Hula Dancing, in the middle of Texas?

I was a little skeptical at first. However, the thought of witnessing a little bit of Hawaii in this city of complications might be quite refreshing.

We drove out to the town of Humble. I wasn’t sure what to expect as most businesses in Texas are homes converted into shops/restaurants. Sure enough, this was what the restaurant looked like:

I was informed by the fiance that his co-worker is one of the dancers performing at Hula Mama’s. We were very excited. Inside the restaurant, we were warmly greeted by the staff who then put seashell necklaces over our necks. The live band was already playing and I was very impressed with the ambience in general. I really did feel like I was in Hawaii.

The singing and music were great. The dance performance was even more spectacular! As intended by the host, the dances were traditional Polynesian, unlike the dances in most Hawaiian resorts where they are more commercialized. The staff and performers involved the audience in most of the dance sessions, which were very entertaining. They did a good job!

That night, most of the guests were my fiance’s co-workers, their family and friends. We were suppose to celebrate one of my fiance’s co-workers’ birthday, but he didn’t show up. All in all, we had a great time. The dinner and dance show came to about $40 per person. Dinner was served buffet-style. I would recommend anyone to try it out!
