This past weekend a few friends of mine invited me to stay over at the Hilton Hawaiian Village with them in Waikiki. Guess what I said? Yes of course!! Who could say no to an awesome offer like that?!
Our floor was on the 33rd floor, so we had the perfect view over the beach and town areas. We were able to have dinner at my favorite Japanese BBQ restaurant, Gyukaku, in Waikiki. If you haven’t tried it, you should. It’s a yakiniku restaurant, so be prepared to cook the food yourself.
Unfortunately our stay was short-lived, because we only stayed for one night. But what a relaxing night it was.
After we checked out, I drove us to Cheeseburger Waikiki and we met up with another one of our good friends. None of us had ever been there, all we knew was that we were in the mood for burgers and it was close! Haha, college kids have little patience when hungry.
Well let me tell you, those burgers were awesome. I ordered the Black-N-Blue Burger, a burger topped with blue cheese and bacon. If you love blue cheese (and I LOVE blue cheese) then you’ll definitely be satisfied with this one. We also shared onion rings and seasoned fries; when they saw it feeds the whole table, they mean it! We had plenty leftover and we were stuffed!
Saturday was a busy day for me because after we finished eating, I had to go to Relay for Life at the University of Hawaii at Manoa! Relay for Life is an all night (7pm-7am) event put on by the American Cancer Society. This event promotes cancer awareness and helps fundraise for the American Cancer Society. I went with my business club, SIFE, and we were able to fundraise $833! We had tons of fun and I got to hang out with some of my Manoa friends that I haven’t seen in a long time :)
I realize this is a long one and if you read the whole post, thanks! I know it’s hard to keep up with me sometimes, but I’m doing my best to keep you all updated! I’ll have more photos posted of the wedding I did in March soon. Promise :)
