    StarBulletin reports today: "Kakaako's waterfront will have a new look on Sept. 1 with the opening of a $16 million Mediterranean-style wedding venue marketed to Japanese couples on the site of the former John Dominis restaurant."
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    Sounds like sellout garbage, of no use to any Oahu resident, makes Anderson's silly fairgrounds seem positively brilliant.

    And people wonder why the community of Haleiwa is protesting Anderson's purchase of the land in Haleiwa???????????? Because we don't want him to turn it into another John Dominis Playground for the rich.........

    And the Pulse section of ThePaper announces that Downtown in the Hawaii State Art Museum can't make a deal on a lease and will close mid-September. A real loss . . .

    No different from a restaurant I never visited. I hope it leads to mucho dinero in the tax coffers. I do enjoy seeing Japanese brides all decked out... where are those lawn chairs?

    Yet another Subway sandwich shop. Just what we needed.

    From today's Star-Advertiser, Chai's Island Bistro is closing on December 31, after almost 15 years at Aloha Tower.
    Chai says his lease expires then and he's concerned about what the future is bringing to Aloha Tower, especially with HPU's offer to take it over and turn most of it into a dormitory. ( )
    Chai is goint to re-open in a new location next year, but he wouldn't say where.
    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    Never had the opportunity to eat there, but I'm sorry to see another popular venue for local entertainers close its doors.

    It says in the second graf:

    Chaowasaree is opening a new restaurant in the Honolulu Pacifica Building in February 2013. So the headline is misleading - the restaurant is moving, not closing.

    Well, Chai's Island Bistro is closing, and the new restaurant will be named "Chef Chai's at Pacifica", so... [/shrug]

    OH NO!
    SA reports: "Byron's Drive-In near Honolulu Airport, the last of a group of family-run restaurants serving Hawaii for generations, will close at the end of February." "The restaurant's parent company, Pacific Food Services Inc., was informed that the landowner's plans will involve the demolition of the eatery, which opened in the mid-1960s."
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    Did the Burger King in Kalihi (next to Popeye's Chicken) close?? Every time I have been by there of late it doesn't seem to be open at night.

    Yes. Does anyone know if it is closed for good, being renovated or I just happen to go by there at an unusual hour??

    KFC across from Ala Moana will be razed (to make room for a new two-story Walgreens). I think this KFC, which has been rebuilt and renovated over the years has been at that location since at least the mid 1970s.
