********THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED.********
A new little Hawaiian smoothie shack recently opened nearby, so we decided to do some reconnaissance. Ok, I decided to do some reconnaissance, and Mr. Monkey was a champ to accompany me.
As we sauntered past Lauren Conrad's school, I couldn't stop laughing about the excessively tree-lined sidewalk. The arboreal monsters were so overgrown that they clipped Mr. Monkey's head.
Our destination, Maui Wowi Hawaiian (501 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles), was campy-licious.
I got a Wistful Waikiki (strawberry, banana, and piña colada), and Mr. Monkey got a Surf's Up (kiwi, lemon-lime, and piña colada).
Jamba Juice and Robek's. Crazy.
Unlike those bigger chains, though, Maui Wowi Hawaiian gives you a Buy-10-Get-One-Free card, and, if you bring back the crazy plastic tiki cups above to reuse, you get $1.00 off your drink.
Despite the average taste of the smoothies, for these perks, I'll likely return.
Perks are key. As are drinks with umbrellas.ReplyDelete
yay for the fixed wireless router (i'm guessing, anyway)!ReplyDelete
this place looks happy and cheerful. sorry to hear it wasn't super fabulous.
Remember to take a big handbag to carry your cup back for reuse ... I'm not sure I'd want to be seen walking down the street with one of those.ReplyDelete
I think the umbrella instantly makes the drink taste better. A dollar off a drink is a lot! Definitely save that cup :)ReplyDelete
LOL, I must confess that I kinda like the cups. They're goofy.. =)ReplyDelete
*gasp* You went to a chain! I have a Maui Wowi down the street from me. And I went with a real Hawaiian person. I win. ;)ReplyDelete
i love those cups! they're so tacky cute!ReplyDelete
Those are some good perks!ReplyDelete
I also gasped that you went to a chain ;)ReplyDelete
We have one on every corner around my house, but I've never tried it. hmmmm
I've never tried Jamba Juice or Robek's but I'd go to this spot for the cups and perks. :)ReplyDelete
