Hello Oahu, now that we can get together in our homes in (socially distanced) groups of up to five, can we hear a chee-hoo? Which brings us to the third installment of Frolic's Night In, a new takeout-and-chill series where you pick up a special multi-course dinner and drink pairings to enjoy at home as Frolic hosts an interactive virtual dinner.
Coming up Saturday, Oct. 24: A four-restaurant dine-around of Royal Hawaiian Center's all-stars, packaged to go with drink pairings. Experts from Island Vintage Wine Bar, TsuruTonTan Udon Noodle Brasserie and Wolfgang's Steakhouse will delve into the inspirations and stories of their dishes as you drool and eat. Two drink pairings by Noi Thai Cuisine complete an evening hosted by Frolic's Kelli Shiroma Braiotta.
Ready to feast? The $55 dinner event includes three courses, drink pairings and a unique access code to our live Zoom hangout:
- Cocktail: Mango Mojito from Noi Thai Cuisine
- Appetizer: Spicy Ahi Poke Dip with fresh black sesame chips from Island Vintage Wine Bar (pictured above)
- Entree: Tonkatsu Bento Set with full-size Hot Kake Udon from TsuruTonTan Udon Noodle Brasserie
- Dessert: Junior's Cheesecake from New York, aka The World's Most Fabulous Cheesecake, courtesy of Wolfgang Steakhouse
- Digestif: Penfold's Club Tawny Port from Noi Thai Cuisine
Here's how it works: You'll order and pay for your dinner and drink pairings online. We'll email you a confirmation with a link to the live Zoom virtual dinner on event day. On Saturday, Oct. 24 you'll pick up your dinner and drinks at Royal Hawaiian Center's curbside pickup between 4 and 5 p.m.
Follow the instructions below:
- Drive down Kalakaua Avenue and turn right onto Royal Hawaiian Avenue (Hermes is on the corner)
- Drive past the pedestrian speedbump and the parking entrance ramp will be on the right side
- Proceed up the ramp, pull a parking ticket and proceed to the Park & Go parking stalls that will be on the right side near the level 3 elevators
- Staffers will be waiting with your dinner-and-drink pairings
At 5:30 p.m. you'll log into Zoom from your home, pick up your glass and settle in as we start the live hosted dinner where you can chime in with questions and comments as we all chat and eat!
