Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bar fare and drinks at Hurricanes Bar & Grill in Huntington Beach.
Hurricanes Bar & Grill has been pouring out 22 taps of brewed satisfaction for landlubbing locals since 1992. Prep palates for culinary ironman competitions with esophageal calisthenics in the form of 25 appetizers. Taste buds are engaged in a game of hot potato with an order of poppers, in which fire-roasted jalapeños are stuffed with a cream-cheese-and-cheddar filling, beer battered and deep fried ($5.99), and a bite-size United Nations holds assembly in the southwest eggrolls served with avocado cream and chili cilantro sauce ($6.99).
Monster burgers, such as the Garlic Lover ($10.49) or the blue-cheese bacon and dijon ($9.99), test oral wingspans with Harris Ranch USDA Choice beef and your choice of a side. Quench party thirsts with four flavors of margaritas or a specialty drink such as the Hurricane Punch, in which Bacardi, banana, orange, lime, and passion juices are splashed with Orgete and topped with a float of Lahina dark rum.
Hurricanes hosts DJs seven nights a week and pumps jams via EAW Avalon Series sound to fuel dance-floor renditions of the Tootsie Roll, the Cabbage Patch, or the Double-Jointed Pterodactyl Haunch Spasm. An electronic-light show bedazzles revelers, and seats at a granite bar help to recharge sidestepping stems. Fifteen plasmas and a 110-inch screen broadcast big games indoors, and Sunbrite TVs complement ocean views on two party patios.
