Closer Look: Mai-Kai in Fort Lauderdale

1 of 22
Mai-Kai 3599 N. Federal Highway Ft. Lauderdale, FL (954) 563-3272,
One of the best parts of any holiday is sitting back and watching the family show. Aunt Mildred is probably hollering at Uncle Bob for who-knows-what, and your sister is probably throwing a fit about your mom not catering to her newest dietary whim. (She's a gluten-free pescetarian this year.) Unfortunately, when you take the cooking — and possibly the family — out of the equation, the day can be kind of boring. For those of you looking to get some Thanksgiving entertainment, this over-the-top retro-Polynesian spot is serving a special holiday meal with or without a show. For $41 with a show, $30 without, and $15.95 for kids 12 and under, Mai-Kai will prepare patrons a pupu platter with turkey or ham and all the American fixings. Besides, you know you'll walk out with some superclassy holiday photos.
