  • Sinatra at the Tip Top Cafe

    Destination: Kauai

    I just learned that Ava Gardner broke up with Frank Sinatra at the Tip Top Café in Lihue, Kauai. With its vinyl booths, Formica tables and cavernous-tall ceilings, you can just imagine Hollywood’s royalty noshing on pancakes—or oxtail soup, another of the restaurant’s famous dishes—and picture Ava, her head tilted, her eyes slit, delivering the news to Frank as a cloud of cigarette smoke hovered in the air above the soon-to-be ex-lovers.

  • Guest Blogger: Malia Yoshioka's Marathon Training Secret

    Destination: Oahu

While I was on Oahu, I also noshed my way through Kapiolani Community College’s Farmers’ Market on a Saturday morning, eating a spiral of sweet potatoes and taro on a stick.

  • Beat the Heat with Vanilla-Infused Arnold Palmer

    glass of vanilla arnold palmer drink

    It’s hot. After a couple relatively cool days and grey skies, thanks to a storm named Amelia that passed south of Hawaii, we’re back to typical summer weather: Sunny and hot. Now, that’s generally not a problem on these tropical islands conveniently situated along a stretch of ocean that enjoys nearly year-round breezes. Just drag a beach chair under a palm tree and let the trade winds make life pleasant. But apparently, Amelia’s sucked up all the wind, because it’s so still that not even the chickens are scratching the lawn for bugs. Hoppy and her latest batch of chicks have retreated under a bush.
