Surf’s up on South Beach, as Ted Allen, author and beloved host of the hit Food Network series Chopped and Chopped Junior, hosts an evening of Polynesian flare, with Hawaiian-inspired bites and tiki-inspired cocktails from across the country. Once again, guests will enjoy an artful display of libations and bites at the hip and trendy Surfcomber boutique hotel. We’ve rounded up some of the best bartenders from highly regarded tiki-inspired joints across the country as they compete to be crowned tiki-King at the end of the night. Allen will join an esteemed panel of judges, to evaluate the contestants’ rum-centric offerings, while you sip on the entries and enjoy savoring bites from some of South Florida’s most buzzed about spots. From Don the Beachcomber (both the man and the restaurant) to Trader Vic’s to every place and symbol in between, tiki is more than a drink, it's a subculture enjoying a resurgence in popularity with bartenders across America and we’re bringing it back to the beach -- to South Beach!
