Looking For Fun?

July 30th, 2009

Howzit howzit!

Well last night's pah-tay was...... GOOD FUN! ๐Ÿ˜€

But pics and mo'olelo's will be posted tomorrow (hopefully) ๐Ÿ˜‰ so stay tuned.

In case you didn't know, there's the Honolulu Family Festival at Magic Island starting tonight and running through da weekend:

Thursday, July 30 - 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday, July 31 - 5 p.m. to midnight
Saturday, August 1 - 10 a.m. to midnight
Sunday, August 2 - 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
(click da link above for more info)

I haven't been to one at Magic Island yet but it must be pretty trippy to have something li'dat on an "island". If you've lived on Oahu long enough, you'd have to have at least gone to some kine of fair or carnivalย whether it be da 50th State Fair, Farm Fair, McKinley Carnival, Punahou Carnival, Iolani Family Fair.... da list goes on.

But all those fairs/carnivals truly miss one thing, real ambiance.

Can you imagine taking taking a date to watch a gorgeous sunset and then go ride some rides and eat carnival food all within footsteps of each oddah? I dunno about you but dat sounds like a plan! ๐Ÿ˜Ž Or maybe enjoying all da grinds and then taking a moonlit stroll hand in hand? I can imagine wat da view must look like from on top da ferris wheel. Ooooh la-la. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I tink it's a great idea dat came out of da Mayor's office and I hope it continues. There's no admission to get in, parking is FREE (good luck finding some although da City does provide a FREE shuttle), you can just go for grind and/or ride rides while listening to da smooth rhythmic sounds of rolling waves.

Do you tink da Honolulu Family Festival at Magic Island is a good idea?

Comeย share your mo'olelo's about your fondest memories of da fair - good or bad and let's play a game while we at it. Besides sharing your memories, post your favorite things about da fair dat's a must. For example, Ride da Zipper, Corn on da cob, etc.

For your efforts, Post #54 and #77 wins a two-pack of unlimited ride passes valid on:

Thursday, July 30 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Saturday, August 1 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sunday, August 2 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

A $50 VALUE!........ jus' for posting on WWD!. ๐Ÿ˜€

So no scade 'em go get 'em.

Shoots!

    BL, just wanted to stop by and say mahalo for the Kim Chee.
    I got home too late last night and left too early this morning. I hope my mother didn't eat it thinking it's tsukemono. Going burn her mouth.

    BTW, without giving away your secret ingredaments, can you tell me if it contains any shell fish, like ebi or squid guts. My brother is allergic to shell fish.

    Thanks again.

    RE: no can find parking: I give you all permission to call on my parking angel. His name is Walter. You tink I joking? Walter has been w/ me everywhere, incl Vegas and San Francisco.

    I just call out "Wallllterrrr. I need parrrrkinnnng. Please helllllp meeeee". My friends always wonder how I manage to get good parking at the junkest parking lots like Ige's, Ala Moana (during Nightclub Reunion), Hawaii Yacht Club... Walter is very generous, he'll help anybody.

    sally~

    I hope Walter is in a generous mood on Saturday...I going need it.

    You live close to Iolani?? My wife keeps telling me better start thinking of options IF/when our daughter graduates from Iolani...going need Walter (or maybe just a very nice sally) for parking on that day. Still looong time away...


  5. sally:

    @acuradriver02: I live down a private lane, no guest parking stalls. Otherwise I'd be happy to oblige. Kaimuki HS (Iolani Mauka) football field always beomes available for all Iolani events (like Family Fair) so you shouldn't have a problem.


  6. Ukuhead:

    BL: Since I going stop over, I going drop off fried rice for the OCD blogger. you like some too?


  7. HNL2LAS:

    onecupcoffee: HEY, for real they have flying saucers and pronto pups at the fair on Maui?? I thought that was a Kauai bon dance thing! huh, I learned something new! hee he...

    Makiki:
    BL - 2 days to the weekend I think you can do both.

    Was bugging me that this wasn't over 100. Next time gotta set the targets higher!

    Mahalos for helping WWD! hit da century mark! Higher target? Today was a fluke - usually I pray I get past 20. :roll:
