The latest adventure for the Pau Hana Parrot Heads took place in Kailua this past Saturday June 29th.  The evening started out at Oeno Wine Making, a great little venue run by Marshal and Bryon right in the heart of Kailua.  Our group had the opportunity to sample eight fantastic wines and review each one.  At the end of the event ou favorites were the Chilean Malbec and a Merlot by Stag’s Leap, with the latter finally chosen by a wide margin as our winner. 
The Wine will be made and aged at Oeno over the next several month’s then in late September, our group will gather again… this is where the fun really begins!!!  We’ll have the opportunity to bottle, cork and apply our very on label’s.  The initial word going around the table is that we’ll name it “Parrot Head Red”, and put our club logo on the label.  If anyone has any other thought’s though, please let us know.  Even if you were not able to attend the tasting, you’re still welcome to join us for the bottling.  We’ll have 30 bottles to go around and split the cost between whoever would like to take some home.  Again thanks to Marshal and Bryon for putting everything together for our group.  Please stop by and check them out if you were unable to attend the event, they do the tasting every day Wed-Sun, also sell Wine and Beer Making Supplies and will soon offer a Beer Making experience.  The website is www.oenowinemaking.com 
The fun did not end for our flock though, as many of us regrouped next door at the Kailua Pub for a quick drink then continued on over to the home of Gary and Vikki Ferstler.  They were gracious enough to let our gang hang out at their incredibly decked out Tiki Bar and then take us on a Pontoon Voyage up the Enchanted Lake Canel.  The highlight of the evening though was probably Kevin Taggerty making an impromptu appearance from the shores of Buzz’s Restaurant.  Kev went all out for us, actually wadded out to our pontoon, with guitar and Harmonica in hand and played a quick set for the flock before heading back to dinner with the family.  Thanks Kev, that was quite an experience!!!  After the waterfront Kevin Taggerty show, we cruised back to the Ferstler’s all the while negotiating bridges and other navigational obstacle’s with a flashlight and a near miss with running out of fuel.   Upon docking we listened to more great Buffett and Trop Rock Tunes at the Tiki Bar then said Aloha for the night.  It was defiantly a flocking not to be soon forgotten.

A big Mahalo to Gary and Vikki for hosting the final chapter of our outing and especially to Kevin for really going out of his way to entertain our group.  Remember our July gathering is coming right up the Pool Party in Makakilo on July 13th, please RSVP if you’re attending.  We’ll have a potluck and great live music all evening with Kevin, John and Steve.  Look forward to seeing everyone then.
