Block Party Luau

Whitney Currin



Sunday was the Block Party Luau at Bar Mash, as Mash teamed up with HomeTeam BBQ to give a great luau-themed party!






The tickets were $30 prior to the party and $40 at the door. These included the food provided by HomeTeam BBQ and 3 drink tickets. A portion of the proceeds went to supporting Lowcountry Street Grocery.






As always, HomeTeam certainly knows what’s up with BBQ and any type of food catering so it’s a clear go when considering attending any event with their food. The BBQ was located inside along with the awesome bluegrass 5-piece band.



Here comes the most exciting part…







The drinks which were set up at three bars.  The Luau had Mash’s bar lead, Teddy Nixon, set up at the frozen drink bar and as all should know—Teddy certainly has the gift of creativity when creating any beverage.



You had the option of four great frozen drinks (the "Dirty Banana" was the crowd winner) and jello shots to accompany those.











Two of the frozen beverages had the base of the local Striped Pig rum, so the block party had the pleasure of Johnny and Juliana’s (Striped Pig Distillery's head distiller & marketing director) presence at the party. These two are just awesome and certainly the hit of the show—I mean check out their outfits…







Side note: Johnny informed me that his attire was found in his grandfather's gun closet and dates back to when his grandmother and grandmother went to Hawaii circa 1979. #vintage






Overall it was a killer party, even when we had the typical daily 4 o’clock Charleston rain showers.




The crew behind planning this event were Phase:3 PR, who does the PR for all of Indigo Road affiliates (Oku, Macintosh, Mercantile, Mash, Cedar Room, Oak, Indaco, Cocktail Club).




I would be sure to consider attending any and all events at any Indigo Road establishment because they are very well planned out and always a good time! On the horizon there is a yoga event this Saturday in the Cedar Room.



You can sign up here. Also, Indaco will soon be celebrating it’s 3 year anniversary so be on the lookout for events to celebrate that!
