Mai Tais at Sunset

So I have one final favorite that I want to share with you this Mother’s Day. Here’s a hint…it includes mai tais at sunset.

If you live near Pacific Beach, you are probably familiar with the annual summer luau party that the Catamaran Resort hosts. You don’t have to be in Hawaii to feel like you’re on vacation. The Catamaran luaus are pretty authentic and are definitely a great way to spend a San Diego evening.

From the moment you step foot onto the grassy lawn that overlooks Mission Bay, you’ll be serenaded with tropical music, greeted with colorful leis and handed your soothing cocktail. After the ceremonial entrance of the pig, a fabulous buffet of fresh salads and fruits, Kalua pig, pork loin, miso glazed salmon, guava chicken and assorted rice and vegetable dishes awaits you.

While you feast, you’ll enjoy the sounds of the South Pacific and authentic dances and stories of the islands. As the sun goes down, the fire dancing begins, delighting all ages.

The Catamaran Resort Summer Luaus start in late June and run through August. There are generous discounts for military, and their children are invited to attend free. But readers of The Mom’s Guide to San Diego have the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Tuesday evening luau of their choice. (an $116 value!)

To enter to win, simply reply here with how you are planning to spend Mother’s Day. This prize will be awarded to one reader this Sunday!

    We love the luaus at the Catamaran! Happy hour at the Catamaran and the free fire dance show is also a great way to spend an evening for under $20. 🙂

    For Mother’s Day, we are having brunch and dinner with my husband’s family. Not sure what else! 🙂

    This Mother’s day-I plan on hosting a lunch for my mother and mother-in-law. Both of whom do so much for myself, my hubby and our children. Yes, it means cooking and cleaning when I technically should be relaxing, but I know one day I will hopefully get the same treatment from my wonderful son (3) and my amazing daughter (4). It’s the circle of life!
