T

he War Memorial Convention Hall will be the first stop for comedians Augie T and Rex Navarrete’s statewide tour of the Hawaiian Islands. The tour of laughs is a fundraising effort organized to provide relief for the thousands of people who were displaced by Super Typhoon Haiyan in November. The pair of comedians and their sponsors have their sights set on raising $70,000 and delivering it personally to the Philippines. Augie T. believes the effort has dual purposes that include raising money for those in need and having a fun-filled night of live comedy. “Laughter is healing. The endorphins that spill out when you laugh help you forget about your backache and headache,” Augie T said.

“It’s better than Viagra.” Augie T said he is proud that for 25 years, he’s been known as a clean comic. He said he gets his material for his comedy from everyday life and teasing his family. “If I don’t talk about them in my act they say, ‘Hey, how come you didn’t talk about us?’” he said. The comedian is the oldest of six brothers and loves to tell stories about their father. “He was a mean guy,” said Augie T. “He’s in his late 80s now and has dementia, so I can joke about him and he doesn’t even know it.” With a Filipino, Portuguese and Irish heritage, ethnic jokes are also fair game for the comedian. “That is the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, we can embrace and laugh together at

stereotypes,” he said. “I’m just a local guy that got lucky when I chased a dream and made it come true. I love going on stage and expressing what I am feeling and making the people laugh. Funds raised during the tour will be specifically earmarked to build a new community center in the Philippines. A one-hour television documentary is being filmed during the benefit tour and residual events. The benefit is being sponsored by the Hawaiian Construction Alliance. The “Laugh for Relief” show on Kauai is Friday at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall, 4191 Hardy St. in Lihue. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at Big Kmart, Pono Market and www. augiet.com.

f you’re craving a thick burger with lots of juicy trimmings, stopping by Duane’s Ono Char-Burger in Anahola might take care of that. But if you’re looking forward to some fresh ono — as in fish — maybe go try somewhere else.

A surprising number of hungry people apparently see just the “ono” part of the name and skip right past the “char-burger” part, says owner Leilani Cord, shaking her head. The menu even has a warning; printed at the very top, it clearly states: “This is NOT fish.”

Even so, Cord said, some first-time customers are surprised when they receive a box full of burgers. “They say, ‘But I don’t eat meat!’” she said. “It’s pretty funny.” The workers then have to explain that in Hawaii, “ono” also means

“good, or delicious,” not just a type of fish, Cord said. Leilani and Robert “Rip” Cord bought the burger stand in 1988 from Duane Horka. They’ve run it 26 years to his 10, but the name remains the same — as does most

of the menu and his recipes for the homemade blue cheese dressing and teriyaki sauce. “We’ve added a couple of things because of the times,” Leilani Cord said, such as a veggie burger and an all-vegetarian combo.

BAMBOO GRILL & SUSHI “Local Food at Its Best” Breakfast is served from 7 a.m to noon, lunch is from 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., and dinner is from 5:30-9:30 p.m. Happy Hour is from 3:00-5:30 p.m. They offer free Wi-Fi, and they can also cater any occasion.

But the rest has stood the test of time. “It works,” she said simply. The secret of their success? Consistency. People can trust that when they come back, their favorites will taste just as good. “It’s very consistent,” she said. “Everybody does things the same way.” It helps that their three cooks all have been there about 20 years (one is their son, Joe “Burger” Cord). That consistency — plus an All-American menu of fried goodness with an island flair — is enough to drive demand into long wait times that may surprise some folks who equate burgers with fast food. During the current slow season, food is ready in 10 or 15 minutes. But during summer, the wait can stretch to an hour. And that’s assuming you can find somewhere to park. When it gets that busy, resourceful locals know the trick to getting their food faster: They call in their order — while standing in line, Cord recounted with a laugh. “You have to take care of people in order, but that’s when we take the phone off the hook — when it gets ridiculous,” she said. Business is split evenly between locals and tourists, Cord estimated. Plenty of

