According to my friend Michael, business is conducted during play time quite often. This held true during my recent trip to Hawaii, while we were having lunch at Tiki’s Grill.
Tiki’s has an awesome menu, and you have to try the Poke Bowl if you ever have the chance! Hawaiian ahi poke is chunks of fresh yellow fin tuna, seasoned with Hawaiian ogo seaweed, soy sauce and sesame oil. The Poke Bowl consists of this served over white rice, and topped with avocado and pipikaula aioli.
Tiki’s was the sponsor for my Gnomedex Hawaii Tweetup a few months ago, during my last visit to the Islands. They were fantastic, and even came up with some specialty drinks for us that night!
I’ve taken to holding a few of my own tweetups at the Pyramid Brewhouse in Seattle – they have the space for small groups, they have good beer, free parking for customers, and a killer reuben. Staff is always friendly, and it’s easily accessible (no matter how you’re coming into downtown Seattle). I’m very glad that Travis recommended them to me a few months ago. After I started tweetups there, seems that every other local outfit followed suit. Hey, for all that free publicity – why aren’t they letting me drink for free!?
