Here's my little road trip plan. I'm flying into Tampa Bay on September 30th to visit Pablus and the holy grail of steakhouses, Bern's of Tampa.

You couldn't start your Hukilau trip any better than a bit of time with Pablus and the Amber Love Goddess in their Lagoon Lounge. Makes me want to go there first myself...

I have an entire tray of Korla Pandit slides from his estate!!!!!!!!!

These have never been seen by anyone outside his immediate family I presume. This could be fun to watch eh?

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff



Yes! I had to look up who he was
HERE. Let the mysteries of his slide tray be revealed!

I'll bring an empty tray along for any other images that may show up.

I'm making reservations tomorrow with a long time friend who is one of the top waiters at Bern's.
(My brother in law used to be one of the top dogs there years ago.)

If anyone would like to join us - you'd better PM me now.
Otherwise it will be thejab, myself and Anela Linei.

As an interesting sidenote with ties to Hukilau...

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=5542&forum=1&hilite=Mai%20Kai%20vibes

This wine collection was purchased as a part of a larger lot that started the famous collection of Bern Laxler, the founder of Berns Steakhouse. He and Jim Walter split the wines and Bern started Berns with his half. Berns' collection is the largest collection in the world (that is available to see and purchase).

So, last week, I drove with Palm Farmer Johnny to the Mai Kai to do some music with King Kukulele during the pre-Hukilau press party and Johnny brought a bottle of 1959 from the same collection that had the Mai Kai label on it. That guy always has something up his sleeve. He got so buzzed on the house red that we never opened it, so it sits upon Kern's desk waiting for us to open along with KokaNut's Mai Kai bottle of '63 that he left there 2 years ago.

As a further aside, KK and I were swimming around in the ultra calm Atlantic the next morning and suddenly the King laughs nervously and says "uhhh... a whale...." I looked and about 14 inches from my leg was a giant black shape moving through the water slowly. It was 12 feet long at least. As we backed toward the shore I saw the paddle-like tail and realized that this was 3 Manatees coming over to say hello. Fun stuff.

I told the Manatees about Hukilau and the mom said the kids were too young and then she bit King Kukulele in half.
We sewed him up with uke strings and got him to his plane on time.

More next time on TALES OF THE HUKILAU!!!!

to do a little research on the local bikini fashions



Huuummmmm. I always preferred the "fashions" of Haulover Beach, but I don't think you will see much bikini action there.

Swank - I really NEED to make it to the INN this year. Let's make a date for that side trip.

And I am looking forward to seeing you too, Formica!

I found this funny from the first Hukilau. That is me riding on Crazy Al's back.

Note the Bamboo Ben sticker carefully positioned along Al's rear.

As the MasterCard folks say . . . . . priceless.

We're going! First time to the Mai Kai. I'm not sure how it happened, but we ended up with a large group coming, at least for the Mai Kai part. Even a couple relatives from Denmark will be there.

Randy, that's fantastic! There's going to be quite a cast of characters at this year's Hukilau.

tikibob, it will be so great to see you again! We were at Walt Disney World a few weeks ago, and I thought of you and our trip there together many times.

Roommate question:

Anyone need a bed/a roommate at the Cabana for Sunday night?

Get the wisecracks outta yer system before answering, naughty boys.

My roomie, who is leaving Sunday, will therefore not be staying there that night, and I'd just as soon share a room than not. (That's $50 more bucks for merch and Mai Kai cocktails!).

If you are in the same position (and preferably if you're not a complete stranger to me), let me know via PM. I can move my stuff to your room or you and yours to mine. (Since I'll have a HELLuvalotta crap, I'd prefer the latter, natch!)

We'd need to let the hotel know ASAP so as to free up the room for others and not to be charged for that night.

I have an extra room at the Bahia Cabana with one King bed for Thursday through Sunday night if anyone needs one. Let me know if you want it and I'll call the hotel and cancel my reservation. It's a non-smoking room (or so they say).

I'm sharing Unga Bunga's room so I no longer need mine.

Don't worry Ben, you're involved too.
But if you want to stick a Bamboo Ben sticker on my ass, it's gonna cost you extra.

Well, rumor has it that a couple of old friends might be joining us for the festivities (especially associated with the APE performance).

I won't say much but will post these pictures:



Overheard by one of the above, "The last time we 'got together' I got SUCH a headache!"

Ooooooooooooooooooooo. I know someone will be very excited.

TB
