Marian and I have stayed there as well. I love their roof top hammock. How did you find it? Just curious.

Yeah, us too. I think it would be way too small for the Hukilau ohana though. By the way, it was great to finally meet you both.

Thanks Rain! Looks like a very nice and cozy spot. Maybe we can find a place with those qualities just larger.

I'll have to look into staying there when we're in Lauderdale later this year.

I got to sit upper center in the back of the restaurant which gave me a good view of the Mai-Kai's main dining room. It also gave me a good view of....ANGER MAN!
Anger man was this guy in a party of 8 sitting in
front and left of me. I didn't notice him until the
waiter brought the flaming banana dessert to their
table. The waiter set up his cart behind anger man,
lit the flaming booze and poured it on the bananas.
This apparently scared anger man and he turned around
and with great anger uttered something (like "you
sonofabitch whaddayou trying to do burn me to death?).
The waiter explained something probably like, "sorry
sir, I am just making your dessert". I couldn't hear
what they were saying but the facial expressions said
it all. After the waiter explained what he was doing,
Anger man lept out of his chair and dashed around the
other side of the table to escape the "banana flames
of death". The waiter served the dessert and left.
After this, I couldn't help taking a peek at Anger
Man from time to time. He was wearing some boring
non-tiki t-shirt . Anger Man scowled for the rest of
the evening and left as soon as the floor show
ended-before the auctions left.
Anger Man should have
been happy that he escaped "the banana flames of
death"!--bruce

Hey I think it's funny that mr smiley (aka mild mannered Bruce) finally met his arch-rival Anger Man

...and he was no match for mr smiley's flaming bananas.... but one day he will return oh yes, to rule the world!!!!!

Aloha, Talofa, and Buenos Diaz to everyone. Samoan Dan here. I want to say thank everyone for all the kind words posted about my dad ( Pasefika ) and I. It was a real pleasure meeting everyone and I can't remember having such a great time. I think my liver is still recovering from the Hukilau Weekend:)It was interesting to see pics of my dad and my godfather from the Kai back in the seventies. I also read that Crazy Al went swimming at the Yankee Clipper Hotel. It's cool to know that people are aware that the hotel had a Polynesian Restaurant back in the sixties. A little fact about the restaurant is a group of Polynesian Dancers featuring my father Pasefika, my Godfather Taafili, and my Aunt Tuai worked the show for seven years until it closed in 1969. The show opened with new dancers in 1971 but closed two years later. Just a FYI. Well I wish there was enough space to type thanks to everyone who were involved with the Hukilau. Thanks for allowing Afa Tasi to take part in such a wonderful event. I plan a becoming a regular in Tiki Central because I like the vibe being generated. Bamboo Ben, Crazy Al, and King it was a pleasure staying up all night with you guys and spreading the Polynesian love to everyone on the 6th floor and in Holden's room. Peace everyone and aloha.

Aloha, Dan! Good to hear from you...your room/your dad were the hit of the floor! You guys are Hukilau fixtures from here on out; no if's, and's, or but's will be accepted...I have to thank your dad again for the coconut and the two cups of Pasefika brand hangover cure. That was the best. Welcome to Tiki Central!

Hi Dan! You guys were a great addition to Hukilau! Thanks so much for the coconuts. You guys gotta do that for the whole bunch next year.

Great stories....Swanky and I will be coming down to Lauderdale soon and we'd really like to get together with you guys and Kern.
