Coconut Club Photos of Rachael and Reginald by Wendy & Eric of L'Amour Photography.

Here are some great photos from our friends Wendy & Eric.   Capturing the priceless moments, subtle details and grand emotions of life's most romantic events, L'Amour Photography is a Hawaii-based journalistic wedding photography company dedicated to the highest artistic and professional standards. 

What began as a labor of love by husband and wife team Wendy and Eric Leslie-Mansperger has blossomed into a team of industry leading photographers with a world-wide demand.

The wedding reception was held at Coconut Club at Tiki’s Grill & Bar directly on the Waikiki strip.

Tiki’s Grill and Bar is centrally located in Waikiki Beach, which is convenient for guests especially for Hawaii destination weddings. The Coconut Club is located on the 21st floor and has amazing views of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach.

 This Waikiki wedding reception had a Moroccan theme with beautiful flowers, linens, and decor by the ever so talented Designs By Hemingway.  The centerpieces were colorful Moroccan lanterns surrounded by bright roses and orchids.

 The linens were exotically patterned with magentas, oranges and purples.  As the grand centerpiece to this Moroccan themed wedding reception Designs By Hemingway constructed an impressive a towering arrangement of roses, drift wood, and feathers that was a beautiful focal point in the reception.
 This cute couple finished up their Waikiki wedding reception at the Coconut Club watching the weekly fireworks display that Hilton Hawaiian Village puts on every Friday night.  This was a wonderful wedding coordinated by Katy Castillo Weddings.  Congrats to Rachael and Reginald!

Honolulu’s Greatest Burgers Article includes our Grand Tiki Burger - Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Not that you really need an excuse…but these last few days of May provide a perfect opportunity to eat a burger or two more than usual.
As National Burger Month concludes, we’ve been on the lookout for some special burgers at city restaurants. Yes, they’re a little pricier than your average fast food patty , but what do you get for the extra dollars? Grass fed beef, locally sourced greens and tomatoes, imported Irish cheese, and even a choice of bison, buffalo or ostrich. With space limitations it’s impossible to print a complete list of Honolulu’s greatest burgers – but here are a few firm favorites to get you started.
More at

Here is the section about our burger:

Grand Tiki Burger
You might not expect to find a great burger on the roof top of a hotel in Waikiki, but the Tiki Burger has been a hit with locals and tourists alike, since the restaurant opened. Tiki’s uses Maui Cattle Company ground beef in their 1/2lb patty, served on a toasted sesame seed bun stacked with sweet onions, sliced pickles, iceberg lettuce and sliced roma tomatoes.

The Grand Tiki is $12, and for an extra $4, you can double up and get yourself a full one-pound of ground beef on a bun. While you’re there, you might want to try the locally inspired Fried Green Tomato Sandwich; thick slices of Waialua-grown tomatoes fried in cornmeal and topped with goat cheese and island papaya salad.

Launch Party - Video of "SEVEN TIKI Spiced Rum" premium Fijian rum brand.

From the South Pacific comes SEVEN TIKI Spiced Rum, a Fijian rum with
outstanding flavor and smoothness derived from superior ingredients:
molasses from fine Polynesian sugar cane, sun baked Indonesian nutmeg,
Madagascar vanilla beans and virgin water drawn from deep beneath the
Fiji’s volcanic highlands.

It is now available at Tiki's Grill & Bar and a few other cool places.

The result is a 35 percent alcohol by volume (70 proof) rum that is
remarkably smooth with the robust flavor of fresh sugar cane,
Polynesian fruit, coffee and hints of cherry and chocolate accompanied
by an aroma of vanilla and light creme caramel with a medium-bodied,
well-rounded mouth feel.

Photos from the event

The craft and spirit behind SEVEN TIKI is rooted in the tradition and
adventure of South Pacific legend, which tells of Polynesian
navigators, known as The Great Fleet, who set out from their homeland
of Hawaiki in search of the land of the long white cloud, Aotearoa.
These brave navigators carved a ‘Tiki’ into the helm of each of seven
outrigger canoes (or wakas) so “it should always cast a shadow to the
East or West and keep the voyage true.” These Tikis represented seven
skills and qualities they would need to complete their journey across
the open sea. SEVEN TIKI is crafted in honor of these legendary gods
and intrepid navigators.

