    Re: Disappearing establishments

    A few months back I wrote about the new Manalani's Restaurant in Kahaluu, just past the Hygenic Store and the Sunshine Art Gallery headed north on Kam Highway. Supposedly awesome plate lunches, and the owners even jumped in and posted here on HT a couple of times.
    Well, I've been meaning to post that it's been closed for a few months already. Realtors sign out in front, and looking through the chain-link fence you can see that nothing has been touched there for a long time.
    Bummer. I never even had a chance to try it.

    Bingo! Not the hard copy.

    I never noticed this thread was in Kaukau Korner, Helen. Thanks for the heads up. I know I've seen other posts about disappearing businesses other than restaurants. The thread, "Disappearing businesses", that you link to was started a couple of weeks ago. Where might I have seen non-food related closures over the past few years?

I didn't notice a date. I did a quick Google search and didn't find any articles. Dayam...the Apple Store and Video Life have kept this Untechie Tutu from drowning in technology. I needed Video Life today. WAAAAAAH!!! I wonder if they just couldn't compete with the web.

    That's just wayyyyy to bad. JD was such a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki for a nice romantic dinner on the ocean. It was truly one of a kind. Here's a shot of the Gas Company's 100th anniversary at JD with Perry and Price at their Saturday Morning show.

    After a couple of shifts in owners, the Hungry Lion fell behind on its rent and served its last meal on Tues., after 27 years in business.

    AFAIAC, good riddance to them! Buffet 100 started off great, but went downhill after a couple of years. Lots of cost-cutting measures were implemented. There was more ice than cream in the ice cream dispenser the last time I went. And I swear the crab legs they served on their seafood night was soaked in a super spicy sauce in order to discourage people from eating more than a handful.

    Also, counting each of the desert toppings as part of the 100 item menu? Cheap, cheap, cheap!!!

    What a bummer. We escaped to John Dominis for a private wedding-day dinner after our big reception a few years back. I'll always have good memories of a great meal there capping our wonderful day. (She: 14 oz (!) lobster tail. Me: filet coins and moi. Yum.) We have a nice photo from that night we bought from their roving photographer sitting in our hallway.
