The Humuhumu Room
by 2 people
The Humuhumu Room is a teeny, tiny little enclave -- only 7' by 9', with lowish ceilings. There's a whole lot of stuff in this space: a bar with a sink & small refrigerator, a fountain, seating for five or six, and three almost-life-size palm trees. The most people I ever had in the Humuhumu Room was ten full-sized adults, not counting me behind the bar.
The Hawai'ian word for sewing is "humuhumu"; the Humuhumu Room also doubled as my sewing room. My vintage fold-up sewing machine table served as the central cocktail table. The room's name became my own nickname, and it has stuck ever since.
The Humuhumu Room closed in February 2003, when I moved out of the house it was built in.
