THE LOCAL AT HONOLULU AIRPORT

THE LOCAL AT HONOLULU AIRPORT
DANIEL K INOUYE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
300 RODGERS BLVD
HONOLULU, HI  96819

Heading out of the Honolulu airport for the Holidays and stopped into The Local for a quick bite.
Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos not bad and the Summer Rolls were a bit bland but ok too.  Service good for an airport restaurant.

I like Rum Fire at the Sheraton for the views and people watching along Waikiki Beach.  If you can grab a seaside table on the right side of the restaurant facing the ocean at sunset it is one of the best seats in Waikiki.  Met a long time friend named Mad Dog here to start the Holiday's prior to us both leaving for Asia trips.  Our little reunion to enjoy some pupus and drinks turned into a party when some friends showed up who were just coming off a catamaran ride and just happened to walk by us. Invited them to have a drink and the Mai Tai's and Champagne started flowing.  



CHEESE PLATTER WAS REALLY ONE OF THE WORST EVER

LAPHROAIG PRIVATE DINNER AT VINTAGE CAVE CAFE

LAPHROAIG PRIVATE DINNER
VINTAGE CAVE CAFE

I don't drink Whiskey or Scotch so what was I doing at a very private Laphroaig dinner at Vintage Cave?  This dinner was set up by the local distributor of Laphroaig for hard core Whiskey connoisseurs of which I am not.  It was dinner at the Vintage Cave Cafe that attracted me and I wanted to get more educated on the craft and history of Whisky.  Wow...what an evening.  First class all the way and even though I could not appreciate the Whiskey as I never drink the stuff, the food and party were amazing.  Loved this evening at Vintage Cave.

SNACKING AT HOME

I was craving some Nachos while watching a football game at home.  Headed into the pantry and found Tortilla Chips, Refried Beans and some JalapeƱos.  In minutes I had some great tasting Nachos to enjoy during the game.  Yummy!
