I'm very jealous! I'm going to Hawaii next year with my family and can't wait, I'm counting the days already.

Enjoy the trip.

Be sure to check out Ukulele store PuaPua! It's in the lobby of a hotel. I forget which. Nice selection of ukes to look and drool over!

OR go to the Koaloha Factory and maybe pick up an awesome factory second!

Cheers,

I second that! It was my favorite uke store when I went to Oahu...if you don't mind slightly high prices you can see some gorgeous ones at the uke store in the Hilton Hawaiian Village's Kalia tower. Tons of Kamakas, Kanile'as (including an AMAZING custom one for $3000 last time I was there) and KoAlohas...

Eh Seeso,

Don't be too envious (kalua pork), after all you have
Gino's Pizza in the Windy City.

I was in Chicago for 3 years in the late 60's, and Gino's
was a favorite (Old Town).

By the way, Howie, hope to meet up with you at the
BBQ. As noted previously, I'll be landing at HNL around
noon from Seattle. Hope I make it in time, before all
the kau kau is gone.

I'm still trying to decide about bringing my 5-string Mele
along with my Risa Soprano Solid. I like traveling with
the Risa because it's so portable and quiet on the plane.
It also slows people down as they pass by while I'm
busking in Waikiki. It doesn't cause them to reach for
their wallets, but it does get a fair share of "compliments".

Anyway, see you at the BBQ.

And Seeso, have a Gino's pizza, if you're into that kind of
thing.

If you want Pizza and your on Maui try BJ's on Front St. in Lahaina. The food is great and it over looks the harbor. Great for sunsets too.... Pizza, beer, sunset & music....
