Oktoberfest Pa`ina HRA Mixer Recap

Oktoberfest Emcee Dan Pence, Hawaii Volcanic

On October 24, 2017 the Hawaii Restaurant Association held Oktoberfest Pa`ina, a membership mixer, at Honolulu Beerworks in Kaakako.

Over 150 members and guests attended and were treated to special brews by our host restaurant, Honolulu Beerworks, fantastic live music by EMKE Hawaii, and a special presentation by Food Gurus Hawaii communications director Erika Engle on “Food Media Placement Tips.”  In addition, our sponsor Richard’s Meat Market raffled off three prize packs of Steaks and Seafood valued at $150 each.

The HRA membership mixers are a great way to network with colleagues and meet new industry professionals all in a lively HRA atmosphere with fellow restaurateurs and guests.  Our next event is the annual Christmas party on December 4th at WISP Restaurant and Lounge in Waikiki.  Details coming soon…

 

Thank you to Oktoberfest sponsors:
