Ritz parking, and milk vs. peanut butter...?

If we want to have dinner at the Ritz lounge, will valet or parking be free?

Also, kind of odd question, but in general which costs more at a maui grocery store, milk or peanut butter?

Thanks! Two weeks to go!

Validated parking is indeed the deal, a tip is good.

In general, milk costs more-because peanut butter is something that comes in many varieties, is pretty shelf stable, and can be shipped slow boat. If you want a special brand/type, you might want to pack it in your checked luggage (not carry on).

I have never had to validate parking at any of the resorts while eating dinner. Just tell the valet you have dinner reservations

I've had it happen both ways--depends on the property, time of year, occupancy, and any special events.

Anywho-parking will be free, except for a tip! Have fun, if Clay Mortenson is singing you are in for a treat.

We forgo milk for juice on Maui but peanut butter always travels in our checked bags. Gotta have our peanut butter!

Skip the milk and get the peanut butter + jelly.

Unless something has changed, the Ritz has tons of free parking and is only a few minutes from the lobby and milk by far is more expensive.

Having dinner at the Ritz and worrying about paying for parking seems a little bass akward to me.

Last summer at Costco on Kauai we bought 2 gallons of milk for about $8 from what I remember. Pretty cheap in my opinion.

To me its either park the car yourself or tip the valet. These guys get paid next to nothing and a lot are working two jobs to make ends meet.
