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...
(notice Rick showcasing the IntelliGo for us at Oceanic? 8) )
Side note: Rick is not much of a cooked fish fan, but this dish was a winnah for him. See how much so below...
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!
