ever. I’ll provide the masks, the paints, the brushes, you provide the inspired creativity! Oh, one thing, however: it’s BYOB (Bring Your Own Brown) - the watercolor paint kits I have don’t have brown paint! A few folks brought their own brown last year and I still have some left over (but not much), so if you have your own paints, you’re welcome to bring them! And of course, prizes will be given out to the ‘best’ masks…
But wait – there’s more! For all you amateur and professional mixologists, we will once again feature “The Castaway Lounge Guest Bartender, starring YOU”!
As ‘at home’ as I am behind the bar, I don’t really want to be stuck there ALL night, so if you have a signature drink you’ve been itching to mix for folks to sample, take a ‘guest spot’ behind the bar. I’ll have most of your standard alcohols & mixers, but if your recipe requires a certain special sumthin’ (Lychee nuts? Kava?), you gonna hafta bring it yourself! I'm sure most TC’ers are more than happy to serve as guinea pigs for most things. Looks like TikiPug, Hanalei Pirate, PiPhiRho & Kick_the_Reverb have already claimed ‘shifts’, but there’s still room for YOU!
Sadly, Sabu’s Vintage Boutique will not be held this year. However, if you have any vintage clothes, mugs, artwork, carvings, or whateva that you’d like to sell or trade (or simply show off – are ya listening, TikiHula??) bring it on over anyhow! I’ll set up a table or two, ‘cause there’s nothing like a little wheelin’ and dealin’ with the ohana, and you might leave with something nice (or some $$!)
I haven’t had much response for a drink contest, so it looks like we’ll put that on the back burner for now…
Speaking of burners, things will kick-off a bit earlier this year: the grill will be good to go from about 1:00 on if you want to come early & bring something for lunch, and Sabu will take over around 5-ish. The bar will be open all afternoon and all night!
Donations never required but never refused!!
NOTE: I can NOT make any assurances of mass "clothing-exchanging" or "classic-rock-by-request ukelele jams" - that kinda stuff just 'happens', doncha know...
Any questions (like “Where can we spend the night?”), drop me a line!!
If you were there last year, we'd love to see you again, and if you've never been to The Castaway Lounge - where ya been?
Directions: 1303 S. Helberta Avenue, Redondo Beach. From the 405, exit at Hawthorne Blvd. Take Hawthorne south and make a RIGHT on Torrance Blvd. From Torrance Blvd., make a LEFT on Palos Verdes Blvd. After a mile or so, make a LEFT at the first stop sign after Prospect; which is Helberta. The Castaway Lounge is in the second house on the right, with the torches burning in the front yard...
Mix-maestro of the Castaway Lounge,
Redondo Beach, CA

Now you're having a bash? You SOUCAL'ers got the TIKI "PARTY" CENTRAL goin' strong!
Would it be OK if I start passing around a tin can to collect gas money and subsequently end up crashed out on your floor?~~Cousin Dave

Sounds like fun...
I'm also taking suggestions for an "Oasis-style" drink mixin' contest, if'n anyone is interested.
I can't mix 'em that well, but I sure can taste 'em REAL GOOD. Happy to help out were I can.
OMG! I'm on Instagram!

Dr. Z and Z Girl,
I had such a blast at your house last time that I CANNOT miss this one! I have a 500 lb ice machine at the bar and ice chests. Let me know if you want me to bring some.
