On Tuesday May 14th, and reoccurring the second Tuesday of every month, Erick Castro will transform Polite Provisions into a tropical tiki oasis. Complete with ornate mugs, lavish garnishes, and the true fixings of a great tiki drink – aged rum, falernum, and specialty house-made syrups – our guests will be transported to a true tiki lover’s paradise.
This month, Erick is joined by Marcovaldo “Marco” Dionysos of San Francisco’s Smuggler’s Cove. Marco created the cocktail program at Absinthe Brasserie & Bar in 1997, and has been found serving up cocktails at joints such as Bourbon & Branch, Stars, and Harry Denton’s Starlight Room.
According to Erick, “The latest revival of the tiki scene stemmed from a backlash of pretension we were seeing largely on the craft cocktail front. It’s not rocket science, there’s just something so approachable about drinking rum, throwing on a Hawaiian shirt and having a good time”. So come down dressed to impress in your best tiki attire, and prepared to enjoy some damn fine tiki drinks. The event is free and open to the public and begins at 7PM. Tiki cocktails will start at $8, limited options from the regular Polite Provisions menu will be available.
