Last night I was at the Yelp Helps Halloween Monster Bash which benefits the Aloha United Way. Its nice to be able to celebrate and help charity all at the same time. The people at Primo Popcorn made up some liquid nitrogen cooled blood orange ice cream as a treat. The ice cream was delicious but I really like the lighting and liquid nitrogen smoke in this photo. They also served samples of some of their popcorn flavors including Holy Ghost which was super hot.

Here is a look the brand new rainbow mural on Hilton Hawaiian Hotel Rainbow Tower. I had a prior photo of this but I really like this one because of the beautiful blue sky. The Rainbow Tower has become one of the Waikiki landmarks. The mural is made up by 31,000 tiles each 8 by 8 inches at a cost of $4.25 millions dollars.
