Luau Time at Rush Creek Bistro

What better way to celebrate anything than feasting yourself on some amazing food? Throughout the world, celebrations have often been accompanied by foods of all sort, but nobody does it better than the Polynesians & Hawaiians. They developed a truly unique way of celebrating that has since then been picked up all over the world.

Before contact with the western world, Hawaiians called their important feasts an ‘aha’aina, meaning gathering feast. These feasts marked special occasions like reaching a significant life milestone, victory at war, the launching of a new canoe or a great endeavor. They believed in celebrating these occasions with their friends and families.

Luaus were a chance to unite people and come together in celebration. The foods they enjoyed represented strength and goals the participants of Luau’s strived to achieve. Some of the foods were seen as so refined that they were off limits to commoners and women. Men and women also ate separately during meals.

Although these traditions have become a tad bit more Americanized one tradition of Luaus still rings true today. The wearing of flower lei necklaces by participants is a common staple at Luaus. Also entertainment of ukuleles, drums, and dancers is very common.

Join us for a traditional Luau experience! Rush Creek Bistro will be hosting their annual Luau dinner August 15th starting at 6:00pm. There will be an exclusive $19 buffet that features a Whole Roasted Pig, island spiced Tilapia, Neptune Salad, Hawaiian Potato Salad, Fresh Fruit, Caramel Baked Beans, Sweet Bread Rolls and Pineapple Upside Down Cake along with the Island Hopper drink feature. Live music will begin at 7:30pm featuring David Cisco. Call and make your reservations today!
