Aloha. It’s amazing how one simple word can transport you from the dreary Boston weather to a warm and tropical beach, where even cocktails need umbrellas to find shade from the sun. We have the Coconut Waikiki Hotel to thank for this lovely daydream, and we’re just not ready to return to the reality of an impending snowstorm.
Since we can’t hop a flight to the Aloha State anytime soon, we’re going to pretend we’re there by watching Hawaii-centric movies and drinking a piña colada (or two). Care to join us?
