Lake Surfer,

Looking forward to seeing you at Hukilau 2006!

Every year something very special happens to make Hukilau a memorable event. This year some might find it's one of our many historic seminars, the LIVE Tiki Carving on Fort Lauderdale Beach or the Beach Bum Berry Mixology Seminars. For some, it might be the appearance of an exotic mermaid that will once again dance in the waters at the Yankee Clipper!

When the Yankee Clipper first opened in 1956, mermaids were employed and swam at scheduled times during the day to be viewed through the porthole windows in the Wreck Bar on the ground level while hipsters and tourists of the day sipped on cocktails. Hukilau will make history as the first time since 1962, a mermaid can once again be seen through those same windows on Friday, October 6, 2006 at 5:00pm sharp. The mermaid is just as special as the event itself, a Hukilau veteran - Bre-elle Ishtar. Some of you might remember Bre-elle as one of our event coordinators in 2003 along with her most talented husband Tristan. Come and enjoy this historic event!

Here's a picture of Bre-elle in the costume she will wear in October:



Just 4 short weeks away to the Tiki event of the year!

Bre-elle as a mermaid -- Fantastic!

Hukilau has come a long way from its early years. Back in 2003, I was in the Wreck Bar late one evening with others, waiting for the mermaids to appear, but this arrived instead.



Fortunately, the bar was well stocked, and our temptations were soon directed towards the drinks rather than the sea creature behind the porthole window.

Since we are talking about the Wreck Bar, I thought I would share with you this record LP I purchased in Pittsburgh last month - 'The Unpredictable Bonnie Anderson Wrecks 'The Wreck ' - recorded live at the Wreck Bar at the Yankee Clipper hotel - site of Hukilau and live mermaid appearances! (a search on Tiki Central shows that JonPez and TraderPup own this LP too!)



This is mainly a comedy album, with many risque jokes and songs - although Bonnie does sing the Hukilau song! To make the LP even better, it was personally autographed by Bonnie on Feb 28, 1978

Here are some closeups of the front cover, and a photo of the Yankee Clipper from the back cover.









Less than a month to Hukialu .... let the fun times continue!

What are the chances that a Florida local (who looks like Breelle!) would just happen to have a very glam mermaid costume. Not to mention that she is a tikiphile from way back. Here's to the 50th! I will be there at 5pm to share in this special tribute............

The Mai Kai dinner shows are officially sold out. If you would like to have dinner only you can make a reservation and they will bump you into the show if there is a cancellation.

Hey!

I got my Waitiki email update tonight and, in it, read that the guys are headed down to Ft. Lauderdale to perform at the Mai Kai for Hukilau. Can it be? Is it true?

A quick check on the Tiki Central Tiki Music forum confirms it. Wheeeeeeeee!!!

Hukilau 06 just keeps gettin' better an' better! I am getting SO EXCITED!

It's true or else my name isn't Paris Hilton! Can't wait to see everyone, hear everyone, and sacrifice some local produce on stage. tMox is currently investigating the local watermelon crop.

DOn't forget to check out the 9/27 webcast; you can even rent a commercial spot!
