Been there and as usual a great time at FI. Started with a Painkiller that was delicious. Went out back and the food looked yummy but I had had a big lunch but people were chowing down. on the pork and grilled chicken. The gelato was so gooood. I tried the macadamia nut chi chi which was great along with the chocolate banana that was soooo goood. Had two Island Mai Tais and tried the Kona passion fruit beer. It was crisp and tasty. The Tahitian dancers were excellent. Very entertaining. Martin, Jessica, Stephanie and Melissa were providing the usual high quality service and drinks. Dr. Tikimojo was the sole Tiki vendor but had a great variety of items. You could also pick up FI shirts and mugs. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Sorry you couldn't make it, but maybe at the next FI luau.

That was a mighty fine Luau!

Thanks very, very much to everyone who attended- We know you have a choice when choosing your Luau provider, and we thank you for making Forbidden Island your preferred Luau!

Summer may officially start now!


Mike took lots of pix, so I'm sure he'll post some here soon.

The China Clipper gelato was delicious! Can we put the merch table next to it next time so I can go back for seconds.

Oh the gelato. I had two full servings, and I think one of my housemates put away three (on top of cocktails and lunch). I hope it was successful enough to make it happen again -- I didn't get to experiment with making floats out of cocktails and gelato!

A-LO-HA!! The Luau was awesome and we had loads of fun!!
Thanks to all who came for this, despite the fact that there were at least four other Bay Area festivals the same day. Thanks to our Beer Sponsor - Kona Lager through Horizon Bevarage Co - whose debuted Lilikoi Brew was light, crispy and delicious. It'll definitely be on FI's tap selection real soon. Thanks also to Geleteria Naia, whose custom FI drink- flavored gelato was frikkin amazing!! The dance troupe was top notch, as was the Fire-Dance performance by Erin of FirePixie.com. Good to have Dr TikiMojo vending as well. What would a Luau be without some great stuff to buy?!
Thanks again... You can be sure this will become an annual event.
