Feeling a little retro this holiday season? Head to the Tonga Hut for their ninth annual Winter Wonderland party. The North Hollywood tiki bar has been around since 1958 and the vibe is distinctively ’60s cocktail party. Sip on a Zombie or Blue Hawaiian as you browse vendor booths for tiki-head stocking stuffers. Surf band High Tide will be onstage at 6 p.m., performing The Venture’s Christmas Album. Big Tiki Dude will be on the decks with plenty of holiday jams while you check out the bar’s current art show. Be prepared to spend a good chunk of your day here. The vendors will be around until at least sundown and the bartenders will be serving up some special drinks in addition to the classics. Durango’s Tacos will be on hand to keep you fed.
