Liz Lessner's tiki bar, The Grass Skirt, celebrates its one year anniversary the same weekend Surf Ohio celebrates 35 years. Despite the age difference, both camps plan to party like it's their 21st with specialty cocktails, tunes and (of course) tiki torches at a dual birthday bash this weekend.

Friday night the festivities kick off with surf classics from DJ RaymondTVinyl from 7 p.m. -10 p.m., and continue Saturday night with DJ Trader Jeff spinning exotica and other tiki favoriteson from 7 p.m.-10 p.m.

Get in the tiki spirit with a special Zombie Bride cocktail (featuring lime-cardamom rum) or a Surfer Blood sangria. If you need to refuel, a special three course pork dinner will be offered.

Surf Ohio will be offering killer 35th anniversary shirts at the event, special edition Surf Ohio/Grass Skirt shirts, plus tons of awesome swag including posters designed and signed by Clinton Reno.

It sounds super fun right? Coconut bras are optional.

The Grass Skirt is located at 105 N. Grant Ave., Downtown.
