Kailua Village Business Improvement District (KVBID) is working with Kona eateries to promote the 3rd Annual Kau Kau Kailua Restaurant Week September 16 through 23. To kick off the full week of meal deals, Hawaii-born self-taught singer, songwriter, guitarist Kimie Miner will take the stage for a free concert during Kokua Kailua on Sunday, September 16.
During Kau Kau Kailua Restaurant Week, participating restaurants will offer specially crafted dinner menus priced at $20, $30 or $40 per person. Additional special values will be offered at quick service dining establishments.
Participating restaurants to date (more are being added daily) include Boston Basils; Quinn’s Almost by the Sea; Bongo Ben’s Island Café; Kona Canoe Club; Kona Inn; Lemongrass Bistro; Huggo’s; Huggo’s on the Rocks; Splasher’s Grill; Humpy’s Big Island Alehouse; Mahi’s Beer Batter Fish ‘n Chips; Bubba Gump Shrimp Company; Ocean’s Sports Bar and Grill; Kona Brewing Company; and The Fish Hopper Seafood and Steak Restaurant.
Miner will take the stage at Kokua Kailua on September 16 at 5pm to celebrate the beginning of Kau Kau Kailua Restaurant Week which encourages visitors and locals to experience delicious food at a variety of restaurants in Historic Kailua Village. Kimie (pronounced Kimi-ay) Kauikeolani Miner is best known for her ability to weave acoustic soul, reggae and Hawaiian with a touch of R&B and funk into cool sultry melodies. Her natural, earthy tone fits well with acoustic and Reggae sounds but then surprises listeners with riffs and runs – and that’s where the soul comes in. Her recent single, “Is This Love,” captures her voice in all three genres.
Anheuser Busch Sales of Hawaii, Y. Hata & Co. Ltd., the American Culinary Federation / Kona-Kohala Chefs Association, and West Hawaii Today are partnering with KVBID as supporting sponsors of Kau Kau Kailua Restaurant Week. The event officially begins Sunday, September 16 in conjunction with Kokua Kailua, when Alii Drive becomes a festive pedestrian-only marketplace. To further promote Kau Kau Kailua Restaurant Week, all participating restaurants are invited to join Kokua Kailua on September 16 in a special Food Court at Emma’s Square to build excitement for the coming week’s enticing offerings.
