Aloha All- Basically I am a rookie to the hukilau and a virgin to fort lauderdale in general, but my wife and I will be there for our first anniversary and some how i convinced her that this is how we should celebrate! I am just curious if there is anyone out there that has attended in the past or lives in fla and has any suggestions on cool/cheap places to stay, eat, basically be merry. People can contact me at devilfishink@hotmail.com. any info or even suggestions is greatly appreciated....

The Bahia Cabana on the site is very reasonable. The links page has a "Hot Eats" page with lots of side visits.

The Bahia Cabana is an approved place of lodging and inexpensive. About $75 or so a night. Check out the Hukilau website for info, and sign up for the mailing list!!

Hi monkey!

The above suugestions are all great.

As far as eating and being merry go, the Hukilau itself is a really dense event this year, with full schedules of actiuvity from Thursday evening through Sunday night. In fact, we've had to turn away a few terrific offers from great people who have come to us with new ideas for the event - we're just too jam-packed full of exciting things this year! So there will be plenty of merriment at the event.

I would definitely stay at the Bahia Mar hotel, as that is where the majority of the action - aside from the festivities as the Mai Kai and the home bar tour - will be taking place. If that is too pricey, a sure-fire runner-up, as mentioned above, is to try to stay at the Bahia Cabana. If you need to go uber-cheap, there are a few grimy beachside trouist motels a mile or two away from there. Pull off the highway and pick one - if you dare.

There will be eats in the Bahia Mar ballroom this year, and our friend Tikilicious has compiled a list of cool vintage or retro or just plain weird places in the area to eat - see
www.thehukilau.com for details.
