Solomon Schechter Academy's Annual Fundraiser – Tiki Party:
 
After months of winter, come visit our tropical hideaway March 3, 2012
 

 

 

Having begun on the West Coast in the 1930s, the 1950s and 60s saw the peak of Tiki Culture in the U.S., with the popularity of tiki restaurant-bars such as Trader Vic's and Don the Beachcomber (both of which claim to have invented the Mai Tai). While inspired by tiki mythology, the connection was mainly stylistic and blossomed into a form of American kitsch.   In an homage to this kitsch tiki culture, Solomon Schechter Academy will transform the Beth El Social Hall into Trader Shec's, our very own Polynesian hideaway complete with Tiki Bar, thatch-roofed hut, palm trees, tiki torches, and more.  The fun begins at 7:30pm on Saturday evening, March 3, 2012 and continues into the night.
 
Sumptuous kosher catering by Abel Caterers of Woodbridge, CT will help set the mood.  Their Hawaiian chef has created a Polynesian-themed menu just for this event!  Arrive and enjoy butler-passed hors d’oeurves, including Chicken Satay, Thai Spring Rolls, and Hawaiian Meatballs, among other mouthwatering offerings.  Then visit a variety of dinner stations featuring Asian dishes such as Corned Beef with Pineapple Mango Chutney, Kung Pao Chicken, Tuna Kabobs, Hawaiian Pasta Salad, Papaya Coleslaw, Vegetable Fried Rice, and MORE!!!  And what about some exotic desserts like Guava Cake, Huapia (Coconut Pudding), Tropical Fruits, and other satisfying island-inspired sweets?!   It wouldn't be a tiki party without fruity umbrella cocktails!!  There will also be wine and beer for those who aren't quite ready for the full tiki experience. 
 
Boppers Entertainment will be providing the musical festivities for the evening.  You can limbo the night away, but make sure to take a break to check out the Silent Auction items we've got lined up!
