Win a VIP tour of the Hawaii Five-0 set at Morimoto’s fundraiser

And how much will you bid…?

Mrs. Officer 808 and I got a treat this past Saturday night while at dinner at Morimoto’s Waikiki restaurant.  Chef Masaharu Morimoto was in the kitchen himself, whipping up the sushi we ordered!  For dinner, we both had the Surf and Turf- a 6 ounce prime fillet with Morimoto-style ahi poke (raw fish) with an avocado paste and mozarella cheese.

For dessert, we had the haupia semifreddo, a creamy, coconut dessert.

The Chef is in town to promote and host his restaurant’s benefit fundraiser for victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.  Entry is at $150 per person, but one can get table service and champagne for $300.  What caught my eye was a line in the middle: “A live auction will feature flyaway trips, a VIP set visit to Hawaii 5-0, once in a lifetime experience packages, and fabulous gifts.”



Information for Chef Morimoto's benefit fundraiser.

As you know, Chef Morimoto will appear in the upcoming episode “Ma Ke Kahekai”, so I’m not surprised that he was able to coordinate an auction prize from the Five-0 crew.  There’s no promise of the cast being there, in fact they’ll most likely be filming.  I’m interested to see what the package will go for…any takers on the package here?  No matter what the final bid will be, all proceeds from that night will go to relief aid in Japan.

    Ooh, I need to get that Surf N Turf in my life.

    I would think a “VIP set visit” would have to include a meet and greet with the cast, no? Between takes? Although I’d be happy with champagne and a director’s chair…
