The Mustache family is in final sightseeing mode this week before heading back to the mainland on January 13th to brave the rest of winter in Colorado. We’ve got a rental car and everything now, so we are squeezing in all the distant destinations of Oahu throughout the week (it’s a whole 2-hour drive from end-to-end at the prevailing low speeds). Up to now, we’ve been generally staying within sandal range of the house, since everything you really need is right here. And man, what a nice time we have had living here. Peaceful. I will miss it.
So anyway, a few people have suggested we hang out one last time. This Friday night, we’ll be in Honolulu to catch the sunset and the fireworks, and there’s a perfect place on Waikiki beach that seemed rather Mustachian in nature to me when I scoped it out on an earlier walk past. A public park, green and filled with beautiful trees, is right there on the beach, in the midst of all the expensive hotels. There are even picnic tables and charcoal grills, so anyone can go there and get the same benefits the guests at the Hilton get next door.. for free. I like it. This is the spot, right at the center of the map:
When: 4PM ’til whenever*
Of course, on that particular night, the MMM family actually DOES have a nearby hotel booked for the night, as a special occasion and to let us stay out late and because little MM loves hotels. (Hopefully you can cut me some slack on that one – it’s the only hotel of the entire vacation, and we’ve managed to do the whole trip with a total of Zero restaurant meals and one bar drink, which is not too bad).
I’m planning to actually attempt to cook up some dinner there -bringing a bit of charcoal for one of the grills. So if you happen to be on the Honolulu side of that island that night and would like to tip a glass or grill an item with your fellow Mustachians that night, stop by! I’d love to meet you (or see you again if you went to the first one in Kailua) in person.
*although these are family-friendly events, last time the party technically went all night as one person missed the last bus home and had to stay for breakfast, which was great fun :-)
