Aloha and Mahalo to Tatianah Ayva Poyer Esteban and her family for sharing her smile with us for our keiki cover this month.

Mom shared with us, “Tatianah is very funny, witty and independent. She loves going to school and spending time with her cousins and especially her little brother Malachi. She inspires me and my husband to work hard and be our best!”

nick’s fishmarket celebrates 20 years! saturday, august 25 fundraiser for kihei charter schools

It’s a well-known truth that restaurants are a tough business- 60% do not make it past the first year and 80% go under in five. However, those odds vanish when a restaurant is led by Aaron Placourakis, an experienced and hands-on owner whose shared values are rooted in outstanding service, exceptional food, a welcoming environment and a strong connection to the community.

Nick’s Fishmarket Maui celebrates its 20th anniversary this month. True to its values, the restaurant is having a special event on Saturday, August 25 that is doubling as a fundraiser for the grand opening of Kihei Charter School’s new campus. Open to the public, guests will indulge in delicious food, action stations, champagne and wine bar, specialty cocktails and entertainment.

ka’anapali offers maui’s only footgolf course daily after 4pm

Ka‘anapali Golf Courses is the only facility across the island of Maui to offer a FootGolf Course for residents and visitors alike. Nine and 18 holes of FootGolf is available at Ka‘anapali after 4pm seven days a week starting at $15 to walk and an additional $15 to ride a shared golf cart. Players can bring their own soccer balls or rent one for just $5 per round. Ka‘anapali Golf Courses joined several other Billy Casper Golf-managed courses across America to launch the program in 2015 and it has quickly become a popular afternoon activity for all ages and skill levels. Ka‘anapali hosts an annual fall FootGolf League, along with occasional weddings, reunions, birthday parties and other events on the FootGolf course.

“We love to be able to offer our guests the FootGolf experience at Ka‘anapali – this sport has quickly become a new way for families and non-golfers to experience the golf facility,” stated PGA Director of Golf, Sutee Nitakorn. “We also work with the resort’s hotel sales staff and their corporate meeting planners to offer a great non-golf activity that all of their attendees can participate in. FootGolf is a fun team-building activity and we’ve seen some really unique events here at Ka‘anapali as a result,” Nitakorn added.
