Post your Hukilau 2010 photos here.. This was probably one of the most 'swingin years I have seen of the 8 Hukilau years that I have attended (or is it that they just keep getting better??). Thanks to everyone for attending! Hope to see everyone next year for the 10th anniversary of Hukilau and the 55th for the Mai Kai!!

Hukilau was a BLAST! The company was stellar and the Mai Kai was magical!

Mahalo to Basement Kahuna for starting this thread.

Basement Kahuna, I didn't see this thread earlier. I started a photo journal on the General Tiki page. Here is the link...

Posted earlier in the Official Hukilau thread...

It appears Facebook may be the scene of all the early photo action.

Here's a link to my gallery which also includes some photos from the Pre-Hukilau Dinner at the Mai Kai from Wednesday night.

Enjoy!

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

I'm really underwhelmed by the photographic documentation efforts of Right Coast Tikiphiles. (Except for Vince Martini)

Tonga Tom posts 10 times the photos just for weekly TC Sundays at the Tonga Hut !!

Maybe everyone's still recovering.

It was a good Hukilau.

I've attended many Hukilaus, but some first-time highlights for me included ...

- Watching the World Premiere of 'DVD of Tiki' - This is a great, great film - the best documentary of tiki I have seen so far. They did an amazing job of 'animating' some classic historical tiki photos, that really made them come to life. They even covered some topic areas that even I had not been aware of. I'm now looking forward to Part 2 being released.

- the Sweet Hollywaiians - Wonderful music, and excellent harmonies, that had me thinking of the 1930's and the original Don the Beachcomber era

- Wearing my space helmet outfit to the '2010 Cocktail Oydessey' Room Crawl and enjoying the late night space vibe antics of the Disasternauts set in the Cabana penthouse suite

- Loved the Weeki Wachee mermaid presentation, and hearing an original 1947 mermaid tell her stories. Lu Vicker's 'Weeki Wachee' book is well worth purchasing

- Sitting next to the Mai Kai stage, with a Jet Pilot in hand, as two friends exchange their wedding vows on stage .... and then a few minutes later, feeling the breeze on my face as the Mai Kai dancer's grass skirts sweep by.
- I was finally was able to fulfill a roadside travel goal and drive to Monkey Jungle.

- So many other things - good friends, great drinks, Beachbum cocktail seminars (with generous refills), all the vendors, the fashions, the Mai Kai drinks and gardens, the sensory overload, the memories .....

-------------------

Photos. I did not take many photos this year, but have posted a few of the best ones on facebook. I also included a couple of shots of the Tiki Ti, which I visited in early May, and a few photos of my visit to Monkey Jungle.
