Hmmm...really a shame I won't be alive when they celebrate their 101st anniversary, when it'd actually PAY to drink there.

Mahalo to Dave, Kern, Pia and everyone at The Mai-Kai for another great anniversary party. There was a line out front when we arrived at 5, but we were quickly seated and had a lovely time. They kept The Molokai close to its seated capacity all night, which made for a very comfortable experience.

The food and drinks were top-notch, as expected. I highly recommend the new sushi rolls (I had the spicy shrimp). A huge portion and very well presented. Of course, the cocktails were the star ...


Cobra's Kiss and Special Planter's Punch


Black Magic

And the music of Rose-Marie set the mood perfectly ...


A highlight was legendary Polynesian performer Nani Maka's impromptu dance during one of Rose-Marie's songs.

Looking forward to next year's 60th bash!

Until then, I'm sure there will be lots of 60th anniversary events. There's also a special new mug by Tiki Diablo, available now in The Mai-Kai Trading Post ...
