Did this: Sony Open awards gala

While most of you were paying attention to the annual Sony Open in Hawaii (@SonyOpenHawaii) for the golf this past weekend, I — the non-golfer — checked out one of its fabulous food events … of course. The Pro-Am awards gala was held in the Hawaii Convention Center on Friday night, a much-awaited event that always features a renowned chef’s creations and an up-close-and-personal mini concert by a famous band or musician.

It was pretty crowded, so it wasn’t easy to get photos, but here’s a quick look at what I did:

The main hall downstairs was transformed into a gorgeous ballroom with lights creating tapestry, grand chandeliers, and artful centerpieces.

Here’s Chicago performing their still-popular “If you leave me now” ballad:

Mahalo to Wedge Lee for the invitation!
