I doubt that Chuck will have the caliber of polynesian shows that they had
back in the day with authentic Honolulu hula dancers.Not to sound negative
but if someone is paying $40.00 a head, it should be the real deal.
I know the last two times I made reservations at Kona's for big events we
all know what happened with that-never again will I be put thru that BS ever.

I've been to a couple of the luau brunches at Kona and the entertainment & food was great! (They looked like real Pacific Islanders to me!!!)

You know Bill..When you interject the word "But" in a sentence it means that everything you said previous is a lie! Why don't you go and report back to us on the quality of the food and the entertainment? And take pictures while you're at it. I haven't seemed to have the problems you've had at events there. I guess I've been lucky!

Bill...I agree with Soccer tiki. Don't knock it until you try it.

Also, Kona is a fledgling Tiki establishment with a HUGE overhead in their first year, and in THIS economy.
If you choose not to go, fine, but speculating on whether it will be better than the "old days" is pointless and really not very helpful to a place that deserves to stay in business. It's the last standing original Tiki Restaurant in Orange County.

While I'm not in any way defending the way they handled the last event there that you're speaking of, I still think we should all support Kona, and the fact that they are trying to preserve the once great legacy of Sam's Seafood.

Just consider the whitewashing that the Royal Hawaiian got, and then consider how Kona has stuck to it's Tiki roots. That's commendable, and they don't need frikken naysayers doling out criticism without ever seeing the product.

Now, go to your room !

I'm sure the show and food will be top notch.

Dont get me wrong guys I always have a great time at Kona.
However the last two biggest events of the year and Chuck was not
present.If the security was in place and management was around, these
type of things would not happen.Chris of all people,you were standing
right there and saw what happened with my table reservations, so I
don't want to hear about buts and lies.Chuck still has not addressed
the nightmere I went thru ,not once but twice at Kona.I have no problem
with the food or service at Kona at all, infact I have been tipping the
waitresses 30% for their excellent service.
Cheers,
Trader Bill

Wow! gee whizz kids...30% maybe I should get a job slingin' spam at Kona... ok big spenders, guys & gals, cats & kittens, isn't that the same night as the Tiki Mag show? did I read right? i'd love to do both maybe Kona will make the luau a regular event & I will make the next Luau. I am bummed just a couple months ago Jim B. Tikiyaki & I were disguising how cool to have a real Luau on the floor. Sorry to miss it.

yes that is the same night at as the Tiki Mag release party and artist show
in Glendale.
once again, bad planning, and proof that people don't look to see what other events are going on, when planning something.
tsk tsk tsk.

All due respect guys...The Kona peeps are not Tiki Central Regulars. Remember, we are a microcosm unto ourselves in here.

I'm sure they knew nothing of the Nov 21st Tiki Mag show.

I'm guessing that Kona will be doing the Luau show again, at least semi-regularly, so you'll get to see it again, I'm sure. Hell, you can see it every Sunday with Brunch.

Also, look for a big announcement for another Kona/Tikiyaki Extravaganza very soon.

Yes. Don't know exactly what happened there, but I doubt there is any intention on the part of Kona to sabotage the Tiki Mag party.
