Starting October 1 and through the entire month, the Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Marlin Bar in Midtown (551 Fifth Ave at 45th Street) is offering the Hibiscus Key Lime Cocktail, a refreshing pink concoction created especially to raise awareness and give back. Priced at $13, for every Hibiscus Key Lime cocktail sold this month, Tommy Bahama will donate $2 to the Garden of Hope & Courage in Florida: a peaceful garden next to the Downtown Naples Hospital Campus that provides a respite from the sterile hospital setting – a place of tranquility and solace for cancer patients, their families, and health care providers.
