Yes the Maui Prince does have a Sunday Brunch that is suppose to be excellent. I will be staying at the Prince in September but will be there from Monday -Saturday so I will miss the brunch on Sunday. Hope others respond.
I agree with the previous post, Maui Prince has a great Sunday Champagne Brunch. Highly recommended.
Aloha OSU Beaver,
Think you've received great advice for Sunday Brunch.
At the risk of being "off the wall", I have a nightime idea for you (if you enjoy music).
Most Thursday and Friday nights, the popular (and FANTASTIC) duo of "Hapa" performs at Mulligan's in Wailea. Earlier this year it cost $50 a head and the place was sold-out. If something you want to do, would recommend making reservations as far in advance as possible.
It's a bit of a drive, but the Sunday Brunch at the Hyatt's Swan Court in Kaanapali is something we've enjoyed every year for a long time. Unlike some places, they do not favor registered guests over visitors.
Hope everyone has a great vacation,
Wailea Nights (just named Best Dinner and Show by MauiTime readers) at Mulligan's is a great show, but it is not Hapa. Barry Flanagan, who is half of Hapa, does Wailea nights with Eric Gilliom, who is not from Hapa. Eric is the constant. When Barry is not available due to his other obligations, as happend a lot this year with the recording and promoting Hapa's Maui CD, Uncle Willie K performs with Eric. Either way, the show is treat.
Also performing hule with Eric and Co. is Auntie Genoa Keawe's grandaughter, Maile. She drives all the way down from Kula each Thu and Fri just to dance at Mulligan's.
When Sharon and I went back in late February, we were sure we saw Barry and Nathan Aweau...oops; repeat OOPS!
This is Toooo FUNNY (when you get old, you'll learn the necessity of laughing at yourself).
Anyway, Eric Gilliom did a wonderful job, they performed all of our favorites and we did have a Great time.
Sharon won't be awake for a couple of hours; can't wait to tell her (or should I break the news to her gently?).
But, now I'm really worried; we bought our airline tickets, a week ago, to see "Hapa (?)" in Crystal Bay, Nevada Sept. 16th.
Oh well, by then my feeble memory will have prevailed and we'll have another Great time.
Hope this is somewhat legible; hard to laugh and type at the same time!
In February you might not have even seen Barry. You might have seen Eric with Wille K. Nathan was recording Maui about that time. Was one a bald haole and one a Hawaiian-sized Hawaiian?
"But, now I'm really worried; we bought our airline tickets, a week ago, to see "Hapa (?)" in Crystal Bay, Nevada Sept. 16th."
No worries, it'll be Barry and Nathan that you see in Nevada.
But just to confuse you even more, the "HAPA" that you'll be seeing is not the original "HAPA"! The original "HAPA" was Barry Flanagan and an awesome vocalist by the name of Keli'i Kaneali'i. Nathan was brought in after Keli'i left the duo in 2002. The present "HAPA" (in my opinion!) doesn't even come close to the original. The CD's entitled 'Hapa' and 'In The Name Of Love' are my favorites. "Surf Madness' and 'Namahana' are also good. Their Christmas CD is nice too. These are all with the amazing voice of Mr. Kaneali'i.
Oh well, called Crystal Bay, spoke to the Bartender, and she assured me that they make excellent Lava Flow's; four or five of those puppies and ole Kama isn't going to know the difference betweem Hapa 1,2 or 3 and the Doobie Brothers.
Appreciate all the info Kawahine and Pilikia; if you find your way over to Mulligan's Feb. 23, the drinks are on Wannabe.
