There will be no live cam at this years Hukilau Ben, whew - I wish I could pull that off. Who knows, I'll ask some of the film crews that are going to be there if that's a possibility. The Robert Drasnin performance alone! Ok, now you've got me started - I'll check into this right away, like I've got nothing else to do!

Actually, if the wifi in the ballroom/hotel is like last year, I was planning on doing a live webcam. I can put it up on Swank Pad's tiki bar cam or perhaps use one of the instant messenger feeds or something. I wish I had one of those sweet lightweight notebooks so I could carry it around all over the place and be live walking around the ballroom, and not static. Maybe I can rig up a shoulder bag to use with the laptop I have. Anyone have a better/lighter computer they are bringing? I'll bring a Cd with the software I use and the settings and I can run it on anything.

Update: I will run the tiki bar cam from Hukilau as much as possible. I hope to be able to refresh at about every 5 seconds. That's the best I can hope for. That, or just get on YahooIM with Bamboo Ben and run full speed with sound, only for him!

A note of interest here:

Today's (Oct. 2) New York Times includes an article, in the Travel Section (Section 5) on Fort Lauderdale. Although it doesn't mention the Mai Kai or either of our hotels it does offer some interesting information. Not only that but... the only other thing on the page is an ad for Air Tahiti Nui! Hmmmmmmmmm...

Swanky - If you can look at my previous post about the Safari Thatch Tour you'll see that I updated it. No need to worry! You'll get your chance to see - they have really participated this year for a stellar presentation!!

We have handled that issue this year - the hotel will have an appetiser bar set up near the ballroom, with small portions of finger foods available at reasonable prices for all of your post-mai tai snakin' needs.

We got yer back!

Good article, mahalo for posting. But why do idiot writers ALWAYS feel it needed to add the word tacky?
