Aloha friends!

I am new to the forum however, I have met some (maybe many) of you at the past 2 Ohana Luau at the Lake events. If you were at the room crawl in 2015, I most likely served you a drink. (see profile photo) Anyway, I really love the spirit of Ohana and the FOM overall. Y'all are wonderful. For these reasons and, of course, my ongoing life-long love affair with all things related to tiki/Polynesian-pop culture, I would very much like to be considered for membership in the FOM.

I'm looking forward to meeting more of you on here and at the 2017 Ohana Luau at the Lake. (ooo...and at the 2017 Ohana by the Sea, if that's happening)

Cheers and mahalo!

Aloha welcome to the port. I trust I did sample your room crawl drink in 2015, but well I was drinking, so if you could jog my memory with your theme.

I was lucky enough to be a part of the Buna Bathtub 1940s USO themed room with the attached speakeasy.

The drink was the dirty cherry bomb, right? Great cocktail.

Welcome!

I take absolutely no credit for creating the amazing drinks. They were created by 2 others in my group. I was merely handing them out... and maybe drinking one or two.

And thank you for the welcome! I'm happy to be here.

Oh, question, is this forum available on phones? I downloaded an app but couldn't bring it up.

Aloha!

I use Tapatalk on my phone. It's not the same ux as a Web browser, but I can live with it for quick check ins.

2015? I was one of the identical cousins, as you can tell from my profile pic.

Haha! Yay!!! Yes, I'm very serious. I mean, as serious as one can be sipping a daiquiri while wearing a vintage muumuu. Lol...

And thank you!
