Can't Get Too Much Mai Kai

**Tomorrow I'll be posting a video from inside the Mai Kai.

Below: here's why I gained weight during my trip...crab rangoon and cocktails! The drink in the foreground is mine, the "Oh So Deadly". Mitch had the one in the back, something with mint. Evidently it went down smooth, since his is half gone just in the time it took me to get the camera out.

below: Mai Kai is dark. Very dark. This creates a feeling of mystery. Here you can see the haole fire dancer on stage, balancing lit torches on his feet. Behind him you can make out 3 musicians standing under a thatched mini-hut.

THOSE OF YOU GETTING THIS VIA FEEDBLITZ: if you can't click on the photo and get it to enlarge, go to my blog and click to enlarge. You can see a lot of detail in the interior this way, including the musicians, the dancer's costume and more.

Below: dark. Did I mention , dark? We loved it. Plus everyone looks great by torchlight.

below: outside in the garden.

below: ummm....Wha??? Imagine seeing this as you walk through jungle.

below: I like the weathered, plain wood ones best.

Have been enjoying the Lauderdale and Mai Kai pictures. Looks like a blast!

Holy moly, I've bet you've NEVER heard this, but Mitch looks just like Penn Jillette

Actually, you're only the second person to say that! 8-)

Mitch has participated in a Penn and Teller show! They called him up from the audience and had him tie up Teller so Penn could saw him in half or something similar. He definitely tied up Teller.
