And how much will you bid…?
Mrs. Officer 808 and I got a treat this past Saturday night while at dinner at Morimoto’s Waikiki restaurant. Chef Masaharu Morimoto was in the kitchen himself, whipping up the sushi we ordered! For dinner, we both had the Surf and Turf- a 6 ounce prime fillet with Morimoto-style ahi poke (raw fish) with an avocado paste and mozarella cheese.
For dessert, we had the haupia semifreddo, a creamy, coconut dessert.
The Chef is in town to promote and host his restaurant’s benefit fundraiser for victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Entry is at $150 per person, but one can get table service and champagne for $300. What caught my eye was a line in the middle: “A live auction will feature flyaway trips, a VIP set visit to Hawaii 5-0, once in a lifetime experience packages, and fabulous gifts.”
As you know, Chef Morimoto will appear in the upcoming episode “Ma Ke Kahekai”, so I’m not surprised that he was able to coordinate an auction prize from the Five-0 crew. There’s no promise of the cast being there, in fact they’ll most likely be filming. I’m interested to see what the package will go for…any takers on the package here? No matter what the final bid will be, all proceeds from that night will go to relief aid in Japan.
Monday’s episode “Na Me’e Laua Na Paio”is the first new episode in three weeks! Unfortunately, March 28th’s episode is another repeat, “Hana ‘a’a Makehewa” (Victor Hesse’s return and Chin’s kidnapping). CBS has not announced the April 4th episode. April 11th’s episode is a new episode titled “Ma Ke Kahakai”.
Update: Yes, the NCAA Finals is on the Monday night time slot that Five-0 usually fills as many of you pointed out.
Catch the official CBS promo photos for the next two episodes: “Na Me’e Laua Na Paio” (Heroes and Villians) and “Ma Ke Kahakai” (my preliminary translation- “Along the beach”?) on Facebook.

Taryn Manning appears in Playboy
Mike Gordon reported last night:
The actress and singer will appear on the magazine’s April cover next to a headline that touts its “Sex & Music Issue, starring Hawaii Five-0’s Taryn Manning Nude.”
The 32-year-old Manning, who appeared in three episodes of “Five-0,” told her fans about the photo spread today in a post on Twitter: “Haha!! Nothing to be scared of, its beautiful art and I’m not full nude at all. U barely see anything, very tasteful.”
As you know, Playboy has the best articles, interviews and jokes. There are a lot of words on many of the pages for you to read. Scattered throughout the magazine are a few photos of attractive women, but they’re nowhere near as enthralling as the words of the articles. I can’t wait for the George Jones article!
Taryn is currently in Hawaii promoting her new movie “Heaven’s Rain”.
From Audrey Magazine:
Asian Canadian actress Grace Park may be surfin’ and shootin’ it up in Oahu for her CBS series Hawaii Five-O, but her heart is clearly back home in Vancouver. She’s getting behind PETA to support their latest campaign to save Canada’s seal pups. According to PETA, every year, tens of thousands of harp seal pups — some as young as 2 weeks old — are beaten with clubs, shot, impaled with hooks, and even skinned alive for their fur as their mothers helplessly watch nearby. Get more information at PETA.org.
