  • Kawika Kahiapo: Playing Guitar, Singing Songs & Inspiring Hula at Kani Ka Pila Grille

    Destination: Oahu

    kawika kahiapo playing guitar at kani ka pila grilleRight at 6:00 as the sun made its descent in Waikiki, throwing a golden glow on the volcanic crater known as Diamond Head--or Leahi in Hawaiian--three women strolled through the lobby of Outrigger Reef on the Beach. They beelined--as best as the women, one using a cane, could beeline--for Kani Ka Pila Grille, and parked themselves at a particular table--a four-top with a direct view of the stage where Kawika Kahiapo was tuning his slack key guitar.

  • Maui Snares the Sun

    Destination: Maui

    Someone asked me last year what my preferred super powers would be if a trail of smoke spiraled up from a bottle and materialized into a genie. And my answer, my super hero of choice: Maui, the Hawaiian demi-god who is credited with many feats. Using his magic hook, he fished up the Hawaiian Islands out of the sea. He carried the sky on his back up all 10,023 feet of Haleakala on the island that bears his name and pushed the sky higher. He discovered the secret of fire making from a bird. But that's not all.
