Yes, it certainly would wasabi, it certainly would. I also have a 1500 viking dress, if you want to borrow (it is not that old, it is a modern copy)

I've been wanting to throw a real luau for years now (it's been a dozen since I lived there, and have quite a few correspondents in Hawaii). You've inspired me. Maybe for my summer party this year (I 'do' two parties a year). I'll bet I've been to more luaus than almost everyone on this site put together, and I'm dying for some of the dishes we used to consider just normal food. Chicken adobo. Chicken Long Rice. I cannot remember what it was called, but a dish with the pork cooked in the ground, then stir fried with cabbage. Sate. Poke. Sushi and sashimi. Chow Mein which I used to buy by the tub fulls for parties (in the continental US it is billed as lo mein). Oh, dear, I'm waxing nostalgic. Hope your party went well!!!

Claire,
The pig cooked in the ground is called kalua pig.

I've never been to Hawaii or a luau and I think I pulled it off pretty well. A friend from another board said that she stir fries the kalua pig w/cabbage. I didn't make chicken adobo (but I used to make it all the time... my X is Filipino)
Anyway... we had a lot of fun... it went great... everyone loved the food & drinks... I think the favorites were kalua pua'a and ahi poke. (and the Blue Hawaiians!)

Time to start planning my next party... I do about 2 a year too!
