Matt, you are gonna have SO. MUCH. FUN! I'll bet you're excited! Baz and I are hoping to take our second stay on the Big Island in the fall - also staying at the Royal Kona, probably.

Enjoy! Hopefully you'll be able to post some pics when you get back!

rugbymatt & mongoloid
I would love to meet up for a few at Okolemaluna or even Don's Mai Tai bar there at the Royal Kona, tonight (Friday the 13th) I'm headed up to the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea to catch Maceo Parker flowing some funk upon the island, Saturday has been confirmed for an Ohana gathering, Sunday downtown Alii Drive is closed down for the monthly Village Stroll which will include live Hawaiian music and Hula performances on the lawn at Hulihee Palace directly downtown Kona> Perhaps afterwards or even early next week, you're on vacation so kick back and enjoy the island, if you surf - there has been consistent swell for almost a week straight.
Hope we can get a chance to hang at some point.

These are called Mini Coupes and are a great way to get around Waikiki, to go by Baileys get a Hawaiian shirt, stop at Leonards and get some malasadas, swing by Ono Hawaiian and get some lau lau and poi. Cant go on the highway with these but you can go over to Kailua and cruise around town exploring. Easy to park! They rent em at the Hawaiian Monarch. Shoots i think the phone # is on the picture (808) area code.






where u put da surfboard, brah?!?!?

I want to recommend this tour. It is by far the best Pearl Harbor experience possible. It makes "pick-ups" at the major hotels, gets into secret areas on all bases active 12/07/1941, breaks for lunch at an officer’s club and has excellent prices in the Tiki bar/ museum. Here is a link to the tour details and one to their new brewing company.

Mahalo!

Just spent a week and a half on Oahu and the Big Island. Most of the places we visited have already been discussed here, so I won't duplicate, but there is one Kona location didn't see mentioned. Rays on the Bay at the Sheraton in Keauhou actually had one of the best Mai Tais we found. We're not convinced they followed their advertised recipe exactly (they were missing the mint, at least), these are a lime/rum mix with no OJ or pineapple juice. Just behind the bar/area, the hotel has spotlights that shine into the water at night, attracting plankton & Manta Rays. It's an easy way to see them without even having to get wet!

Aloha bamalamalu,
Rays on the Bay is very new, opened just last month I believe, you're the third person I've heard mention that the drinks are worth trying. I'll be letting you know what my experience is like.
Here's a link to the drink menu.

Going to Oahu at the end of April. SO excited! This will be the last of our big vacations for my husband and I. I am now 7 weeks pregnant with our first child
Aside from Leonard's, Chuck's, Rainbow Drive-In, and International Marketplace... what are some good suggestions for a vivacious appetite?

Next time your on the Big Island reserve an excursion with my old high school buddy Jeff Dickinson to get up and close with Pele and the lava flow. He has alot of knowledge of Kilauea and the islands and will make sure you are safe while you get to experience mother nature at work.
