Taste of Wailea

Taste of Wailea Maui

In my humble opinion, by far the best Maui event of the Maui Film Festival, other than the individual movie watching, is the Taste of Wailea.  Each year, this is the best event because you have an amazing view of the golf course, ocean, neighboring island, and the entire set up of Celestial Cinema.

The food is AMAZING!  There are over a dozen top restaurants offering individual signature pupus.  You’ll also have delicious cocktails, wine and beer served by the best on Maui. Eat and drink to your hearts content, then you walk down to the Celestial Cinema for a few movies under the stars.

This photo was taken with our good friends Joe and Jessica posing with Malin Akerman. Malin was in Maui to promote her film screening of Happythankyoumoreplease, a film shown at the Celestial Cinema. We were all very impressed with how gracious, sweet, and friendly she was with her fans. Malin Akerman has also been in the popular films Watchmen, 27 Dresses, and The Heartbreak Kid. And Yes, she’s just as gorgeous in person as she is on the screen.  Meeting amazing people is just one of the many reasons why the Taste of Wailea is incredible!

This year will be no exception!  If you don’t already have tickets for the Taste of Wailea, hopefully they’re not sold out.
