AUGUST 3, 2001


Back by popular demand, Brunch on the Beach returns to Kalakaua Avenue Sunday, August 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. with more food booths, more seating and great entertainment.

Brunch on the Beach debuted last month as the City’s latest event staged to bring more local residents back to Waikiki. Over 5,000 attended the first brunch which was co-sponsored by the City and County of Honolulu and the Waikiki Improvement Association.

To stage the outdoor dining event, the City will close Kalakaua Avenue and lay Astroturf from curb to curb so 330 tables, chairs and bright blue umbrellas can be set-up for the brunch.

More restaurants and hotels are being added to next Sunday’s Brunch on the Beach. In addition to Sheraton Hotels in Waikiki, Duke’s Waikiki, Seafood Village, Hyatt Regency, Pacific Beach Hotel, Antonio’s Steak, Seafood & Pasta, and Hilton Hawaiian Village, the August 12 brunch will include:

§ Davey Jones Ribs featuring Kalua Pig, Cabbage and Rice

§ Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort’s Chef Armin’s famous Macadamia Nut Crusted French Toast and Grilled Opakapaka Toastadas with a choice of toppings

§ Sunset Terrace Restaurant with Grilled Fresh Catch of the Day with Firecracker Shrimp Sauce and Coconut Jasmine Rice and Oriental Chicken Salad.

§ Skyline Cafe serving Iced Coffee, Iced Macadamia Nut Latte, Iced Mocha, and Mango and Strawberry Italian Soda.

Sheraton Hotels will return with its popular celebrity chefs cooking Smoked Salmon Omelets and will introduce for the first time their Island Style Plate Breakfast with Pipikaula, Scrambled Eggs, Local Fried Rice and Span.

Duke’s Waikiki will bring back its popular Grilled Big Island Pork Ribs and Huli Huli Chicken with Macaroni Salad and Rice.

The Manapua Man from Seafood Village at the Hyatt Regency will be there with more manapua, a variety of dim sum, and Stir Fried Noodles with Char Siu.

Italian Hot Dogs, Spiced Steak and Calamari Kabobs, and shave ice will be sold at the Antonio’s at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center booth.

The Pacific Beach will return with Baked Goods and Fruit Salad; the Hyatt Regency with dim sum and pasta; and the Hilton Hawaiian with their fabulous desserts.

Scrip sales will begin at 9:30 a.m., and you may purchase scrips and use them at future Brunch on the Beach dates.

Na Ho`o Keli, Baba Alimoot & Chris Kamaka will stroll among the guests from 9:30 a.m. Halau Na Mamo O Pu`uanahulu, and Na Hoku Hanohano Award Winners Maunalua, Amy Hanaiali`i Gilliom, and The Makaha Sons, Moon, John & Jerome, will entertain throughout the brunch.

Don’t worry about parking. A free tram will shuttle the public from the Waikiki Shell and Zoo parking lots to the brunch site on Kalakaua Avenue, and the Waikiki Trade Center (Seaside Avenue mauka of the Waikiki Twin Theaters) has a $1 for 24 hour special starting at 6:00 a.m.

Brunch on the Beach will be staged on the second Sunday of every month except September and December when there are scheduling conflicts, and in May when the Brunch is scheduled for May 19. The next brunch will be on October 14.
