GatorRob how was it??
Spectacular! First off, I was completely blown away by the sheer size of the place. You can read about it all you want, but seeing is believing. The mood, the music, the lighting... everything was perfect. I won't re-hash what everyone has said about this place already, but it was everything I hoped it would be. We spent time in the bar, had a great dinner and watched the show. And blew a LOAD of cash! Holy cow! All of this don't come cheap, but it was worth every penny. And I'd do it again (and will!).
My only real disappointment of the evening (and it's a minor nit-pik) was with the Mai Tai. I should have searched TC first, because others have described it. Had I read that, I would have ordered something else. It was not the classic recipe, but had grapefruit and pineapple juice and precious little rum.
We got there early (had the kids with us)at 2-for-1 happy hour. Maybe they hold back on the rum at happy hour? Downed two of those quickly with no "happy feeling". Let me tell you, two of MY Mai Tais will definitely get you happy. Later over a pupu platter, I had a 151 swizzle. MUCH better.
Question: Do they still serve the Mystery Drink? I couldn't find it on the menu.
Overall, a memorable night. I was glad my kids got to go and they had a great time, but next visit I'm hoping it's the wife and I with some adult friends so I can spend more time in the Molokai bar!
