Your three-day weekend is almost here, but you're ready to vacation now.

For the next-best-thing to a tropical retreat, we recommend heading over to The Spare Room at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel tonight at 9 p.m. for "An Evening of Tiki." Expect delicious rum-based cocktails with tropical fruit garnishes, island-inspired music, and Hawaiian shirts maybe, probably. With the unofficial summer kickoff only days away, no one will judge.

Tonight's guest bartenders include Julian Cox from Rivera and Zachary Patterson from Bagatelle.

If you're not one of the 750,000 travelers jetting through LAX this weekend and headed to an actual island to get your tropical fix, there will be more evenings of Tiki at the Spare Room all summer featuring an impressive lineup of guest bartenders from L.A. and around the country.
