Thank you, Winter, that will be all. We're done here.
We are tossing the wool socks and sweaters. In fact, some of us are even jumping the gun and going straight into summer — a flash of sun and suddenly people are in cut-offs and flip-flops. Daylight savings? Pfft. We are on island time.
If you can't wait for beach weather, cruise over to the Eureka Veterans Memorial Hall on Saturday, March 29 at 6 p.m. for the luau ($17.50, free for kids under 6). Will there be tiny umbrellas in the drinks? Will there be hula dancing? You bet your hibiscus there will.
Make like mid-career Elvis and sip a Blue Hawaii while the Polynesian Dance Group sways to live music. When you get peckish, there'll be authentic Hawaiian Kahlua pig with coconut pudding and pineapple upside-down cake for dessert. Too decadent? No need to feel guilty — proceeds from the festivities and the raffle go toward maintaining the building. So stuff a few bills in the 50/50 bucket and hang loose.
