Thanks to all the Pau Hana Parrot Heads who were able to make it out to our annual Christmas event this past Saturday night at Cha Cha Cha’s in Hawaii Kai. We had a turn out with a total of 27 members showing up at some point throughout the night. Mahalo to board member Jeff Eck for carrying out the MC duties and keeping the gift exchange interesting. There was quite a variety to choose from this year, ranging from a quite exquisite wine holder complete with bottles of wine, 12 pack of Landshark’s, a flamingo yard piece and maybe the most passed around item of the night a “Chairman Mao” watch!!!
Those who were able to stick around until later in the evening were treated to one of the best Boat Christmas Light Parade’s on Oahu. Seem’s like the number of entries were down this year, but those who participated whet all out and put on a really fantastic show. The “Rocket Pack” guy’s were very entertaining and probably the highlight of the event…can’t wait to try one out!!!
Musical entertainment for the night was the duo “Mango Season”, they put on a really nice show and even did a few “Buffett” numbers and other request’s just for our group. I’ll have to admit it’s the first time I’ve ever heard the song “Mr San Cho Lee”, pretty funny local song…check it out on Youtube if you like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS2YLvGGtwY&feature=related
Finally a big Mahlao to Angie, Jeff and the crew out at Cha Cha Cha’s for their service and providing one of the most fantastic waterfront venue’s on Oahu to our club. Please stop by and check them out anytime time you’re in the Hawaii Kai area…live music throughout the week and great Happy Hour drink and dining special’s every day.
We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s…and look forward to seeing all back in 2012. Our next club social will be at Dixie Grill in January. Also please keep Friday Feb 17th open on your calendar’s for a big night at Jimmy Buffett’s. It’s a joint venture with over 70 folks from the Tampa Bay Parrot Head Club who are in town for the Norwegian Hawaiian Island Cruise. Lot’s of great live Trop Rock music with the group’s “Latitude”, “Sunny Jim” and one of our local favorites.
