“It’s an exciting time for Burgers and Things. This year alone we were crowned “World’s Best Burger” and we are continuing to expand our menu as well as launch new events,” says Burgers and Things business partner, Elizabeth Hata-Watanabe. “The support of the Pauoa community and diners from around the island has been invaluable and we are so thankful for their ongoing support. We hope that they come out this August to celebrate with us!”

One grand prize winner will also get to “meat” comic book writer, David Michelinie during a private pop up dinner featuring dishes prepared by Chef Limcaco on August 28. Michelinie is a legendary writer responsible for creating the character Venom in the Spider-Man storylines, Scott Lang in Ant-Man, and so many comic book stories from Iron Man, The Avengers, and Star Wars.

Diane Ako

Peace of mind By Diane Ako I like to reflect on life. Sometimes it’s philosophically. Sometimes it’s humorously. For all its beauty, life is far too difficult a journey to take alone. You need the support and connection with others to help carry you along the way. Writing brings me that connection– within and without. It clarifies my thoughts and feelings. It helps me reach out to others for advice, wisdom, or feedback. Your thoughts become your actions. Your actions become you. A wise yogi- Patanjali- said, “Speak what is true. Speak what is pleasant.” Let’s speak of things pleasant to one another and seek some peace of mind along the way. ABOUT Diane Ako joined Hawaii: In Real Life in October 2016. She likes being part of a community of local bloggers – people who like writing and sharing, like she does. Ako is an anchor/ reporter at Island News (KITV4 – ABC) in Honolulu. She previously anchored and reported at KHON2 (FOX) and KHNL (NBC), and at stations in California, New Mexico, and Pennsylvania, In between news jobs, in 2017, she launched and ran her own p.r. company, Diane Ako PR.
