I asked this question in a different topic and it kind of went off-track even though I've enjoyed reading all the responses. I had thought about stopping at costco before heading to Mauna Lani from the airport but thinking if there is a liquor store close by and the prices are comparable we'll just use that one. How close are we to a liquor store and what are the meat prices like in the grocery store compared to costco as well. From what I can see there is no farmer's market close by at the beginning of the trip (we arrive on a monday afternoon)..we are planning a day trip to VNP so maybe we can do that near the beginning and catch the market in Hilo. Also anyplace we can get Orgeat syrup for Mai Tai's? I've been experimenting today and what I came up with is pretty tasty. Going to start a new topic to see what everyone else's recipes for mai tai's are.
