The Hukilau is happening October 6-8 (boy, that’s coming up quickly!), and tomorrow, August 31, is the last day to get passes for the event at a discounted rate. Through tomorrow, 3 day passes (Thursday – Saturday) are $35 and 4 day passes (Thursday – Sunday) are $45. After tomorrow, passes go up: 3 day is $45 and 4 day is $55. Individual day passes will be available at the door for each day at the rate of $20.
The Hukilau has always been a massive, tent-pole event, and this year is no exception. As if an evening spent at the magical Mai Kai surrounded by other tikiphiles wasn’t enough, they’ve also scored a few special guests: Robert Drasnin, Yma Sumac and Bunny Yeager. That’s only the tip of the iceberg (hm, not the greatest metaphor for a tiki event, but I digress…) of what that weekend has in store. Check out the official event website for more enticing details. Last year, a hurricane couldn’t keep me away; you can be sure I’ll be there this year.
