      You were the best bloody Mary in the MCT Production of South Pacific a few

      Aloha, all ...

      As many of you know via Facebook and Twitter, I am making my first trip to
      Hawaii, leaving on Tuesday afternoon 8/3 and returning on 8/19.

      My HQ will be the Hokele Suites in Waikiki, within a stone's throw of the
      Ala Wai canal and quite near where DB lived in the early 1950s. The hotel
      is about 7 blocks from the beach and from my "home away from home" most
      evenings, the Kanikapila Grille at the Outrigger Reef. Here, each night of
      the
      week features a different music group. I'm looking forward to hearing each
      one at least once, some twice and, of course, my favorite slack key
      guitarist, Cyril Pahinui, on 3 Wednesday evenings.

      On Saturday 8/7, I'll be at the Gabby Pahinui Waimanalo Kanikapila, where
      about 100 musicians will be performing -- probably one of the largest jam
      sessions in the world!

      On Sunday 8/8, I'll attend the Royal Hawaiian Band concert at Kapiolani
      Park, stop in at Duke's for more music and cap off the day with guitarist
      Jeff Peterson at the Grille.

      On Sunday 8/15, I'll be at the slack key festival in Kapiolani Park,
      thence ot hear Jeff again.

      In between, I plan to walk as much of Waikiki and downtown Honolulu as I
      can, seeking the spots where DB either worked or lived between 1916 and
      1955.

      I am also planning to visit the Bishop Museum to see the surfing exhibit,
      the Royal Hawaiian Hotel to see the Amelia Earhart photos and the Waikiki
      Aquarium to see the fishes. Of course, I will tour the USS Arizona
      memorial,
      Iolani Palace and the restored Hawaii Theatre and take in at least one bon
      odori festival. I'll spend at least one day riding the bus scross the
      mountains and up the Windward coast to Kahuku -- mostly just to enjoy the
      scenery and ocean air. And I'm hoping to take a sunset cruise off Waikiki.

      I do expect to spend some time reading microfilm at the Hawaii State
      Library and/or UH-Manoa and getting a better idea of what their
      collections
      might hold regarding DB. I may also stop in at the Star-Advertiser to find
      out
      what photo archives are accessible and perhaps to pitch a couple of
      article

      ideas.

      So, if you are on Oahu and would like to get together, please let me know
      via e-mail or leave a message at the hotel. Michael P. has already been in
      touch with me, but I know there are several others in or near Honolulu.
      Wouldn't it be great to get a bunch together for a DB gabfest? Of course,
      I'd
      also love to share the music events, too!
      I won't be carrying a laptop or cell phone, but there are 2 internet cafes
      within a few blocks of my hotel where I'll check e-mail at least every
      other day and my suite has voice mail.

      Looking forward to this trip and hope to see all of you who are on Oahu
      while I'm there.

      ~~Cadia
