The Kon-Tiki chapter is bringing you a little island warmth this winter. We are organizing an FOM night at the "Polynesian Fire" revue at La Comedia Dinner Theatre in Springboro, just south of Dayton.

Quote:
See the two-time world champion of the Fire Knife Dance heat up the La Comedia stage!

Escape to the islands this Winter as we present the best of Polynesian culture, song and dance in this high-energy revue. You will be amazed at the daring feats of the the two-time Fire Knife Dance world champion and current Duet Fire Knife champion!

The soothing tones of ukuleles, and the mesmerizing beat of the tom-toms will have you feeling the warm breezes of the Pacific. Polynesian Fire brings the tradition, charm and magic of Polynesia to you.


The show runs Jan. 14 - March 8. We are planning a group outing in conjunction with the Kahiki chapter for sometime in January or February. All FOM members, initiates, tourists, spouses and kids are welcome to join us.

I have been working out the details with La Comedia's group sales department. None of the shows have yet sold out, so they should be able to seat our party almost any evening. They are checking into the best dates to seat a large group and will get back to me shortly with that info. Obviously, a Friday or Saturday night would work best for folks coming from Columbus, Cincinnati or points beyond.

We get a group discount for a party of 20 or more. That number shouldn't be a problem. The ticket price, which includes a dinner buffet, varies by seating section and the day of the week that we attend. Seating is in tiers. Section 1 is the first six rows. Our group rate in Section 1 on a Saturday night, the priciest option, is $52. That's compared to the usual $69 individual ticket price.

Image

They can hold seats for as many people as we need. We just need to give them a $1 deposit for each person within 30 days, and then give them the final number attending and full payment 30 days prior to the show date.

From past experience, La Comedia's food is good. They will be doing Polynesian cuisine for the dinner buffet. The menu won't be finalized until a few days before the show opens.

La Comedia has a "well-stocked bar," according to the group sales rep. She said the usual drink menu includes a Mai Tai, as well as a Volcano served in a special bowl. (I told her that our group probably would be drinking a few of those; she said she would tell them to order more bowls.) They are supposed to fax me the drink menu, so I will post more on their offerings once it arrives. She also will check into whether we can bring or provide our own Tiki mugs. Specialty drinks might also be available for the show, but it's too soon to tell.

There is a Hampton Inn hotel one block from the theater. I will look into group rates there as we proceed further. Post-show rum drinks, anyone?

That's the scoop so far. Please post below if you are interested in attending, with how many might be in your party. I'll be looking for more definite numbers once we determine a date, so that we can make our reservation. Again, I'll continue to update the thread as we get more details.

Here's La Comedia's Web site: http://www.lacomedia.com/index.html

We hope that you can join us on the exotic shores of Dayton. Mahalo!

I should have a list best available dates in the next few days. Am I correct in assuming that the Columbus Ohana would prefer to make it a Saturday?

Yeah, I like Saturday the best. $52 isn't that bad for the best seats in the house plus the dinner buffet.

I'll probably stay at the hotel as well. Room Crawl anyone!!! :twisted:

Mark me down for two tickets!!!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

I would certainly be interested in tickets for 2. I agree a room crawl would be fun.

Looks like a great time, Hep - a little taste of Polynesia in the middle of Winter sounds like a great idea! :)

Holy hotness! How lucky are we all to have a great event so close?

If there are enough places, please count me in for two spots. Saturday works best during Q1 for us, no question.

Put me down for two. Saturday works well for me as well.
I think when we had discussed this, we were thinking more of a February date, wernt we?
I guess it really doesnt matter either way.

Oh boy, are we gonna like this place! La Comedia sent me their drink menu today. It's four pages and pretty impressive...

Quote:
Show Special with Souvenir Glass
With each new production, La Comedia's expert mixologists design a very special drink that highlights our current production. Why not get in the "spirit" of today's performance and sample our Show Special!

That sounds promising with a Polynesian revue, especially given the "Tropical Favorites" section of the menu:

Quote:
Maui Wowie
Our favorite Hawaiian drink... Rum, papaya, pineapple, coconut and cream.

Mai Tai
The best of the Tahitians. Originated in Tahiti and prepared with three types of Rum and exotic juices.

South Seas Sipper
Imagine yourself on a tropical beach in the South Pacific... slowly sipping Tropical Schnapps, papaya, pineapple and orange.

Jamaican Jazz
Our most potent brew -- made with four different types of Rum.

The Hurricane
Take care, this potent brew will blow you off course. This wicked wench is known to make hardy seamen jump ship and swim ashore. Made with Golden Rum and fruit juices.

Bahama Bash
Feel the warm Caribbean sun and tropical breezes as you sip this light combination of Rum, banana, pineapple and orange.

The Volcano
This drink commands respect! ...And rightfully so! Vodka, Brandy, Rum, Scotch, Amaretto, Cherry Brandy and other delights. We bring it to you flaming, surrounded by a refreshing cool inner lake. (Recommended for two.)

The Show Special, Maui Wowie, South Seas Sipper and Hurricane also are available without alcohol. The standard cocktails cost $5.95 ($4.95 without alcohol). The Show Special is $7.95 ($6.95 without alcohol). The Volcano is $13.95.

I think I'll be getting a room at the nearby hotel. :wink:

It's good to see that there's a fairly strong consensus for a Saturday night show. That will make it easier to choose a date. Personally, I like the idea of February just to avoid any conflicts with NFL playoff games.

La Comedia's computers have been down for the past few days, hence the delay with getting their best available dates. I'll post them as soon as I get them.

Yes, the prices indeed.
Gas down there was 40 to 80 cents higher than it is here.
But, you have the Mai Kai, sunshine, warm temperatures, scantily clad women all year long, the Mai Kai, beaches, tropical plants and the Mai Kai.

On the flipside, can you just pay the dollar and drink only the alcohol?

This place looks awesome. Not so awesome that I could fly in for the weekend. But, awesome none the less.

We're looking at Feb. 7 or 21 as the best available dates in February for a Saturday with Section 1 seating. That avoids conflicts with Super Bowl and V a l e n t i n e's* weekends, and there's wide open seating for either date.

I propose Feb. 7, because we'll be needing some island warmth by that point in the winter. If there's a conflict with that date, please let me know asap. Otherwise, if that works for everyone, we can proceed from there.

Also, please plan on joining us that Saturday afternoon for some Kon-Tiki hospitality. More details coming soon! :fez:

to close to Mardi Gras for me. I guess I'll have to skip this one and come to Columbus this year for the HRHH.
