Roast suckling pig, mai tais and the fire knife dance.
It must be luau time again at the Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino.
Beginning Saturday, May 5, the popular seasonal attraction returns by the Shangri-la pool on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday evenings through Sept. 29, 2007.
For the 16th consecutive year, guests of the Imperial Hawaiian Luau will be greeted with an island lei and then feast at an authentic all-you-can-eat Hawaiian buffet featuring roast suckling pig and prime baron of beef. Entrees also feature Haleiwa BBQ pork ribs, baked salmon, pan-seared tuna, pork loin, short ribs and huli huli chicken, a Hawaiian specialty. The extensive menu also includes an abundant salad bar including peel-and-eat shrimp and seafood ceviche, tropical fresh fruits, and a scrumptious variety of mouthwatering desserts. Unlimited mai tais, pina coladas and fruit punch accompany the meal.
The feast is followed by the romantic call of the conch shells, and then an exhilarating and colorful Polynesian music and dance tour through Tahiti, Samoa, Hawaii, Fiji and New Zealand. The revue has colorful new Tahitian and hula costumes, and this seasonís audiences will have the opportunity to participate in a Tahitian dance contest.
And, as always, the luau is decorated with the Imperial Palaceís signature fruit and vegetable carvings.
