MDA's Spring Soirée at the Royal Hawaiian
Sponsored Edition: Royal Affair
All in all, this month is off to a pretty fantastic start.
You've got not one, but two warehouse sales to hit. You (finally!) get to watch a brand-new episode of Mad Men. Then next week, you'll spend an evening savoring mouthwatering bites and luscious libations at an iconic Waikiki hotel.
Oh, that last one's not on your schedule? Allow us to fix that by marking your calendar for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's annual Spring Soirée.
Talk about a luxe affair. Mingling with beautifully dressed guests on the Ocean Lawn of The Royal Hawaiian. Watching the sun set with ice-cold martini in hand. Enjoying live music from a top-notch band. It's almost like being in a James Bond movie - you know, without all that pesky spy mission stuff.
Don't forget the oh-my-gosh-this-is-absolute-heaven food: chirashi sushi cups with salmon, ahi, ikura, and shiso wasabi from Azure; Spanish kiawe-smoked pork with braised island greens and cilantro coconut fried rice from MAC 24-7; Kulana Beef loco moco with foie gras fried rice and a sunny side up quail egg from Tiki's Grill & Bar; mini Let Them Eat Cupcakes creations; and more (oh yeah, James Bond wishes he were here).
All you have to do is fill out a simple online registration, pick out a stunning semi-formal outfit - think elegant maxi and wedges with plenty of statement jewelry - and get ready for a magical night that also benefits a great cause.
Now if only it could do your taxes...
