Kauai Sings brings joy to holiday season DARIN MORIKI TGIFR!DAY

T

he holiday season is here and Kauai Sings will be spreading Yultide cheer on Saturday during the Kauai Sings Christmas program to benefit Malama Pono Health Services. The seventh annual performance, the second-biggest fundraiser of the year for Malama Pono and the largest one for Kauai Sings, will be held at 7 p.m. at the Kilohana Luau Pavilion. “It’s a really easy way to come together and make a difference,” Malama Pono’s Executive Director Michael Sorensen said. “While the event is about enjoying the holiday season, it also gives us an opportunity to find out who in the community cares about positive sexual health, HIV and AIDS, because they can be very difficult issues to talk about.” This year’s musical line up will include holiday classics that comple-

ment the theme, “Christmas from the Heart.” “We really just want it to include crowd-pleasing songs that people can sing along with, if they want to,” said Jason Blake, a former Malama Pono Health Services board member and the founder of Kauai Sings.

Blake, who spearheaded efforts to create the first Kauai Sings Christmas program in 2006, said the fundraiser for Malama Pono is just as important as it was seven years ago, when he and other board members were struggling to fund the nonprofit programs amid

declining health care funding from state and federal agencies. A total of $7,600 was raised from last year’s Kauai Sings Christmas program. This year’s fundraising goal is nearly double that amount at $15,000. Food on Saturday will be catered

through Bobby V’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant in Kapaa. Tickets can be purchased at the event for $30 or $25 in advance. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Malama Pono Health Services http://malama-pono.org/kauai-sings or call 246-9577.

e get to be the local Italian restaurant,” said Kristen Valenti, Bobby Valenti’s (Bobby V’s) wife. Both owners were born in Massachusetts and have Italian descent. However, they met on Kauai and came to share their lives and love for Italian food. The Valenti family opened their restaurant in 2009. The atmosphere of Bobby V’s is casual, family oriented and comfortable. The dynamic between staff and owner was more like that of family members than of a staff-boss relationship. The restaurant, 4-788 Kuhio Highway in Kapaa, occupies what used to be a plantation house. You can’t tell from the road, but behind the restaurant there is a lovely, decorated garden with tables and umbrellas for customers to enjoy their food outdoors. Christmas lights surround the entire place, giving it a festive look. The pizza I had was the Mediterranean: pesto sauce topped with mozzarella, kalamata olives, capers, sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese ($27.99, 15 inches).

I must say that I have not had a better pizza in a long time. The pesto was phenomenal and the thin crust made all the difference. Their pizzas are homemade with their own pesto and sauces. They serve only authentic Italian thin crust pizza. Even my cold leftovers tasted great the next day. True to their family spirit, the Valentis take care of their ohana. Their cooks have been with them since they opened, and most of their servers as well. “One of my servers was the very person that trained me 18 years ago on my first job on Kauai, and now she works for me,” Kristen said. In an attempt to serve their community, the family offers a

10 percent kamaaina discount for locals. Bobby V’s owners also try to stay local with the produce they use. Besides pizzas, the restaurant offers salads, appetizers, pastas, entrees (spinach manicotti, eggplant parmigiana, etc.), sandwiches and calzones. Nonalcoholic drinks are available (sodas, water, coffee, etc.). If you want to bring your own alcoholic beverages, they will provide the glasses and openers if needed. Keiki meals for children under 12 are available. If you are looking to celebrate your little one’s event, the restaurant organizes custom kids” parties where the children can make their own pizzas. On Tuesdays you can enjoy

“Pasta Family Style” with spaghetti and meatballs (small bowl feeds three, $16.99; large bowl feeds six, $29.99). Wednesdays are all you can eat days, serving penne marinara for $8.99. The restaurant is open daily from 3 to 9 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 3 to 10 p.m. Friday. They also deliver. “The best way to someone’s heart is through their stomach,” says the restaurant slogan. Love and passion for Italian food and heritage and sharing traditional home-cooked meals with family and friends is their vision. “Lovely people and great food on beautiful Kauai,” server Michelle Domincil said, describing the restaurant.

leeping dragons, as we know from our childhood literature, eventually awaken. If they didn’t, there wouldn’t be a story. So it’s hardly news that in the second installment of Peter Jackson’s “Hobbit” trilogy, the dragon rouses from his slumber. What IS news: the franchise wakes up, too. Die-hard fans might disagree, but to many, the first film, last year’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” took way too long to get going and then dragged for much of its 169 minutes. “I do believe the worst is behind us,” noted Bilbo Baggins at the end of that film, to which some of us wanted to reply: “Well, we hope so.” “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is not much shorter — 8 minutes, to be exact — but it feels brisker, lighter, funnier. The characters are more varied, more interesting; We’ll take a comic turn by the entertaining Stephen Fry over another Orc any day. There’s even an added romantic subplot. The whole enterprise, it must be said, involves a huge dollop of cinematic hubris. J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit,” after all, is a book of some 300 pages. With these three films, a prequel to his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Jackson devotes about two film minutes to each page. Imagine if they did that with Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” The movie would have been 40 hours long. On the other hand, the first “Hobbit” installment brought in some $1 billion. So it’s rather beside the point to argue with Jackson’s approach. Happily, “Smaug” is vastly better from the get-go. Instead of a drawn-out intro, we get right to the action, which is of course the quest of Bilbo (Martin Freeman, himself livelier

