I'm hoping to be there. I'm getting married at the Mai Kai the following Saturday (pending final $$$ decisions right now) so I'm not 100% sure that we'll be able to afford to go. Plus, my doctor friend in VA is tentatively scheduling her wedding for the 7th.....

Hukilau IS October 5 - 8.

Christie has a of of new ideas for this year, and we've been discussing those, and looking at some interesting new options for lodging as well.

It might be a few weeks or more before there is an announcement - which Christie will make as soon as we've got things nailed down - but the event is happening and the dates are 98% soild.

Looks great! Should we sign up again if we were on the mailing list before?

Aloha everyone,

It looks like Hukilau might just begin on the 4th this year with a limited ticketed Rum tasting at the Mai Kai to be held in Somoa and Tahiti - the rear dining areas.

James is right, I'm working on several workshops, booksignings and lots of gatherings this year. This will be a Hukilau like no other. The Mai Kai family and I met last week and discussed the beginning 'til end. Of course, they are the stars this year as we are trying to bring as much history to light for the 50th Anniversary.

Dave Levy, operating owner, just agreed to allow me to show the Mai Kai family photo albums in an exclusive show just for Hukilau 2006. These are albums dating back to the 50's that few have ever seen with photos of the wedding between Mrs. T and Bob, rum tastings in Tahiti, photo shoots of the staff and mixologists at work - I wanted to make them a part of Hukilau and I'm glad they feel confident about showing them to the public this year. This is a once in a lifetime showing so we are truly fortunate.

Just try to hold out for a couple more weeks and the site will unfold.

Kiliki was in charge of Hukilau 2005. I did the online reservations coding and helped with that, but she managed the event. Hukilau was created by both of us and every aspect done by both of us until 2005.

With her living in South Florida now and both of us feeling that Hukilau's home is at the Mai Kai because of their gracious attitude, and my lessening interest in the stress of this big event, we came to an aggreement whereby Kiliki has complete control of Hukilau.

Hukilau is a huge undertaking. It has always been hard to find people willing to spend the time and energy needed to make it happen. It ends up being the job of the organizer only. There is no money in the bank to work with and though it always seems ready to, it has never made any money. It is a labor of love. Kiliki and I were the only ones doing that labor, and now she is doing it alone. She has gotten some great help from Casey, James, Chip and Andy, Tikilicious, Pia, Kern, Liz Lang, and others. That's important.

Kiliki is undertaking this monumental task of creating a big party with limited resources. She's shown herself capable, and deserves all the help and support the ohana can give her. I'll continue to offer my advice and help where I can, and I hope we all can make this year better than ever and maybe even easier.

Thanks to all who have traveled far to attend and support Hukilau. It is a magical time and I look forward to Hukilau 2006. Remember, Hukilau may not be here again, the Mai Kai may not be here for their 60th Anniversary, your friends may not make the trip next time, it's always important to take these rare opportunities. Appreciate them. Don't let the magic of life slip by.

Thanks for the post Swanky. And without the continued support of those mentioned and many others, Hukilau would not continue.

Like Swanky said, it is a labor of love. He and I have gone through so much together but the amazing relationships that we've built through this event are unmatched. That's why Hukilau exists today.

Swanky, look forward to toasting with you this year - Hukilau's 5th Anniversary and of course the Mai Kai's 50th!

Being new to the forum, I'm really looking forward to a weekend in Ft. Lauderdale. A few friends and I are planning a quick trip from Orlando in a week or so to spec out the location and accomodations. Any suggestions on a hotel? Plans for a hotel room-crawl type event?

And if they dancers should break it, I know a couple of guys who can fix it good as new.
