You may have been following my Piping Quest, in which I am checking off each U.S. state in which I play, with the ultimate goal of collecting the whole set. This week while at a conference, I was able to play in Hawaii, bringing my total to 23 states plus Washington, D.C. and a few other places.
I had been in contact with the proprietor of several Irish pubs in Honolulu, including Kelley O’Neil’s in Waikiki. A short walk from my hotel, I played for a while before the band started up. I even got a couple of free drinks out of it!
