• Lin’s Asian Buffet

• This month's theme:  "Kaua`i, the Garden Isle"

Aloha to our Kanikapila Ohana, our musical family consisting of some of the most gracious, hospitable, fun-loving ukulele folks on the planet!!!!!  

We celebrate Hawaiian music and culture and we welcome all Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Ukulele Players, as well as, their families and friends!! Kanikapila literally means“play music”and we’d like to invite everyone in North Texas, or those here for a visit, to come join us, be yourself, and just take it easy ~ Hawaiian-style! 

We also strive to take a closer look at Hawaiian words and phrases, as well as, the Hawaiian alphabet, and we try to sing more Hawaiian-language songs, as well as, those tried-and-true Hapa-Hole songs!  Even if you don’t play the uke, you can come sing, dance the hula, or just have a good time! Open mic performances are always welcome!!!  Mahalo and Aloha!

The Aloha Spirit is alive and well in Texas!!!

Our meetup will be in the restaurant’s semi-private room at the back of the restaurant.

    Since there's not a "maybe" option, I had to put "no". I will try to come, but I teach swimming lessons until 6:15, so it 's a little hard to get there. I'll see nearer the time. I'd LOVE to come if I can!!!!

    1 · June 4, 2014

    • Obed D.

      By all means, Lesley, if you can make it, please do! Even if you do come a little late, that'll be just fine. And, if you can't make it this time, maybe, we'll see you next time. Aloha!
