Luau Time!

I have gone to the most tradition Hawaiian activity: A Luau!

I had asked Whit a while back if we could go to one, since I had never been, and as hesitant as he was to go to one (cliche for a local I guess) he obliged since it was going to be on my birthday.  We even got all dressed up…ok, that simply means I put on a dress and headed out the door, sans makeup since I own none!

Anyhow, upon arriving we got a playbill with the events for the night, and since we were there early, greeted with free lei’s, we wandered around the handmade products on sale.

Whit bought me a nice Mother of Pearl necklace that I’ll have to remember to show you, before we headed back in to our assigned tables.

The whole show is set up so that you get a few hula dances before the show, a completely open bar, dinner and dessert.  We started off with tapas they brought to the table including the following:

We got a sweet taro roll, salad, maui onion chips and pineapple.  I wanted to steal the whole basket of rolls they were so good!  Afterwards, it was some hula dancing while we ate dessert:

(Dinner was vegetable chow mein, Poi, Japanese purple sweet potato,
 Jasmine rice, a tofu-tomato mix with salad)

And last but not least, we got the dessert!  I grabbed one of each: banana cream pie with chocolate topping, Kalua chocoalte cheesecake and Pineapple upside down cake. I’m not a big fan of the banana cream one, so when I like this one it wass surprising since the crust had coconut (which I hate) and is banana flavored.  I guess the real ingredients do make a significant impact!

Then it was hula time!!

I have some videos I can show you later if you want, but let me tell you, I was certainly impressed!  Those men and woman really know how to move!  Crazy!  Was definitely amazing in so many ways!

The night ended relatively early so we just headed back on the long car ride home…the trip was  definitely worth it to both of us!  Whit was certainly impressed, that’s for sure!

    It’s awesome that the bf was willing to indulge your request to check out a luau. It’s one of those things you have to go to at least once…at least, that’s how I see it. Perhaps if I ever get to Hawaii, I’ll go to one myself!

    Happy Belated Birthday btw :)
