Picks of the Week
Friday-Saturday (September 27-28), 9pm at Charley's, 142 Hana Hwy., PaiaAugust 25, 2010 | 03:12 PMby Jacob ShaferWhen you hear that a Nelson is set to play Charley's, we know whose grizzled, twinkling visage you conjure up. Not so fast; we're talking about the younger Nelson, 21-year-old Lukas. Raised on the road in Willie's famed Honeysuckle Rose bus, Lukas inherited his father's gift. But he's also

Picks of the Week
Some choice spots to tip back a cup o' kindness…This is my third week back at writing Picks, and WTF? It's New Year's! When I was whisked away to play in Cancer Land, I had hardly finished my trick-or-treating. Turns out, Mulligan's on the Blue (874-1131) is as trapped in October as I am. For their New Year's party, they're featuring their All Hallows Eve music line-up (Kulture Klash 808, Fish Tank and Off Tomorrow) and they're hosting a costume party. There'll be $500 in prizes (put those creative juices to work, they're seeking creatively themed threads), and whether you opt for the dinner package with complimentary champagne toast ($60, call for reservations) or for the gigs alone ($10 advance/$15 door), you score a killer view of the Wailea aerials. On the topic of tenuous timelines, you know who else had their calendars all screwy? Everyone, from 47 BC until 1582. It wasn't until the end of the 16th century—and the centuries following Pope Gregory XIII's reformation of the Julian calendar—that many world countries adopted the Gregorian version and began to embrace January 1 as the day that "we'll take a right guid-willie waught, for auld lang syne." Uh, OK. Whatever that means. Oh c'mon. Nobody really knows the lyrics to that song we pretend to sing but once a year. Besides, you ought to be too busy smooching... or drinking… or at the very least, blowing those annoying paper noisemakers that fall limp with too much drunken spit. If you want some Willie songs (of the "Georgia On My Mind" variety) that you can really sing along to, I'll remind you of last week's Pick to check out Charley's ($75, 579-8085). Also last week, I encouraged every Bad Santa to head over to Casanova (572-0220) for the Kit Kat Club's Christmas Cabaret. Whether avoiding Claus's naughty list or your girlfriend's s#%t list, I'm guessing a few of you might have stayed home. But New Year's is a holiday of second chances, and the Kit Cat Club cuties are giving you just that with their New Year's Eve Party—replete with bubbly and a soiree of DJs, gogo dancers and sideshow acts hot enough to light fireworks. What else should be hot? Your fingers—lighting up the phone to call Timba ($25, 661-9873) and secure your New Year's Eve reservations. The Hard Rock Café (667-7400) will feature DJ Chuck for just $7—with a portion of the proceeds going to World Hunger—and they too boast a gratis toast. And if you need as many options as Tiger's got mistresses, Next Level takes over the Kahului Ale House while All Access Entertainment is busy putting on the party at Diamonds Ice Bar (874-9299), Oceans Bar & Grill (891-2414), and Lulu's Lahaina (661-0808).

Take FiveSoy Russian, Café Marc Aurel, Wailuku
I have rejected guys for not getting The Big Lebowski. I mean, how much time could I really spend with someone who has no clue that one-third of what I say is a Big Lebowski quote? Yet while the flick wanders around the folds of my brain in a bathrobe and jelly shoes it’s rare that I can partake in one of the film’s major elements: the White Russian.

Food & Drink
Charley's ups the ante, yet still retains a saloon-like ambianceMany years ago, I had a real estate license and a little office at Steven’s Realty in Paia upstairs in the building next to where Jacques is today.
