Aloha & Happy New Year!!

Its time to start talking Hukilau Room Crawl!!!

This year's Hukilau is already shaping up to be something really special and the crawl is going to just push it over the top!!

We're still working out some of the scheduling & adding some fantastic events, so we don't have any official times available yet for the crawl, however, if you're interested in hosting a room please "sign up" here or email
roomcrawl@thehukilau.com

Those who are signed up will get first crack at the available times.

For those who aren't familiar with Room Crawls, think of it as a bar/pub crawl, but instead of going from bar to bar, we go from room to room, round robin style.

Its a great chance to get to meet a whole bunch of new friends, and show off your mixology & decorating skills!

We'll post a block of times available soon, and you can sign up for any time slot you want (blocks of aprx 1.5 hours). That slot is yours to do with as you want. Make whatever drink you want, play the music you want, decorate your room the way want, and then open your doors to the Crawl participants.

You can stay open for as long (or short) as you'd like during your time slot, but we do ask that you close down when your time is up, so others can open their doors. You can always re-open during post crawl hours.

If you still cant wrap your head around what the crawl is, here are some extreme examples (don't feel like you're expected to go this overboard...these people have issues. lol):





And yes, earlier that morning those were just regular old hotel rooms.

Note the Tiki Tip Jar (Mug) in the second one. If you're going to host, put out a tip jar!!

If you're going to crawl, TIP when you have a cocktail!!

We also ask that if you're going to host a room, please do your best to stay at the Cabana. We've got the entire place reserved, so we don't have to worry about disturbing others, and we'd like to keep it as centralized as possible.

Interested yet?

Good!

Now sign on up!!

More to come soon!! Mahalo, and we'll see you at Hukilau!!

To be clear, we are scheduling crawl times around the events of Hukilau. There should be no conflicts. So have no fear. The crawl will not interfere with seminars, bands, etc.

Ok,

I've got the skinny on the room crawl.

With the current schedule, the room crawl will take place entirely on Thursday evening.

There will be music & events going on throughout the night concurrently, but everything is "doubled up" so no one will miss anything. Ie, a band that's playing from 8 to 9, plays again from 10 to 11. So if you're hosting during one show, you'll still be able to see the other one.

We're going to kick off at 6pm, in the penthouse suite, where the art show is being housed.

There is the opportunity for TWO hosts, to take over this room for the 6pm to 7.30 slot. No need to worry about decor (with all that great tiki art), but it will most likely be a VERY busy room. I believe I have one volunteer for this slot. If you'd like to be the second, let me know.

From there we start a second room at 7pm, and then add another room every 1/2 hour. Rooms are open for 1.5 hour blocks...so, for most of the night, there will be three rooms open at a time, with one dropping off, and a new one added, every 1/2 hour, ending at 2am.

Slots are first come, first serve, so PM or email me at
roomcrawl@thehukilau.com with your choice.

Here are the slots (I'll edit this as they fill up)

Available times are:


6.00-7.30 Hurricane Hayward & Tane *guest hosts in the Art Exhibit penthouse*
7.00-8.30
7.30-9.00 Creo67&Skitiki/e59&Roger Danger
8.00-9.30
8.30-10.00 Bargoyle, pappy, johnman
9.00-10.30 Suzanne
9.30-11.00 RugbyMatt/Kokoru's
10.00-11.30 Bohemian
10.30-12.00
11.00-12.30
11.30-1.00
12.00-1.30
12.30-2.00

Just a reminder, you need to be staying at the Cabana to host a room.

If you're staying somewhere else & still want to host, contact me & we'll see if we can get you a "loaner" room at the Cabana for your time slot....

And if anyone at the Cabana is willing to loan their room for a slot, let me know.

Kind of related......

Some of the locals (we're local, thus no hotel room to host from) are willing to be mix-monkeys and bar backs. All you gotta do is ask...

Hukilai fliers (and hopefully posters) will be available at the show next Friday for anyone who wants to help promote. Major helpers will receive free passes.

See what they look like here:

Feel free to post a Web flier or banner on your site.
