You’ve always dreamt of a Hawaiian luau birthday, but you’re pretty sure you can’t afford it right now and you’re definitely sure none of your friends would make the 12-hour flight. Thankfully, you can still throw on that Hawaiian shirt you bought and go hula under palm-thatched ceilings at Trader Vic’s. You’ll find plenty of other large groups here sharing communal Scorpion Bowls and busting out embarrassing dance moves. Order a Cosmos Tidbits pupu platter with crispy prawns, crab rangoon, char siu pork, and BBQ ribs for the table and you should be all set. And if you can, plan your Pacific Island getaway for a Thursday when there’s live music and $6 Mai Tais after 8:30pm.
