Hawaiian flavors head to the mainland for this second annual fund-raiser, celebrating Roberta's nonprofit radio station. Pit master Daniel Delaney (BrisketTown) slow-cooks a heritage swine kalua-style (in a makeshift outdoor oven), accompanied by fried rice with maple-cured smoked ham from Chris Bradley (Untitled), tuna poke from Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. and pineapple-ham pizzas from Roberta's. La Newyorkina caps the Polynesian-inspired feast with tropical ice pops (coconut, papaya-passion). Work up the courage to bid at the night's food-inspired art auction—featuring pieces by Margarita Korol and Erin Jang—with Empire Brewing Company suds and Anfora's tequila cocktails. Global dance beats spun by DJ Reaganomics and an acoustic performance from songstress Odetta Hartman will keep the island bash raging until it's time to say a hui hou ("until we meet again").
