Mint Eight-O: Aloha!
March 3, 2017 | The Mint Museum Uptown
A record number of almost 400 guests celebrated the Eightieth Anniversary of the Mint Museum on Friday, March 3 at Mint Eight-O – part of the Mint Museum Auxiliary's annual Room to Bloom event series. A throw-back to the original Hawaii Five-O, guests were welcomed with the traditional “lei greeting” upon arrival to the Mint Museum UPTOWN. Clad in traditional Hawaiian shirts, bartenders poured “Kanawalu” cocktails (which means “eighty” in Hawaiian). The Bad Daddies wowed the crowd with non-stop hits from the 70s and 80s, while scenes from the original Hawaii Five-O series played in the background. Held in the 5th floor expansion space, the event décor included gold pineapples, traditional tiki totems and Hawaiian foliage. Photos by Jeff Palmer with PPT PHOTOGRAPHY
