In Summer 1989, a little over a year after the creation of the Fredrico, Kathleen and I returned to the Mauna Kea to celebrate my 50th birthday. We took over the Beach Bar and surrounding areas. This party set new records for the consumption of the medicinal beverage. I was awarded, as a birthday present, a new golf putter adorned with the following: leis, a carpenter’s level, a lucky rabbit’s foot, a measuring tape, and a small candle that could be lit for night putting. Photos from this party are not suitable for polite society, but I can assure you that a good time was had by all. This event went down in history, and as a result, many other significant Fredrico parties were held in Hawaii and on the Mainland.
