***There's a give-away at the end of this post***
Last week, I was thrilled to participate in a blogger luncheon sponsored by UpTake and the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau. Basically a bunch of travel and food bloggers got together for drinks and lunch. I know, I'm not a travel or a food blogger (yet) but I am fun at parties.
The first thing I discovered was that they eat some interesting things in Hawaii and they are all fun to say. Seriously, Loco Moco. It's basically a bowl of rice, topped with a hamburger patty, topped with fried eggs, topped with gravy.
Flights to Hawaii are quite affordable now and there are some deals to be had. I can't wait to go. Everyone shared their favorite things to do and see. There was an interesting discussion about how President Obama's leadership style can be traced to his Hawaiian roots. (Coco)Nut shell: I had a great time. Mahalo.
I had the opportunity to visit with Gudrun, The Kitchen Gadget Girl again. She always asks everyone their favorite kitchen gadget and seemed so disappointed when I professed my love for my now defunct apple corer. Honestly, I don't have many gadgets. But in an attempt to be creative I tried to convince her that I'm now over the moon for my gravy boat. Dude, it's from Restoration Hardware.
I enjoyed hearing Amy's take on the BlogHer Conference. Amy's blog was voted one of the top 5 food blogs by Forbes. Through her, I found this list of 100 Things To Try Before You Die and I can't wait to get started.
I was given a copy of Willie K's latest CD to share with you. Probably safe to say your CD collection is short on Hawaiian artist. He's described as:
I'm giving away his latest CD The Uncle In Me. See, even the album titles are fun to say in Hawaii.
