Because tiki pop-ups mean... drink umbrellas (!!!), head to PMoA this week for Granite Hill's Tiki Pop-Up, a big-ass, four-day-only (next Thurs-Sun), Stephen-Starr-orchestrated coconut-bra-apalooza where they'll be turning the museum's entire East Terrace into a Gauguin-inspired Polynesian oasis of whole-roasted pigs, tiki 'tails, and bamboo torches. So grab your over-sized volcano bowl & straw and get ready for:
Classic Island Food: From banana leaf-baked fish and carved-to-order whole hog, to Hawaiian slaw and rum-butter-slathered Molokai sweet potatoes, they'll have a massive spread of hula-skirt-complementing comestibles -- enjoy too many of them and you might be too full to get ukulaid. Kidding! You're never too full to get ukulaid.
Classic Island Drinks: They'll pour rum-tastic tipples at an outdoor bar and into a take-home tiki tumbler, with Mai Tais joining the likes of a Hawaiian Iced Tea (vodka, rum, pineapple, Blue Curacao) and coconut-rum-fronted Polynesian Princess, aka Billy Ocean's fallback if he can't land that Caribbean Queen.
Classic Island Other Stuff: There'll also be a live steel drum band, even more tiki decor from hibiscus flowers to giant thatched umbrellas, exotic fruits on swizzle sticks, and rum-caramel-filled pineapple upside down cake, too much of which'll make it hard for you to pop-up once the night is done.
