This past weekend we had the pleasure to sponsor and attend "Ohana, Luau at the Lake". Lake George is located in the Adirondack mountains in New York. It's a small vacation town with this amazing tiki resort. The perfect little getaway for those of us on the east coast. We arrived on
Thursday night, it was too late for us to sign up for the steamboat trip. But peeking out of our motel window our first impression was a group of about 50 people walking up the driveway wearing fez hats! Oh man, we had no idea what was in store for the rest of the weekend!
Friday was our official check in- We were greeted at the door with unlimited rum drinks and spam sandwiches. We received a tote bag full of swag and we were happy to see the Sourpuss tumblers stacked high for all to grab! After a little catch up we headed to the pool- endless rum and ginger beer drinks were pouring.
After running out for dinner we came back to the hotel lounge and we were transported to another time- Bamboo Saxotica a tiki/exotica band playing fun songs like the theme to Hawaii 5-0 and other classic retro tunes. We wrapped up the evening with room crawls- tasting (you guessed it) more rum!
Saturday was packed full of things to do, there was a vendor tent filled with tiki, kitsch and vintage items for sale.
Unfortunately a storm rolled in and cut that end of things a little short- but within a few hours the sun came back out again. While the outside was drying up, we did get a chance to check out Velveteen Lounge ( www.velveteenloungekitsch-en.comwww.velveteenloungekitsch-en.com ): Which was amazing! She was also involved with creating kitschy treats through out the weekend- remember those spam sandwiches I mentioned? Oh, they were delish!
The night was wrapped up with a pig roast, Polynesian dinner show and Drive in movie, you really can't ask for much more!
Ohana 2013 is planned for the weekend of June 30th. Book it early to be a part of the action!
