Saturday (June 5), The Rainbow House, Ka’anapali, 5-10pm, $100 suggested donation
Ugh…“swank.” Overused, it’s fast becoming antiquated in my personal dictionary (its roots do go back nearly two centuries). Everything is swanky this, swanky that—so much so that things with real swagger garner a little less (insert onomatopoeia of choice) when the word is applied. So while still in search of a replacement term, I’ll stress that when we at MauiTime say “swank,” we mean it; and plans for the Plantation Jazz benefit for the Arts Education for Children Group (AECG) promise nothing but. The organization, “dedicated to improving the quality of education in our schools by restoring music programs,” scored with crackerjack community-organizer Matt Lane orchestrating Saturday’s event. To be held on the grounds of the multi-million dollar Rainbow House at Ka’anapali Coffee Farms, the event will feature the 17-piece big band The 1 O’clock Jazz Band from Montana State University, plus steel guitar master Henry Allen and other musical guests. Peruse art installations, informational booths, and play “Family Feud” with GameShow Fanatics. From the beverages and pupus by Chef Casey Piquet and Kona Red Coffee Fruit, to the panoramic views from the saline infinity pool, attendees will do good for our keiki and feel, well, swanky. 808-357-0920 / [email protected]
Wanna know just how bad-ass this Rainbow House venue is? I had a look at the spec-sheet (it’s for sale). Seeing as I don’t think the event lets you go inside, this may be as close as you get. Here’s the verbatim scoops:
Situated on 5.13 acres. / Approximately 3,600 sq ft of living space and 2,400 sq ft of lanais overlooking breathtaking panoramic views. / 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. / One-story open floor plan perfect for island-style indoor/outdoor living. / Dramatic 18 foot vaulted cedar ceiling in the Great Room. / African mahogany, Jatoba (Brazilian cherry), granite and travertine finishes throughout house. / Master bedroom retreat with private lanais, wet bar and en suite bathroom with whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. / Gourmet custom kitchen. / State-of-the-art Media Room and home security system. / Furnished with an eclectic collection of pieces that enhance the plantation-inspired architecture. / Energy efficient solar photovoltaic system. / Saline infinity pool with spa and outdoor shower.
