Obamas in Hawaii: Golf, Dinner, Relaxation

Dec 29, 2011 7:03am

President Obama and the first lady enjoyed a night out with friends, with a leisurely three-hour dinner at Alan Wong’s Restaurant. The upscale eatery specializes in Hawaiian Regional Cuisine and is a favorite of the first couple.

Two years ago, Wong traveled to Washington to prepare a luau at the White House Congressional picnic. The Obamas regularly dine at the Honolulu restaurant while on vacation and on Wednesday night sat at their usual table, with the president seated with his back to the wall – in what Wong has described as the “Feng Shui” seat in the restaurant.

The group ordered off of a special tasting menu, though no word on what that entailed.

Earlier in the afternoon, the president spent the afternoon golfing at the Ko’olau Golf Club, considered to be one of the world’s most challenging courses from the back tees, with friends Mike Ramos, Greg Orme and Bobby Titcomb. The outing marked the third time the president has played golf since arriving to the islands on Friday.
