A big crowd showed up at Lucky Strike Social at Ala Moana Center to take in a San Francisco 49ers Viewing Party, hosted by ESPN 1420 and KITV-4. Although the Niners wound up on the losing end to the L.A. Chargers (hey, it’s preseason), everyone still had a good time. After the game, the Bud Light Battle of the Bay Flyaway grand prize drawing was held, and the winner was Cary Murakami of Honolulu! Cary won a trip for two to the Bay Area to see the 49ers host the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 1st. The person who drew Cary’s name was none other than Sean Murakami, one of the stars of Hawaii’s Little League World Series championship team!
