It’s never a great way to start the day with your normally dependable ride to and from work (and everything in between) stuttering and eventually stalling roadside. Really, it’s a crappy way to start the day. A call for roadside assistance was sent to VIP Towing, and after a 90-minute wait, a VIP tow truck […]

There’s a first for everything, and today I got my first banned review on Yelp. The email I received said that my review “fell outside our Content Guidelines as it did not appear to describe a customer experience.” Yelp’s Content Guidelines are available here. So I do admit that I was hangry when writing the […]
Did my Yelp duty and reviewed Timmy T’s Gourmet Grinders and Japanese Restaurant Aki. Definitely liked the sub sandwiches at Timmy T’s over the Japanese dishes of Aki. Doubt I’ll go back to Aki but will give Timmy T’s One More Try.
Yup, it could happen. Business owners are fighting back with lawsuits to counter the damage done by poor reviews submitted by customers. Here’s one example where a review of a dog obedience service turned into $65,000 defamation lawsuit. Now I don’t know the truth, and I don’t know where the $65K figure came from, but […]
Not like I’m headed towards Yelp Elite-ness or anything, but I was in the mood to review some of my recent visits. So I Yelped about: Bob’s Bar-B-Que. 4 stars. Servco Toyota Windward. 5 stars. Mexico Restaurant. 3 stars. Now if a current Yelp Elite member decides to nominate me for elite status, I would […]
Had a trip to the Kaimuki area today and chose Verde Kaimuki for lunch. An excellent choice! Flavorful, fast service, and very affordable. Read my entire review on Yelp. Here’s my filling Mexican Loco Moco. The food was so satisfying that we ventured to the Humane Society and almost adopted a dog, Reebok. Say what?
Over the weekend, I had my first exposure to Ice Forest in Downtown. From what I understand, this place is related to Ice Garden in Aiea and has a similar style. Read my Yelp review for the details of my visit. But to summarize, I loved the flavors but not the hugeness of the creations. […]
Contributing a short Yelp review for the non-Starbucks in Skagway, Alaska. So while this non-Starbucks cafe serves Starbucks, touring Skagway with a hot cup of coffee is just more fun. 🙂 Read my Yelp review for the non-Starbucks in Skagway, AK. More coffee experiences captured in Coffee While Cruising – Part 1, Part 2, Part […]
No, I didn’t go to Tam’s Shoe Repair Shop in Kaimuki to get shoes repaired. Instead I needed work done on a suitcase handle that broke while packing for our Disney cruise to Alaska. Checking around it seems Tam’s Shoe Repair Shop is the place. This little local shop is the only authorized Samsonite luggage […]
Thanks to the confident Q-chi, I have a mini-collection of Yelp Elite mini buttons. Yay! Thanks and Happy Holidays to Yelp (Hawaii).
I got my promotional Supabowzooka Shirt from the Farmers Hawaii and Yelp partnership. How about you? Much thanks to Farmers Hawaii and their social media crew!
Oh, now what’s this? Farmers Hawaii is teaming up with Yelp for a social media giveaway featuring the Supabowzooka. It’s real simple to win. In real life, head on over to the Farmers Hawaii HQ at Six Waterfront Plaza then fire up Yelp on your mobile device (um well, yeah, you need one of these […]
