Ok all you beachcombers, beatniks, bongo-beaters, tiki-carvers, mixologists, and exotica disciples from around the globe - grab your conch shell, grass skirt, aloha wear and that favorite bottle of rum and begin to prepare yourself for the 8th annual pilgrimage to most intimate Tiki festival in the world.
 
Announcing…



It’s time to make those plans to attend what promises to be a most memorable Polynesian Pop weekend as Tikiphiles unite!! We’re pleased to announce the entertainers that will bring you intoxicating tunes, the dazzlers that will provide mesmerizing performances, the seminars and presentations that will leave you spellbound and of course an incredible night at the historic Mai-Kai Restaurant! The full weekend’s schedule goes live in January.

Look for upcoming sculpts of the 2009 Munktiki Mug and we are also thrilled to announce that Tiki Tony will lend us a hand by designing the official Tiki pendant for Hukilau 2009! Hukilau Glassware, T-shirts and other keepsakes will be available at the event only – Hukilau merchandise will not be sent out this year (before or after the event) but can be reserved and picked up at the event only.

Thanks to the lovely wahine Heelgrinder for the amazing website and to all of our entertainers that have shared their music to be played as you browse the site.

See you in June 2009 – we’ll be waiting for you! Let the countdown begin!

I'll be making some announcements on the room crawl after Jan 1st in their own thread, so keep your eyes out.

Just a heads up, if you'd like to host a room, we ask that you stay at the Cabana.

More to come soon!!

Yea baby ! I got mine and they are spreading like a virus along the West Coast of Fla.!

Thanks Jim!

This is the year to introduce friends to the scene !

I started a Facebook group - The Hukilau - go on facebook, plug it in, and join.

I will be posting previous Hukilau images and Slideshows there.

The local Dive bar has 320 members and if The Hukilau group cant get more than that....well, I'll be shamed. Plus I heard there are virgins posting there!

Don't be selfish!
Share the wealth!

Southwest Airlines is running a sale so I just got roundtrip tickets to Fla. for just over $200. Anyone planning to fly might want to do some shopping before the sale ends in a couple days.

Hukilai fliers (and hopefully posters) will be available at The Mai-Kai next Friday when The Disasternauts invade The Molokai. Major helpers will receive free passes.

There's a downloadable PDF too.

And this just in: The Disasternauts have added a second night to their Mai-Kai stand so we'll be there with fliers on Saturday as well if anyone's interested.

I'm just sitting here at work, wishing that the Hukilau was this weekend. I'm ready for it NOW. If I didn't have relatives visiting for the next 3 weeks, I would just leave work and head down the coast.
