Pono Brewing, five bartenders (many from the 7th Negroni Social!), five restaurants, hundreds of oysters and a long list of Shandy cocktails come together in one place: Shandytown.
Setup like a mini food festival married with a cocktail competition, you will roam the party eating plates from each chef and tasting all of the five Shandy cocktails to vote for your favorite variation and crown People’s Choice: "The Commissioner of Shandytown” and 3 local celebrity judges will do the same to name Judges Choice: "The Mayor of Shandytown”. Winners receive a key to Shandytown and will defend their title next year.
Tickets include 5 shandy cocktails, yacht rock on the speakers and food until you’re full (and maybe beyond that)! Use code IMHUNGRY when purchasing tickets on Feastly to get 20% off.
Proceeds benefit Growing Gardens.
