June 24 through 30 Dallas will celebrate Tiki Week. This year more bars and restaurants are participating, and it all kicks off with the fun cocktail at Sandbar Cantina. Se have listed the calendar below (sans a private event for U.S. Bartending Guild members). If you care to be a member, and membership definitely has its privileges all year long, checkout the USBG website.

Note that this year craveDFW is participating in a big way. We are operating the Tiki Tour through out Dallas that includes stops at Bolsa, Driftwood, Sunset Lounge, HG Sply, Libertine and Bind Butcher. We will be boarding a luxury bus, enjoying cocktails along the route (with even more cocktails along the way with our on board bartender). Food will be provided, along with a very jammed packed gift bag and a special Tiki Week lanyard to take home.

Seating for the tour is extremely limited and you may only purchase tickets for this event by emailing Steven Doyle at steven@cravedfw.com. No seats may be purchased at the time of the event. Cost is $65 and is all inclusive, plus we can arrange for a ride home for those without designated drivers. Tickets are on sale now, and most likely will not last more than a few days. This event starts at 3:30pm and goes on into the evening of Saturday the 28th.

Check out the rest of the week:    Continue reading
