Poke Poke, Kaua'i Style

Last week, we were on the gorgeous Garden Isle of Kaua'i, at the famous Sheraton Kaua'i -- the only hotel nestled into the fertile crescent of Poipu Beach and its fantastic snorkeling and sunning.

Though Kaua'i is far from the humming hustle of Waikiki, there is plenty to do -- it's just so relaxing, you don't want to. Regardless, we snorkeled, tubed, zipped, rode in an open cockpit Bi-Plane... and were welcomed as dignitaries by local folklorist and Hula Empressario Lopaka.

Somehow, between the Mai Tais, Mahi Mahi and poke poke, we found the gumption to stage a LIVE version of our popular iTunes podcast, A FORK ON THE ROAD, poolside in front of an enthusiastic live audience. Since the scenery is so spectacular, rather than our regular audio-only broadcast, we captured it all on video as well... until a torrential -- but brief -- rain shut us down.

Before the clouds opened, we had time to hear a traditional Hawaiian welcome song, learn the Sheraton RumFire's Tuna Poke recipe from Chef Mark... and get lei'd.

Not a bad Thursday... see for yourself.
