Aloha Beer Company

The day we arrived in Oahu we got our rental car, checked into our hotel room, changed and then met up with Dallas’s friends from Kamehameha Schools at Aloha Beer Company. This new brew pub just opened a few months ago, so it was fun to check it out. And fun to see old friends, of course!!!! So much to catch up on! A new baby for Alika, Donovan and Healoha are now engaged! After trying out all of the beer (literally, I had the sampler) and grinding on some Hawiian pupus, we decided to head to Imua Lounge.

Hawaiian Language Karaoke.
Going to Imua Lounge was either the best idea in the world or the worst. Actually, Healoha ordered a vodka drink and then we all did.. and that was probably the worst idea in the world. This night was definitely the most I drank all vacation and I totally felt it the next day! Imua Lounge is completely decked out in Kamehameha Schools pennants and memorabilia, including a huge sign with the entire fight song spelled out on it. And everyone there was a Kamehameha Schools alum. I was talking to some guys that weren’t even with us and they each told me the year they graduated. New grads, old grads, but all grads.
Imua Lounge had some crazy karaoke action, which would explain even more why Monte wanted to go there :). This was not your ordinary karaoke. Everyone in there was SOOO good. Really good. But Monte still made Dallas sing Young MC’s Bust a Move. The karaoke was available both in English and in Hawaiian, and not only that, but one guy sang in Samoan! Fun fun night. We definitely do not get to see these guys enough!
