LOUD Hawaiian Shirt Contest and Luau

Aloha! Back by popular demand, it's the Energizers signature event . . . the LOUD Hawaiian Shirt Contest and Luau! Last year's inaugural event was a huge success, so we're hoping this year's luau will be even bigger and better.

Looking for something fun and colorful to do on a dreary, late winter day? Do you have a really bright, tropical shirt (or other garment) that borders on the obnoxious? Then come join the Energizers at a luau made just for you!

We will gather in the "John Wayne" room of the Vintage Brewery for a party that is sure to chase away the messy March blues. Simply wear a Hawaiian shirt or other tropical garb. I only ask that you keep yourselves covered--no thongs or string bikinis, please! There will be a contest with fabulous prizes for:

1. The LOUDEST Hawaiian shirt

2. The most festive tropical ensemble

We will be dining on appetizers featuring pork sliders (or sandwiches) and fresh fruit. Cash bar will be available. Also, if you play a ukulele, bring it!

Hope to see you there.

    Thank you all for attending, and it was a great pleasure to host such a fun, colorful event. A special thanks goes to Lori for her stellar photography services. She really captured the spirit of the event in pictures. Also, congratulations to Dave W. for winning the prize for LOUDEST Hawaiian shirt and to Donna for most festive tropical ensemble. Honorable mention goes to Dana for his awesome shirt. The luau is becoming a highly anticipated annual Energizers event, so we'll look forward to doing it again next March. Aloha!

      That is a bummer, David. Hang on to your shirt, because I'll be doing this party again next year. Maybe there'll be an event like this between now and then. Cheers!

    Here's a spot opening up! I have to be out of town starting that day. I'm very disappointed that I won't be there to see all the bright colors (and bright people) Aloha!

    Really? There's room for 75 people? Well, then, I guess I can't miss this one.

    February 25, 2013

    • Dave

      The catch is that there are only 50 shirts so some will have to share.

    As soon as I saw this posted, I was one of the first ones to RSVP yes. It sounds like a fun event. Now that I look at the date again, it dawned on me that I can't be there. I'm leaving for Vegas on the 6th to play in a baseball tournament. I'm sure you will all have a great time. When Jean is hosting, it's always a good event. I'll have to save my shirt for another time.

      You're welcome! We have enough space at the Vintage, and I ordered more food. I'm really looking forward to seeing folks in their tropical garb. This should be a fun, festive event!

    I'll have a box for donations by the entrance the night of the luau. I use them to settle the bill that night. No need to donate in advance! :)

    Hi, everyone! I can hardly believe that our signature luau will be here before you know it. What a welcome change from our freezing rain, snowy, windy, and cold weather to have a fun, tropical party to go to! I'm really excited about this event, and I hope you are too. I'm looking forward to seeing you in your LOUD festive shirts and tropical ensembles.
    I've ordered food for the party, and we will be dining on: pulled pork sliders (Hawaiians eat a lot of porK!), cheese & crackers, fresh fruit, grilled chicken skewers, and mini cupcakes. I humbly request a suggested donation of $5 to $10 to help cover the cost of the food. If you choose not to participate in the food, I totally understand and would not expect a donation.
    I'll see you all at the Vintage on Whitney Way in a few weeks!
