Get your tiki on!

Eastern Standard Tiki PartyUPDATE: Sorry, imbibers. I did not realize how close this event was to selling out when I wrote this reminder post about the tiki party at Eastern Standard. For anyone still interested in attending, there is a waiting list. Click on the link below for contact info.

Still making weekend plans? In case you hadn’t heard already, drinkboston is co-hosting a tiki party at Eastern Standard tomorrow starting at 2:00 p.m. What could be better than escaping a cold, grey New England afternoon to mingle in a roomful of people wearing tropical garb, listening to Martin Denny, drinking luscious rum drinks and eating roast pig and other tasty Polynesian fare? Not only that, you’ll learn about the curious, kitschy history of Polynesia in the U.S. and Boston from Brother Cleve, professor of cocktail/bar culture, DJ, musician and all-around Boston legend. All this for $50, tax and tip included. See you there!

    I attended this event and have to say, “Wow!”. A real education, phenomenal drinks, lovely food, great music. Really beautifully put together. My wife and I had later plans for the evening and had to go home for a big nap first. In her words, “Tiki drinks are one sneaky, tasty way to get knocked on your ass!” We learned a lot, and met some really nice, interesting, fun people. Thanks to all who put this fabulous event together!
