Eat – Drink – Play: Oahu

As summer approaches, most of you lucky people will be jetting off to warm and tropical week-long vacations. 7 days of indulging in perfect temperature oceans, delicious and seriously-sugary alcoholic beverages, and gorgeous sunsets perfect for Instagram.

Eat – Drink – Play: New York City
