I’ve had Maui on my mind lately.
It’s not a surprise — I went there (during the height of icepocalypse, no less!) for a story. That story runs in tomorrow’s edition of Dallas Voice.
What’s surprising, though, is that I’m not the only one obsessed with Maui. The finale of the current season of Top Chef, which runs in two parts starting next Wednesday, moves from New Orleans to Maui (it had its finale two seasons ago there, too). And tonight, another Bravo show, the personal trainer romp Toned Up goes to Maui.
I doubt these TV shows went there specifically because of the state’s support for marriage equality — one reason I did. But if I were to guess why people keep heading there? Well, check on the photos below for a clue. And check out our Hawaii coverage Friday!
