Gentlemen, take note. The last Friday of each month, ladies head to Grand Wailea for Divas Night Out. This Friday's fun starts at the resort's Botero Bar, where you'll find live entertainment as well as Skinnitinis and SkinniBites.
"The Skinnitinis include the Creamsicle, the Pure Sunshine and the Spanish Martini, and they all have 150 calories or less," says the resort's director of public relations, Christina Yumul.
"The SkinniBites include artisan cheese plates, crab quesadillas and a variety of tapas. And, yes, there will be another Brighton Jewelry giveaway just like last time."

Those who wish to continue the fun may reserve a spot for $60 per person at Spa Grande, where you get two hours' access to the spa's hydrotherapy, along with a fashion show, chocolate mini-spa treatments, chocolate desserts of truffles, caramels and fondues, and goodie bags.
In addition, Grand Wailea will present another dinner in its Toast! series Friday at a cost of $100 per person in Humuhumunukunukuapua'a. It features five courses of gourmet food paired with wines by Ferrari-Carano. The winery's Jim Selfridge will be on hand to chat up guests.
