Milagro’s Paia Address and Phone One of the quickest ways to a staycation on Maui is to head to Milagro’s in Paia and find yourself some seating on their lanai and take in the Northshore sights. Milagro’s sits right at the crossroads of North Shore and Upcountry, the intersection Hana Highway where Baldwin Avenue begins […]
Yesterday in Paia Town, MauiTime art director, Chris Skiles, caught Adam Sandler reading the latest copy of “MauiTime: Animal Wrongs?” Skiles nabbed a photo, not wanting to miss a chance to highlight Sandler in our new “busted” feature (shots taken by anyone of anyone caught reading MauiTime in public). When Sandler was busted, he was […]

Wow, in an amazing turn of events Dean Wong has transformed the adjoining space to his Green Banana Cafe into a frozen yogurt spot in just 12 days! And not just any frozen yogurt spot he will be making the gourmet stuff that the celebs get in Beverly Hills. Dean Wong, thank you! Does this mean I won’t get fat eating it? Only if I do as much pilates as Jennifer Aniston.
Wong says, “I found friendship and guidance in a great yogurt maker in Beverly Hills who has been so generous and excited in my desire to make such a premium healthy product – he makes yogurt for the celebrities and now I get to make it for you – our STARs!”
Sadly, Jacques is gone. And, “Jacques owned Friday nights on the North Shore,” says Steven Cappelli, owner of Casanova in Makawao. Fear not. The man who brought the beats to the night’s famed “Fusion”—DJ Del Sol—has found a new Friday home, further up the mount hailed the House of the Sun. You guessed it.
A potluck picnic lunch in Spreckelsville sure sounds nice, huh? More than the makings for a swell Saturday, it’s the starts of the Sierra Club’s annual meeting. Add to the fellowship a noontime panel discussion themed “Sharing the Water,” and a feel-good awards ceremony for three of Maui’s do-gooders, and you’re afternoon is set.
From the moment you turn off Hana Highway at their landmark boat and roll down their seaside driveway, your senses are stimulated. The strip of Kuau land the restaurant and inn occupy is geologically well-endowed, with its own private beach and coconut grove; guests are invited to stroll at their leisure
CALENDAR LISTING Paia is a magnet for yoga, health food, bare-feet, acoustic guitars, and brazilian bikinis. Since there are so many environmentally-conscious people hanging around Paia town and its beaches all day anyway, this is a great chance for them to come together and wield their collective activist might to the tune of The Eazy, […]

Here’s to my partners in crime — we figured out how to survive the Paia crawl. We were tootling along in the left-hand lane because we knew the bypass gate was closed. They still wanted to sneak down the right-hand lane and then try to get back into the left — but we skunked ’em! I got halfway into […]

So why not feast all month while restaurants are generously donating to charity? Here are three foodie events to put on your calendar: RESTAURANT WEEK […]
You’ve noticed them. They line the beaches of our island, most notably in Makena. They stand on the sand, tensed and focused, then suddenly break into a sprint. They throw down their boards, like surfboards but lighter and with no fins. In a smooth motion they jump on, skim over water only inches deep and, […]
Paia has a new little burger joint. It’s located at the south end of town, and it’s called Johnny B’s. The renovation of the spot was so well done that I couldn’t remember exactly how that old building looked, but it was one of those places that had been a yoga studio, head shop, clothing […]
Small pot distilled liquors, fresh fruit forward juices and dark boozy floats are a mixologist’s wet dream. Add 10 grand to that and you have a throwdown of the modern Mai Tai, all of it fueled by Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum at the Royal Lahaina Resort. Eleven Maui bartenders rumbled last Wednesday for a chance at […]
