When are you punching the clock at Monkeypod Kitchen?
Very often. Always on Sunday nights.
Why sling booze?
I love smiling, laughing and talking story with people.
Tequila, Champagne, Anchor Liberty Ale.
No Ka Oi: Ocean vodka with muddled Thai basil, lime, simple syrup and mixture of local honey, lilikoi and egg whites. It has a great flavor and light frothy texture, thanks to the egg whites. Our Monkeypod Mai Tai is pretty awesome, too.
Champagne when I can afford it (which is rarely). Usually whatever cheap wine (red or white) that’s in my fridge.
Sweet soused perks
Meeting so many interesting people and having them tell me that my hair looks nice.
Bottle Buzz Kills
Wanting to drink with the people I meet.
Monkeypod Kitchen just started doing champagne Sundays: 50 percent off bottles of bubbles all day!
