[FREE] Tiki Summer Takeover Series - Double Play Part 1 - Damon's

Needs a location

We all gotta eat, and this is a great place to begin the evening before our CanTiki party! Polynesian restaurants were all the rage when Loyal Adelbert Damon launched his eponymous steak house in Glendale in 1937. Although contemporaries like Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic’s have faded away, Damon's Steakhouse continues to serve hearty steaks and sturdy rum cocktails. Beautiful aquariums, palapa palms, and fantastic island murals (by Bettina Byrne) are just part of the decor.

If you want to eat you can make your reservations here - Reservations at Damon's Steakhouse. You can also just come in and enjoy the beautiful bar area where food is also available.

(Entry is free, the food & drinks are not free!)

The history of Damon's Steakhouse.

~~~~This event is part of our 'Tiki Summer Takeover' series. Over the summer we will visit some of the best Tiki venues in the area, cumulating in our own luau extravaganza at the beach! All participants will receive raffle tickets for multiple prizes which will be announced/given out at the Luau. You also have chances to score additional raffle tickets at every event. For example come dressed in tiki/luau attire for an additional raffle ticket. Correctly answer a tiki trivia question for an additional raffle ticket!

More on 'Hand Habits' ~~~~ Hand Habits is the songwriting outlet of guitarist Meg Duffy. Their recent album, Fun House, wasn't intended as a reaction to the pandemic but was the result of taking a difficult, if much-needed, moment of pause. Produced by Sasami Ashworth (SASAMI) and engineered by Kyle Thomas (King Tuff), its eleven tracks sparkle and surprise, representing the turning of a corner, a means of processing hardship and stepping into one's own power. Meg has also toured as a guitarist with Sylvan Esso and recorded on albums for War on Drugs, Weyes Blood, William Tyler, Fruit Bats, and others, and in 2020, Meg joined Perfume Genius as a touring guitarist.
