Luau Larry's is "a must" visit while in Avalon. The drinks are great and the bar is lively. There is live music on weekends.

While on the island, you must stop by and get the wiki wacker. It's a decent rum punch and includes a goofy hat. It's just a fun place to have a cocktail and a good laugh.

1. The drink was $9 when I was there and comes with a hat. 2. It is served in a tall hurricane glass so about 12 oz. 3. I think 6 at the cave table. 4. Email Lisa. Trip Advisor does not allow me to post her email address.
