In Sync With the Season

An Absolut-ly perfect holiday weekend continues today with our $6 Absolut special. All flavors. DJ Matt lights up the bar tonight at 10. Never a cover. Always fun. Join us!


There were times when Memorial Day was the official nod to the season of wearing white.

Where did this fable of “only wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day” come from?  The answer is as varied as the opinions on the topic. And of course, as evidenced in the sexy gallery below, most of us have some white undies (men in underwear is the theme of Bacchus Trivia Night on June 5th).

Should you wear white a second before Memorial Day? Of course! Those old tropes are silly. Especially here in Hawaii. And, of course Serial Mom told us it was okay ;-)

For the answer, we found this quote from Dr. Valerie Steele, Director and Chief Curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (MFIT):

“In the late 19th century through the 1950s, more people were entering the middle classes. These nouveau-riche folks were often unaware of the standards of high society, so they were given specific codified rules to follow in order to fit in.” 

One of these rules was the wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

She goes on to say that color isn't as important as style and fabric choices. But we knew thatanyway. :-)

In Waikiki, wear white or whatever color you want, whenever you want. You'll always be in sync with the season at Bacchus!

Join us at Bacchus Waikiki for booze, music and fun. Today, tonight or any day you like. :-)
