""The Hukilau horde was dominated by white 30-somethings and aging boomers -- no surprises there." - New Times"

What? No mention of the pallid, oft-vintage-spectacled, frequently tattooed and/or interestingly hair-dyed Gen-Xers?!? I am insulted!!!

In other news, I too noticed the amazing upcoming COSMIC CONJUNCTION...50 years of the MaiKai AND Jaxson's Ice Cream!!! Dang!!!

We'll have to arrange a mini-Hukilau side trip to Jaxson's, no doubt. We can gift them with a special license plate or something, maybe? Needless to say, a monstrously huge and mind-blowingly delicious TROUGH of Jaxson's unforgettable dairy goodness was our last-night-in-Florida splurge...oof. I am STILL full. ZAZZ-O-RAMA!!!

And by the way, ZAZZ-O-RAMA!!! is also exactly how I feel about Sven making Hukilau next year AND another Unga party at the hilarious 70's-bachelor-pad Bahia cabana penthouse (think of VERY low-rent Hugh Hefner or something....straight out of "Boogie Nights". With terrifying artwork. And a stunning set of chocolate-brown bathroom appliances...including a bidet. Really. I am still not sure I wasn't seeing things.)

Looking forward to it already,

mr and mrs tikivixen

I expect to see all my villagers of Okonkuluku there, and there will be multiple watermelons sacrificed in honor of the 50th of the Mai Kai!

Hey! I resemble that remark!

Haole Kats!!! are certainly hoping to be a part of the festivities next year. All y'all were so nice to us, and it was definitely one for the record books. Loved meeting Robert Drasnin, those Wacki Waitiki boyz, Slip and his Spinout crew, The Intoxicators -- really nice line-up, all great folks.

I think a Crazed Mugs wit' da Kats set needs to be fit in there somewhere, too, next year. One of my fave moments. I could listen to Pablus sing all night. BUY THEIR
CD!

I think James and I can work out a Crazed Mugs and Haole Kats segment as an addition to the 50th celebration. We are already planning several elements of the weekend so keep checkin' Tiki Central for updates!

Poppa mmm Mai Kai, Poppa mmm Mai Ma Kai

Now *THAT* would be a "different direction" all right from Mr. Drasnin's orchestra!!!

Just some thoughts about next year (please look past my NERD factor):

Somehow, someway, there's got to be a drink making contest next year and some "organized" parties. Could be like what they did one year at Tiki Oasis, where people throw parties in their rooms and label each room a drink, so you go to the Mai Tai room, zombie room, etc, and try out different things. I went to a sci-fi convention for the first time last year, and as as goofy as it was, it had some great elements -- one being parties held in different rooms (with different themes) and the parties were listed in the event program. So I think some sort of drink contest/organized room party thing could work... Imagine looking at the program and going to the Les Baxter room to try an "Oasis of Dakhla" cocktail!!!
I heard the home bar tour was a big success, and it was very similar to what I'm talking about. But being on Sunday afternoon, I know a lot of folks who had to fly out that day (myself included). If there was some "advertised" parties in the hotel, people from away could host events too!

Or maybe the drink contest could be separate from the organized parties, and more "official," with real bartenders, where people submit recipes. I don't know how, but I think a drink contest could be a big hit! With the winning recipe being featured the next night or something.

Ok I'm really not THAT big of a nerd, but also at the sci-fi convention, they had lots of panel discussions, presentations, and demonstrations. I thought a highlight of Hukilau was the slide show. I'd love to see more of that sort of thing, some on a big scale (some experts on Exotica, for example, giving a panel discussion; or a history of tiki mugs; or James could do a great panel based on the "road trip") and some could be smaller events, that repeat throughout the day. I met someone at the Sat Night after party (sorry, can't recall the name) and he had made some terrific Pimento liquor. I told him about our success with making Falernum. Well jeez, imagine a few 15 minute demonstrations about those two topics. Or an open forum about thrifting. Imagine the hilarious stories. Or imagine if Drasnin had held a panel discussion to talk about his career. That sort of stuff.

Don't get me wrong, Hukilau 2005 was EXCELLENT. But there was just so much expertise on display by everyone at Hukilau, that I'd love to see more of it brought out into the open (and not just discovered at 4am Sunday morning at an after party when you're already regrettin' the number of people you DIDN't get to meet).

I just thought I'd throw out some ideas that our group has discussed since the glorious event. I'll stop rambling now.

I, Zombie

Tiki Kiliki + Mai Kai = Magic! To be honest, if I lived on the east coast I wouldn't miss ANY of Kiliki's Tiki Torch Night events, so OF COURSE it's a no-brainer to make the effort to be there when the Mai Kai asks her to plan their 50th Anniversary event!





AMEN SISTAH! WHOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! She's amazing, isnt she? lol!

And it was SO GREAT seeing you and your Honey last weekend! You're both as adorable and wonderful as ever!
Hugs n kisses from Steve and me!

This is a great idea, and I know that we, of Waitiki, were remiss in our hospitality as far as hosting parties went. As the Mayor, I declare that will change for next year. We were not sure of what to expect, what was expected of us, etc. in that regard. Sorry!

Imagine looking at the program and going to the Les Baxter room to try an "Oasis of Dakhla" cocktail!!!

Oh yes, indeed!

I could back that. Actually, we have our own band drink menu. We would definately have to offer those items at our party. See our website,
www.watiki.com for details...


And yes, the planting has begun in the watermelon fields. We are hoping for a bumper crop for next year.
