KIA Fundriaser

A big MAHALO goes to KIA member REAL gastropub for providing a wonderful venue for the KIA Fundraiser held Tuesday, September 24th. Our “private party” was set up with a table of three wines with Joe Kuka, Certified Sommelier from Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits who explained the three types of wine being offered, as well as the beer expert who is the owner of REAL gastropub, Troy Terorotua, whose background of the three beers was very impressive.

A special menu of seven pupu items were prepared for all to enjoy. To name a few, there was Pub Salad (Waipoli greens, soft boiled egg, red onions, candied pecans with maple vinaigrette dressing and gorgonzola drizzle, YUMMY), tempura Shimeji mushrooms with garlic IPA Aioli (totally unique), Swedish pork and beef meatballs with savory gravy (to die for), and homemade pretzel bites with cheese sauce (original REAL gastropub favorite from 2012).

Door prizes were provided by REAL gastropub, Steve Sullivan, and Sherry Goya,  which added a nice touch to the event.
