Jet Pilot was my theme for the year.

Weds:
-2 jet pilots

Sat:
-1 jet pilot
-1 mai tai
-1 zombie
-1 shrunken head

I decided that after getting so accustomed to the Trader Vic's mai tai and zombie after visiting the Chicago, Emeryville, SF, and Atlanta Trader Vics all in the past year, that I would like to compare the Mai Kai versions.

The shrunken head was picked for my by Dave from Turner newtowrk, who wanted me to hold the mug while he did an interview. I protested that the mug isn't actually a Tiki... but that's showbiz.
At least they sprang for the cost of having a real drink in it at the time!

Damn, I would not have let you on stage if I knew you had all of those cocktails in you!


How do you play so well with seven Mai Kai drinks in your gullett?

Dang!!!

All I remember (really well, anyway...) is the Mystery Bowl!!!

Okay... I actually remember a couple of Black Magics in the bar. And I ordered (and consumed) something so that I could bring a mug home... And then I had something else during the WaiTiki show...

Hey! I Remember My Name, Though!

I have been reading alot of post & praise on all the bands and performers who performed at this year's Hukilau (which is definitely deserved by all), but nothing mentioned about "Slip & the Spinouts" on Thursday night for the meet and greet. These guy's were jammin'. We really enjoyed grooving to some good old Florida Rockabilly/Bluesy beats. Trish and I were out there getting our groove on, cutting some rug trying to break the ice for the crowd.

Nice talking with you Slip. Your one Smoothe Cat. We thought you guys sounded AWESOME!!!!!! Hope your back next year.......

G.

Just now resurfacing for a short bit... my sincerest apologies to anyone at Hukilau who thought I seemed a bit aloof -- what I thought at first was a strangely un-kickable hangover turned out to be the flu. I spent too much of Hukilau, especially at the Mai Kai, in a daze. But oh what an environment to be dazed in! It was a beyond fantastic time, for all the reasons everyone else has laid out already. Personal highlights: Waitiki, Unga Bunga's afterparty (never listen to my party planning tips), listening to Drasnin, Waitiki, meeting Yma Sumac, Waitiki, Black Magic, sharing the Mai Kai with Hanford, Waitiki, the Wreck Bar, buying too much stuff, Waitiki, Waitiki and Waitiki.

Ahhh that is the secret trick of the Villagers of Okonkuluku... no, actually the real question is, "how did we load all that equipment on stage", with seven Mai Kai drinks in my gullett ... !!

So sorry to hear you were not well. I for one would never have guessed it.

So glad you enjoyed our humble offerings. I look forward to next year already!

Ah, but this is because you hadn't met me before -- other TCers can attest that I'm usually a little... livelier... at events. No dancing on the kitchen counter, no f#@king the bear, no riding of giant wooden fertility idols, no risque mistletoe placement demonstrations, no cow udder fondling, no getting bench pressed... I was downright tame at this event. I hope to make up for it at tomorrow's Hooptylau!

*Now* I understand why this year was so, um, tame, Humu2!! Hope you're on the mend, go-go partner!

Where to start with the thanks and the applause? I already went on and on on the Thanks Home Bar Tour thread, so I'll leave that there. But I'll say, if you *EVER* get offered one of these, folks, DO it. The chance to hang out in a relaxed atmosphere is the BEST. My favorite part of my first Chicago Exotica had been the bar tour by bus, so I knew this too would be killer. And it was. Loved sitting next to Casey, who also was FI-nally able to just relax and enjoy himself - yay! Loved meeting Nicole (Tikigimp?) and husband Ken (Crazy Al's twin) - y'all were the cutest couple! Wish I could've hung out with the super cool/super cute Slip more (you guys ROCKED!). Anyway, FAB magical mystical tour. I could listen to Charles Phoenex and King Kuke all night!

HUUUGE thanks to Christie and to James T for having gotten me for the Drasnin gig. I'll name my first-born children after you for that one. Or my next dogs. For me to have sung that music - with Yma Sumac in the audience - well, what's left!?!! The whole show - all the entertainment - was just top-notch. I already raved on the Haole Cats, and I'll add my name to pile of new Waitiki devotees. I plan to set up my hut in the village of Okonkuluku and take many husbands there....

The merch, as usual, top notch. I love the official Hukimerch and my bags were STUFFED with offerings from many lands. You know the new 50 lb limit on your big bag in the airport check-in? Mine was 47.5 lbs!! I'm damned proud of that one. And it didn't include the VERY heavy carry-on, laden with the bulk of the mugs and glasses (and huge chunks of cheapo coral I found on the beach Monday with Pearly Shell and Mean Gene). Thank gawd for bubble-wrap and my remembering to pack LOADS of it, and to pack half-empty bags! My new Chisel Slinger Witco-ish mask with the zazzy background fabric is itching to be mounted.

The Mai Kai? What can I say that hasn't been said 100X. Nothing, except I WILL be there for next year's celebration!! Those people just do it SO RIGHT. Even when they have us in their homes!! And hearing the Martin Denny set in there...ohhhhhhhhhhhh. I said to Gary, the marimba player who'd done the Drasnin gig (and is now a devotee of exotica!), and who came to the Mai Kai for the set, where else is it considered GOOD form to make monkey cries and bird calls DURING a band's performance?? And to throw a sock monkey onstage while they're on?? (Go Inky!!) It was just magical. I was too wired during the Drasnin thing to let myself drift away then, but I got to with the Waitiki boys' Denny set, and it was the *BEST.*

I'll have to edit in a list of all the it-was-great-to-see-you's and other stuff I'm leaving out now later, but I wanted the organizers to know now HOW MUCH I ENJOYED HUKILAU. THANK YOU!!!!!
alice b
