Sometimes it takes more than one try to get our podcast recorded and ready for you. Sunshine and Starshine were in the lounge sipping the Forbidden Atoll when shortly after finishing the show, disaster struck. We may never know where the original first 20 minutes of this episode went. Lucky for everyone we were together again at a local casino and had time to bring the laptop. Special thanks to our listeners who sent in some great questions that led to ample conversation. And, a big Mahalo to Mr. Ho himself for sending an audio clip with details on the upcoming tour. Listen to the whole hour for all the fun. Plus, music by Jim Fiegan from his album Tiki Blues.Read More

You have heard us talking about Hukilau for many months now and its time to tell everyone about all the fun they missed. Sunshine journeyed from the dimly lit Zen Tiki Lounge to the bright and sunny coast of Fort Lauderdale for this years Hukilau 2009. Starshine joins Sunshine in the lounge to drink a splendid new cocktail discovered in Key West at the Rum Barrel. While in Flaaarida we met many a great tikiphiles and imbibed many new cocktails as well as the old favorites. Bumping into listeners of the podcast was not only fun by a great chance to put facebook/myspace names to real people. Sunshine also had a chance to see the premiere of Tikimentary, a great short film about the phenomenom that is Tiki. Duda Leite spent a good deal of time putting this film together and we were lucky enough to be there for the Hukilau premiere. This is just part 1 of 2 for the Hukilau recap, be sure to listen to the next episode to hear all about the world famous Mai Kai and much more.
