If you’ve been to Aku Aku Tiki Bar, you know this place takes its tiki seriously – the artwork on the walls is authentic, the carved tiki gods are crafted by actual tiki artists, the cocktails are crafted with house-made syrups and real fruit juices and boy, do they pack a wallop. So we’re certain that this Makahiki celebration – an ancient Hawaiian New Year celebration – is going to be a truly ‘oia’i’o (we think that’s Hawaiian for authentic) event. Honor the god Lono with live music, hula dancers, tiki carving by Jeff Chouinard and fire dancers. And, since no true island celebration would be complete without a proper meal, there’s going to be a pig roast too. We may not be in Hawaii, but if Aku Aku’s throwing the party, it’ll be a pa’ina like no other. 

4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21 | Aku Aku Tiki Bar, 431 E. Central Blvd. | 407-839-0080 | akuakutiki.com | $10-$20
