Continuing with our “Christmas in Hawaii” night at Ohana Luau, seasonal décor was everywhere...




There was more Witco...




A mural by Esene, Samoan husband of Wailana...




Food was set up in chafing dishes to be served buffet (not Buffett) style...




The salad area, with volcano in the background...




The bar...




Patti Santiago, owner of Ohana Luau with her husband, is on the left and Wailana, “executive” hula girl is on the right; both are holding a volcano bowl that Patti gave to Pat and I...




Wailana runs the day-to-day operations at Ohana Luau. In addition, she is in business as a home renovator with her husband, Esene, and is also a performer, bar tender, decorator and mother. Even at that, I am quite certain that I’ve missed a number of her talents and avocations.

Pat and I were seated at the table for two next to and on the left side of the stage...






Esene came out, having finished his duties as Chef, and poses here with Pat, my wife, prior to going on stage as one of the performers...




Wailana took a few moments out from her many duties to pose with Pat as well...




Here are Pat and I at our table...




Wailana suggested we try a cocktail of her own invention, not yet on the menu, so here is Pat trying it out...




Here is a closeup of Wailana’s custom cocktail, called the “Wacky Wai,” which she said was kind of a cross between a Rum Runner and Long Island Tea, containing Rum, Gin, Vodka, Banana Liqueur and Blackberry Liqueur; it was so good that that’s what we drank all night...




Wailana promised to share the recipe with me; that’s one promise I hope she keeps!

To be continued...

-Tom
