There are still a few spots available, and interested businesses can apply to be part of this year’s event here.

In addition to the delicious drinks on hand, this event will feature music by DJ E.Rich. Guests will also be eligible to win a variety of prizes from participating establishments. Milwaukee Record—the proud media sponsor of Turner Hall Tiki Takedown—will also be on-site to help emcee the event.
