Being the procrastinator I am, I completely avoided getting gifts to bring back to my family as souvenirs until the last minute. I ran into Don Quijote really last minute expecting to find some cheesy stuff but they had some REALLY nice authentic Hawaiian gifts to give. I was shocked. The store is also really organized. I ended up going down the liquor aisle to find these cool sake kits made by Ty-ku that i had never seen before. Come to find out, its not Hawaiian so I kept it for myself but hey! great deals all around.

I've been to 33 quite a bit living in the area, but this last time I was served this delicious shot from the always more then helpful bar staff. The shot was smoking and was made with some citrus liquor called Ty Ku. I'm pretty sure it was called a Smoking Ty Ku Bamboo shot, one of the newer signature drinks I guess. Needless to say it was an experience. The theatrics matched the shot perfect, looked great and tasted better. I need to find some of that Ty Ku stuff. Oh yeah, and the bottle lights up when the bartender is holding it. Pretty cool.
