Things in Honolulu

Going again to HHV this February and am looking for suggestions for new things that are interesting for a family to do; new restaurants or old things all of you would want to go to and visit one more time. We can't spend the whole time trying to surf cheer: We should have a sticky thread about each Hawaiian Island recommended restaurants, activities etc. Any takers and thanks for your recommendations! :hi:

Hawaiian Symphony on Ward, Royal Hawaiian Band free concerts, art festivals in Kapiolani park on weekends, Hula's on Kapahula for Sunday Tea Dance Party,
Ocean House Restaurant in the Outrigger Reef, Sunset Cocktails at the Hulakulani with Hawaiian Band, Jerry Santos right after fireworks at the Tapa Bar and the HHV.

Ailana Shave Ice - they have ***homemade*** syrups that are to DIE for. Last time we were there, we made it a quest to find the best shave ice. Waiola (as already recommended), is very good, too.

I also 3rd Puka dog - great for families & the owner is very nice.

If your family will eat it, get some poke!
