Aloha, peeps!  It’s a quiet Wednesday morning here in Manoa except for the roosters crowing back in the valley.  If you’ve ever been up to Manoa Falls Park, you’ve probably seen tons of wild chickens running all over the place.  There’s a restaurant there called Treetops where I’ve seen staff feeding the chickens, so don’t be surprised if you find a lot of chicken items on the menu!

It was such a beautiful day yesterday that I went for a jog down at my favorite place, the Kakaako Waterfront Park.  However, there was so much dust & noise from all the construction going on in the area that I ended up cutting my run short.  There are also more and more homeless people in the area so it’s difficult to navigate some of the sidewalks.

Last night the boys & I got together with our friends, Gregg and Cal, at Tsukuneya near the U.H. campus.  It’s one of our favorite izakaya joints and their specialty is Nagoya-style tsukune, or meat-on-a-stick, as I like to call them.  We got to sample some their special seasonal sake, Kubota genshu, which we were told contained a little higher alcohol content.  Boy, they weren’t kidding … although it was very delicious, I was spinning after one small glass!

Aloha, “D”
