Are you looking for an exciting and new way to entertain your friends? Have a luau party with a hog roast, exotic dancers, and a limbo pole. Your guests will love the summer theme of a luau on the beach. You will love the low expense when comparing the hog roast costs using La Caja China to expensive other cuts of meat for feeding large crowds.
Be sure to set the stage for your Hawaiian luau party. Set up tents with palm fronds, flowers, and tiki stands for the multiple drink areas. Invite everyone to wear Hawaiian themed dress like grass skirts, bikini tops, and colorful shirts and shorts. What is a luau without Hawaiian music? Either rent a few musicians or buy popular CD’s featuring ukulele music and traditional slack key guitars. Don’t forget to play Over the Rainbow by famed indigenous artist Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.
Be sure to promote the festive atmosphere with a shell or flower lei for each guest. Have them leave their shoes at the door as they walk on the sand and palm fronds you have placed on the ground. You can also have loose fresh or silk flowers for the ladies to place in their hair for fun and romance. A flower placed behind the right ear indicates availability, but a flower behind the left ear means you’re taken already.
Contact a local dance academy and arrange for a bevy of hula dancers to entertain and instruct your guests. As the night deepens, light tiki torches and admire the sundown with mai-tais and pina coladas for everyone.
Finally, the roasted luau pig is ready for the Grand Finale. A most appropriate menu could be Kalua Pig, poi, sweet potatoes, Lomi salmon, grilled pineapple, mango and papaya and mai tai and pina coladas to drink.
A whole roasted pig in La Caja China has a cost of only $800, approximately, as a hog weighs about 200 pounds and costs $4 a pound at the current price. Talking with your local meat market or butcher may lower the cost tremendously, especially if you invite the family to the luau.
