“The Counter” Opening Party

Last night I attended the grand opening party for The Counter, the latest wave of new burger joints to hit Honolulu. Daniel Dae Kim is part owner and invited a few of his closest friends… It was definitely the place to be!

I’m posting the Image of me and Josh Holloway first since so many people we extremely envious that he showed up after they left.

Paula Bender - Every picture tells a story, don’t it? Apologies to Rod Stewart. Looks like the LOST cast was all smiles at The Counter’s grand opening party. My friends all look so beautiful posing with the stars. Nice, Jeannemarie!

Victoria Shioi - I’m so sad I wasn’t there! I’m sure The Counter in Hawaii is a million times better than the ones here. I’m hope it does well, Daniel deserves super awesome success!
