Sometimes it is great to get together with family and friends and enjoy a back yard cookout. The problem is that this type of get together while nice seems to grow old quickly since everything is always the same. So why not shake up your next outdoor cookout this summer by turning it into a Hawaiian Luau. No, You don’t have to roast a whole pig and you don’t even need a beach but a few exotic drinks, some great seafood and ask everyone to come in a Hawaiian costume will certainly shake things up a bit.
People love to put on their Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts to these types of events. In fact, dressing up in Hawaiian costume is expected. This will give everyone a good laugh while eating delicious food at your next Hawaiian Luau. The costume party has been overdone, but a Hawaiian costume party still has some originality left to it. Moreover, you will not have to worry about you or your guests finding appropriate attire to the Luau since Hawaiian dress and costume are easy to come by.
In addition, a Hawaiian cookout party is not the only type of party one can throw in their backyard.

You can make some authentic BBQ dishes and have everyone dress up in western style clothes like mining prospectors, cowboys, saloon girls, cowgirls and much more. Throw a couple of steaks on the grill and some other BBQ items and before you realize it, you will be in the old west with your friends and family.
