On August 8th and 9th the Kahiki and Kon-Tiki chapters of the Fraternal order of Moai held the sixth Hot Rod Hula Hop in Columbus Ohio. Friday night they celebrated the installation of the “George” monkey fountain from the late Kahiki Supper Club with a Luau feast. Each cocktail for the weekend came with its very own custom swizzle made by the Royer Corporation. During dinner participants were serenaded by Francis Llacuna while enjoying an array of cocktails and partaking in a tasty meal. Before and after dinner under the Aloha Tent, Roland Remington provided pleasant music for the attendees. Later in the evening Apocalpyso took the stage only to be followed by one of the most outrageously fun “Mystery Bowl” auctions in Hot Rod Hula Hop history. Auction proceeds were used to benefit Cure CMD. Vegas 66 wrapped the fun filled night up with the final performance of the evening.
Cars, pin-ups, and music oh my! Saturday afternoon crowds descended on the Sequoia Pro Bowl to shop the vendors, view the car show, and participate in the silent auction. The Aloha spirit and Fellowship of the Moai was felt throughout the event as everyone had a good time wiling the afternoon away. As the sun started to set Ooh-La-Las Burlesque took the stage for the first of three memorable performances of the night. The audience also enjoyed performances by the D-Rays, CryptoKats, The Coffin Daggers with the Supersuckers closing the night with a special midnight performance.
