Eh Crazy Dolphin Lady!

17.44.EH BRAH

Eh, crazy dolphin lady: you started coming around our beautiful South Maui bay. You go after the spinner dolphin pod, frantically swimming towards them, chasing them, trying to touch them and even hitch a ride by grabbing their dorsal fins. Seriously, you’re a menace. Dolphins are great ambassadors of love, but sometimes humans who lack of […]

MauiTime 2013 Bar Guide and Happy Hour Listings

  Booze is a tricky thing. We’re living in a kind of Liquor Renaissance, but on Maui we have to tiptoe around the draconian rules of our county Department of Liquor Control.

800px-Starr_061017-1183_Cocos_nucifera

This is a tough one. Kihei isn’t exactly a walkable town–sidewalks are rare and portions of South Kihei Road more closely resemble a street racing course than a local thoroughfare–and it’s pretty much the best definition of “urban sprawl” I’ve yet found in Hawaii.

Teens Party On South Maui Beach!

15.40.EH-BRAH

This goes out to those six drunken jerks who were partying like college kids on a South Maui beach late one night. Not only did you make complete asses of yourselves, but you trashed the beach with your broken bottles and dumped charcoal. It’s too bad that some kid will come by and injure himself […]
