Fergie got it just right in 2006. Well, almost.
1 - According to the Girl Scout rules, the dancers are too old to be brownies.

In 2014, there's another -icious that guarantees to be tasty, tasty. Localicious Hawaii just launched this weekend, offering you a tasty way to help raise money for agricultural education in local elementary schools.
More than 65 of Hawaii's top restaurants picked some of their favorite dishes featuring locally grown or sourced ingredients. Each is marked with a Localicious logo on the menu. Every time the dish is ordered, one dollar will be donated to a program that offers kids hands-on experience growing and harvesting their own crops.
So sample the Tomato & Mozzarella Salad with prosciutto, house made truffled mozzarella, Drylands Nursery micro basil tossed with truffle oil, Kona Sea Salt and smoked balsamic reduction at 3660 on the Rise. Taste the Roy's Ko Olina's Shinsato crispy pork belly, Kauai prawns, gingered Molokai sweet potato puree, Mao and Kahumana Farms organic vegetables, Dry Lands Nursery micro cilantro and Maui Gold pineapple sauce. Order up Hoku's Imperial jumbo prawns with wok fried vegetables and fried rice, or any other Localicious dish at other participating restaurants such as Alan Wong's, Chef Chai, Greens & Vines, Halekulani Orchids, Hukilau, Japengo, Le Bistro, Madre Chocolate, Morimoto Waikiki, Mermaid Bar and Mariposa at Neiman Marcus, Ola, Prima, Side Street Inn Kapahulu, The Grove, Tiki's Grill & Bar, Town and more.
To get you started, Localicious and Lei Chic are giving away dinner at Hoku's. Enter to win by March 17.
