Kudos to Moani Tolentino (she’s the new Hawaiian culture director at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa!), who got help from Sandi Quinsaat in hosting a great, two-day Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole (the state and county are closed Tuesday for the Kuhio holiday) Celebration (we need to call it a “ho‘olaule‘a”)!

Kudos to Elyse Litvack and The Mokihana Club on a great scholarship fundraising concert featuring Keola Beamer (how many of you remember when they used to play at Territorial Tavern, or Arakawa’s?)!

Mariano Catbagan Jr. said the Grove Farm Old Time Games was a blast from the past when he tried to explain the workings of the plantation-era rain gauge (his father used to be a ditchman for Lihue Plantation) to his young children Saturday at Grove Farm Museum on Nawiliwili Road in Lihue.
