A MUST-SEE: Leahy & Leahy Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. on public TV. Great viewing - a couple of pros who happen to be father and son, Jim and Kanoa. It’s a refreshing and enjoyable half hour ...

Lovely Sonya Mendez, former hard-rockin’ diva of Wave Waikiki and performance coach for Hawaii Stars, is now president of the Rotary Club of Kapolei - talk about a career change! She reports that the club is doing a school supplies drive to benefit underprivileged elementary school children in West Oahu, and urges everyone to drop off your donations of school supplies (everything’s needed: notebooks, binders, rulers, pencils, glue, etc.) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Kapolei High School this Saturday ...

If you haven’t yet stopped by for lunch or drinks, treat yourself to their next wine tasting this Thursday, 5-7 p.m. I know I’ll be there ...
