Eat The Street goes to Mililani.
WOW! Just WOW… What more need be said about our first Eat The Street away from our home in Kakaako.
The turnout for this Eat The Street was much bigger than any of us could have anticipated. I mean, we knew the taking it on the road was going to make the crowd happy, but there was no way to anticipate the response we got.
Just a endless sea of people from the moment you entered the gate. Here is a quick overhead clip from our flying cam, so you can see the madness from up above.
This installation of Eat The Street wend down a little earlier than our usual time. Scheduled from 2-7. However, by 2pm the parking lot was already full, and the streets were lined with parked cars. I remind people every time to come early, and this time around, a lot of people did just that.
So as a reminder, come down early. The lines will get longer as the time passes.
The theme of this event was “Ohana”, or Family. Each of the vendors was offering something for the Keiki (children). Whether it was a specialty item just for the kids, or a smaller portion of a classic menu item. The kids menu was just for children 10 and under, so unfortunately adults like myself weren’t able to partake, but people brought their Ohana in full force to this event.
Families, including children, and even pets, were all over the rec center. This one really was fun for the whole family.
We also welcomed a couple of new vendors to the ETS family. Ultimate Burgers was here fresh from the big island, serving up their “ultimate fries”, Pt. Suisse Crepes with their delicious French fare, and All Kine Ice Cream added to our great list of dessert vendors with their unique ice cream creations.
Of course, Lightsleepers were on hand keeping the audio as delicious as the food
Halfway through the event, there was a thriller flash mob who did an impromptu performance for everyone in attendance. Hopefully we will have a video up soon.
It was a crazy night of fun for the whole family, and ended with full stomachs under a gorgeous sky.
Make sure you come visit us at our regular Eat The Street spot at the end of the month.
