August brought us yet another busy month of conferences, banquets and fun public events. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) 2015 General Assembly held earlier this month brought more than 2,500 astronomers from 75 countries around the globe to Hawaii. The 11-day convention was one of the largest professional astronomy conferences in IAU’s history and we are honored that Hawai‘i was selected to host this conference.
We are also looking forward to the upcoming Hawaii Food and Wine Festival where our Rooftop Garden will be the venue for “Hawaiian Airlines Presents Corks & Forks Pacific Coast” on September 12th. 20 celebrity chefs will feature their dishes created with Hawaii’s local produce. There will also be tastings of craft cocktails, specialty beers and white wines. Looking forward to this wonderful event!