visitors stop while driving past on busy Kuhio Highway, and plenty of locals time their travels around mealtimes. “We have a lot of locals who call ahead,” Cord said. “I get a chuckle out of them, because I already know what they want. People get in ruts,” and tend to order the same things over and over. I admit, I was one of those. My first Duane’s burger, probably eight years ago, was the teriyaki ($5.65). It was so good, I never branched out. Consistent, indeed. But Cord was determined to change that. She loaded up a full order for my family recently, and the first item was her personal favorite: a burger topped with teriyaki and blue cheese. Overflowing with rich flavors and dripping juice, it was hard to eat politely. The creamy blue cheese mixed beautifully with the teriyaki for a uniquely delicious burger that instantly became my new favorite. Not that there was anything wrong with the mushroom burger ($6.65). Loaded with what the menu described as “stems and pieces,” it was a substantial and satisfying meal. Thankfully, the hefty burgers are cut in half and wrapped in paper, which makes them perfect for sharing. But get

plenty of napkins. The French fries are salty, crunchy delicious, the onion rings huge and deeply fried. Both earned rave reviews from my kids, who also devoured corn dogs ($3.50) and a keiki meal of chicken strips atop a generous pile of fries ($5.50). Cord also made sure we got special side orders of terimayo, which just might be the perfect condiment. Seating at Duane’s is all outside, at cement tables under wide umbrellas, where you can watch the traffic curve up the hill. You may have the company of a friendly cat, and you’ll almost certainly have to navigate a roaming flock of wild chickens or chase off the occasional rooster. But back to those folks who are startled when their order arrives, full of hamburgers. What happens to them? “Well, sometimes we give ‘em a fish sandwich,” Cord said, still chuckling. It’s not fresh — it’s battered — but it’s ono!” Well, so is everything else we tasted — in the other meaning of the word. Duane’s Ono Char-Burger is at 4-4350 Kuhio Highway, Anahola, and can be reached at 822-9181. It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

uch of the menu at Duane’s Ono Char-Burger falls in that irresistible category that might charitably be described as “drive-in comfort food.” So, alongside a massive order of heavily loaded cheeseburgers and deep-fried treats, all served with deliciously creamy condiments, a smoothie seemed like a really smart idea. Not that the Aloha Special isn’t substantial in its own right. This sweet concoction was solid with fruit and flavor. The Aloha Special is made from papaya and bananas. That fruity base is frozen in a cup, then blended with pineapple juice and crushed ice. The smoothie is very popular, and even has its own fan club base, said Duane’s Ono Char-Burger owner Leilani Cord. “There are certain people who stop by just for that,” she said. They’ll even call ahead to order it, telling the workers how far they have to drive, so they won’t have to wait any longer than necessary.

I took my Aloha Special to nearby Anahola Beach Park to fully enjoy it. Gently lapping waves were the perfect backdrop as I sat on the soft sand to savor the cool blend of fruits and juice. And I didn’t feel nearly so guilty for relishing the rest of my meal so ravenously. The Aloha Special is available in two sizes: 16-ounce small for $3.75, and a 24-ounce large for $4.25.

W

ith Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah” and Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” preparing to duke it out for Old Testament auteur supremacy, Hollywood’s religious renaissance gets off to a none-too-spectacular start with a chewed-over New Testament appetizer called “Son of God.” A clumsily edited feature-length version of five episodes from History’s hugely popular 10-hour miniseries “The Bible,” this stiff, earnest production plays like a half-hearted throwback to the British-accented biblical dramas of yesteryear, its small-screen genesis all too apparent in its Swiss-cheese construction and subpar production values. Yet while Jesus’ teachings have been reduced to a muddle of kindly gestures and mangled Scriptures, the scenes of his betrayal, death and resurrection crucially retain their emotional and dramatic power, which the charitable viewer may deem atonement enough for what feels, in all other respects, like a cynical cash grab. As the first quasi-big screen account of the life of Jesus in the decade since Mel Gibson’s far more contentious

REVIEW ASSOCIATED PRESS JUSTIN CHANG

“The Passion of the Christ,” “Son of God” should capitalize sufficiently on church-based word of mouth to intrigue if not galvanize Christian moviegoers. Although some scholars have taken issue with the series’ deviations from the Bible, the film arrives in theaters bearing pre-packaged endorsements by such prominent spiritual leaders as Rick Warren, T.D. Jakes and Sam Rodriguez — some of whom served as advisers to the TV project spearheaded by husbandand-wife exec producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (who retain their producing credits here, as does cowriter Richard Bedser). “In the beginning was the Word,” the gospel writer John (Sebastian Knapp) intones early on, his revelation in the miniseries having been repurposed as a framing device here. From there the film plunges into a clumsy Old Testament highlights reel, a marketing tie-in for “The Bible” that gives viewers just enough time to wave to Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham and some god-awful CGI before depositing them at the scene of the Christ child’s birth.

