Okonkuluku!

Mr. Ho coming down to see his lady in NYC on Monday and will be in town for the week - how about a TC ohana hang between xmas and nys? And i need to meet some NYC folks. We've been meaning to get up to Flushing to...king yum's is it? That old place that supposedly serves goog grog in Approved Containers. But, I'd be up to anything. Whats up NYC ohana? How about

Thursday, 12/27 ?

Ho

Lets plan something for the 27th. We have found a place in midtown, Shun Lee's that has excellent Mai Tais, but I'm up for whatever most people want to do.

nice - how is the food? and what about other drinks ? Approved Containers? (disclaimer: i do like the highball glass for my mai tai and generally receive waivers from the Village Elders of Okonkuluku for not using an Approved device for this libation)

We'll be wandering around on the 27th and are definitely up Shun Lee's (or whatever. We certainly don't want to go into rum-and-great-ohana withdrawl.

Mai tais are usually served in old-fashioneds or sometimes fancy cocktails at Shun Lee, but they are mighty tasty . Food is fabulous, a tad pricy, but you certainly get what you pay for.

King Yum is in Queens, and is a fairly short trip (if I'm remembering correctly) from Manhattan. There's also Jade Island on Staten Island. A bit of an adventure, but plenty of great food, fun decor and tasty libations in approved containers.

Oh, man, how I'd really LOVE some NY Chinese food. The stuff here in LA is SOOOO Bad.

Seeing you guys discuss this is making me jealous, but then again, it's probably 10 degrees there

The NYC Ohana have been hard at work lately, performing fun-readiness drills and let's-get-together maneuvers. We are approaching peak performance!

Yes, you shall come hang out, Mr. Ho, and yes, the NYC Greater Metro Area Ohana will represent. I'm hip for Shun Lee's, assuming they're hip to have us (they were doing a private party during our last attempt). We'll hammer out some approved options that hopefully will include approved containers.

Might be down for a meet up...

Keep postin with time and location and well go from there..

Shun lees (if we go we should call first - 212-595-8895) , apt hang, ottos - maybe all of them?

King Yum is an option but a bit of hike - I know the subway gets close to it though.

There's also Zombie Hut in Cobble Hill (Brooklyn). Several of us made it out there once, and it's pretty cool. Definitely approved containers. And don't forget Waikiki Wally's (or Wally's Pacific Catch, or whatever it's called)... they have food and the drinks are good.

I'm sad to say to report that we went to Wally's with visiting friends last Monday and the drinks were not good, the place was freezing and it was kind of a bummer. It's a shame because they designed such a cute place originally....

Wally is changing - lets put it that way.

While it was sorta cool - and worth a stop in to LOOK - or take a photo outside by the Moai its on its way to "changing" - SO stop by, look, take a picture or two and then walk a few blocks down to Ottos. I'm told good things are to come - but thats all I know.

Damn! We will not be around for the next meet up. I know the NY/NJ ohana will show Mr Ho a good time. We spent so much time together over the past few weeks that we are actually starting to have TC withdrawal. We will have to settle for tequila drinks and field mai tais while in Mexico.

As another option, if you want to try a great mai tai or zombie (and if you like well made cocktails in general) try the Flatiron Lounge (19th btw 5 and 6) or the Pegu Club (Houston and W Broadway I think). Neither of these places are tiki, but they both take cocktail mixology VERY seriously. You may have to ask for the tiki drinks, but they sure know how to make them.
