Hipahipa! Part II

Congrats and 100 points to Adam for submitting the correct answer to our June 11th word scramble. And another 100 points to Adam for being the only one to even make an effort. Yes, the answer was "King Kamehameha Day." Josh came up with the fun illustrations based on the items we ate drank, and watched in celebration of Hawaii's famous monarch. But what do these things have to do with Hawaii?
Hawaii consumes massive amounts of Spam- more than any other US state. Hawaiians prefer eating the canned meat in a dish called Spam Musubi- and so do we.Spam musubi has become a favorite "special occasion" food at our house. It's fun to make and to eat! Check it out at [wikipedia].
I honestly didn't know pineapple wine existed until I walked into BevMo and found a bottle of it in the dessert wine section. Produced and bottled by Tedeschi Vineyards, LTD. in Ulupalakua, Maui, Hawaii, the description on the back reads, "...a soft, dry fruity, wine with an unmistakable pineapple bouquet." Mmmmmm pineappley.
And last but not least, being the rabbid Mystery Science Theater 3000 fiends that we are, we managed to track down the one and only episode (that we know of) where the characters watch a movie that is set in Hawaii, "Code Name: Diamond Head." As usual, the movie is terrible and the jokes are funny- especially after a little of the Maui Blanc.
In the true spirit of Aloha, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Mahalo to King Kamehameha for giving us a great excuse to celebrate. Hipahipa!
Mark your calendars (June 11, 2008) and feel free to come share in the fun with us next year!
