How to Throw a Luau

I know what you're thinking: luaus don't make anyone outside of Hawaii look cool. No one wants to dress up like their dad in a bad Hawaiian shirt. 

But I'm here to tell you that that's where you've been going wrong. Hawaiian theme doesn't have to mean pineapples and cheap leis. And that's where Sheldon Simeon comes in. This is the guy who competed on Top Chef and has been nominated twice for a James Beard Award. We sat down with Sheldon to get the real deal on throwing a luau. And in his version you get to have a lot of poke and learn about cool new Hawaiian designers. So I'd watch the video above to learn how to throw a pretty amazing party that changes the game and all of your misconceptions.
