Survey Thursday: Favorite Zippy’s?

May 14, 2009

When the answer was revealed during one of our previous Where In Hawaii contests (which was Zippy’s), it was suggested by kuya.d to do a Survey Thursday around that particular topic… So… hurr we are…

We’ve all got our favorite Zippy’s. Our “home base” if you will. This be yo chance to sound off and represent. So without further ado… *clears throat*

Chicky chicky check if your school favorite Zippy’s is in effect – Represent! LOL!

Growing up in H.K. during those “hard core Zippy’s years”, Zippy’s Koko Marina was probably the one I identified with the most. It could’ve been the lunch-pick-up on the way to the beach, the dinner-pick-up on the way home from school/work, the midnight thang after chillin’ at the homey’s crib, or, even the 2AM-er after a long night of shooting 9-ball at Brian’s/Shark’s/Velvet’s (LOL!)… We’d be there. Some close seconds would be the McCully one (that’s usually where the “scenery” was at), and the Kahala one (new and on the way home).

Since Zippy’s is so much a part of all of our cultures, we shouldn’t just limit this survey to locations. What say we open thangs up and share our favorite Zippy’s story/stories as well as our favorite Zippy’s dish(es) while we’re at it? Bonus question: Which Zippy’s have you NOT been to (click here for help or here’s a list: Ala Moana, Dillingham, Ewa, Kahala, Kailua, Kaimuki, Kalihi, Kaneohe, Kaneohe (William Henry Road), Kapahulu, Kahului, Kapolei, Koko Marina, Makiki, Mc Cully, Mililani, Nimitz, Pearl City, Pearl Ridge, Vineyard, Waiau, Wahiawa, Waimalu, Waipahu, Waipio)? I’ll start:

Favorite Zippy’s: Koko Marina (for sentimental reasons)
Favorite Zippy’s Story: I actually applied for Zippy’s back in da high school days and got rejected! How you figgah? Well, I did get called in to their main office for an interview, but never received that final call back… so that is kinda like getting rejected right? So shame! Ah, das ok, I got a higher paying job where I got to eat poke all day (seafood department at Safeway) so it all worked out. 😛
Favorite Zippy’s Dish: Zip Min
Zippy’s Location(s) I’ve Never Been To: Ewa, Kalihi, Kaneohe (William Henry Road location), Kahului, Kapolei, Waipahu. Just 6 out of 25? Not bad at all… 8)

Go get um yo!

Happy Survey Thursday… Woo Hoo it’s almost TGI(F)F!

Oh yeah, for you old older peeps, here’s a blast from the past (70’s) that you might enjoy! No offense! 😉

For those more my age, hea’s a classic (starring Jade Moon). If you’ve never seen either of these two videos, zip it! 😛

My thoughts and prayers go out to hemajang and the Yoshida family during this difficult time… 😦

Get With Da Program!

September 15, 2008

So this weekend, we met with our emcee to be Bruddah Bryan. He’s an old friend and ex college roommate (shout out to Noelani apartment!), and is holding it down now as one of KCCN FM 100’s radio personalities.

Nimitz Zippy’s was the location of choice as we chatted a bit and discussed the possibilities for the day’s events. We’ve got a few interesting things up our sleeves for our Asian/Japanese-themed shindig, but wanted to do another “reach-out” to all y’all for suggestions you may have for us. Ya know… things you personally enjoy as a guest to a wedding (or even pet peeves of things you don’t like) or unique and interesting things you’ve witnessed. From the program to the music to various activities inspired from the motherland, we’re trying hard to make it a unique event to remember. Holla atcho boy if ya gots any gems for us (post ’em below please)! 🙂

P.S. Thanks for always helping a brutha out with these things. I’ve got a pretty good understanding of what would make a fun event for me as a guy (beer and booty shakin’ music come to mind), but I’m pretty clueless when it comes to a more mainstream, female friendly event. 🙂

Happy Monday yo!
