New Restaurant Open in Hawaii Kai

Therapy SportsGrill, in the Koko Marina Center, is now open. Owned by Daniel Lee, Keoni Chan, and Simon Bitanga, the restaurant will stay open into the "wee hours of the morning" to give residents a choice from Zippy's or fast food.

"We thought it was a good opportunity to add to the variety of great businesses out there," said Chan of Therapy Sportsgrill, located on the marina between Assagio's and Bubbies. "We're trying to fit into the mix and give East Oahu another option."

Therapy offers more than 100 items, including pupus and local favories like fried rice and garlic chicken, and a unique selection of sushi rolls. Portions are generous, as is the fully-stocked bar. They have 20 plasma TVs, pool tables, dartboards, megatouch machines, and Karaoke on Wednesday nights. Future plans will bring outside seating, live local music, and a buffet.

The location favors a tremendous view: its 1,000 square feet of glass covering the entire back of the grill from floor to ceiling, patrons can enjoy a panoramic view from Aina Haina to Kamehame Ridge.

Koko Marina Center, Suite D105
11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Sunday; open on most major holidays

Annual Hawaii Kai Marina Festival of Lights

The 11th annual boat parade, held in rain and wind Saturday, Dec. 15, was again a big success. Music and entertainment at the Hawaii Kai Towne Center kept spectators enthusiastic while waiting for the boats. 40 entries, the largest number since the start of the parade, competed for prizes.
Judging the Boats

Grand Prize went to Tom & Jennifer Hintnaus, for "Captain Hook & Peter Pan." They decorated the boat to look like a replica of a wooden pirate ship, complete with sails and pirates on board.

Judges were Joseph McNamara, Jeanne Branch Johnson, Doug Harris, Kathy Muneno, and Congressman Ed Case.

The Hawaii Kai Marina Community Assn. does a great job and brings a sense of cohesiveness to our marina.
