For those into the Mid-Century architechture, the Mai-Kai's architect, Charles McKirahan, has many great buildings still in the Fort Lauderdael area, and on your way to the hotel from the airport and especially on your way to the Mai-Kai. Make a stop and see some great stuff!

THANK YOU !!

That was exactly the type of information I was trying to research on my own. As soon as I saw that picture of the Premiere Hotel I tried to get out of my existing Tue-Wed hotel reservation to stay there.

Unfortunately it was a 72 hour cancellation policy.

The Ocean Manor is home to Barefoot Beach Tiki Bar (just like most tiki bars in FL - there is no tiki). Huge Thatch bar right on the beach great location for drinks on the beach. They focus on cold bear and frozen drinks - if you are out wandering around.

The quick way to see lots of Mid-Century buildings, and Charles McKirahan buildings is to head up A1A toward the Mai-Kai as usual. be sure to notice the Ramada Sea Club (formerly Jolly Roger)on your way, and then turn left on Bayshore. Drive around those streets and find the Manhattan and PRemiere and others. Come back through there in the evening to see the neon!

If your coming down be sure to stock up on sunscreen. Even though we are in the time of year where its supposed to rain every day - weather has been sunny and dry. No rain till Saturday or Sunday, then its only a 30% chance!

Any Pass or Wristband from The Hukilau will gain you entry to Sunday at the Mai-Kai.

The time has changed to 3:00pm - 5:00pm though so please take note!



You're killing me with these cancellations and schedule changes. Now I'll have to miss Sunday entirely.



+1. We check out of our hotel at 11 and have to figure out something to do until going to the airport. Our flight leaves at 5, so we'll get no time at the MaiKai now. I was actually looking forward to having somewhere to go after checking out for the first time instead of just wandering around like a lost soul.

Don't forget the Unofficially Official Kick-Off party at the Mai Kai wednesday (tomorrow) night!

I'll be the guy in the Aloha shirt with a drink in hand. Probably both hands. You can't miss me!

My suitcases are bursting at the seams with tikis bound for Hukilau 2011!

If you enjoy tiki decor from days gone by, masks and carvings the likes of what you would find in a Trader Vic's, Don the Beachcomber, Kon Tiki and even the Mai Kai, please stop by and visit my booth! Wallhanging pieces inspired by the islands of the South Pacific, all individually hand carved and hand painted by yours truly.

Looking forward to seeing everyone... safe travels to all!

The Hukilau will be in full swing in less than 48 hours. Check out our exhaustive event preview with video clips of many of the performers ...

Ughh... The Mai Kai kicked my ass last night. But what an incredible first visit.

The veterans weren't kidding when they said the "Strong" drinks were STRONG. This California Tikiphile has been humbled.

Must recover quickly so I can return in 6 hours. (And Hukilau hasn't even started).

Man, the place was virtually empty last night (Tue) at 9pm. I guess that won't be the case for long.

Thanks for the warning on the strong drinks! Will pace ourselves!

Also a tip for curbing hangovers is to have some pedialite before and after your drinking. That's from a hard partying roller derby gal

Ha! Tell us what you drank last night. Individually, they're not THAT strong really, but if you're into more than you can count on one hand then...

Empty at 9pm on a weekday night is normal. But once Hukilau starts? Wall to wall people. Just TRY to get a seat in Samoa or Tahiti when the bands are there. Have fun. I'm not there this year (first time in a while), but instead heading to your coast on Saturday for a week of fun and debauchery.
