Sears = demolished to ruble.

Liberty House = Macy's

Ha, that looks just like Leonardo's inside, at least in my vague recollection of it. I hope the malasadas aren't the poofy kind like Leonardo's, because then they wouldn't be Hawaii's best malasads. Anyways, that title is jointly held by the Punahou Carnaval Malasada makers and the "Malasada Lady" outside of the Lihue Kmart from around 10 til pau every weekday. Just the right density, just the right chewiness, hot all the way through.

I often see people playing ukelele when on the beach at Waimanalo. Not every weekend but, often enough to notice and enjoy. I'm going to see Concerto for ‘Ukulele at the HSO next month. Definitely a new thing for me. Should be interesting. (Though I find the concert hall acoustics tinny...)

+1 for the Kauai Malasada lady in front of Lihue KMart. That's my gold standard, too.

I was just thinking about the Punahou Carnaval Portuguese bean soup, Ono a mild statement.

I think it is all about family and keeping those connections alive.
Got Spoons? (what's a local portagee jam-session without SPOONS!?!)

Default Old thread, I know...

Old, old thread, but I must add this (maybe somebody already posted this?): The ukuele was probably introduced to Hawaii in 1879 by Portuguese settlers from Madeira who brought with them a small guitar called a braguinha. It is believed that Madeiran cabinet makers Manual Nunes, Jose do Espirito Santo and Augusto Dias were the first makers of the ukuele.
