Aloha e fellow Silver Screen and Rollers!
This is the second in a series of fanposts for planning and coordinating the fun we're gonna have in Hawaii this summer!
It's great that there's enough interest for potentially two meet-and-greets, so if you're available to visit Hawaii after August 10, please let me know. I'll update the guest list at the bottom of this fanpost as people sign up. If there's enough interest, I'll set up a series of fanposts for M&G #2.
In the meantime, here's where we stand with M&G #1:
|• Location:||Honolulu, i.e. the island of Oahu|
|• Dates:||June 18 - June 30, 2012|
For those attending, or planning to attend M&G #1, what would you like to do while you're here in Hawaii? These can be things to do for the whole group, or things you'd like to explore and experience for yourself. I'll recap the ideas proposed so far, and let the brainstorming begin — after the jump. . . .
Ideas on the Table:
(as of April 26, 2012)
|Proposed by||Description||Date(s)||Location(s)||Group activity?||Notes|
|I3oh||UCSD history-class finals||June 26||No (thank God)||This is wrong on so many levels, but at least I3oh gets to come out to Hawaii and play.|
|I3oh, Koshu||Breakfast, local style||TBD||Kailua||Yes||One choice for a venue stands out: Boots & Kimo's, in Kailua (on the Windward side of Oahu). This place is where macadamia-nut pancakes reportedly originated, and they serve many other local-style classics. Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach — world-class beaches with fine white sand — are nearby, so let's head over there after breakfast to have some fun (SCG: Kailua Beach Park has a walking/jogging path, and shower stands).|
|Koshu||Pau hana (happy hour)||TBD||Ala Moana Center||Yes||I'm leaning toward doing this at Mai Tai Bar at Ala Moana Center (nice mix of tourists and locals) so that the ladies can get their drink and shop on. However, if we meet in the late afternoon, it might be nice to have drinks at Longhi's on the makai (ocean) side of the mall to catch the sunset.|
|So_hee||Spa treatments||TBD||Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort||Yes||So_hee to arrange.|
|So_hee||Welcome dinner||June 20||Waialae Iki||Yes||So_hee's family to prepare appetizers, entrees and desserts. Koshu to bring drinks.|
|So_hee||Scuba diving||June 25 or earlier (see Notes)||TBD||Yes||Divers should wait at least 24 hours before flying out of Hawaii (proposed activity date based on I3oh's and SCG's departure date).|
|SoCalGal||Triathlon training||June 20 - 27||Various on Oahu||LOL, sure (typo)||I'll hold a stop watch, and shout encouragement through a megaphone.|
OK, look forward to hearing from you!
