Another good time at the Tiki Terrace! This time for New Year's Eve. Same format as the anniversary party, it was Kanikapila. Just like a hangloose backyard jam session or a family luau. Ukes, guitars and upright bass joined in with everyone signing classic Hawaiian songs or hula on the dance floor. At midnight the dance floor became a place for everyone to scurry around hugging everyone else and wish them Happy New Year. Great drinks (as usual!) yummy snacks, and fresh orchids to make our own leis helped to make the evening a perfect way to welcome 2007.

It has been said before but I'll say it again, the Zuziak brothers and their wonderful family and staff have a magical place. A little slice of the islands in atmosphere, drinks and food, but most importantly in the aloha spirit that comes out in everyone who shares an evening there together.

If you're ever nearby, don't miss the Tiki Terrace.

Pictures from the party, which included another big tiki raffle from me. Congrats to all the winners!

Big mahalo again Scott and Phil, and I wish you all the best in 2007!

Aloha Josh. Yea, you guys would fit in real good there, definately check it out.

Not too cold yet... dropped from 40's and 50's to 30's... some surf coming Thursday, then we're talking single digits next week. Winter's back.

June can't come soon enough... but at least it is January and not November.
