Besides being the gateway to summer, the month of May is known for some very high profile events with particular meaning to Hawaii, such as May Day, which is celebrated as Lei Day, and of course history has made Memorial Day much more meaningful here in Hawaii.
Outranking them all is probably Mother’s Day, and mom definitely has a lot to celebrate at Waikiki Beach Walk. In fact, Waikiki Beach Walk offers the best options for celebrating Mother’s Day in Waikiki.
Top of the list of the reasons why would be Waikiki’s best selection of dining, where mom gets to choose from a fabulous selection ranging from exquisite, award-winning fine dining to unique, out of the ordinary, fast-casual fare that she can take to the beach. (And grab the latest trend in swimsuits on the way from one of Waikiki Beach Walk’s unique beach boutiques).

That’s already pretty special day, but here’s what’s making this Mother’s Day even more extraordinary this year: Ruth’s Chris Steak House is open special hours for that entire Mother’s Day weekend: Saturday from 12pm – 10:30pm and Sunday: 11am – 9pm.

Giovanni Pastrami is presenting an extraordinary Mother’s Day Brunch from 10 am to 2 pm, with a special Triple Play plate for just $24.

What’s a Triple Play, you ask? Why, it’s a charming (and we assume completely fulfilling) sampler of  Eggs Benedict, pancakes and Loco Moco all on one plate, of course.

For those not satisfied with that, they also have waffles.

Be sure and throw in a couple of mimosas for a special price of $6.

Mother of Pearls

This is a revolution for luxury jewelry because Kolohe custom-made jewelry means that you will have a special piece that no one else has, and that means the affordable will eventually become priceless.

And speaking of priceless, let’s talk about your mom and how Kolohe wants to make your mom happy for her upcoming Big Day. So from May 1st to the 14th, you can get 15% off of all Pearl Jewelry and Pearl Custom Jewelry as well.
