at least in Hawaii…if you have a job and are looking for a vacation, it’s actually pretty cheap to go to Hawaii…at least as far as vacations to Hawaii go. I was lucky enough to visit Oahu and Maui in the fall…when I was living high off the hog with champagne wishes and caviar dreams…aka when I had a job and wasn’t on the dole. It just so happens that I’ve eaten at three of these places! Barack and I just have SO much in COMMON! We ate at Indigo our first night in Oahu and it was fabulous. I highly recommend it…and the rest of the list ain’t so bad neither.
I can’t wait to see what DC spots he takes to. I know he’s a fan of Mexican so my Washingtonian friends and I are taking bets as to which restaurante mexicana he takes a shine to. Guapos is a personal favorite of mine but other bets are on Cactus Cantina (which is located a few blocks from Sidwell where the girls go to school) and Rosa Mexicana. Any tipsters out there want to weigh in? Shed a little light?
Loco Moco from Aloha Plate in Lahaina in Maui. Rice, egg, hamburger patty, and loads of gravy. Perhaps this is the Hawaiian great-grandfather of the McGangBang.
