Ready for some poke, Honolulu? Fifteen top poke shops across the island are coming together at Ala Moana Center on Sept. 29, 2018 for Frolic's 2nd annual Honolulu PokeFest. From 4 to 8 p.m., all the shops are selling multiple poke dishes including all-new PokeFest creations, plus we'll have a Kona Brewing Co. craft beer bar and a Poke Pound eating contest with a grand prize trip for two to Las Vegas!
The best way to eat your way through this smorgasbord is with a PokePass, which lets you skip long lines and get up to 10 appetizer portions from the poke shops of your choice. A $50 PokePass gets you 10 selections; a $35 PokePass gets you 6. And we're giving one pair of $50 PokePasses to a lucky reader! Scroll to the bottom of this post to enter.
