Last night we enjoyed yet another amazing First Friday event to kick off the month of June! Meeting up with some of our dearest friends, we spent the first part of the evening at center stage, directly in front of the Maui Thing store where my son Conner, his best friend Ryan and their high school music teacher Jon performed some wonderful music for all to enjoy. We are so proud of them and had a blast listening to them play before enjoying a delicious meal at Cafe O Lei to end the night...looks like June is going to be another fun month here in Maui!
For all the local beer connoiseurs out there, you won't wanna miss the exciting event taking place this Saturday, May 15th at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. Hosted by the MACC and our own Maui Brewing Company, this will certainly be a day of relaxation and indulgence favored by residents and visitors alike.
