GINvasion 2016

Standard

I can think of umpteen reasons why you should come to Cucina 24 this Saturday for their semi-not really-annual Tiki Night, instead I’ll hit you with the most important ones.

  1. It’s sponsored by BULLDOG Gin…this stuff is super special, so special, that Cucina is the ONLY bar in North Carolina to have it (I think).
  2. Some of the most BADASS people I know are guest bartending. Like, for real, we’re bringin’ in gin slingers from all over the US, specifically from the most famous cocktail bars in the country to help us throw down.
  3. Did I mention BULLDOG Gin?

Ok, so here’s the deal, this crew of badassery is a group of super talented people starting a tour of the East Coast making their way from NYC to New Orleans for Tales of The Cocktail. Not only are they stopping in Asheville for the night, but we’re putting them to work, not because Donnie needs the help, but because I need someone else to harass at the bar.

The graphic below has a full list of tour dates and who you can expect to be pouring those  way cool gin and tiki cocktails I was telling you about!

Tiki Night @ Cucina 24

Standard

Asheville friends, did you know that Cucina 24 throws a Tiki Party? No? Well you do now..  Details are below.

Saturday April 18th, 11:00-2:00 a.m.
$5 at the door
Food spread by Brian Cannipelli
Music by the Ouroboros Boys

The ever amazing tiki-ologist (I don’t think that’s a word but I can’t think of a better way to describe Donnie Pratt). Donnie is known around Asheville for his delectable cocktails, he’s also one of the few who does Tiki very well.  I got a preview of the cocktails he’ll be serving and they’re remarkable. He’ll be using rums like Appleton, Flor De Cana, and Sailor Jerry. He’ll also be making a concoction with Monkey Shoulder.  Who knew you could have a Scotch Tiki drink?

Check out the photos above an below. Then go see what all the fuss is about on the 18th. I can’t make it, so go imbibe a little for me.
