Many of us have seen the movie, “The Descendants.” Some of the scenes were shot here on Kauai, including at the Lihue Airport, Hanalei Bay and Tahiti Nui. I have mentioned a few times sitting in the George Clooney seat at the Nui. A scene where the characters drive to a spectacular spot that overlooks property that in the movie is the site for a planned development was shot at Kipu Ranch.
Here is a short description of “The Shadow Box,” the latest Kauai Community Players production that opens Feb. 15: “In this compelling dramatic triptych, three terminal cancer patients dwell in separate cottages on a hospital’s grounds. The three are attended and visited by family and close friends: Agnes and her mother Felicity, estranged further by the latter’s dementia; Brian and Beverly, whose marital complications are exacerbated by Brian’s new lover, Mark; and Joe and Maggie, unready for the strain of Joe’s impending death and its effect on their teenage son.”
South Koreans invested in properties overseas in 2018 to the tune of half a billion U.S. dollars, according the Bank of Korea.
The first impression of Monico’s Taqueria Kauai might not be the best. Parking. Because the spaces in the parking lot are for more than one business and are more for compact cars than larger vehicles, it can be a tight squeeze, and some SUV drivers find that annoying. They might even give up and leave.
