kani ka pila grille and cyril pahinui

This Saturday, Kani Ka Pila Grille celebrates five years of nightly Hawaiian music--live from 6 to 9--at the outdoor eatery. That's 1,820 days of continuous performances and 5,460 hours of music. At a minimum, Cyril Pahinui had played 780 hours of the total. The Hawaiian music legend--and son of Gabby "Pops" Pahinui--is so committed to his Wednesday night gig that he only signs contracts for other performances if they guarantee he'll be back by 6:00 each Wednesday evening. I love this about Uncle Cyril. "I made a commitment," he once told me, referring to his schedule. 

Uncle headlines a special luau celebration this Saturday in honor of the restaurant's five-year milestone. It's already sold out. No surprise there. However, you can still catch the vibe every other night of the week with musicians like Brother Noland, Weldon Kekauoha, Sean Naauao, Kawika Kahiapo, and Manoa DNA.

Besides music isn't the only celebration going on Saturday. In the morning, a crew from Friends of Hawi`loa will be on hand to talk about the art and science of Polynesian navigating. For the past several years, while the voyaging canoe has been in dry dock going through restoration, the canoe's steering blade has been on display at Outrigger Reef on the Beach. This Saturday, in a ceremony, it will be returned to the sailors for Hawi`loa's imminent return to the water.

So, there are a few reasons to make a visit to Outrigger Reef on the Beach in three short days.
