Calling In Favors!

Okay everyone.  Remember all those times I helped you by promoting your special event or cause?  Time to return the favor!  


Cause #1:  Relay For Life ~ Flagler Beach
          Relay For Life is this weekend in Flagler Beach!   There are three ways you can help me with this cause.  First, give me some money!   By that I mean donate to the American Cancer Society via Team TikiTender at http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=37370&team_id=1038665.   Two, share this link with others in you circle.   Three, show up for the event Saturday night!   It is at Wadsworth Park, beginning at 4pm.  Music by Old Haw Creek until 5:30.   Music by Two Thirds around 10pm.   Mr. Relay contest (featuring me!) at around midnight.  David Lane Band around 12:30am.   Good times all night long.  Find out how you can join the fight against cancer while having a good time!

Cause #2: Florida Beach Bar voting.  
              The Golden Lion Cafe, my home bar, is in contention to repeat last year's selection as Best Waterside Bar in Florida.   A vote for the Golden Lion is a vote for me, so take a few seconds to vote at www.floridabeachbar.com/vote.  Look for THE GOLDEN LION CAFE in the dropdown menu.   Thanks!


Now that wasn't too bad was it?

Drink Recipe: Smiling Amy

A semi regular customer was in over the weekend at the Tiki Bar.   She initially ordered a margarita, then asked me to make her something with the bottle of Cruzan® Mango rum she spotted on the shelf.  Since her first impulse was a margarita, stayed with the tart and came up with what we named the "Smiling Amy".   I'm happy to add Amy to my list of personalized drinks because she is a Red Sox fan, which is the next best thing to being a Cubs fan!

Smiling Amy©
1 oz Cruzan® Mango rum
1 oz Cruzan® Citrus rum
1 oz sour mix
splash grenadine
club soda to balance

Build over ice, garnish with a cherry,  and watch Amy smile.

Until next time, drink responsibly mon.

1 1/2 oz apple juice

A little self promotion (aka I need your vote!)

It is that time of year again!  As many of you know, I was named the Fun Coast's Favorite Bartender by Backstage Pass Magazine for 4 out of the last 5 years.  It is time once again that I ask you to cast your vote for me.   You can find the ballot at the above link after clicking forward to page 14. If you have enjoyed my drinks in person or at your home bar,  I ask for your consideration as Favorite Bartender (Mark Woods - Golden Lion).  Take a look at the categories and remember all the great venues and entertainers in the area as well. 

Votes can be cast via email at info@backpassmag.com

The Holidays Are Upon Us!

Golden Lion Header

Zeus News
November 30, 2011 



The holidays are here in Flagler Beach!  Crisp "winter" temperatures in the 50s, rope lights on palm trees, and skydiving Santa!   

This weekend marks the official start of the holidays with our Holiday Parade, tree lighting, and music in the park!    A perfect chance to come over to the beach and enjoy all we have to offer.  

Of course here at the Lion we celebrate everything.  First day of December, sunset, Tuesday.  You name it, we celebrate it!  This weekend we will have great local music from Billy Bowers and Dug & Fill.    Happy Holidays!

Did we mention that the Holiday Parade passes right in front of The Golden Lion?

Holiday At The Beach

Golden Lion Header
  

We're pretty sure that only in Flagler Beach will you see Santa parachute in and make a landing in the sand next to Scenic A1A.   

 

If that's not motivation enough other highlights of the weekend include live music, the lighting of Veteran's Park, a full holiday parade passing right in front of the Golden Lion, Flagler / Fun Coast Bed Race, and the Corvette Club will be riding in. 

What a fun weekend this will be in Flagler Beach!  Click the image for more information.  Hope to see you!

Fresh Florida Shrimp

If you are a local or a regular visitor, you already know you can watch shrimp boats off our beach nearly every evening.  What you might not know is that we get fresh Florida shrimp from those very boats!

Try some this weekend peel & eat style (one pound) or with mussels, andouille sausage, red potatoes, pinwheel corn, and garlic bread.   Mouthwatering!
