VH07V SPOTTED!

On Monday morning, Rice Fest received huge, national coverage from the Today Show when they covered both our Guinness World Record breaking attempt for the world's Largest SPAM Musubi and our SPAM Musubi eating contest. In the piece, our back-to-back defending champion "Uncle Rodney" wore his Red/Gold VH07V tee and got SPOTTED! in the national story. Kinda cool yeah?

Speaking of Rice Fest, I just gotsta take the time to briefly send a big shoutout to my friends who supported me and not only performed at Rice Fest, but also, to my surprise, wore their VH07V shirts. It really warms the heart of a brutha to get such support.

The Good Table Fundraiser

For the last three years, I have participated in a program called "The Good Table", an island-wide dining event in which tables are purchased at various restaurants across Oahu by groups or individuals who are then treated to a unique and custom dining experience. Proceeds from the sales of these tables go to Lanakila Meals on Wheels, Hawaii's largest and only island-wide meal service for seniors.

Although it is too late to purchase tables for this year, here's a little video that I encourage you to watch to perhaps inspire you to consider purchasing a table for next year.



New AroundHawaii article

Here's a link to my new AroundHawaii article called "Kona Kai Sushi - The Izakaya for Locals". If you read Lawai`a Magazine (a fishing magazine I write for), it may look familiar, as it ran in the last edition.
