Finally, I drug myself to the bar for my Lapu Lapu in a pineapple and they were OUT OF PINEAPPLES. How does this happen??? I seriously volunteered to drive to the grocery store and buy them a pineapple. The next shipment wasn't coming in until the day we left. So, no Lapu Lapu for me

This time, I'm making the CL golf cart driver stop at the bar before he takes me to check in. Just kidding..... maybe...
I'm planning on trying a Lapu Lapu this upcoming trip ~ NO I've never had one!!! But, I was wondering...where it is served in a pineapple, do you tend to get a bunch of pineapple pulp in the drink??? I don't like pulp.

The pulp ends up being one of the best parts. You need a spork. Trust me, bring a spork. The alcohol soaks into the remaining pineapple meat, you use your spork and scrape the sides of the pineapple after your drink is empty.

People blanch at the cost of the Lapu Lapu, but honestly, you only need one, LOL. Scraping the sides just maximizes your value.

Soooo true! There's maybe 4-5 ounces of drink in the pineapple - we used the straw to try & scrape as much pineapple off the sides into the drink as we could...we were scraping long after the liquid was gone LOL!! If there hadn't been people around us on the beach we probably would have smashed the pineapple on the sidewalk so that we could have tried to bite more fruit out of it!!

Where is a member of the Lapu Lapu Spork Scraping Support Society when you need him/her?

I have been know to just drag one of our table chairs out there....and I always bring it back to the table! You can also look around and if someone has a table with chairs but isn't using them all, just ask if you can use one.

Have fun!!!
Thanks!! We aren't laying out people either...well, we used to be, but now with a 6, 3 and 1 year old that just doesn't happen

Since we're talking about Lapu Lapu's....just a few shots....

Then Wilson got a buddy....


That turned into a hidden Mickey!!!

You have to supply your own, but just stop at any KFC and stock up. It will be worth it.

The last time I did laundry on a trip was two years ago - at that time they took cash.

You can get a Lapu Lapu from the pool bar in a cup, rather than a pineapple, if you don't like the pineapple pulp!
