Hawai'i is very far from Alaska, Idaho, and Wyoming....
As a Hawai'i resident, and a regular reader and contributor here, I would like to know what it would take for Hawai'i to have its own Board. Hawai'i posts dominate the "Elsewhere in America" Board; my guess would be they constitute over 90% of activity.
Therefore, I think it would make a lot of sense to have a Hawai'i specific board. Thematically, Hawaiian food is in its own category; and it is clearly a geographically and culturally unique part of the country (like New Orleans you could say). And it is one of America's no. #1 vacation spots, so it is likely that many people specifically interested in Hawai'i food would appreciate a clearer way to find its location on Chowhound.
I'd appreciate any feedback on the possibility.