and funnier) and the band of dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (a suitably noble Richard Armitage) to reclaim the kingdom of Erebor, under the Lonely Mountain, from the frightening dragon Smaug. As always, trouble takes many forms: not only the menacing Orcs, but giant spiders with sticky webs, too. Then there are the elves, who come to the rescue at an opportune time but then imprison Bilbo and his mates. (Gandalf — the always grand Ian McKellen — has other business, and leaves for long stretches.) Lee Pace is fun as the campy and authoritarian Thranduil, leader of the elves. His son Legolas (Orlando Bloom, back from “The Lord of the Rings”) is talented as ever with a bow. And he has a love interest: Tauriel, a newly invented character, played with spunky sweetness by Evangeline Lilly. Tauriel, it turns out, has a soft spot for the dwarf Kili, a rather hunky Aidan Turner. (“He’s quite tall for a dwarf,” she says. “But no less ugly,” retorts Legolas.) Bilbo, ever bolder, helps the dwarves escape their jailers in a terrific scene — involving barrels, river rapids, and an endless supply of Orcs — that rivals a Busby Berkeley dance number. (Side note: These dwarves are awfully durable.) Further entertainment comes in Lake-town, led by a greedy Master (the engaging Fry) and his underling Alfrid (Ryan Gage, also fun). It should be noted that Jackson has again shot his film at 48-frames-per-second, double the standard speed, to make things look sharper. But this time, the fanfare is gone; critics were not even shown the film at the faster speed. Jackson clearly doesn’t want the technique to dominate the discussion.

A Kauai Christmas Hula Concert TOM LAVENTURE TGIFR!DAY

C

elebrate the traditional and Hawaiian Christmas with music and dance performances. “A Kauai Christmas Hula Concert” is being presented by kumu hula Leilani Rivera Low and Halau Hula o Leilani from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday at Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall in Lihue. The annual Christmas show is approaching its 12th year featuring the blend of multiple cultures with faith works, Low said, because “God is the creator of all.” Low said everyone is invited to attend the family Christmas show that is both cultural and spiritual. The event is about sharing the joy of Christ’s birth and receiving Jesus

into the world. The songs also celebrate the beauty of Kauai. The distractions today prevent us from pausing to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us, she said. Leilani Low is also a recording artist who presents traditional and modern Hawaiian Christmas music. Her haumana of about 60 dancers will perform cultural variations on the Christmas theme from keiki to adult. The dancers held a number of workshops with Valetta Jeremiah, who worked for many years at the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu. For the past three years she has been coming to teach the halau Maori songs. “We wanted to include the Maori songs to reinforce the ties to our New Zealand cousins,” Stewart said. “The dancers also

do Tahitian dances in different styles and costumes that were partly made by the dancers and their parents, and it’s a blend of tea leaf skirts with Rudolph antlers.” The dancers have worked with Low since they were children and some have been with the halau for 30 years. The youngest seem disorganized in class but once they are in costume and on stage they are like little angels, Stewart said. The “back stage moms” frantically help the girls change between performances. The Christmas show is a good way to get the beginners valuable experience with fun songs and dances to learn what it’s like to be in a live stage show. “We all have a good time dancing in it and want our families and friends to all be there to show how we celebrate

Christmas in Hawaii,” Stewart said. “The parents work hard in getting the costumes together and getting things organized, and all the parents that have been there before help the others.” Stewart said the idea began over a decade ago when the Rivera, Low and Bond families produced Kauai Christmas music CD. The concerts helped take the traditional songs performed in the island way, and the original Christmas songs written by Hawaiians and putting them to dance. The youngest kids start out by singing the pigeon version of “The 12 Days Of Christmas” and begin learning hula to these songs. The older kids sing “Little Drummer Boy” and “Jingle Bells” in Hawaiian. The program moves along

with a varied tempo with musicians including 10 Tahitian drummers to accompany the Tahitian dancers that are choreographed by Low’s daughter, Ariel Bond. Guest musicians Kapala and Michael Ruff perform the beautiful music of the season with Low. Ruff is a composer and producer of Hawaiian artists and will perform his own spiritual music. Kapala is a Hawaiian contemporary group that will mix traditional and modern styles. Island music legend Larry Rivera, 84, will perform his annual holiday standards, “O’ Holy Night,” and “Menehune Santa” that he wrote several years ago. Leilani Low, Rivera’s daughter, is also a recording artist and closes the show with her popular local Christmas song,

“A Kauai Christmas.” The concert is a fundraiser to benefit halau’s nonprofit booster club. Make a donation for a chance to win a ukulele from Larry’s Music and the Ukulele Store. The lobby opens at 5 p.m. with vendors offering food, jewelry, clothing, accessories and other Hawaiian gifts. Tickets are $20 (adults) and $15 (keiki). Advance tickets are $15 and $10, and available at Hawaiian Music Stores in the Coconut Marketplace and Princeville Shopping Center; Hawaiian Cultural Center in Coconut Marketplace; Larry’s Music; the Ukulele Store in Koloa; Hilo Hattie, Pono Market and Island Soap & Candle in Old Koloa Town. Call Darryl Low for $30 front section reserved seats at 651-0864 or email darryl. leilani@hawaiiantel.net.

oothpicks are the key to building a sturdy gingerbread house, said Ron Margolis. Margolis was soliciting guesses on how many candy canes were in a jar while watching families construct gingerbread houses at the 14th annual Easter Seals Gingerbread Family Festival at the Kukui Grove Center on Saturday. Liz Ann Vidinha of the Easter Seals, Kauai Branch, said they had orders for 300 gingerbread house kits, an increase over last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 250 kits. Builders had the option of building their homes at Kukui Grove where a blanket of entertainment spiced up the construction process, or having the kits to-go for preparation elsewhere. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kits included two houses, icing, candies and a gingerbread man. Mary Lardizabal, director of the Kapaa Middle School Chorus and Ukulele Band, said Easter Seals helped her family. Info: www.easterseals.com/hawaii/
