Tides Folly Beach wants to save mainlanders the hassle of a tropical island trip.

Tides Folly Beach is stocking the buffet with a number of popular Hawaiian meat dishes for its second annual end-of-summer luau.

Although the hotel didn’t spring for Spam, a $65 ticket to the Sept. 13 evening bash includes access to an open bar and an all-you-can-eat mess of huli huli chicken, loco moco mahi mahi – lapped by mango salsa instead of the traditional brown gravy – roasted pork and laulau, or steamed shrimp. Chief Kamu and his hula dancers will provide the entertainment.

The event also includes music from the Kristi Starr Duo; door prizes and a movie on the beach. Pre-purchased tickets are recommended, but not required: To buy, call 588-6464.
