This event started in 2002 to raise money for the San Diego Junior Lifeguards Association. It is sponsored by the Sandbar Sports and Grill in collaboration with Tavern 74, the Tavern at the Beach, Grinds and Wines, Canes and several other taverns. Over the last 5 years, they have donated thousands of dollars so kids can learn to swim, surf, kayak, snorkel and become skilled at life-saving techniques.

The event will start at 9 a.m. with complimentary breakfast burritos at the Sandbar Sports Grill in Mission Beach. Buses will take the 200 participants to Salt Creek for a shotgun start at noon. After the tournament, golfers will return to the Sandbar for a banquet and awards. iS Vodka will be raffling off several bottles of its vodka at the ceremony.

If this tournament is anything like the Hospitality Week Tournament held at Revere Golf Course in Vegas in March where iS Vodka sponsored the 18th hole, then golfers are in for a great time. 4 iS Angels made iS Bloody Mary’s and Lemon iStinis for everyone who stopped by the 18th hole. Shots of pure iS Vodka were poured down the luge in our iS sculpture with eagerly awaiting recipients, as the picture shows. Check out our Video for all the fun.

This event promises to be a ‘tempest in a teapot.’ Expert Mixologist Beau explains, “The great thing about making drinks is the people you meet along the way. Everyone from other bartenders, mixologists to the patrons, have had something to teach me about cocktails. Whether it’s been about spirit knowledge, how to “bruise,” or how to make the perfect G&T, it’s all been very valuable information.” Speaking about mixologists he respects, Beau exclaims, “Dale DeGroff, sticks to the classics with his own touch. Long live the King.”

Starting Friday, March 27, 2009, iS Vodka (pronounced “ice”) will be hosting Friday nights at Tabu in the MGM Grand, Las Vegas. It’s a perfect match – an ultra-premium vodka in an ultra-lounge. Last Friday night was packed as DJ Eric Forbes kept everybody dancing all night. He’s one of the best DJ’s I’ve heard around town when it comes to dance music.

Tabu is a great place to bring your friends, order VIP bottle service and dance on the tables! The atmosphere is intimate with a cool light show that shines colors and images on party-ers. Check out this video for last Friday night’s action: click here

iS Vodka is making a splash in Vegas. I heard say you can drink as much as you want and you won’t get a hangover! It’s super-smooth vodka made with glacier water from Iceland. I guess that means it’s good for you too.
