Megan Kono thought her friends were asking for the opihi on the rocks when they asked her to bring some back. Megan, from the Honolulu offices of the Hawaii Farm Bureau, joined Kasey Robello and Brian Miyamoto in helping (they’re collecting tickets) at the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair.
Just before the gates opened Thursday, Megan (Brian Miyamoto said she’s Roy Oyama’s granddaughter) and Kasey learned about the Kauai Chocolate opihi (and they’re not even at the farm fair), the hemajangs and kamaaina discounts to get a bunch for their Honolulu friends. Now, the next task is to find out where the ulua are biting for Megan’s boyfriend.
Kudos to Mary Lardizabal who got a whole mess of her ukulele band and choir to turn out for the opening of the fair … Josie Pablo already has her eye on having the band perform during the Christmas lighting of the Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital courtyard.
Bill Spitz liked the shirt Shaiann Montgomery, a student at Kauai Community College, was wearing during the produce check-ins. Melissa McFerrin-Warrack was having a blast on the steak-serving line at the Island School food booth, and kudos to Tricia Yamashita who got the fair to light up for the weekend.
