    Second that. Every time I head to Oahu I find some time to drop in there and grab a glass or two, and sometimes food.

    Works for me ...

    One of my favorite places in Kona is the theatre/cafe place on the way to the City of Refuge. I think it is called the Kona Theatre Cafe. Stop there on your way to "Two Step" for breakfast. Lanai seat with that view over a horse pasture all the way to the ocean, kona coffee and an omelette! Doesn't get any better!

    Smile! It makes people wonder what you've been up to!

    Actually I lived in Japan for 13 years so I've had some pretty good sushi to compare it against and Sushi Bistro Shun is pretty darn good.

    Just read it in the paper. The Crouching Lion will be reopening later this month - new owners. How about driving over on a Saturday?

    You buying?

    Seriously, I had read reviews saying how it had become a mediocre tourist trap, a shadow of what it was. Hopefully it will get back to what people used to say about it.

    Sorry, didn't see this till today!

    don't think I can afford to buy....I doubt right now I could afford to drive there! lol

    Joking aside, we might have to travel that way on Tuesday though, maybe we'll stop by and test for ourselves.

    Drove by there a few weeks ago on a Monday coming back from the North Shore. Three, count 'em, three tour buses parked there, just a few cars. It was the middle of the day, but it is definitely a stop for the buses...............
