Pulled off somewhat of a coup to get into The Plantation House Restaurant during the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.  The Restaurant is closed to the public during the golf tournament and it requires "proper credentials" to gain access.  I don't want to give out my covert secrets on how we scored the best table in the restaurant overlooking the First Tee Box and Opening Ceremony.  Lets just say look like you belong and act like you own the place :).  With the best table in the house secured we started the morning with a little Champagne and Bloody Mary's.  This was for "effect" only so we looked comfortable and like we belong.  Enjoyed the morning watching dignitaries from Hyundai and Golf Volunteers pose with the Tournament Trophy.  What the heck I said and we went down and took photos with the trophy.  Another covert secret that I cannot reveal.  Our waitress was very friendly and as the restaurant filled up was so busy that she really did not seem to realize that we were seated at the table for several hours.  Signs on the tables say there is a 90 minute limit at tables during the tournament.  We ordered breakfast as hula dancers graced the First Tee Box and the legendary Hawaii Recording Artist Willy K performed "Over the Rainbow" as recored by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole.  It was beautiful and accompanied by a elegant Hula performance.  I ordered up Beef Fajitas ($18) and was happy to see the huge portion of meat with beans, eggs and salsa.  This was really good stuff and a great way to fill me up before being out on the course for 8 hours.  Loved the Black Beans with lots of onions and the beef was tender and flavorful.  Yummy.  My friend ordered Lox and Bagel ($15) and he was amazed with the portion and taste.  Loved it but could not finish it.  We finished breakfast and watched the golfers tee off on the first hole.  Another hour passed and the restaurant was filled to capacity with people standing over our table watching the view.  We ordered another round of drinks and simply took in the moment at Kapalua.  Not to our surprise a gracious Manager came to our table and very politely asked if we could give up our table as the President of Hyundai had reserved the table for his group.  No problem we said, but can we stay for one more round.  "Of course" she said and we did.
