Waikiki at night
As soon as I purchased my plane tickets to Hawaii for Jenny's wedding, I looked up local TravBuddies and asked a few of them if they would like to meetup.  I got a few responses back.  So where to go and what to do...hmmm? 

Since Jenny and Eric's wedding reception ended around 6:30pm and since most of the guests were out-of-towners, they had arranged a wedding afterparty at Skyline at the Sheraton Waikiki...a lounge that turns into an exclusive nightclub every first and third Saturday of the month.  Jenny and Eric compiled a guest list that week of their wedding and I was able to get my cousin Mar and two other TravBuddies (jamartin39 and radarasu +1) onto it. 

Trying to find the Sheraton Waikiki was an ordeal for Mar and I because construction and some sort of street event caused lane closures so we had to circle around for a bit to find the hotel entrance.

  Being on the guest list had its advantages...discounted cover charge (woo hoo only 5 bucks!...I think the norm is $20), an express line to the glass elevator that zips you up to the club, and free hor' dourves by the bar. 

When Mar and I walked into Skyline we immediately see Greg (radarasu), Greg's wife, and Jackie (jamartin39)...all transplants to Hawaii.  We chatted quite a bit and laughed even harder.  I hope I didn't scare them off with my camera antics. 

I did have to break away from my new TravBuddies and mingle with the wedding party who were already getting down on the dance floor. 

Funny how time flies when you are having fun!  I hope to see Greg and Jackie again in October...no definite plans for a meetup yet as I still have to secure my flight plans. 

What a wonderful way to end a great day...hahahaha...I can't believe I got TravBuddies to crash my friend's afterparty!
