NFL Player Davone Bess "ROUTE" Fundraiser Pro-Bowl Party Kick off at Tiki's Bar & Grill

Tiki’s Grill & Bar in Waikiki joined wide receiver Davone Bess of the Miami Dolphins  in hosting a Pro-Bowl Kick off party. Live music by "Canoes for Rent", a heavy pupu buffet, silent and live auction items, all to benefit The Bess Route Foundation. Past University of Hawaii Warrior Football teammates Ryan Grice-Mullen, Chad Owens, Colt Brennan and other NFL players were on hand to help host the party and sign autographs.

The Bess Route Foundation has come to fruition through a simple belief that hard work breeds success in many aspects of life. Through Davone's devotion to seeing the good in every human being we are committed to bringing quality events, information and training to people in the community who lack the sufficient resources to do so. By the people and for the people our number one goal is to always create a positive atmosphere for our young to learn because with every worthless word, we, as a nation get further away from our goal to evolve as better human beings.

Honolulu PULSE PICS: ‘Five-0 Tweetup’ at Tiki’s

Blog Post from our friends at Hawaii Aloha Travel : Posted by Katherine Finch.  Follow me on Twitter @kfinches

The H50 fan club is IN the house … Tweeting, talking, & sharing their love of Hawaii’s best show on TV.

Hawaii Five-0 fans photograph Oahu sunset

I met them at the Hawaii Five-0 Sunset on the Beach 2011 Tweet Up/ reception hosted by Hawaii Aloha Travel’s own Bruce and Yaling Fisher.  A proper headcount was a little hard to do, as no one sat still long enough to be counted… but at least 40 visitors, from far and near, showed up at Tiki's Grill &  Bar in Waikiki  to start out a big weekend of H50 activities.  And even though the star of the weekend is the show’s season premier Saturday night, last night seemed more about meeting other fans from all over and putting faces with names that have been on Twitter, Facebook and other internet sites, keeping up with the show’s news and each other.

Hawaii Five-0 fans and Alex magazine covers

And while it’s pretty obvious the ladies of the group think that Alex Mc is pretty “hot”, it’s also obvious that Hawaii is the biggest draw of all.  And the group is ready to see and do it all while they can.  It was amazing to see where everyone came from – Austin, Chicago, Canada, LA, Charlotte, Australia, and even local Pearl City, here on Oahu.  One visitor told me she came here to Oahu last year after season one just to try to track down locations she had seen from the show.  And while she did a good job considering she was one her own, Bruce’s location tour on Sunday is a must-do for her.  Some visitors are experienced Hawaii travelers who make frequent trips and are happy to have another fun reason to come again and share in the fun of the premier. One local person told me about her experience as being an extra on the show.   Another woman told me she had never been here before but came a few days before her husband did, so that she could enjoy the FiveO experience.   While another traveler already had her trip booked and was on island when she found out about the weekend and decided it was a great way to enjoy a few days with others who love the show.  There were reunions with old friends who traveled here separately, and new connections with virtual friends.

This is a really dynamic group and there is no doubt they are going to have some big time fun!   Many started off with some lively but friendly showing off of home made t-shirts and buttons.   Several magazines with some pictures of the show’s males stars was circulated around, again, and then again.  And the sunset was gorgeous over Waikiki beach, which prompted fun group shots, and quick postings to Twitter and Facebook to show the world how lucky they felt to be here in Hawaii.     

All those involved are serious show fans and I hope to get to know them better as the weekend progresses and find out more of their stories.  That is if I can get them apart for a second.  This group has pretty much bonded and it should be great fun for the luau today.  We’ll keep you posted, so till then I’ll sign off using the words of another  visitor who  says she signs off the internet every night with  “ Cuff me, Steve”.   LOL.


Honolulu Pulse was also on on location to cover the party:

Guest Recommendation for Wedding Party Venue. Do you use linkedin.com?

Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert

“Having traveled to Hawaii only once, I was nevertheless able to sample a number of restaurant/bar venues throughout Honolulu. That said, one of my very favorites was the Tiki Bar and Grill. Located on the upper level, the views were fantastic! The food (especially the Macadamia Nut Encrusted Mahi Mahi makes my mouth water even today) was elegantly and expertly prepared.

The lounge area was comfortable and fun. This was my daughter's wedding dinner which was planned from 4000 miles away and I wasn't sure what to expect. Why did I even worry! Mike and his staff were amazing which resulted in a perfect evening of celebration. All details were covered. Well organized, the entire event was flawless due to the expertise and professionalism of Mike and his team. Even today, I remain on the mailing list because someday I'll go back to Hawaii and my first stop will be to say hello to Mike and the Tiki Bar and Grill. You should too - especially if you're planning a night to remember.”

Big Mahalo to Mike Talor and his family for the very nice comments and hosting their party at Tiki's Grill & Bar.

This was a great party, we helped co-host back in 2006. This was when smoking was still legal in restaurants. The band hut is also not built yet.
