Mobile Hotspots

Lei ChicYou're starving and you've got 15 minutes between meetings to get lunch and pound it. But the thought of a greasy McMeal makes you want to McHurl.

The setting is romantic: a picnic lunch underneath a mango tree in the Nu`umealani Gardens at the Contemporary Art Museum. You sit on the complimentary lauhala mat, staring into each others eyes and .... hope to Jesus he’s the first to break this awkward silence.
