Kailua Cinemas Good Enough

The movie theaters in Kailua continue its renovation as Kailua Cinemas. Over the years, these theaters have changed names, most recently known as Water Garden that showed older movies at reduced prices. But the phase has begun with Kailua Cinemas featuring luxury reclining seats. While the theater is open for business, the remodeling is still […]

Target Lineup for NES Classic

I can only guess that this lineup outside of Target Kailua is for the NES Classic that releases today. Seemingly limited availability is driving up demand for this nostalgic gaming system. I doubt everyone in line will be happy. This picture was taken at 7:45am. Update: The Kailua Target location had approximately 12 units available […]

Asked to Leave… Again

It’s been a few years since I was asked to leave a store, but it finally happened again. Well, to be clear, I wasn’t directly asked to leave the store, but I could not have my drink in the store, so I took it as an indirect request to leave the store. And I did, […]

The Curb Now in Kailua

Wow, the shakeup of small businesses in Kailua just doesn’t stop. Sadly, Island Yogurt is leaving the Windward neighborhood, but Bee & Tea from Chicago opened their first Hawaii store on the same Hekili Street. Also opening on Hekili is The Curb that’s “keeping it fresh, hot, and cool with intentional coffee.” Now I don’t quite understand […]

Bee & Tea Beckons the Age of Milk Tea in Kailua

So the Age of Froyo is done after a seven-year war. Following froyo is the Age of Milk Tea. Already popular in town, Kailua joins this era with the introduction of Bee & Tea. I won’t go into the store’s background and menu since you can read great coverage here and here. Only open one […]

Island Yogurt Kailua Closing

Went for some froyo today at Island Yogurt in Kailua only to see this sign. While we don’t froyo often, Island Yogurt was our go to spot with a variety of flavors and convenient parking. They’ve been there for several years (well as Orange Tree originally) but the rent just got too high. When the […]

Build Your Body at Volcanic Rock Gym

No, I’m no rock climber and didn’t know abou the Volcanic Rock Gym near Punahou and in Kailua. The smaller Kailua location is all about climbing. Featuring walls of varying heights and angles, this smallish space is maximized with challenges, and the climbers there are maxed out themselves. Every regular that came by was fit […]

Target Kailua Getting Self Serving

Now this is a very welcomed change to the Target location on the Windward side. Check this out. Yes, that is a self checkout station. One of several in fact that’s being installed where the previous express registers were. If you’ve shopped at Target Kailua, you know of the line imbalance. There’s usually one or […]

Changes at Windward Mall

Could it be that I haven’t been to Windward Mall since the holiday shopping season of 2015? Wow, that’s a long time, and in that time, there have been several changes. Let’s take a look shall we? While the food court has been blanketed in free WiFi for some time and Starbucks provides speedy Google […]

Macy’s Kailua Now Up to 50% Off

The closing of Macy’s Kailua continues with items discounted as much as 50% off. But… I don’t know where these items are. Instead, I find mostly regularly priced items with marginal markdowns. A $65 pair of Hurley and Nike shorts at 20% off is still expensive. Nonetheless, the store is gradually emptying out. G Shock […]
