BTW, this awesome Bamboo Ben original, I think, is now owned by Mai Kai GM Kern. I think the matching pants went too. Incredible work!

i dunno - maybe want to get that sucker dry cleaned. That looks like a pretty absorbant fabric and those pics look like Bamboo Ben is getting his groove (and sweat) ON!

I've finished uploading my pictures -- almost 450 of them! Here are the links:

Hukilau 2006 (this is the parent folder)


Oh We're Goin... (kickoff at Forbidden Island, the ride to the airport, and watching Martiki's NyQuil kick in at the airport)


Getting Settled (the view from our hotel room, lunch with the APE boys)

Mai-Kai (a quick trip to the Mai-Kai, with lots of pictures of the Molokai bar, dining rooms and gardens)

Bahia Cabana (the Hukilau kickoff at the Bahia Cabana, lots of pictures of TCers)


Tiki Carving (beachside carving by Lake Surfer, Keigs, Basement Kahuna and Crazy Al)

Mermaid at the Wreck Bar (the very crowded Wreck Bar at the Clipper, plus some from-above shots of the lovely mermaid, Tiki Bree)

Bahia Mar (the Friday night shindig, lots more pictures of TCers)

Atlantic Afterparty (pictures from a quick drink-making pitstop at Basement Kahuna's room on our way to the beach)


Mai-Kai (the main event, with pictures of the dancers, Beachbum Berry's Mystery Drink, Waitiki, the Haole Kats, and tons of TCers)


The Beachbum on the Beachcomber (Jeff Berry's seminar on the history of Don the Beachcomber and how his drinks propogated across the country)

Mai-Kai (after being inspired by Jeff's talk, we opted to change our flight so we could go back to the Mai-Kai again)

Thank you so much for the fantastic photo's Humuhumu. I dropped a Martin Denny CD in and felt like I was there. My wife and I hope to make it up to Forbidden Island sometime in the spring to sample those amazing cocktails. Thanks again. Mark @ Jeannette.
