The Good Table at SOUL Restaurant

October 8th, 2010
By



Last night, Rick Nakama and his wife Kelli invited wifey and I to SOUL Restaurant for dinner. This wasn't just any dinner though... it was a dinner to benefit Lanakila Pacific's Meals on Wheels' annual "The Good Table" event which involved over 50 participating restaurants striving for one common goal: To end senior hunger.

At precisely 6pm, guests at each participating restaurant got to chow down on some mean off-the-menu specials in the name of charity. Us social media heads even got to upload our photos directly to Lanakila Pacific's flickr stream and hashtag our tweets using the uber-trending #GoodTable.

Here are the sights - from our perspective - last night at SOUL...

A big mahalo to Rick and Kelli Nakama for letting us join you for such a scrumptious, and unforgettable dinner. A hearty thank you to Chef Sean Priester (and the SOUL Restaurant staffers) for working overtime, cooking up a storm for us. Thank you also to all of the other participating restaurants and tireless volunteers for helping to put on this wonderful event. Lastly, big ups to Lanakila Pacific and their Meals on Wheels and The Good Table programs. It's selfless giving from organizations like you who make this world a better place for those in need. Mahalo!

Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? - October 6, 2010

October 6th, 2010

Before we get started with this week's WIH contest, here's a neat little tidbit for us to chew on:

There are 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays all this month. I was told this only happens once every 823 years, but I'm pretty sure it happens a lot more often than that. Either way, neat-o nonetheless don'tchathink? Let's make the most of it y'all!

K, let's mix things up again and try something a little different. Since it's Brocktober, er October this month, let's go with the Halloween theme all month. They may not work very well in terms of guessing locations, but I'm sure we can have fun captioning the heck outta some of these. K, we go try!
