RAISING THE DEAD IN FLORIDA

The Beachbum spent ten years tracking down the original lost recipe for the Zombie.  Why?  From the end of Prohibition to the dawn of Disco, the Zombie was the world’s most famous drink.  It kick-started the whole Tiki craze, and put Don The Beachcomber’s Hollywood bar on the map.  Inventor Donn Beach kept his original 1934 recipe a closely guarded secret for decades — and when the Bum finally tracked it down, the recipe was in code.  Join him April 25 at Fort Lauderdale’s historic Mai-Kai restaurant for an hour of Poly Pop history.  While sipping samples of vintage Zombie recipes, you’ll learn why this legendary drink was the toast of the Hollywood movie crowd, how it made headlines across the globe, and hear the true-life detective story of how the recipe’s secret code was finally cracked.

But wait, there’s more:  A Zombie cocktail contest follows, and as long as we’re all at the Mai-Kai, it would offend the gods not to stay for dinner and the restaurant’s famous floor show.  Details:
