BRUNCH ON THE BEACH RETURNS IN NOVEMBER                           

            The ever-popular Brunch on the Beach returns to Kalakaua Avenue on Sunday (November 11) with delicious food and outstanding entertainment.

            Kalakaua Avenue will once again be transformed into an outdoor café, with Astroturf, bright blue umbrellas and tables between Kaiulani and Liliuokalani Avenues.  From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., a dozen chefs from Waikiki hotels and restaurants will offer mouth-watering brunch delicacies from appetizers to a wide variety of entrees and desserts at exceptional prices. 

The outdoor dining event will again offer a $25 Coupon Book with $20 of scrips (valid through June 2002), 18 restaurant coupons ($100 value) and extraordinary kama`aina hotel packages.  This month, $5 from each coupon book sale went to the Hawaii Community Foundation/AUW September 11th Relief Fund.  In November, $5 per book will be donated to the Hawaii Food Bank.  Attendees are also encouraged to bring canned goods, rice and other contributions to help feed Hawaii’s less fortunate. 

            In recognition of Veterans’ Day, a patriotic tribute will be presented by the Armed Forces Band “Hana Hou”, the 25th Infantry Division Soldiers and the University of Hawaii ROTC unit.  DisGuyz will perform the National Anthem and their new tribute, “Our Nation in Song”.  The entertainment will also include Hawaiian Paradise, Halau Hula O Na Maka Hulali, and Na Hoku Hanohano award winners, The Brothers Cazimero.

Participating in this month’s brunch will be Sheraton Hotels in Waikiki, Seafood Village, Pacific Beach Hotel, Duke’s Waikiki, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Lobster & Crab House, Sunset Terrace Restaurant & Bar, Keoni by Keo’s, The Hau Tree Lanai, Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort, Skyline Café, and Tea Chest Hawaii.

            Script and Coupon Book sales will begin at 9:30 a.m., and unused scripts will be accepted at future Brunch on the Beach events.

            Brunch attendees can take advantage of special reduced parking rates on November 11.  The Waikiki Trade Center will charge a $1 all-day fee.  Just around the corner, the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel will offer a $2 for four-hour special rate.  A $1 per hour (five-hour maximum) rate will be available at the Ohana Reef Towers, Ohana Waikiki Village Hotel, Outrigger East Hotel, King Kalakaua Plaza, and the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. 

            Brunch on the Beach is held on the second Sunday of each month and is sponsored by the City and County of Honolulu and the Waikiki Improvement Association (WIA).  “The outpouring of aloha and support for local businesses from our residents has been outstanding,” Mayor Jeremy Harris said today as he announced plans for the December Brunch.

“The City, WIA, Waikiki hotels and restaurants have scheduled a ‘Christmas for the Keiki’ Brunch on the Beach on December 16.  To highlight this special presentation, The Society of Seven will perform their favorite musical hits.  Waikiki merchants and the WIA are planning Christmas sales and promotions.  I’d like to encourage our citizens and visitors to come together in Waikiki for this unique Christmas celebration.”
