HD: Aoki's Shave Ice

Aoki's Shave Ice from hawaii on Vimeo.

President's Day 2008 was a spectacularly beautiful day of sun and blue skies, considering the usually grey weather of February. I also unexpectedly had the day off from work. So after a visit to the neighborhood pool, the family and I drove up to Haleiwa for shave ice. Aoki's (66-117 Kamehameha Hwy.) is located a stone's throw from the much more hyped Matsumoto's, but it's our preferred destination for the cool treat.

The above is the embedded video player from Vimeo, one of the few online video hosts to serve up HD content. To see the HD video (and not a scaled and compressed Flash version), however, you need to view it at Vimeo or download the original movie file (63MB/1250x720/MP4). It should look great on an Apple TV.

You can also watch this video via low quality but fast loading Flash players at YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, Viddler, and Blip TV. And several versions of this video (including high-definition MPEG-4 and DivX) can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
