Spirited Hale Aina Happenings: Drink Up!
Drinks coming back in style: Prohibition-era cocktails, tiki drinks. Blasts from the past that you don't see: 80s cocktails. Think Technicolor-green Grasshoppers and creamy Mudslides. Fix that at Pint and Jigger tonight, which will be celebrating its second anniversary with 80s drinks. Come with your scrunchies and leg warmers and other 80s attire and get cocktails for $3. Just a little bit of fun with the Pint and Jigger crew before they get back to business, opening their second location at the Hee Hing Plaza on Kapahulu at the end of the year.
Pint and Jigger's second anniversary, May 28 from 7 p.m., 1936 S. King St., 744-9593
