OHANA 2016: June 23-26, 2016 at The Tiki Resort, Lake George, NY
The Fraternal Order of Moai once again sponsored the biggest little event in tiki, Ohana 2016! Tiki Underground was tickled to join in the frolicking for the second year in a row, with the most memorable room crawl we have ever experienced – absinthe fountains? DJ from Manhattan? Disco dancing? Sushi? Yes to all of it. Below are a few great memories from 2016 until we meet again next June ….

If you like great music, food, and drinks, this is the event for you! Our second year was just as good as the first, and we love celebrating at one of our all time favorite tiki joints, The Grass Skirt Tiki Room in the heart of Ohio.

OHANA 2015: June 25-28, 2015 at The Tiki Resort, Lake George, NY
We’re had a blast at Ohana 2015! It’s the perfect setting for a tiki escape, and to be able to support the efforts of the Fraternal Order of Moai. We were active observers and consumers and pool party participants.
