As the concert would begin at 6 pm and so dinner quite late, we decided to go out for lunch at 'Oli'oli - our nearby Hawaiian restaurant. This time we arrived during regular hours, and they were doing a pretty good business. We didn't have trouble getting a table however, as some of the customers were dining on the lanai (patio).
At home, we eat mostly vegetarian foods and an occasional fish. So, when we eat out, K sometimes orders a meat dish and I'll have some seafood.
In one room (above) there is a SUMO SIZE Aloha shirt on the wall. Also note the map of Oahu and the Christian Larsen art poster. With the warm weather and slack key guitar music playing in the background, I felt like we were in Hawaii.
Later that night, after the concert, I had a disturbing run-in with a man who wanted to punish me for not eating at his restaurant which is located right across the street from the concert hall. K had parked the car in that lot and upon our return, the trouble started.
It was the chickens' "Angel of Death", the Joseph Mengele of avian death camps, yes, none other than SS-Hauptsturmführer Schanders, who grabbed me by the ears and tried to put my head in a vat of boiling oil and turn me into a bucket of extra-crispy! I punched him in his um, biscuits. His smile froze, he looked sort of cross eyed, and his grip loosened so I could break free just as K snapped this picture.
If you think that was exciting, wait until you read about the concert.
