I know, better yet - share a Mai Tai at the Mai Kai?



As a Local for the Mai Kai, way I suggest a Jet Pilot instead?

It's not the Mai Kai Mai Tai's are bad or anything, its just the Jet Pilots are so much better.

The Haywards are looking forward to celebrating the one-year anniversary of our engagement at Hukilau 2009! We were married on March 7, at The Mai-Kai (of course).

Hello, I've been local for the last couple years,about 5-10 min from the Mai Kai, and plan on making it this year, just got back from Costa Rica so I don't think I can swing the whole weekend, so I was wondering, is there anything I shouldn't miss?

I've been on this site on and off over the years under a few different names(I tend to forget passwords), being a surfer I've always loved the Polynesian culture and it's Tiki Gods, look forward to meeting some people that love it the same, that and a good rum drink!

KUNKFUTIKI - I don't mean to bury your post...and your question, but I just had to jump on here and say that I am looking forward to meeting the Tiki Nation this Thursday and this weekend. To paraphrase Kevin from the office, "this is going to be epic!"

Each night has its own unique character, so I'm not sure there's any one night you can point to as being 'the' night. I'm sure if ask 20 people, you'll find 20 different responses to which night they prefer (although that's rum-fuzzy math since it's not 20 nights long ;)

Wednesday night is the Un-Officially Official Kick-Off at the Mai Kai. Not so much for you as a local, but for the travelers this is the night you want to go to get pictures of the place. The Mai Kai will be all dolled up for the weekend, but you wont have quite as many people in your pictures (or in your way for pictures if you want some specific shot).

Thursday night is the Room Crawl and Bands. Best night for meeting people since everyone will be fresh and spritely having just arrived.

Friday is the 'big show' with the best bands. Best night for the music and to dance with everyone.

Saturday is the Mai Kai! Again, as a local the magic is reduced ever so slightly, however it is nice to see the place full of smiling faces and adoring fans.

Does that help?

I was just at the Mai Kai tonight with the wife and kids. Went for an early dinner as we have a 9 month old! Everything was great!

We have prior commitments so we will not be at the Hukilau but I am going to try my best to make it to the bazaar on Saturday afternoon. I hope to have my art there next year! I will most likely be wearing a t-shirt with this on it:



if anyone from TC wants to say "Hi"

Here's a couple of pics from tonight:

Thank you it does, I'll pop in wednesday night and meet everybody, I'll be the guy that looks like a cross between Spicoli and kid rock, around what time?

Having the Mai Kai next door is great, I take all my friends that come in town there for at least a drink. I really hope to get down to Hollywood for the Polynesian festivals this summer also.

Thanks for the reply too jetsetter, sounds like there's a lot going on.

My wife and I will be attending our first Hukilau, fresh on the heels of our return from 2 ½ weeks on Oahu.

Since I am getting ready to try my hand at tiki carving, I am hoping to see it happen - and maybe pick a few brains…

We'll be driving down from Central Florida to our first Hukilau on Thursday; joining me will be the Pat Wahine (beloved spousal unit) and our friend from Los Angeles, Judy Wahine. The anticipation is building.... looking forward to meeting everyone!

I'll be attending and volunteering again this year I was hoping to have the '53 in legal running condition, but still got more to do on it. So, it looks like my '80 will make another trip I'll see if I can get a good parking spot!

Gotta finish up a few outfits - can't wait!

Are there any others making the trip from Europe? Even if so, we'll probably be the only Australian and Argentinian couple there so make sure you say hello and laugh at our funny accents (even though its you guys with the accent)!!
