I might add that there is always a bottle or two of wine to complement the cocktail. Our notoriety is such that we almost once became a special interest clip on CNN. To the left, I'm wearing my Air Force One jacket and cap to toast an Air Force One drink. On this night there is always a local dessert, ranging from Japanese senbei (rice crackers) to Chinese rice cakes to Hawaiian haupia (coconut and milk pudding).
We then went to see a documentary on Hawaii's China Town. The film indicated that Honolulu needs a museum to commemorate the role played by local Chinese in the development of Hawaii...and China, for the founder, Sun Yat Sen, lived here as a student. Went to Iolani and Punahou. Here, his statue at the Chinese Cultural Plaza.
