If you like Pina Coladas, then an important date for your diary is Sun 10 July. That’s when Patterns, Brighton’s favourite seafront bar and cultural hotspot, will celebrate National Pina Colada Day in a Sunday Social special. Yes, it’s time to make like Del Boy and don your tropical prints, as Patterns will be rewarding the winner of ‘Best Dressed on Pina Colada Day’ with bottomless Pina Coladas. Think Hawaiian prints, Del Boy, Milky Joe from The Mighty Boosh, grass skirts or general tropical expression. Patterns will also be unveiling a limited edition ‘Pina Coladog’ in partnership with resident gourmet hot dog restaurant The Dog Haus.
Everything Sunday will be kicking things off at 12:30, delivering their unique fusion of social hangout, cabaret and open mic all rolled into one. Interspersed with bite-sized chunks of entertainment and information, Everything Sunday is a thought-provoking and entertaining way to kick off your Sunday with everyone encouraged to get involved. If you’re lacking an obvious topic, use National Pina Colada day to channel your creative (Pineapple) juices and get up on stage yourself to win a prize!
Moving into the afternoon, the venue’s sun-drenched outdoor terrace will be transformed into a tropical haven with pineapples a plenty, yacht rock DJs and an abundance of sizzling hot dogs including for one day only – the ‘Pina Cola-dog’ complete with a zingy BBQ’d pineapple salsa-loaded topping (pineapple, peppers, coriander and red onion), chilli jam and a coriander and mint yoghurt on a pork dog. Hot tropical dawgs!
As well as all this, if you’re fed up with digital dating and want to use the common ground of Pina Coladas to meet a fellow Pina enthusiast in real life. In a homage to Rupert Holmes’ infamous 1979 Pina anthem Patterns are using their matchmaking prowess in their first ever ‘Pina Colada Love Match’.
Unlike the lyrics of the actual song it’s probably nicer to do this if you DON’T already have a partner!
All you need to do is upload a photo of yourself looking suitably tropical to Instagram with the hashtag #doyoulikepinacoladas and tag @patternsbtn in.
The image description should contain: A – what you are looking for in partner B – Your likes C – Your dislikes.
Patterns will then do their best to pair you up with a suitable love match. You’ll be reserved a table for two in Patterns on National Pina Colada Day, plus given a complimentary Pina Colada to start the conversation flowing.
As usual Patterns £15 weekend bottomless boozy brunch will be available from 12 – 4pm, which includes a hotdog and bottomless Prosecco, Bloody Mary, or for one day only…. BOTTOMLESS PINA COLADAS! For anyone avoiding alcohol or the more health conscious among you Patterns are also serving up a signature Virgin Pina Colada, made with coconut water and fresh pineapple for a refreshing and nutritious alternative.
Expect tropical party beats and deeply tropical times as Patterns goes totally ‘coco loco’ for National Pina Colada day!
