So excited (and relived) that we were able to make this year our FIRST Hukilau!

Making plans/reservations now . . . we would LOVE to know what time some of the other West Coast Ohana are making thier Mai Kai reservations for.

I'm sure we will meet a ton of fantastic new friends at Hukilau, but we'd love to dine with some friendly faces as well.

Reply here or shoot me a PM.

Another great Hukilau mug! It will look very nice sitting next to my '06 mug.

The wife and I are all booked up as of today and I just wanted to add an update.

Although the Hukilau site and sheraton.com both say the hotel is full, I was able to get a room thru hotels.com yesterday. So you may want to try there. I think they have blocks of rooms set aside for them.

I just got off the phone with the Mai Kai and was able to get reservations for the first show, but she said it was almost full.

Since we are driving down from Orlando I will have my SUV to drive to the Mai Kai. I can take an additional 3 people with me if anyone wants to save on the $16 shuttle fee. I don't drink so I always make the perfect designated driver.

Just email me at 420greg at gmail dot com if you are going to the first show on the 14th and want to save a few bucks on the shuttle.

First off, I want to thank Christie and everyone else involved with Hukilau every year for putting together such a wonderful event! It has become one of the highlights of my year the last 4 years, and both inspired my art and offered me a great opportunity to bring my art to tiki lovers that attend the event from all over the world.

I'm counting the days until the drive to Fort Lauderdale begins, and I look forward to all the fun that this year's event is sure to offer once again!

I'm very excited to present to this year's attendees my new work! Over the long, cold winter I spent countless hours paging through reference books at the city library and bringing the inspiration I found in those pages to my studio.

For Hukilau 2008, I'm proud to present "The Island Collection." Carvings Inspired by the Beauty and Magic of the South Pacific.
My work focuses this year on the Marquesan, Cook and Hawaiian Islands.

My carvings were created with the Hukilau traveler in mind, as all but a few pieces fit easily into a suitcase or carry-on bag. Each piece is individually hand carved by me so your art is distinctively yours.

My work this year comes in a variety of sizes and styles from wall plaques, masks and smaller size tikis. Full figured tikis, tiki faces and even scale wall hangings of canoes and sailed outriggers are all part of "The Island Collection."

Please come by and visit my table in the Yankee Clipper Ballroom, say hello and check out my new work! I'd be honored to have a place in your tiki paradise!

See you in Fort Lauderdale!

Just want to let any New York area tikiphiles know that I just bought my airplane ticket for the Hukilau last night and it was only $205 roundtrip!!! So if you've been waiting for the airfare to come down--now it has!
Get a ticket and get out of town for a weekend!!! Plus Fisherman will be performing!

I brought a bag of ZAZZ buttons on the milk carton boat http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=28600&forum=13&hilite=boating
to give out at The Hukilau (thanks again to Chongolio for working on design way back when). Fortunately they are in a ziplock bag so I don't think the salt water will damage them.

Mr. Smiley is the most thirstiesterest of
Have a nice Tiki Day!
If you like it,it is ZAZZ! If you don't, give it a RAZZ.
