If there's any doubt we don't live on an inland sea here's a webcam shot from the Michigan side today...

Not exactly tropical but definately surfable... Peak wind gust of 55 mph out of the west...

55mph... don't you Florida folks just about call that tropical storm force winds?

Just another fall day here in the Midwest!

Flounder can bring a hurricane up here any day... the surfers will welcome it with open arms if it means waves...

We would seriously consider going to Chicago if the main event is at the Kona Kai.

If Kona Kai, Hala Kahiki, Chef Shangri-la, AND Trader Vic's are involved, "A". If not, "B", because it would literally take all four rolled into one to in any way even compare to the sheer majesty of the Mai Kai. Mai Kai is the tops in the country, hands down.

a. have Hukilau 2005 in Chicago and Hukilau 2006 in Fort Lauderdale

Comments: For the fifth year anniversary, an event HAS to do something new and different and SPECIAL. In addition to the change in location, how about a luau in Chicago to honor the occasion?

I think HukiLau will only be HukiLau in Ft Lauderdale!
My vote is to name it something else if it will be some place different.

I know I wouldn't be able to come to Chicago for an event so opting for choice A would, for me at least, mean no big tiki event to attend in 2005.

I am now sad.

Being a Floridian, I vote for "B" for the convenience factor (plus the MaiKai is AMAZING!).
Being a tiki-phile, "A" would give me a reason to see some of the big classics that I have not had a chance to see yet. But "A" would also leave me with less cash on hand, and my chances to go would be reduced due to the distance factor... Then it would be even for the people who trekked down here and braved the hurricanes with us.
Hmmmm. I am torn. LIke a moist paper towel.

Hukilau in 2005? I say Yes - either location would be fine with me.

But overall, I would lean towards Chicago, as there are a few tiki places there that I haven't visited yet. Besides, the first Hukilau was in Atlanta, the second in Fort Lauderdale, and I like the idea of it being an event that can float and travel across the country. Taking a vacation to the same place every year seems a bit boring to me.

We should really do Chicago. It is an awesome city and would be a good change of scenery (and offers many venues of tiki interest). Then the Mai Kai would be that much more when we return for their anniversary.

I'm up for chicago, alot shorter distance for me to haul tikis to. I,ll still head down to florida anyway. that would make it a more relaxing vacation down there without a truck full of stuff. plus I love the hala kahiki, so much to see in chicago.

this is all funny to me because i spent the weekend a)on the phone with the mai kai, and b)with an event coordinator at the kona kai(chicago)......because next year, me and the wahine are getting hitched at one of the two!!!!.....so yeah, either or for our vote......
