HAWA HAWAII: Outswinger dons a Hawaiian look for the Smirnoff Twisted Coconuts event.  

ENTER THE cosy little spot known for its cricket theme. The legends stare from the walls, the men dressed in impeccable whites complete with a cap and even the menu that comes filled with cricketing terms. That's Outswinger.

But Saturday saw a complete transformation of the ambience as the place donned a typical Hawaiian and Caribbean look. The artificial palms swayed to the throbbing music and the theme of beach party came alive with typical table tops and props.

For `Smirnoff Twisted Coconuts,' the special weekend event, Outswinger had the celebrity DJ from Bangalore, Jimmy, playing on vinyl LP records. There were exclusive cocktails and mocktails stirred specially for the occasion. Tempting were `Alohal' and `Lava Flow', drinks that were served in glassware which carried a flame in the centre.

With coconuts, twisted they might be, there were drinks that were served in tender coconut shells. How about sipping `Tahiti Sunset' from a coconut shell or falling to the charm of `Temptation Island'.

The chic decor fully complemented the fancy concoctions as the pubcrawlers swung to the music dished out by Jimmy.There were offers too. Order a large peg of Smirnoff and get another large free! And there was a hiss too. Oh, yeah, adding to the fun was a live snake that was paraded around. The more adventurous took a swig, moved closer and felt its scales.

There was a consolation for those who failed to make it to the Miss India contest held in the city the same evening. They remained glued to special television sets installed in the pub and savoured every moment of the evening with the live telecast.
