We found ourselves in Ventura last weekend and tried a new place called Ventiki. It’s a great little tiki-themed bar with an extensive fruity cocktail menu and tasty looking food rolling out of the kitchen.
After the first round, the bartender hands us a couple of cards and explains the Ventiki challenge: Drink all 19 of the house cocktails and receive a t-shirt and a Ventiki mug. No time limit and can be completed over multiple visits but must be certified by bartender on your drink card. Great, right? It gets better.
The first 100 rum-swilling, salty seadog patrons to complete their card will have their names immortalized on a plaque. 48 have completed (despite Aarika A’s Yelp claim that this is “likely unattainable”).
On the menu:
Mai Tai – ALREADY CONSUMMED
Jet Pilot – ALREADY CONSUMMED
Zombie – ALREADY CONSUMMED
Shrunken Head – ALREADY CONSUMMED
Voodoo Temptress of the Seven Pleasures (I’m excited for this one…)
Alter of Sacrifice
I.C.C of ‘73
Lagoon of Forbidden Desire
$25 Dollar Mai Tai
The plan of attack has been set: drink, feed, hydrate, nap, repeat. We’ve even also created an 'I CAN DO THIS' t-shirt for the occasion.
