Good morning, peeps!  I’m off to an early start this morning since we have to go out to Waipahu to check out some cool accessories for our new IOLANI store which will be opening this June.  It all seems to be coming together, but I can see that the last month or so is going to be absolutely nuts!  And it doesn’t help that we’ll be on tour in Japan until a couple of weeks before the opening too!

I went to Tsukuneya, a Japanese restaurant right next to the U.H. campus last night to have drinks and pupus with my friend, Gregg.  I always order the sake sampler which consists of 3 different types of sake and it’s quite good!  For pupus, we ordered the grilled chicken along with the shrimp & onion kakiage – we didn’t order any of their special tsukuneya (dumplings on skewers) though …

We’re starting to prepare for our upcoming Japan tour and I can already feel the energy starting to build!

Aloha, “D”
