My first episode of Hawaii 5-0 airs tonight! I play Dr. Gabrielle Asano—watch it tonight at ten on CBS! Anyway, now that I’ve opened with some shameless self-promotion, I thought it was only appropriate to post photos from my last trip there (to film episode 7). I flew over on my birthday, and I brought my girlfriend Leslie to help watch Finn when I was on set, and even though we were on the island for less than 48 hours, we had a ridiculously good time.

Our favorite meal had to be brunch at the Beachhouse at The Moana Surfrider. The Moana Surfrider hotel is a 110 year old historical plantation-style hotel. The design feels unique and really special, and the Beachhouse restaurant surrounds an incredible old Banyan tree and overlooks the ocean. Gorgeous. Plus, the food was delicious!!

Hope you tune in tonight! 

Until next time, Oahu…
