I am very honored to have one of my tikis (the big kanaloa) was presented to the Mai Kai on behalf of the hukilau, and is now a permanent piece there...

he looks cool during the day, but he really comes to life at night with proper up-lighting...

Congratz Jeff!
What a great tiki! and what a great place for it to live.

Man there are almost no Hukilau photos on TC.

Congratulations!

Very awesome honor... I would think if you make a Tiki, that the Mai Kai would be certainly be
its happy place (hell... it's MY happy place...)

On the photos front, we've got a few I hope to upload soon. Funny thing about Hukilau,
you think you're getting all these great pictures, but once the Black Magic and Jet Pilot
haze clears and your standing in the stark, bright, light of day, you realize most of your
pictures are complete smeary, blurred, off-center dreck.

Or is that just me?? The camera's been drinking, not me...

We did see some folks with pro camera set-ups wandering around,
so there are definitely good pictures to be had.

Personally, we had such a good time that my pictures are mostly terrible.

--Pete

This was an amazing Hukilau. I think there were double or triple the amount of "sample" cocktails served at all the symposiums and events, including a full double-old-fashioned glass at Jeff Berry's seminar. My photos turned out quite well, and I'm not sure what that means. I think I may have taken one with Jeff and his carving on the Mai-Kai main stage.

On another topic, hey, I just last night got my Hukilau laundry done! hahaha...

That is a honor you certainly deserve. He certainly is a big guy.