    Our Menu @tikisgrill for #thegoodtable to Benefit @LanakilaPacific


    Here's How it Works

    At exactly 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 22, over 50 restaurants across Oahu will serve special feasts for an exclusive table in their establishments. Wait till you see the menus they have come up with!

    This is Oahu's first synchronized dining event.  We will all sit down for to dinner, at the same time, for Lanakila Meals on Wheels.  Proceeds will provide much needed funding to deliver more meals to kupuna who need our help.

    Please join us if you can.  And help us turn one great meal into many.

    How it works:   

    • Select a Restaurant Category:   There are six categories of tables to choose from (Please have a look at the table to the left, and click on them for overviews of each category).  Each category offers a different dining atmosphere for you to choose, from very fine dining to family style.  
    • Why Category and Not Restaurant?  The fun of this event is that every table purchased for a category will be added to a pool of other entries for that same category.  A random drawing will be held on October 9th, and you will be notified by October 12 of your restaurant pairing!
    • Prices are Per Table.  Of six or four, depending on your category.
    • To Choose A Restaurant - for a limited time, you may also sponsor a table outright at a higher donation. Simply click on your desired Category and choose the Buy Now feature. 
    • Purchase table ticketson this website or use the downloadable form and fax or mail it in to our office.
    • Please book early to reserve your spot, as tables are limited in number.  Sales close when sold out or on October 8.
    • Welcome Packet will be sent out to you the week of October 12.  This packet will include: notification of your restaurant pairing, your table tickets, instructions, information on your restaurant, as well as detailed information on how you may also participate in the event's website sharing feature.
    • Details:  Table purchases are for chef designed meals described on this website and on the tickets you will be receiving.  Purchase does not cover any other items, including beverages, parking, valet, or gratuity.
    • Note on Gratuity: The fabric of this event is held together by the spirit of generosity. Please be aware of this and make it a point to tip accordingly.  
    • For updates and news:  Please follow, subscribe, or bookmark our newsfeed Inside The Good Table.

    The Good Table: The Web as a Dimension of Sharing

         And because we live in Hawaii, where everything ono invites in the elements of sharing and fun, we've come up with a plan:

         We will be providing a space here on the website for all of us to connect as we all sit down at 6:00 p.m. at tables across Oahu.   Connect?  Yes, we will be asking everyone to email, tweet, or text us images of your special feast so we can share it all via the wonderful web. 

         So, instead of hundreds of rubber slippers outside the door, we will have hundreds of tweets, pics, and texts from all of us to enjoy.

         This has never been done before.  All of us together will be creating an unprecedented, simultaneous, dining event.  This is about finding new ways to come together.

    Why The Good Table?

         Proceeds will help Lanakila Meals on Wheels provide more meals for more seniors – so everyone who is participating, from restaurants to corporate supporters to diners, will be literally turning every meal prepared and enjoyed, into many. 

         Our goal is to raise awareness and $250,000 through this event and Lanakila Social Enterprisesto ensure that we can continue meal service for every senior currently in the program and to bring more than 100 seniors off the waiting list this year.

    Because food is life.

          We live in the world's wealthiest nation, yet, so many of our kupuna are going to sleep hungry.  They are a strong, proud generation.  Often this means that many are suffering in silence. 

         There are hundreds of kupuna on our waiting list to receive meals.  They are waiting because of funding shortfalls, a weakened economy, and because we live in one of the fastest growing senior populations in the nation. 

         It is a heart breaking problem.  But one that we can solve with your support.  We hope that The Good Table becomes more than just an event.  We hope that it becomes a movement that brings us all together, as a community.  A community that takes care of each other, especially our kupuna. 

         You are invited to join us to not only raise funds, but to build a movement to ensure that no kupuna goes hungry in Hawaii. Learn more about the senior hunger crisis.
