We're looking for the trash fence

We've been in Hawai'i for about three weeks now and we're settling in quite nicely. Originally we landed in Waikiki to a place we had setup to be in for a month as a launching pad to check out neighborhoods and find an apartment. After about 10 days though we found a great place in the Kaka'Ako neighborhood. We're directly across from Ala Moana Park which is both a great park, beach and surfing area! Our place looks West and South offering us great views of the Pacific Ocean during the day (the makai side) and of the city and mountains at night (the mauka side).  There's a ton of shops, restaurants, and geek spaces in the neighborhood most of which we've yet to explore. But we did manage to find Real A Gastropub (@realgastropub1). This place has awesome beer on tap, hundreds of bottles I've not even started to look at a tapas style menu with amazing items like duck confit corndogs and candied bacon! Yep, things are working out here just fine.
