The hot list
Party on the high seas with the return of the popular FireWater Moonlight Party tomorrow night, when hundreds of feel-gooders board the three-level Ali'i Kai catamaran for a night of open-air frivolity.
The yacht party goes down like any other club event, only this one happens to be aboard a boat. This is only the third party of its kind since the debut event last April, and it's become a highly anticipated night on — or away from — the town.
FireWater Moonlight Yacht Party / Ali'i Kai catamaran; boarding at Pier 5 near Aloha Tower / tomorrow, 10:30 p.m.-1:30 a.m. (check in at 8:30, boarding 9-10:30 p.m.) / $25 / tickets available online at www.firewaterevents.com / 21+
