Not sure what organizers this may be, I have a feeling this may come to a surprise to a majority of those that put on Exotica and are in early idea planning for 2005. TK you and Swanky did such an awesome job this year despite the hurricane. I would actually love to see you do it in Atlanta if any place other then Ft. Lauderdale as I have never been there as yet. But I know I missed out on going to the Mai Kai so I would love to see it back there in 2005.

Any way we can have the 2005 Hukilau in Florida, but not during hurricane season? What if we have it a little further inland? Just some thoughts...

"we throw our nets out into the sea..."

There is no "sea" in Chicago.

I vote Ft. Lauderdale!

BTW - Hurricanes aren't a given.

Jeanne was an anomaly, not the norm.

You could pick dates within that time slot for 25 years and probably never see anything more than an afternoon shower.
And me, Bamboo Ben and C'Al on the beach, loaded and laughing.

(Although yesterday we had a tornado cruise through town and drop a few more trees. )

No Chicago! Keep Hukilau in Florida at the Mai Kai. Like some others said, do it maybe November at the end Of Hurricane season, when the weather and temp are much better.

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! I *loved* Exotica and my first trip to Chicago, and I *loved* Hukilau III and my first trip to the Mai Kai. Getting to do both cities again in grand tiki style would be WONderful!!

I vote "a."

But my second choice "b" won't leave me sad. The Mai Kai is now one of my favorite places in the world!

Now if only I could get Oasis moved from Mother's Day and into the summer when school's out.......

a. have Hukilau 2005 in Chicago and Hukilau 2006 in Fort Lauderdale

There's already plenty of events in California.

I don't see why Exotica and Hukilau can't join forces. I mean, Exotica didn't even happen this year. (That is most definitely NOT meant as a slam against Exotica organizers. It's not easy to put these things together, and everyone has day jobs, etc.) Joining forces could yield amazing results. Plus: Chicago rules!

Yes. Chicago.

1. Three tiki hot spots... Trader Vic's, Hala Kahiki and Chef Shangri-La. Oh, let's not forget Aku Hall either (though I've yet to visit)

2. A major metropolis with potential for a huge draw TC and non TC people

3. Two airports (three if you count Milwaukee 80 miles to the north) to which airfare is pretty reasonable plus Amtrack for the more adventurous. Right off of major interstates which stretch to all reaches of the country. Makes it easier if we have to evacuate from a hurricane... you can go north, west, and south...

4. Chicago is beautiful in the summer and fall. Lower humidity than Florida, lower UV ratings for our fairer skinned ohana...

5. Lake Michigan is an inland sea... I frequently surf it. The lakeshore is beautiful... North Avenue Beach, Oak Street Beach... Navy Pier and the ferris wheel, harbor boat trips...

6. Some of the best shopping in the world, for those who indulge in it, along the Magnificent Mile... rivals New York and Beverly Hills if not beats it...

Yes, Fort Lauderdale has the tropical atmosphere which makes for a great location (not like I got to experience much of it this year) but Chicago would not dissapoint. And as been mentioned... put the heads of Exotica and Hukilau together good things could happen...

I Vote:

Chicago is always alot of fun plus it will make going back to Fort Lauderdale even more enticing!
