Most luaus proceed like this: First, there is a lei greeting upon arrival were you meet (and get a picture with) the Polynesian performers. Next, visitors are guided to their seating and beverages are served. Next, the pig is removed from the underground oven (imu) filling the air with the delicious smells of roasted “kalua” pork. Some luaus also have ancient Hawaiian games that can be learned and played by guests. Next, the food is served, usually, buffet style. The rest of the evening is spent enjoying the entertainment which includes live music, hula dancing, and a fire knife performance.
