Remember the Catalina Wine Mixer from Step Brothers? It Actually Happened This Weekend


Unfortunately, Will Ferrell did not show up.

If you remember the 2008 Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly comedy Step Brothers, you’re probably fond of one of the film’s biggest inside jokes.

The Catalina Wine Mixer, which has lived on in Internet culture as one of the most quotable fictional events of all time.Well, guess what Dales and Dragons, a real-life Catalina Wine Mixer event, hosted by the Descanso Beach Club happened this weekend on Catalina Island in California on Sunday.

Tickets started at $35, and the event featured live bands, DJs, gourmet food, and fine wine, as well as The Dan Band, a comedic singing duo that has been featured in multiple Will Ferrell movies.

Guests were even able to take helicopter rides back and forth, courtesy of Island Express Helicopters. 

Did we just become best friends with the folks who run the Descanso Beach Club? I think so.


Don’t worry if you weren’t able to snag tickets. It looks like Catalina Island will be doing it all again next year.
