ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Get, share ideas for keiki party venues
Among the duties that come with parenthood: finding fun, new places to throw your little one's birthday party. Venues with special party packages cut out a lot of the stress. Maybe the Honolulu Zoo for your wild child? The Dress Up Corner for the little princess? Chuck E. Cheese's for some old-school fun?
If you need ideas for keiki party places or have suggestions to share, join our conversation on Twitter by using hashtag #islandlife. Reporter Zenaida Serrano — @zenaidaserrano on Twitter — may include some of your ideas in an upcoming article and on her blog at www.TheA-ZFiles.HonAdv Blogs.com. Feel free to contact Serrano at 535-8174 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
