Have you ever met a blog post that didn’t have an iPhone? Now you have. But I figure given the subject matter, my poor Droid quality photos fit just nicely with the “on the rocks/blurry” theme. Which last night kind of was. So consider these gritty 5-mgpxls an aesthetic desicion. I’m an artist, ‘kay?
Last night Honolulu’s top mixologist (Nobu’s Dave Newman, thirtyninehotel’s Christian Self, among others—what up, Maria Burke!) got together to fashion some DiSaronno creations at the Young Market’s-organized event at the Halekulani Garden Terrace. I mean, I’mm nt a rlly big drnker but I kinda of llove DiSanronnona, cnan you tellnfrom thsse typpos?? Far superior photos on Honolulu Pulse here.
Tim Rita, the head bartender of Lewers Lounge, took home the honors (just two votes over Christian), with his “Don de Coco”—an amaretto, Dewar’s, Italian basil leaf and nutmeg concotion that had me loosening the knot off my tie and undoing my top button. Like, buy me a drink first, Tim Rita! Oh, wait…
Afterwards, it was off to my first movies at HIFF. SOUND X VISION’s THE WONDER YEAR (pictured above with Josh) and the opening of EuroCinema with WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN (which we need to talk about later, but I’m still processing it).
Who else caught 9th Wonder in action? Still picking your faces off the floor because he melted it off or what?
