The Hawaiian Islands shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by the shore to dive for the delicious mahi-mahi, coconuts, and grilled pineapple growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport yourself to this legendary culinary region with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one admission to a Hawaiian dinner buffet and Polynesian show along with one shell lei at Hula Mamas, located in Humble (a $39.99 value for people aged 13 and up; a $29.99 value for kids aged 5–12). Kids under five are admitted free (limit two/family). There is a strict limit of one Groupon per table/reservation.
Hula Mamas presents a buffet of Hawaiian favorites alongside an authentic Polynesian show that treats eyes to hula routines, live music, and fire knife dancing. As shell leis drape each visitor who enters the island-themed show, the tinkling of shell against shell creates a soothing tropical sound that notifies nearby hermit crabs of open apartment space. A live island band plucks at heartstrings as the buffet line opens to an overflowing smorgasbord of dishes such as pulled pork, mahi-mahi, and other succulent favorites.
A 45-minute to one-hour revue begins soon after the buffet, replete with traditional hula dancing and enlightening facts about Polynesia. Watch in astonishment as the fire knife dancers twirl their rapidly conflagrating implements in the world's most dangerous marshmallow-roasting ceremony.
