As I recall why Castle Park went belly up was the HIGH INSURANCE liability and accidents I have heard happening there.

I think I putted a few at the mianture golf and did do the race track with those cars but not very well but did looooove hanging out at the game room area in the main area of the park.

Yep. It's the new storage building across from Jack in the Box on King / Kalakaua. I don't think this building is open yet, but before they do, they better activate the clock. I shot this at around 8 in the morning and the clock is striking midnight / noon.

http://www.96seven44.com/images/rock_island_cafe_waikiki.jpg

For those unfamiliar, King's Village (http://www.kings-village.com/) is located on the corner of Kaiulani and Koa street, right behind the Hyatt Regency and Spa in Waikiki.

In a recent photo hunt, Tikiyaki had mistaken Teddy's Bigger Burgers (http://www.hawaiithreads.com/showpost.php?p=164133&postcount=97) for this place, which has a similar "American retro" diner/drive-inn theme to it.

This is a really cool place, with a gift shop sporting an amazing display of classic American pop memorabilia, a retro-style restaurant in back and an ice cream parlor (like Farrells!) style stand on the side. Even the waitresses dress the part. Like Happy Days. If you're ever in Waikiki, at least walk in and browse.

The King's Village is an extremely photogenic location on the fringes of Waikiki. The only reason I recognized it right away is that I've spent many hours with a camera there. It's really a great place to take photos.

There's a cool King's Guard demonstration a few times a day; I have been there when they were practicing, and that was fascinating all by itself.

The place I have pictured is on Kalakaua ave.. Hint: It's neighbors with a "celestial" establishment, in front of a building that was formerly a department store from Japan. Gosh, that's a giveaway already! ;)

IIRC, when Keo's first moved here from their location on Kapahulu, one (or two?) of these statues were stolen from right there in front! Crazy. Now they have extra supporting to keep them bolted down.

The display in front of Singha Thai (Chai's Thai restaurant) looks like this (http://www.cc.gatech.edu/~mark.guzdial/hawaii/display/87.jpg).

http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1204/1398706543_838e624612_o.jpg
This is the one across the beach on the Diamond Head end of Kalakaua.

The restaurant chain (http://www.cheeseburgerland.com/Users/ViewCheeseburgerLocations.aspx) in Hawaii is unrelated to the one Jimmy Buffett owns (http://www.cheeseburgerinparadise.com/destinations.asp), which are spread around the eastern part of the US. A lawsuit settlement (http://starbulletin.com/columnist/column.php?id=9780&col_id=51) with Jimmy Buffett allowed them to keep "In Paradise" for 2 of their restaurants, while newer ones are named by their locale, such as the one located at the former Sizzler in Waikiki named "Cheeseburger Waikiki", and others "Cheeseburger Island Style". The signage at their other locations use their corporate logo, sans the whimsical 3-D cheeseburger at the Kalakaua location.

Speaking of 3-D cheeseburger sign, Kua Aina burger also sports a similar sign (http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/specials/bestrestaurants06/photos/kuaaina_b.jpg). The newer Ward location has a really big one.

The kitsch decor and live music at CBiP is pretty cool, but the food's pricey. You walk out about $15 less in your wallet after a burger, fries and drink. Ouch.

I knew it was not affiliated with Jimmy Buffet's chain; that's why I guessed "Cheeseburger Hawaii," thinking that the owners weren't allowed to use the name anymore. Ugh.

I don't think the food's very good at all there. This chili on the chili fries tasted like it was out of a can, and the burger was mediocre (and served in a basket, which I hate). The beer was very, very good.

Okay, here's one that should get identified right away. Where did I eat this:

Let me take a breath before I read you his full name and information, as inscribed on a plaque at the base...


DAVID LAAMEA KAMANAKAPUU MAHINULANI NALOILAEHUOKALANI LUMIALANI KALAKAUA
1836-1891

This statue of King David Kalakaua (1836-1891) was commissioned by the Oahu Kanyaku Imin Centennial Committee on behalf of the Japanese-American community in 1985 in observance of th the arrival of the first ship carrying 944 Kanyaku Imin, or governmental contract immigrants from Japan to Hawaii on February 8, 1885 to work on the sugar plantations.
King Kalakaua visited Japan in May, 1881, on his trip around the world and Appealed to Emperor Meiji to send immigrants to Hawaii to relieve the shortage of laborers on the sugar plantations. This resulted in the signing of the Japan-Hawaii Labor Convention. Japanese numbering 220,000 immigrated to Hawaii from 1885 to 1924 when the Oriental Exclusion Act was enacted by the Congress of the United States.
The Japanese-Americans, who are descendants of these immigrants, have been successful in numerous fields and prospered here in Hawaii. The King is honored as the "Father of Japanese Immigration to Hawaii." This statue is a symbol of appreciation and Aloha to King Kalakaua, a visionary monarch, for inviting their forebears to Hawaii.

Ya, I guess when any one thinks of contaminated water, the Ala Wai comes to mind. I'll have to think of a tuffer one, fer sure.

How 'bout...
Where's this taken?
It is on Oahu and taken this morning.

That looks like the Kaneana Cave up near Ka'ena Point. Too bad. This place is really a stinky ruin these days, beer bottles and camp fire remains all over. Hawaiian legend says that the Ancient Ones emerged from this cave after a former world age came to an end, and re-started the human race. Somebody really ought to be taking care of it.

Yup cause the name of the place its pointing at is not there.
I went there A LOT when I was on the islands.

Now I have the sudden urge for Char Siu and Poi:D

OK, this one may not be totally fair, but for some who like to go to certain beaches for the snorkling, you'll recognize it.

Bonus question - are they coming or going?

Yup, it's the Bay alright, and they're heading for the water. People don't look quite so rested when they're going the other way, after a long day in the sun ! LOL !!

I will admit, though, we have always resisted the temptation to take one of those buses to the top. Can you say, "bus plunge"?

Aloha!
