Drinking For a Cause: Kung Fu Saloon Raises a Glass to Support Dallas-Area Disaster Response

25% of Kung Fu Saloon’s December 29th drink sales will be donated directly to those affected by the recent Dallas-area tornadoes.

 

Kung Fu Saloon, Texans go-to spot for vintage arcade games and pickle shots, will donate 25% of their statewide December 29th drink sales directly to relief efforts of the recent Texas tornadoes. The Dallas location will also be holding a supply drive this week. Items can be dropped off at Kung Fu Saloon Dallas, located in Uptown at 2911 Routh St. Staff members will be personally delivering supplies and aid later this afternoon.

 

This is a part of the Texas-based company’s monthly ‘Drink 4 a Cause’ event, which began with their first location in Austin. They continued that spirit with their Dallas and Houston locations. Each month, the three locations partner with a local nonprofit for a specified evening, donating 15% of that day’s drink sales to their cause.

 

Through these monthly events, Kung Fu Saloon has donated over $30,000 this year alone to the American Red Cross in support of their Central Texas Flood relief efforts. Since the opening of their first Austin location in 2009, Kung Fu Saloon has donated over $250,000 to recipients like the West Texas Fire Department who received $25,500 in 2013 directly from one of these statewide Drink 4 a Cause benefits.

 

“We are hoping to do our part to help all of those affected in these recent storms,” said general manager of Kung Fu Saloon Dallas, Josh Heater. “Part of what makes Texas so great is the camaraderie. We wouldn’t be able to do anything like this without the support of our community.”

 

Additional beneficiaries have included Texas 4000, Habitat for Humanity, the Austin Sunshine Camps, Houston Rescue & Restore, the Human Rights Campaign, Austin Pets Alive, the Children’s Miracle Network, Houston’s Be a Resource for Kids, and the Dallas Cotillion Club to name a few. To nominate an organization for consideration please contact Jessica@kpghospitality.com.

 

Voted ‘Best Game Bar’, Kung Fu Saloon is Texas’s most unique watering hole with vintage arcade games, giant board games and a full bar to quench your thirst. Kung Fu Saloon has been bringing the kid in all of us to life since 2009 with the first location in Austin. Since then, they have expanded to Dallas and Houston with pickle shots, karaoke rooms and Kung Food. The Texas-based company is currently expanding further with their 4th location opening in the Austin Domain area in 2015 and a 5th location in Nashville.

Sean “Diddy” Combs And The Makers Of CIROC™ Ultra Premium Handpick Newest Flavor, CIROC™ Apple Infused Vodka

Sean “Diddy” Combs introduces the world to CÎROC™ Apple Infused Vodka during his appearance tonight on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

 

CÎROC Apple is the sixth flavor in the line extension from the makers of CÎROC Ultra Premium. The newest variant joins the best-selling lineup, which includes CÎROC™ Ultra Premium, CÎROC Pineapple, CÎROC Peach, CÎROC Amaretto, CÎROC Red Berry and CÎROC Coconut.

 

In honor of the launch, CÎROC™ has commissioned American performance painter David Garabaldi to share his creative interpretation of the “forbidden fruit” thematic with audiences in New York and Los Angeles. The artist’s masterpieces will be exposed on larger-than-life wallscapes prominently placed in highly trafficked areas during the month of November. The billboards represent the millions of ambitious dreamers around the country who are passionate and committed to what they are made of. These are the individuals who CÎROC Ultra Premium toasts to every day.

 

In addition to the bicoastal billboard reveal, Sean “Diddy” Combs will host the Emperor’s Ball in New York City to celebrate the launch of CÎROC Apple on October 31st.

 

“CÎROC has always focused on innovation and celebration. Our flavors remain at the heart of our unprecedented success. The new CÎROC Apple combines one of my favorite flavors with the greatest ultra premium vodka,” said Sean “Diddy” Combs, Chairman of Combs Enterprises. “We have created a liquid that everyone will want to drink, whether mixing it into fall inspired cocktails or enjoying it in its purest form, on the rocks.”

 

CÎROC™ Apple boasts a vivid green apple flavor infused with a touch of ripeness and a subtly smooth, crisp finish. The newest variant can be enjoyed shaken and double strained, and also pairs excellently with Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail. The liquid also lends itself well to a variety of twists on more traditional cocktails including the CÎROC Apple Martini, Sangria, Mimosa and Cider. Drawing inspiration from the classic creations, CÎROC Ultra Premium has developed the specialty recipes listed below.
