The $%*@$ Catalina Wine Mixer from 'Step Brothers' is now a real thing

It's happening—where else?—on Catalina next month

It's the fucking Catalina Wine Mixer!

The legendary scene from Step Brothers, when Brennan (Will Ferrell) and Dale (John C. Reilly) reunite for an epic performance of their classic songs "Boats 'N Hoes" and "Por Ti Volare," has remained confined to the big screen, rife with quotable and cringe-worthy moments. Until now. The Santa Catalina Island Company is turning the scene into real life, and you're invited.

On September 13, the (actual) Catalina Wine Mixer will be held at Catalina Island's Descanso Beach Club, featuring live bands (including the Dan Band—you know, the hilarious cover band from Old School and The Hangover), DJs, gourmet food and plenty of wine. General admission tickets, which include a souvenir wine glass and all day access, are $35 ($20 for children 12 and under). You can upgrade to a VIP admission—private bar, private wine tasting and complimentary food stations—for $100, and if you're gunning for baller status, there's an option to buy cabana packages as well.

Make Brennan and Dale proud.
