Great Gatsby-Speakeasy Costume Party

Grand Opening of Mahiko Lounge, Gaylord’s at Kilohana, Saturday, Feb. 9, 6:30 p.m., $55
“Kilohana has been renovating and redecorating the living room of the manor house in anticipation of our new bar, Mahiko Lounge,” says Robin Velazquez of Gaylord’s at Kilohana. “We have put a great amount of effort into creating a new vibe for the room and we plan to share this new energy with our Gaylord’s guests as well.”
This SaturdayGaylord’s at Kilohana is hosting a costume party for flappers, gangsters, bootleggers, and socialites for a night of 1920s glamour and revelry. This party is to celebrate the grand opening of Mahiko Lounge and is a Kauai United Way fundraiser.
Cane Field Clothing & Gallery (upstairs at Kilohana) has roaring 20’s accessories in stock. But, you don’t need to come in costume. There’ll be accoutrements like feather boas and period hats available. Over $600 in prizes will be awarded.
Heavy pupus  include Bootleg Beef Crostini, Hemingway Poached Prawns, Oysters Rockefeller, Speakeasy Smoked Salmon, Great Gatsby Antipasti, and a fabulous dessert selection.
A Champaign toast is included in the price. The no-host bar will feature the Koloa Rum Runner, Classic Sidecar, Highball Bee’s Knees and Hawaii 5/0. Beer and wine will be available, all at old time prices.
Live piano music will be in the lounge and Swing Katz will be spinning retro-electro swing music for dancing in the courtyard. Listen to a sneak preview of some of the music by Swing Katz. 
There’s complimentary salon services (so you can really look the part), complimentary photo booth, classic cars and even a cigar lounge. For costume ideas, check out Gaylord’s at Kilohana Facebook page.
All net proceeds go to support the vital work of Kauai United Way’s 29 Participating Agencies. For reservations, call 245-9593.
