Bruce and Yaling started their weekend off at the Spam Jam in Honolulu, which is the world’s largest spam festival, honoring the local, loved flavor of canned spam. It was a great experience with flavorful renditions of spam  dishes such as fajitas, chili and spam flavored macadamia nuts, yummm.
There’s some great news on this podcast, including visitor spending being up 12.7% this year over last year. According to the HTA this is very good news because we’re seeing an increase in spending which is always great for Hawaii’s economy. Bruce will also illustrate several beaches that are off the beaten path for those looking to explore a more secluded day on the sand.
This past weekend Bruce and Yaling got to stay at the Halekulani, located on the beach in Waikiki. They really enjoyed House Without a Key, the lounge located right on the property and the live entertainment at this bar. With 453 rooms at the Halekulani, this hotel ranges in height from 2 stories to 17 stories. One of the first 3 hotels first built in Hawaii, this historical property has lush gardens, a pool, 3 cocktail lounges, a fitness center, hospitality suite and so much more.
