Now that Hukilau 2010 is behind us I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of the Room Crawl Hosts personally for the part they all played in making this year's event so successful.
All the rooms and served cocktails were simply spectacular, and the highlight of most everyone's weekend!

As a judge, I can say that while I enjoyed all of the rooms, having to make 'winner' decisions was a hard task for us all.

The winning decor went to Planet of Forbidden Tiki, hosted by Robotiki and Trader Rick, while Gaugin's Grotto, hosted by the Diabolical Dr. K, Damon Vegas, Dylan Otto, and Jonathan Lee Blouk, took home the prize for best cocktail for their 'Papeete Paralyzer' (recipe below for you to try at home).

From the neon glow of Tiki Woo's Radiation Spaceport, the wildman antics of Gaugin's Grotto, the tiki robotics of the Planet of Forbidden Tiki, thebeauties in Look At The Bunny, the Mele Kalikimaka holiday spirit of Christmas Island, until the 'endless' fun at the Macadamia Nut Hut, the Room Crawl was a hit from start to finish!

Again, thanks to all for their tremendous creativity, and perhaps most importantly, generous hospitality for making the 2010 Room Crawl the best one ever, as thousands of drinks were passed along to guests!

Hope to do it again with you all in 2011!

Mahalo!

Recipe for the 'Papeete Paralyzer'
1.5oz Benedictine
1.0oz JM Agricole Blanc
.25oz Falenum
Juice of one lime
1 inch fresh banana
Lemon Hart 151 demerara float

Well, here's our drink. It didn't win, but a lot of you told me how much you liked it. I only made 20 Xerox copies of it and they were snatched up in the first hour. So for the benefit of those who wanted the recipe, here it is:


1 oz. Seven Tiki Spiced Rum
½ oz. Orange Curacao (Dekuyper)
1 oz. Orange flavored Tang© (mix 2 Tbsp. per 8oz.)
1 oz. Orange Juice (Tropicana© No Pulp Premium)
1 oz. Fresh squeezed lemon juice
¼ oz. simple syrup (Trader Vic’s© Rock Candy Syrup)
¼ oz. Orgeat syrup (Trader Vic’s© Orgeat Syrup)

Fill a Boston Shaker with party ice. Add all the ingredients. Shake for 10 seconds. Pour into a Double Old Fashioned Glass. Add fruit stick (maraschino cherry and pineapple wedge) for garnish. Add a couple of cocktail straws for sipping.

-By “Trader Rick” (Rick Coyle) for the 2010 Hukilau Room crawl.

The Room Crawl was great this year, though I only got to visit about half of them. Mahalo to all who took their time to hydrate the Hukilau masses.

I heard much the same, and as I said, the decision making was REALLY tough on the judges. Thanks for posting the recipe to allow those that didn't make it the opportunity to play '2010: A Cocktail Odyssey: Hukilau Room Crawl HOME VERSION'!!!! (Note to Tiki Kiliki: a merchandising opportunity for next year ;)

Everybody really went all out whether on the cocktail, decor, or both and the rooms were all awesome. Very very very hard to judge. Fantastic job everybody.

I just posted another album to Facebook with 100+ photos from the 2010: A Cocktail Odyssey Room Crawl and Master Mixology Cocktail Challenge. Not the best photos, but taken while judging room decor and cocktails, with a little buzz on (with a new camera that seemed to switch modes on its own).

I'm also about to post another 100+ taken at the Mai Kai Saturday night.

I don't have the patience to upload them to my gallery, so feel free to view them on Facebook. Chances are we're already friends, and if not, let's be. If you're not on Facebook, get with the program. It's the 90's now

Well, we served over 300 drinks. Some folks had seconds but not that many. We were open longer than we were supposed to because the lines were long and we wanted folks to be able to get in and sample our wares. We went through an obscene amount of Seven Tiki rum.

Participants: Feel free to post any of the other non-winning recipes. They were all top-notch. And more room crawl or contest photos (or links). It would be nice to keep this thread going.

I'm working on an official press release that I'll be posting along with the official photos when they're available. I'll also be sending it out to cocktail press. Beachbum Berry will be posting a story on his blog as well.

Mahalo!