Gone are the formative elements of Jesus’ upbringing and his temptation in the wilderness, reportedly due to complaints that Satan (as played in the miniseries by actor Mehdi Ouazzani) bore a suspicious resemblance to President Obama. The story proper begins as Jesus (handsome, sleepy-eyed Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado) calls forth his disciples at the Sea of Galilee and begins his compassionate ministry of teaching, healing and prayer. And so, in fairly rapid succession, Jesus restores a paralytic, feeds the 5,000, and walks on water in a stormy

sequence that suggests a relic from the Cecil B. DeMille era. In this abbreviated, arbitrary approach to biblical interpretation, the greatest story ever told becomes a checklist of miracles, and Jesus’ words and deeds, far from carrying the shock of radical epiphany, feel obvious and preordained. Time, or at least running time, is clearly of the essence: Miracles and lessons are expediently juxtaposed, and the Sermon on the Mount plays more like the Sermon on the Montage. Although he occasionally pauses to speak in parables, this Jesus is not above getting right to the point for

the benefit of a busy 21st-century audience. Elsewhere, schlock aesthetics prevail: When the sneering Pharisees attempt — and fail — to condemn a woman caught in the act of adultery, their stones fall to the ground in slow-motion, each one landing with a Dolby-amplified thud. While we are clearly a long way from the raw austerity of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s masterpiece “The Gospel According to St. Matthew,” or the rigorous integrity of Philip Saville’s word-for-word 2003 adaptation of “The Gospel of John,” a cinematic adaptation of Scripture nonetheless demands style, poetry, vision or, barring that, a point of view — none of which seems to have been part of the assignment handed to directors Christopher Spencer (who helmed the three episodes from which the pic is chiefly drawn), Tony Mitchell and Crispin Reece. “Son of God,” a 20th Century Fox release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “intense and bloody depiction of The Crucifixion, and for some sequences of violence.”

The book features prints from the days of film and captures moments on Kauai over a period of more than 24 years. Hanft will be just one of the features Saturday when The Shops at Kukuiula feature its free Art Walk at Kukuiula. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I draw, paint and work with clay by hand and on the potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wheel,â&#x20AC;? said Roberta Griffith of the shop the Sandbox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, I create art using

printmaking, and working with hot glass. I combine materials into mixed-media installations to tell stories.â&#x20AC;? The installation 2013, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stuck in the Sand,â&#x20AC;? by Griffith is one of the pieces at galerie 103, which will feature an artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reception for its new exhibit titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;PRINT, Paper + Sandbox.â&#x20AC;? The sandbox, coming from an exhibit in the Honolulu Museum of Art in Artists of Hawaii, is a play on words of the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stuck in the Mud.â&#x20AC;?

or her perspective and level of understanding,â&#x20AC;? Griffith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many images, objects, and installations I create relate to play via toys, doll body parts, dolls and baseballs which encompass various layers of meaning for different people.â&#x20AC;? Griffith also joins other artists including H.C. Westermann, Jean Cocteau, William T. Wiley, Ivan Lackovic, Tom Lieber, Kathleen Afair Brown, Sally French, Wayne Zebzda, and galerie 103â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Bruna Stude at the exhibit which challenges conventional limits and technique. Adding to the excitement of the walk, plain air artist Jim Ingham will be doing live painting at the Red Koi, where his works are being shown. Jenifer Prince, an awardwinning plein air artist, will be doing a live painting at Halelea, all punctuated with the outdoor jazz by Hank Curtis and Steve Dubey, and Latin rhythms by Manuel Mendes and Cary Valentine.
