Enjoyed some nice cocktails and pupu's at the Trump Waikiki.  This indoor/outdoor bar is great during the sunset and evening hours but is a bit hot when the sun is beaming into the place during the day.  The service during our visit was top notch.  While all of the lanai tables were reserved in advance for the the Friday night Fireworks from the Hilton Hawaiian Village, the host let us know what table we could have and until what time.  Seems most are reserved around 7:00 PM just prior to the Fireworks display.  We settled into the oversized couches and chairs that surrounded a large table with a revolving center.  The polite and gracious waitress quickly moved in to welcome us and take our drink orders.  My rich friend with an unlimited expense report ordered double orders of Crispy Thai Chicken Wings ($9), Ahi Sashimi ($12.50) and Poke of the Day ($9). The food arrived quickly along with another round of drinks.  The Chicken Wings are a bit sweet with just a hint of heat, the Poke was a bit bland and the Sashimi was, well Sashimi.  Nothing here to rave or complain about.  Checking the menu I found that they also offer a Shrimp Salad, Nachos, Cheese Platter and a few more Sushi choices.  A glass of wine during Sunset Hour (3:00 to 6:00 PM) is $6.  This is a good deal for their wine as they go from $10 to $20 plus per glass.  I liked the atmosphere at Wai'olu.  You can wear a pair of shorts and golf shirt or get dressed up like some people did.  I opted for shorts and fell right at home.  The service and staff was excellent and make me want to return.  If you want to try the Worlds Best Mai Tai, they have the winning concoction at Wai'olu.  Their version of the Hawaiian Classic tourist drink was selected as Worlds Best in 2011.  Link below to my earlier post on Wai'olu.
