It Was A Lovely Luau…

More than a month before our big Luau Party last Friday, my staff and I were at Party City picking out the different decorations. We take partying very seriously here on the PB Reality Show, so we plan our events way in advance. The moment our guests enter the castle, we want them to have an unforgettable experience.

The minute they walked in the door the whole ambiance was festive! From the many colorful wall decorations, to the grass skirt around the table full of party snacks. The toucan balloon was floating high above it all, as the aroma of BBQ filled the air - everyone knew they were in for a good time.

It started off rather mellow as our DJ Winston played the traditional Hawaiian tunes and people gradually started arriving. But by 9:30, the party was in full swing and that’s when all the real fun started happening.

We had an authentic hula instructor give the girls a few lessons before the dance contest started. The ladies looked lovely in with their bikini tops and grass skirts as they practiced their dance moves. Some had hula-hoops and gyrated them around their hips. There was a limbo pole brought out and they each took turns ducking themselves underneath it to the beat of the music.

Outside in the back, our BBQ cook was busy grilling the shish kabobs. The Jacuzzi was full of lovely ladies in their sexy bikinis, sipping on Mai Tais. There were colorful lights draping every which way and the sound of laughter everywhere made it clear that this party was a great success!

As you can see from the pictures of the event - yes, it was a lovely Luau! Our motto on the PB Reality Show is: “It’s about celebrating life!” And, in deed, we were.

Showcasing PB

This last weekend we filmed a tour of hot spots along Garnet Avenue and Mission Boulevard for a new video showcasing PB. It was a blast! The first stop was Tower 23 where they opened up the whole wine room just for us. We tried their cheese plate which included varieties from France, the Netherlands, Wisconsin, and, of course, California. Their wine selection is quite eclectic.

We then went around the corner to the 710 Club, Moondoggies, PB Bar and Grill. The bouncers at Moondoggies are really friendly. It’s a great place to watch your favorite sport on the numerous TV screens. PB Bar and Grill is a local favorite (and that is why we are having the Miss Pacific Beach Contest there on Septmeber 14th). I liked the patio atmosphere and indulged on some of their nachos – D-lish!

We walked up to Cabo Cantina, The Tiki Bar, Bub’s Dive and then all the way up to Longboards. Cabo is always packed and the music is loud which makes it feel very festive. We stopped in at Longboards where the staff was very accommodating. We then went across the street to Hoboken’s Pizza. YUM! As soon as you walk in the aroma hits you. I don’t know what they put in that pizza but it sure tasted good. We then trekked back down on the other side of Garnet and checked out Typhoon’s, Johnny V’s, and even Dr. Love’s. (I’m not telling you what I bought there).

We turned the corner and went to Miller’s Field, the Firehouse, the Green Flash, PB Ale House, and ended up at PB Shore Club - a very popular place for us locals. The view of the Pacific Ocean is right there as you watch people stroll down the boardwalk. The service was fast and friendly. The place had a real PB vibe to it.

Our last stop on the tour was Beachwood. The music there was just was too much to resist and something took over my body as I found myself gyrating to the tunes on the dance floor. My staff was probably embarrassed but I just couldn’t help it. I haven’t watched the raw footage yet but I can imagine it looks like one of those cheesy, outdated 80’s music videos. I once again had proven that white boys can’t dance.

(Watch for the video coming out in the next few weeks).
