Server Banner Boy, June 9-15, 2014

Jason Alexander

The Tacoma Cabana is Tacoma's craft tiki bar, nestled in Tacoma's hip lower Pacific Avenue. Co-owner and bartender Jason Alexander, armed with recipes from Trader Vic's and Don the Beachcomber and his trusty fez, pours scratch tropical craft concoctions incorporating his own ideas, infusions and syrups.

Why do you serve?

Because it's fun. For as antisocial as I can be at times, I enjoy the social aspect of it a lot.

Who is your favorite server in the South Sound?

Whether he is serving up a keg of beer to me at the cabana or pouring a tall, frosty cold one at his taproom at Tacoma Brewing Company, Morgan Alexander has to be my favorite server right now. I love talking shop with that guy any chance I can get.

What are you most proud to serve?

I'm most proud to serve the awesome people of Tacoma and surrounding areas. I have really great customers that I look forward to seeing on a weekly basis

Current drink of choice?

Anything with high-quality, overproof rum in it.

Favorite movie?

Dredd (2012). I'd love to be a judge if that were a real job.

What don't you serve?

Anything that doesn't contain rum.

What's on your radar at Tacoma Cabana?

Forecast says, "it's all just rum, lime and sugar with pineapple wrapped in bacon."
