Insiders meet in Honolulu

As promised in the discussion Hawaiian Itinerary set (HNL-KOA-OGG) here is the first picture of the trip.

bejacob and kharada46 with their better halves after enjoying a lovely dinner at the Yard House in Waikiki.

 

This meeting took place on the 2nd night of a 10-day visit to Hawaii. One of the great things about Insider get togethers is that we're already friends before we ever meet face to face.

 

2015 has been a great year for me to meet members of this community. I've visited with pluto77, foxglove, brightlybob, and now kharada46. I look forward to more Insider meet-ups in 2016.

 

As I go through the rest of my Hawaii photos, I'll get a few more posted along with appropriate commentary.

    Smart-looking group. Okay, meeting with the kharada46's, I gotta know: What was the menu? I know it had to be delicious!

      My favorite at the Yard House is the vampire tacos.  Highly recommended!  They are better than the fish tacos which is my usual standard order anywhere I can find them

      Now that's a trip we should all take, knocking on the door of erc's joint and all yelling out SURPRISE when he opens the door.

    Looks like a wonderful time was had by all and as usual smiling faces all around.  Great that you guys go to connect and enjoy some time visiting, but the real question is who had the best "prescribed meds"?

        Great photo of "The Breakfast of Champions"!

         

        The day goes "Downhill" after a "Pick-me-up" like that drink!

        I'm diggin' that drinkin' vessel, too. "Beyond the still -- Mason jars: They're not just for moonshine and hillbillies anymore."

          Oh yeah foxglove, especially here.  It's a huge fad now to go and get a Mason Jar lemonade from a slew of different vendors at the farmers markets.  There's even a bunch of other restaurants that use Mason Jars with and without handles for their drinks.
