Wild Wild Life

Posted By on Thu, Aug 27, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Don't wanna be owl by yourself Friday night? No worries, mate. There's a big ol' barn party in Bayside and you're invited. Barntini – martinis in the barn – the annual fundraiser for the Jacoby Creek Land Trust and the Humboldt Wildlife Care Center is set to raise the roof this Friday, Aug. 28 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Kokte Ranch and Nature Preserve.

Sip martinis or cosmos made with Farm Horse Vodka from Blue Lake's Dutch & Dewey Distillery. Or (and?) partake of mojitos, home-brewed beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. Rub elbows with birds of a feather while you crunch on tacos from the deluxe taco bar (featuring all fresh and local ingredients including meat grown right on the ranch and handmade tortillas), indulge in barbecued oysters, then shake a tail feather or two to the sweet tunes of Beatles tribute band Silver Hammer. You can also try your hand at bocce, chat with friends around the fire pit or a take a walk down by the creek.

Food, fun, games, music, dancing and drinks, all benefitting a great cause? Hay, hay, hay! Not a bad way to spend a late summer evening in Humboldt. Purchase advance tickets ($30) at Wildberries or online at and, or get them at the door ($35).
