Eat the Weekend….

Went to the Eat the Street event this past Friday at their new location, the former site of Fisherman’s Wharf just down the street. It was great! This food truck pop-up event now has a permanent site and has been rebranded as Makers & Tasters.

They built a deck with a bar and seating areas. They will be building bathroom structures soon.

There is also a stage near the waterfront area. Great place to catch the Friday night fireworks show. On stage this evening was the son of Kapena. He was awesome.

Met up with good friends Kimble and Kim. Here’s a pic of the best seller of the night, Pineapple Fried Rice. I had the fish & chips w/ sriracha-mayo from the Fish Lady. Spilled bacon mochi sauce all over my feet and limped home. Still, it was a fun night with great peeps!

On Saturday, I walked over to the McCoy Pavilion at Ala Moana Beach Park for Greek Festival 2015. It was extremely hot.

McCoy Pavilion is a great venue for any event. There were ongoing performances inside the air-conditioned auditorium.

I enjoyed a gyros and washed it down with an ice cold Mythos. The music and atmosphere were great. It got super crowded, and it was time to leave.

So blessed to live in the Ward-Kaka’ako area….

It’s Greek to Me….

After the GE repair guy came by today (dishwasher recall,) I walked over to the Greek Festival of Honolulu. It’s a pretty great event. This was only my 2nd time.

It’s held in the McCoy Pavilion at the Ala Moana Beach Park. It is the perfect venue for an event such as this. Today was a warm, sunny day, and it was packed!

Of course I had to have a gyro. It was so ono. I washed it down with an ice cold Mythos.

Inside the auditorium, I saw a delightful folk dance.

I also watched a stunning travel video on the Greek Islands.

Those incredible monasteries truly amazed me. I would love to visit!

Before leaving, I sampled the lukaniko sausage from the souvlaki stand. It was really good too! Spicy, savory, and slightly sweet.

Had a great time at the Greek Fest. Hope to visit Greece someday. For now, I’ll just enjoy this event to the fullest. Opa!

It’s Greek to Me

Went to the Greek Festival Honolulu 2011 today at the McCoy Pavilion, Ala Moana Beach Park. It was my first one. Always wanted go, but it was way too inconvenient with the traffic and crowds. Now, it’s a 15 minute walk from home. It was great.

There were food, crafts, & t-shirt booths, and live entertainment. The McCoy Pavilion is a really nice place for an event such as this….

There was a second stage in the auditorium with cultural dances and performances.

I had my gyros and my Aris, so I was good to go! Hope to visit there someday….
