Castaway Couture

Gilligan’s Island made Sherwood Schwartz’s other major contribution to society, The Brady Bunch, look like Shakespeare. It was foul. Worse, it was nonsensical. What the hell were a movie star, a brilliant professor, and a millionaire (and his wife!) doing on a mangy scow like the Minnow, anyhow? Mary Ann, the simpleminded yokel, was the only one who fit the three-hour-tour demographic – and look how she turned out. Yikes! Still, the series did instigate one of the longest-running debates in pop-culture history – Ginger or Mary Ann? – and you can state your case during the Ginger and Mary Ann Costume Contest. The competition’s part of the new Ladies (Wahine) Night weekly, which also includes a Hawaiian-shirt contest, DJ spins, food and drink specials, and giveaways.
