The luau was great fun. Guy ordered the tickets weeks in advance.  Fortunately, he opted to put us at regular tables and chairs rather than the traditional "sit on the sand" style.

They gave us all the mai tais (or what ever you wanted) you could drink.  Before the dinner and show, we strolled around and saw various native arts and crafts. I was most interested in "tapu"... the paper they made from smashing mulberry tree bark.

We sat at a table with a man and wife from North Carolina.  When we sat down, the wife asked the four us, "where are your wives?".  I told her it was a long story, but they were back darning our socks.

During the dinner, there was a hula show depicting the history of the Hawaiian people.

At one point, the hula was made illegal by the Christian Missionaries. Because hula was a form of communicating with the "spirit" of Hawaii and it was just too provocative for the missionary style of life.
