"The Weekly Dish" March 22, 2013


Aloha Friday, beautiful people! Thanks for turning your dial and/or moving your mouse to keep up with "The Weekly Dish" radio adventures.

Mr. Groovy Shawn Michael and I were well-rested, nourished and ready to rock on this splendid Spring morning at KAOI. We chatted about the crazy world we live in, bickered a bit about GMO bills, and delivered a variety of the isle's community and entertainment news. We even had time to welcome a few creative cats to share on their passions.

Singer/songwriter Ryan Robinson cruised in to share the dealio on tonight's big CD release party at Three's in Kihei. We played some music, talked story, got fired up about cane-burning and laughed about life. Good times!

The Ryan Robinson Band is stoked to present "A Couch to Call Home," an album that a lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone in to. Producer Ola Shaw is the man behind the board on this one, and Ryan is thrilled to welcome back some talented friends from the Mainland to play tonight. Evocative songstress Shea Derrick and the jazzy duo of Amelia Nelson and Toby Couture will commence the evening starting after 9 p.m., and you gotta hear Ryan's band, which includes one of the isle's sweetest and slick bass players, David Wolfberg or just "Wolf." The show is also a benefit for the Boys &, Girls Club of Maui. This is going to be quite the show, and you can feel good after it.  :-)

Chef Maka Kwon of Manoli's Pizza Company and Tri-Star Restaurants served up the dish on all the goodness him and other master chefs, including the incredible Gino Sarmiento, are creating in South Maui and beyond. Maka is one of Hawai'i's finest culinary treasures, and maintains one of the best attitudes and flows in a kitchen that I've ever experienced. He was once a preliminary contestant for "Hell's Kitchen," he's loving father, friend and husband, and from what I hear, is a mentor to many in the kitchen. He's worked with the respected Aaron Placourakis for many years, and is happy to hustle at Manoli's. Go visit Maka and the friendly staff down at Manoli's, just up the hill from the Shops at Wailea. Best Happy Hours in Wailea!

Also, did you know they deliver too? Yep, every day, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Visit www.manolispizzacompany.com for the menu and more details.

Manoli's is raising some dough for Montessori students this Saturday night, March 23. Visit http://www.mauiweekly.com/page/content.detail/id/511046/Tinsel-Town-Nights.html for details.

Journalist Paul Janes-Brown gave his arts and theatre report with style and grace as always, and we relayed the news and views within our favorite community paper, the Maui Weekly.  Visit these articles of interest:


Thanks to our lovable engineer Garry Forsberg, KAOI and the Maui Weekly for all the support, and our small biz 'ohana, especially longtime sponsors such as Kale and Cindy of Stella Blues; Jaron, Cody and Travis of Three's; Megan and Jackie of Wailuku Coffee Company; and Candice of Ambrosia Martini Lounge.

Maui's a really magical place, colored with creative souls and breathtaking surroundings. There are indeed some aspects that can test my nerve, exhaust my spirit and drive me to wonder if I'm cut out to make it here...  All I know is that I love all the things I do, especially in music journalism, and I strive to surround myself with wonderful, drama-free individuals. I try to give back to the community I love. Be kind and patient, maintain good humor and work on cutting back on the madness and "spazness." I've began to not say "Yes" to everything, and manage my time mo' bettah.  ;-)

I'm looking forward to the variety of cool writing projects and music events I have in the mix, catching up with my dear friends and family that I've been neglecting, and perpetuating my love and lust for life.

I'm committed to Maui, which is probably the only aspect of my life I'm completely sure of at this point. Hahaha

I leave you with this quote I came across this week:

"Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.” ― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Anyways, I'm stoked to live and work here, and serve my community. I hope you like the show, or at least listen and laugh--with or at us.  ;-)
