Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort Highlights

Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort Pool

For five years I worked at Dolby Laboratories located in this area.  Currently, Dolby is moving to the mid-Market area of town, but for many, many years (and when I worked there) the offices were located in Potrero Hill. When I first started working there I thought one of the drawbacks at the time was that there weren't enough restaurants in the area, but after taking the time … [Read more...]
