BTW to clarify, the Hawaiian plate lunch is not free - "courtesy' means they're providing it, not sure of the price yet but it'll be both affordable and worth it! Aloha.

I am looking forward to this since its going to be such a nice day.

Too bad I went out last night and drank just a tad too much. Hopefully the hang over burns off before 2!



EDIT: Besides it being hot the food was pretty yummy. Good to see some of the Ohana. Music was great. Only thing I would try to do is have more chairs so people (esp those in dresses **hint, hint**) had a place to sit and eat.

Good times! Great hula dancer and fun band... although the uke player seemed to have tackled a bucket of Mai-Tais for breakfast

Bummer about not having the full drink menu available, but I definitely understand the reasoning. The bartenders were great, as usual, and me and the missus had a great time.

Thanks, F.I.!
