Tiki at the Fort


Bummed that summer’s almost officially over? Fort Defiance has the cure for your autumnal blues. This Thursday, the Red Hook bar/restaurant is shedding its New Orleans/seasonal-American skin for something a bit more tropical–a tiki night called Forbidden Island. Follow the tiki torches inside for a special food menu, featuring a rotating, thematically appropriate appetizer and entrée (past choices have included crab rangoon, forbidden noodles and pork huli huli); cocktails include twists on classics like the mai tai, zombie and daiquiri, as well as original concoctions. All are reasonably priced–and delicious, with a special mai tai-and-entrée combo running just $24. And the theme doesn’t stop with the food and drink–servers (and many customers) rock their best Hawaiian shirts, and the music wouldn’t be misplaced on a white sandy beach. –CA
