Today was a no agenda Saturday for the most part. Jon and Lou (Lina was at work) wanted to do a drive into Chinatown, Kakaako, Ala Moana Park, and Waikiki for Pokemon Community Day or something like that… to catch poke stops. I only half know what I’m talking about because I’m not into that stuff.… Continue Reading “Pokemon Community Day or something”
Another one bites the dust. WTF is going on in Honolulu with all these establishments closing?? These are not fly by night, untested places.
Local news just had a headline and story that Kobe Japanese Steakhouse is closing at the end of the month.
Last week Gordon Biersch at Aloha Tower closed abruptly.
This place must be our favorite stop-in for meal place when we’re anywhere in town. We were just here a few weeks ago…

Well alright then, it’s not a nature hike or anything, but we did get out and walk… the mall and stuff… does that qualify?

Last weekend Lou and I talked about doing something more active and out of the ordinary like venturing into Chinatown to just walk around. That’s what we did today. Just to get out, walk, and be away from the Ewa side for a while. So we walked thru the marketplace… Lou bought some atis.

It was more than just a drunk driving pedestrian accident. To me it is more than DUI and manslaughter charges. It should be three counts of murder plus whatever other charges for fleeing police, reckless driving, and whatever else can be stacked against this motherf***er for the non-fatal injuries. As soon… Continue Reading “Horrific pedestrian accident in Kakaako”
Yesterday’s top and continuing coverage news story was about a high rise condominium fire by the Ala Wai on the mauka side, a place called Marco Polo condos. There are fires every now and then, typically confined to one unit or one house. But this kind of thing I only see on TV somewhere else in the country… Continue Reading “Scary high-rise building fire on Kapiolani Blvd”
Local Hawaii news. Read the News Stories on Star Advertiser or KHON TV news. In short, Secret Service agent in Hawaii a couple of years ago for OPEC security has a few drinks prior to the summit, goes to a Mickey Dees in Waikiki, allegedly tries to break up an unfolding beef involving a rowdy local dude, and shoots… Continue Reading “Not guilty verdict for Deedy”
Sunday, another day out and about. We went to the Bishop Museum. Lou, me, Peaches, Lina, Mom and Noel all went (in 2 cars). I don’t want to say I have no appreciation for Hawaiian history or anything like that, but even if it was Guam or any other historical museum, I just don’t get into it.
There was … Continue Reading “Visited Bishop Museum”
This, no doubt, will become one of the notorious Oahu shootings. What a tense standoff and wild ending, to say the leas last week, 11 days ago. This incident also coincidentally has ties to other personal events…. which I mention behind closed doors in the Back Room…… Continue Reading “Sand Island Shooting incident”
