Aloha to All,

I started this thread as a way for Hukilau attendees to post and/or communicate with others about the activities of Hukilau 2006.

I got in yesterday (Wed) and observed first hand all the hard work Kiliki and her team are putting forth for this event. It is amazing just how much detail there is in getting an event like this produced.

We had a nice get together last night at the Mai Kai where all the early arrivers converged to kick things off. Floor show, drinks, old and new ohana, and the atmosphere provided a great start for the event.

I Bella de Waikiki arrived last night and are excited to be performing at Hukilau once again.

Basement Kahuna arrived with many of his thrift store finds (many for sale) and, more importantly, some of his beautiful carvings. Other vendors are also gearing up for the Tiki Bazaar which will be bigger than previous years.

BK also received a tremendous honor last night when a nearly 5 foot tiki he carved and gave to the Mai Kai was unveiled. It was placed in the enclosed garden adjacent to the stage. It is in the center of the garden and is striking in the setting amongst the waterfall, lava rocks and other various tikis. I will try to get a picture up.

Kiliki and BK are off early this morning to the local NBC affiliate to do a segment on the event. They are taking also sorts of clothing, artifacts, mugs, exotica music, etc. to show during the interview. What a great way to get the general public interested in our passions.

Things officially start at 10 a.m. so everybody get ready! And to all the attendees, get some comments and photos up for the ohana that is unable to make it (this year) to The Hukilau.

Balmy regards,

TB

We arrived early yesterday and the front desk at the yankee clipper gave us a flyer about a Kava Lounge at sunrise and A1a that serves real Vannauutu Kava, we had to check it out, it was unbeleivable, it was called Kahuna Awa Kava lounge, they serve authentic Kava in ceremonial bowls for $25, we drank a bowl between the 2 of us and got completly blasted,we could hardly walk back to the hotel, hell of an experience,I recommend everyone check this spot out
