Pro Bowl Block Party Kicks Off in Waikiki

Pro Bowl Block Party Kicks Off in Waikiki

We are thrilled to promote the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl—which has made its just return to Hawaii (after a horrendous decision by both the NFL and the former authorities-of-note here in Honolulu). And while there are still inconceivable discrepancies (um, holding the bout the week BEFORE the Super Bowl is not only ludicrous, but so blatantly due to corporate network sponsorship driven by soulless lackeys intent on putting a few extra shillings in their pocket), the festivities commence, nonetheless.

Starting with the official Pro Bowl Block Party at the Royal Hawaiian Center on Saturday evening, January 28, 2011.

First, pay your respects to the trophy awarded to the winning team, which will be on display at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse at Wolfgang Zwiener for the duration of the evening (Level 3, above the Cheesecake Factory). While you’re there, saddle up to the bar and order a slice of the best damn cheesecake in the nation (sorry “Factory”, there’s no comparison) replete with a heaping scoop of schlag (if you don’t know what it is, get some; you can thank us on our Facebook page later). We digress…

This Hawaiian affair begins at 6:00 p.m. sharp, with the graceful sounds of Pilikia filling the air as the shopping center’s Beer Garden begins pouring the official Pro Bowl brew (that ole’ Hawaiian beach favorite, Coors Light), as well as Blue Moon and a variety of wines.

At 6:30 p.m., kumu hula Manu Boyd and his Halau o ke Aalii Ku Makani will demonstrate the dances that have consistently placed them in good standings at Merrie Monarch Festival.

When the clock hits 7:10 p.m., look for Kuuipo Kumukahi and the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame Serenaders to perform in The Royal Grove at the Center. Kumukahi presides over the Hawaii Academy of Recording arts.

Performances last through 10:00 p.m., and include Kaiholu, Kainani Kahaunaele and more.

Parking is $5 will validation for the evening.
