Love of Libations: 115th Birthday Bash

On Friday, Nadia and I attended the second installment of  “LOL: Love Of Libations” at the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa.  This new monthly event features food and beverage stations based upon a particular theme, and this past Friday's event was a particularly special one - to celebrate the Moana's 115th birthday (part of the proceeds of this event went towards the Life Foundation – Hawaii Chapter).

Hundreds gathered to indulge in bites by some of Hawaii's most acclaimed chefs, as well as in cocktails featuring Ocean Vodka.

Each restaurant offered a drink and a dish, and guests were given two coins to vote for their favorites.

Here were the offerings for the night:

Square Barrels
Bishop Sunset
Peach Pork Slider
Scratch Kitchen & Bake Shop
Kim Chee Bloody Mary
40-Hour Sous Vide Short Rib
Love Ocean
Elements of Pho
Koko Head Cafe
Mauka 2.0

Lemongrass Pork Belly Salad

The Pig & the Lady
Red Ocean
Food-Pho Bac
MW Restaurant
Wade's Pickled Tomato Bloody Mary
Coconut Ceviche
MAC 24/7 Bar + Restaurant
Bungalow Breeze
Ocean Vodka Hamachi
The Beach Bar
Ode to 1989
Beach Bar Poke
At the end of the evening, the coins were tallied, and the winners announced - Koko Head Cafe's Lemongrass Pork Belly Salad, and the Beach Bar's Ode to 1989!

It was a super fun night of mingling, eating, and sipping - all to celebrate the beautiful Moana Surfrider!

April's LOL event is themed "Bourbon and Bacon."  Tickets are $25 (21 years and over) and can be purchased at HonoluluBoxOffice.com.

Mahalo to the sponsor for complimentary tickets.
