Aloha! Fire was flying and cool drinks flowing at Newport Harbor Yacht Club’s 2014 Skipper’s Luau. The yacht club’s main dining room and outdoor patio made the perfect intimate setting, rich in history and set against a beautiful sunset.
As guests arrived they were treated to a traditional lei greeting, and then packed the club’s patio for cocktail hour on a picture perfect Southern California evening. Guest nibbled on yummy passed appetizers and signature Mai-tai’s, to celebrate the club’s opening day festivities.
Just before dinner, the team from Island Inspirations really warmed things up with their polynesian dancers and impressive fire dancing performance. Their authentic costumes and big smiles set the tone for a very fun evening. After a delicious dinner complete with fresh handmade tortillas grilled right on site, guests danced the night away to the tunes of the Citrus College Night Shift Band, an amazing live band ensemble. And of course, what party is complete without a photo booth, complete with fun props!
