Wednesday: Poi-fect for a luau!Location: Germaine’s Luau
When you’re in Hawaii, you go to a luau. It’s the ultimate Hawaiian party, a unique expression of aloha. When it’s a celebration of ‘ohana (family), as well, it’s even better — and that’s what makes Germaine’s Luau so very special.
Germaine’s is all about family. Multiple generations of performers have thrilled guests for decades: today’s hula dancer’s mom, and even her tutu (grandmother), might very well have taken the stage before her. A tradition of sharing and caring is what the real Hawaii is all about, and you’ll find it here.
PS We admit that Germaine’s is just as much fun the other six days of the week. But Wednesday is Hump Day in Hawaii as much as it is elsewhere, and there’s no better way to buoy your spirits, even if you’re flying high already.
For reservations, just call 808.949.6626 or wend your way to germainesluau.com. Have fun!

Market on the PlazaLocation: Waikiki Beach Walk
A splendid farmers market appears magically in the heart of Waikiki every Thursday from 4 to 8 pm. You’ll find terrific local products to sample, savor and stash in your recyclable bag to take home: jams, jellies, honey, mochi and chocolates for that sweet tooth; seasonal veggies and fruits to balance the menu; Big Island abalone, local beef jerky, coconut water and more! It all happens in convenient, refreshing, open-air Waikiki Beach Walk, which is a delightful place to dine and shop throughout the week. Have fun!

Friday Night FireworksLocation: Barefoot beach Cafe
We’re a bit spoiled where fireworks are concerned. Growing up, watching them was an annual event. Now it’s weekly, thanks to the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Every Friday night, the skies light up on the Ewa (away from Diamond Head) end of Waikiki. The show is brief but potent, and vivid colors spilling over the ocean make for a dazzling display.
You can see the fireworks from nearly anywhere on the beach, as long as your toes are in the sand. One inviting spot is the Barefoot Beach Cafe on the far Diamond Head side of Waikiki. Music, BBQ, families — maybe we’ll see you there!
