Kapalua's New Chef Dishes Up Oktoberfest Splendor

Isaac Bancaco arrives at Pineapple Grill from refined tutelage to helm this Maui "local's favorite" eatery

The changing-of-the-guard, or chef, at a “locals favorite" restaurant is heralded as a significant event here in Hawai‘i. So it became noteworthy when Maui’s Pineapple Grill, at Kapalua, bid farewell to Ryan Luckey—who garnered numerous regional awards for this impressive, off-the-beaten-fairway eatery—and ushered in another “local boy gone big.” Isaac Bancaco has cooked on the front lines for...

Tap the Rock: Brewfest Endures, Tsunami or Otherwise

This March 70 Brewers Descend onto the Big Island

It’s that magical time of year again: When the Big Island lava surges (with gusto, we might add), the winds come sweeping down from the Holualoa coffee belt... and a sumptuous variety of ale flows effortlessly from hundreds of taps at the Kona Brewers Festival.

Well, the wait is over. Almost.
Chef Merriman just announced the second outpost of Monkeypod will reside on the azure shores of West O‘ahu, at the Ko‘Olina Resort, mid-2012.

Pro Bowl Block Party Kicks Off in Waikiki

We are thrilled to promote the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl—which has made its just return to Hawaii (after a horrendous decision by both the NFL and the former authorities-of-note here in Honolulu).

Brews and Grinds: Fine Fare Sync with Suds

We're a sucker for a good wine dinner: The eloquent musings of a celebrated chef, extrapolating the nuances (or how he perceives them) from a flight of wines and crafting a menu around a notion. However, it isn't every day that you hear about a beer tasting. Mark your calendars for 6:00 p.m.
