Yay I posted here, I'm sMrt. Now answer the question!
So I've booked my airplane ticket and did that con reg for Kawaii con. I'm at the point of no return and I have all the necessary days off from work. Now after browsing a map of the island (and still trying to compile a list of places I want to go) and checking the calender dates we have. I want to throw out a couple things here.
First off, while Honolulu offers a lot to do, there is a lot of neat stuff all over Oahu, and that requires a car. I've cross checked a few sites including Priceline and so far Alamo
rentals gives the best rates without discounts. So, I guess the question is:
A.) Do we all agree that we should rent a car for part of our trip?
B.) If yes, do any of you have any discounts/upgrade coupons lying around or no someone who has such things?
C.) Also if yes, what days would we rent the car for.
As for me, I think at least 1 or 2 days would be fun for renting a car. So far I see Alamo has Full size cars (meaning it has enough to hold all 5 of us + trunk space, we all couldn't fit in economy, and it'd be cramped for Standard) for about $30 a day. So since the con itself starts Friday the 27th, maybe we could rent Tuesday-Thursday. All fees and everything combined I be we'll pay about $100 to $120 for all 3 days if we reserve in advance. and if we split up the cost, it isn't too much extra.
This is just my take on it though. Let me know what you guys think about this idea and everything, and post any better rates that you might know of.
Also, a friend recommended I try this restaurant out for lunch or dinner. Its fusion and classic Italian food, and the whole place is done up like the Sistine Chapel, its supposed to be a fun place to eat at. It might be pricier than you guys want to pay and I know we all didn't travel to Hawaii to eat Italian ^^; but I was told the food is really good. So I'm gonna give it a go at some point, and I'd love to have some company if any of you are down for it. http://www.cafesistina.com/
So um, thats all I can think of for now.(Edit):
Um... ^^; I just saw this too. http://www.samchoy.com/restaurants_dh_menu_brunchs.html
Sam Choy's! This one is the fancy white table cloth restaurant he has, but it seems they do an awesome brunch buffet. $27 a person but ... just look at its set up. btw the poke (poh-keh) bar is sashimi Hawaiian style.
but if I dont get to do that I want to at least try his family restaurant http://www.samchoy.com/restaurants_bigaloha.html
This is the place with all the Spam on the menu XD
I keep posting restaurants ^^;; ah well. I'm sure I'll find a few activities besides eating, if I try harder Current Mood: contemplative
