It saddens me to read the posts on the spectacular Hukilau that is about to take place. The canceling of the Bahia Mar on Friday, the division of Ohana lured by the promise of free and fantastic parties off site, and the tarnish it puts on the last event of what has become a tradition for me and Jungle Jim. Perhaps good rum, a midnight swim, and great music will bring us all together again, and rally us behind this final gathering of wonderful people. As you all know, I only show up on TC when I feel it's important. So here's my invitation:

Room 130 will, as always, continue to have its doors open after the main events to be the place for great music, great memories, and great gatherings of our Tiki family. This year, more than ever, we look forward to seeing you all on the balcony--and perhaps, once again, welcome the rising sun on Saturday with an acoustic Exotica salute. The Haole Cats, Waitiki, Crazy Al, Pablus & The Crazed Mugs, I Belli di Waikiki, Combo Maholo, and other great musicians have made this a wonderful party after the party for many years now. THe FOM flag flew proudly on our door, and the community rum bar was a site to behold. Room 130 was never a distraction from the Hukilau, rather, it was an enhancement to those of us who couldn't bear to go to sleep and see the fun end.

Jungle Jim and I stand behind our Hukilau family, and hope any rifts can be mended so that this last event (boo hoo) is hopefully the best event ever. Perhaps in the true spirit of Aloha, Kreepytiki might find it in their hearts to bring their show to the Hukilau, rather than cannibalizing it. I'm sure their intentions are good, but the execution is unfortunate. Joining forces might be the wise and just thing to do.

Mahalo and see you soon!

Jungle Jim & Jennifer

I don't know the difference between the Mar and Cabana since I have never been there before but I read the announcement as re-locating the event from the Bahia Mar to the Bahia Cabana and not canceling it?

Yes, it is merely is a relocation. Its just means we all get a great intimate show, bobbing in the pool or overlooking from the upstairs balcony.

As Christie announced, same time:new location.

I love bands Cabana poolside on Thursday nights. We get the luxury to do it twice this year. Ohana in the Cabana house!

Jennifer & Jim,
So very well said. I just want both of you to know that your unselfish devotion every Hukilau of opening up your room and rooftop patio to all of us during the event is always appreciated and is one of the highlights year after year. Your parties have always been the true " Hukilau After Party" as anyone who has attended in the past will attest. May the Tiki Gods bless both of you for your wonderful kindness. Myself and the rest of the Kats will (as always) be there to support/play and enjoy your invitation. Looking very forward to seeing you both soon. Mahalo...Aloha.....
Joe/Haole Kats

Jennifer....

Great sentiments. Being that I've never been to Hukilau, my involvement in this one, speaking with Kristie and everyone else over the past 9 months has made me realize what an undertaking it is, and how special it is to everyone. At least now I can look up from the stage and see that famous F.O.M flag I've been hearing so much about

I'll be toting the b ongos around in search of room jams. So all you muzos playing room jams...if you need bongo accompaniment....I'll be around.

I think this whole thing is being a bit overplayed and overdramatized. The thing at the Mar needed to be cancelled years ago and, as now, the whole entertainment schedule moved to the Cabana. That's what's been done. The Mar's highbrow minimums are ridiculous for anything short of a society wedding. So now we have the same great entertainment schedule, but in the comfort zone of the Cabana and the Clipper. I'm personally more stoked about it now. As for the thing in the hot parking lot across town, no thanks. You could find Elvis in hiding and bring him there and I still wouldn't make it. I wanna hear Tikiyaki and have a float lounge/swimming pool on hand!

Well said, all. And I agree with you BK--now we can really immerse ourselves in the Tiki experience. It's going to be one helluva party!

Aloha Ohana!

Well, I will be at the Cabana the whole night; I didn't even have to think about that.

I can't wait for the hectic, crazy, unplugged pool party! Never has a group of adults acted more like children. I fit in soooo nicely.

Tho I do have one problem, King Kuk took my obnoxiously loud Hawaiian swim trunks last year. Damn.

So are there any votes for a bathing suit optional pool party?

Tiki Bob

P.S. I know one person who will be bathing suit optional IF he shows up in MY swim trunks!

That was sooo funny. Fortunately there was good audience at that rodeo thus keeping the thrown riders from smashing their heads on the sides of the concrete rodeo rails.

As Christie says:

Yee-Haw!

Looking forward to seeing you guys aqain. I will be going to ALL the after parties. I will be trying not to sample every drink handed to me. Gotta keep the keel even. It's all good. It's always good to be in the company of Jim and Jennifer, and the many Hukilau regulars.

Aloha all , Jim and Jen , you are so kind to open your space and hearts to us again. I also feel that the relocation is a positive happenstance . (plus I won't have to "dress up"!)While I loved the ballroom setting and elegance of Friday nights at Hukilau, the warmth of the cabana happenings were always the top to me..see you SOON !! Greg
