The Outlets of Maui Tweet-Up

The Outlets of Maui in Lahaina Maui

We had a fun tweet-up at The Outlets of Maui in Lahaina yesterday.  I have to be honest, I am a “South Maui” girl and so I don’t often make it to the West side of Maui.  As many locals would say “it’s such a long drive”.  Yep, we locals on the South Side  think Westside is so far away when it is actually not that far.  We’re just spoiled here on Maui :) Anyway, far or not, when I got a message from @Melissa808 saying that she and @Parkrat are coming to Maui and are hosting a tweet-up, I told them I would be going.  Both @Melissa808 and @Parkrat are longtime friends in social media (way back when Twitter was just starting in Hawaii).  Funny thing is that in all these years that we’ve been “friends” online, I still haven’t met @Parkrat live IRL (until yesterday).  Here’s what Melissa posted on her FB Page about us:

The Outlet of Maui with Jody and ParkRat

“We’ve been on social media so long that @Parkrat thought he’d already met @amauiblog IRL! Here with @JodyYoshida @theoutletsmaui!” – @Melissa808

As expected, it was fun meeting Russ.  I just wish I had the presence of mind to clobber @Parkrat while he was here, because I think that’s how ladies express their love and appreciation of @Parkrat -LOL!. @RachelWatroba did the honor of doing it. Yep, best shot of the night!

Best shot of the night! @rachelwatroba clobbered @parkrat so naturally @theoutletsmaui! #TOOMHunt

The food served at Pi Artisan Pizzaria was so yummy. Ohh I love hot stuff and this pizza with jalopenos  is the bomb! Yum yum yum!

We played “Instagram Photo Hunt” and used the hashtag #TOOMHunt.  When they first told me about the hashtag to use, my reaction was “huh?” (I was wondering where that came from. Sounds like Indiana Jones Tomb Hunt).  Turns out it stands for “The Outlet Of Maui Hunt”  Ah, #TOOMHunt – now that makes sense – lol!   So to see all the photos we took during the tweet up just search for that hashtag #TOOMHunt on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Lots of fun photos – you really should check it out.

It was very nice seeing friends at the tweet-up – that’s the best part. But it’s also nice seeing all the shops (I am planning on coming back to shop), eating pizza at Pi Artisan Pizzaria, watching the Lahaina Sunset, and for finale stopping by the Fudge Hawaii Fudge Company before we head home :)

Here are some more photos from last night. Enjoy! (I will add caption later but for now I need to log off for an errand so no captions for these, just photos for now)

The Buy Back The Beach $5K Challenge

The other day I shared about Buy Back The Beach Benefit Luau 2012 on my previous post. I know most of us want to help in one way or another. I want to highlight one thing that I think all of us can easily do, and yet leave maximum impact. You don’t have to be on Maui to do this…

THE  BUY BACK THE BEACH $5,000 challenge!  If we raise $5,000 by the end of the day on January 28, a generous donor will match it. That mean $10,000 for the protection and preservation of the beaches of Hawaii.  How to do it? Easy – just click the button below and it’ll take you to the Paypal file where you can donate, safely.

 *  To all my friends active on social media, let me share something with you … we are on a challenge here too.  Maui is still relatively new when it comes to harnessing the power of social media to do social good. I am stoked that HILT is willing to give this a try by collaborating with us, some of the active social media users on Maui, to help them achieve this mission of protecting and preserving Maui Beaches.  Would you do me a favor and help us social media users on Maui show our community that there is social media is for social good?  Any amount will be appreciated.  You can also help by sharing of this post to you and encouraging them to give.  I promise I won’t inundate you with fundraising posts – it’s just that this  one is for Maui, and I am A Maui Blog.  Aloha!

* If you donated, please leave a comment saying you did so we can publicly thank you via our tweets and posts.  Mahalo!
