Who is up for checking out the Paradise Cider Tasting Room?

I LOVE this hidden gem in the Kalilhi- Palama neighborhood. The owner has agreed to have 20 of us on Wednesday June 19th at 5:30. The 12 ciders are handcrafted in small batches with local fruit flavors and paradise in mind. Flights of 4- $8. Also can take your cider to go in a growler or 22oz bottle. **Limited food - Costco pizza $4 a slice and $2 bags of kettle chips. We can bring our own food to the tasting room. Parking is available in front but limited with spaces so we can park along the fence on Colburn. Uber is recommended also. Check out the available ciders: http://www.paradiseciders.com/about

Happy Hour: Hideout at the Laylow

Hideout Waikiki

We visited this place back in November. Everyone had such a great time, so we’re going back. This is an outdoor bar located on top of a Waikiki hotel with really comfortable couch seating. Here's how they describe themselves: "A hidden gem tucked away above the Kuhio Avenue hubbub, serving Modern Hapa Hawaiian cuisine morning, noon and night in a relaxed, open lanai setting. Find us in Waikiki’s newest urban oasis, The Laylow, Autograph Collection." If it rains we’ll try to grab seating under the awning around the bar. If anyone can join me early to help grab a couch I'd appreciate it! PARKING: Valet parking kind of pricey at $45.00, so maybe you can walk or take da Bus or something.

Hamama Falls

Hamama Falls

Short fun hike to get your weekend off right. This hike is along a dirt road so very hard to get lost off trail. It includes a local swimming hole for cooling off so bring something to bathe in, you’ll appreciate that you did because it also includes a fairly steep hill you gotta get up that will get your heart rate up. Nothing scary I promise. Payoff is a pretty waterfall and some beautiful pictures. This is listed as a 2 hour hike to include “frolicking” a dedicated hiker could be out and back in an hour( but what’s the fun in that ?) ***note**** a small group will be venturing off at a certain point to do some rappelling. If you have experience with that and are interested please contact Glen directly for more details. The main branch will be returning as they came after a quick swim. SAFETY TIPS FOR HIKING: 1. Bring sufficient water. Do not drink stream water. 2. Stay on the trail. 3. Allow ample time to return before nightfall by figuring 1.5 miles per hour. 4.
