Lahaina just got fun again. The Dirty Monkey is a proper bar, restaurant and late night club all wrapped up into one second level balcony location across the street from Lahaina Fish Co. It’s good to see that Alen Aivazian, Brandon Bradford, Ryan Sweeney and Matthew Robb saw the potential to breathe new life in […]
Wailuku hit the artisan sandwich lottery when 808 on Main opened a few weeks ago. While it seems odd that we didn’t have a panini shop within 10 miles of town, I’m now addicted to eating them. What’s more, 808 on Main has taken it upon themselves to also offer us cocktails and wine–and a 4-7pm pau […]
Given the attention we pay on the U.S. Border Patrol, Mexico has a proud history of quashing invasions. On May 5, 1862, they kicked the French out on their fashionable asses in the Battle of Pueblo. An unexpected win, the 8,000 well-equipped French had already blown through Veracruz on their way to Mexico City. President […]
Slappy Cakes, which offers make-your-own pancakes in Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, Oregon and our own Maui, has up to recently had very unusual business hours. Though their locations come equipped with full bars serving a wide variety of cocktails, the location in Honokowai was only open for breakfast and lunch. Those wanting to to make […]

But none of that stopped Lahaina Grill from rolling out a great fall cocktail menu. Lahaina Grill offers an elegant experience when supping in Lahaina, but my favorite spot in their lovely […]

DESCRIPTION: Nature, exquisite foods and luxurious beverages intersect flawlessly at the Point Bar at Merriman’s Kapalua. The gorgeous deck area has loungy comfortable seating, umbrellas for shade, even a couch and a fire pit for sundown.
