Aloha Everyone!

Ernie Menehune (yes, THAT Ernie Menehune) will be hosting his very own luau at Menehune Village on Saturday, September 30th, 2006 in beautiful Tucson Arizona!

Please note that this is NOT the show that Ernie has at the Kon Tiki, but rather the annual luau that he hosts at his tropical desert oasis, Menehune Village.

It's a full scale luau with hula dancers, drumers, a kalua pig and Ernie...heck even Elvis shows up for this one!

But, it's BYOMT (that's bring-your-own-mai-tai for the acronymicly impaired), but never fear, Plaza Liquors has everything you need for this event!

Soccer Tiki, WooHoo Wahine, tiki-tina, bamboo boyd and the Cheeky Half's will be there (rumor has it even the geico gecko will be there...sorry, inside joke), so c'mon and join the party!

Tickets are $20 per person and include everything but the bevvies, and they're a-goin' fast, so if you are interested in experiencing one of the best, most authentic Polynesian luaus around, please contact Ernie's keyboard player, Larry Armstrong for tickets. He can be reached at (520)490-3279.

Need more convincing? Check out this great thread by the cheeky half's (or is that halves?):
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=20483&forum=1

Experience one of the true legends live and in person before it's too late!

Hope to see you there!

P.S. And if'n you can't make it to this luau, never fear, Ernie next show at the Kon Tiki is scheduled for the last Sunday of October!

Mahalo!

I've got to call Larry and see if there are more tickets, but Becca and I will likely be there, unless she has to work that day. Can't wait!

I had the pleasure of meeting Ernie Menehune at the Menehune Ranch and Village yesterday. What a delightful man and fabulous entertainer! For those fortunate enough to attend the Annual Luau this weekend...what a treat is in store, I'm extremely jealous that I cannot attend!

Mahaloz to Cheeky Half for providing contact information to reach Ernie and a lovely evening afterwards at Kon Tiki!

Here are photo's of Ernie Menehune at Menehune Village doing a television commercial spot for the U.S. Armed Forces.




Evening at Kon Tiki


ALOHA Ernie!

TravelingJones, we had a great time hanging out with you at the KT. Hopefully you will flip, flop, flip this way again. We are going to print out those photos and give them to Ernie at the luau.

We've been really busy with the mosaic thing lately so we haven't had a chance to check in with tc and keep updated on this thread. We have a van for transport to and from the luau, Louie has double stocked the bar and Marcos is ready and anxiously awaiting everyone's arrival.

The Mr is a bit under the weather so I'm loading him up with Advil and echinacea tea. Hopefully I can revive him enough, so that he will be able to come out and play tonight.

See you soon!

Woo!

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight. Are we meeting for drinks or dinner? What time are we meeting? I'm guessing around 7pm. If someone can give me a call, I'd appreciate it, as I'm not going to be near a computer at all for the rest of the day. 520-390-8245 is my cell.

Thanks!

Chris
