Sept 10 Update: Adding to the rumor mill is the last minute cancellation of the Summer Concert Series featuring Marty Dread at Rock N Brews, which was supposed to occur tonight. I guess the live-music wars in Paia are not over, folks!
And – Check out a Trunk Show on Friday (September 12) with Art by Angelina Hills and Joya by Sarina! Takes place 6-9pm at the Paia Inn Hotel (click image to view larger)
Original Post: With the departure of Tortillas leaving a gap in the ‘take-out’ category of Paia restaurants, Thai Spice quickly filled the void, pleasing everyone with the frequent craving of Pad Thai and Chicken Satay.
Thai Spice is open from 10am – 8pm daily and is located next to the Wine Corner (take-out and a liquor store in one parking lot???? BONUS!) Phone number is 579-8269 and here is their menu attached: (click to view larger)
Hana Bay Picnic Lunch moved in with its sister business, Paia Gelato, leaving a void in Paia, which was of course quickly filled by Prospect, I can’t find out much information about this yet, except that it’s based out of Park City Utah.
Anyone who is (or even may be) getting married soon should make plans to attend the Tamara Catz Bridal Sale. And if you aren’t about to head down the aisle any time soon, you will probably want to head over their soon to check out their recently released Fall collection. The pieces I’ve seen so far are so awesome they might just get their own post!
A lot of people were disappointed to hear that Paia Bay Coffee closed down, but their disappointment was short lived, as they quickly reopened behind San Lorenzo. I was only able to quickly poke my head back there, but its an awesome space and only on day 1 or 2 of boing open was pretty full! Their regulars are a faithful bunch! Can’t wait to try it myself. Entrance is either through the garage behind Prospect (near the gas station side) – or San Lorenzo when its open.
Pakaloha lovers will be thrilled to know that they can now get their bikini fix again in Paia – in the former Oceania Maui space, between Rock N Brews and Milagros.
Speaking of Rock N Brews, there are two more chances to see Marty Dread at their Summer Concert Series – TOMORROW – Wednesday, September 10 and September 24th! Better get there early, heard it was pretty packed in August.
Lots of changes for Dazoo – they are now open on Saturday AND Sunday for brunch (for everyone that missed their breakfast foods!) starting at 9am, and TODAY they are unveiling their new Fall menu – with more traditional entrees being offered, but if you were a fan of their mix and match small plates, there are still lots of options of those as well! Fans of the bibimbap will be happy to know that its now being served at dinner!
Paia has also been featured in the actual news a bit recently –
On September 2, Mike White ( Maui County Council rep for Paia, Haiku and Makawao) shared this on his Facebook page – “A big moment for the County – just moments ago, the Budget and Finance Committee approved the acquisition of approximately 4 acres in Maui Business Park II in Kahului for a new service center from A&B, which also comes with a 35.55 acre donation of land extending from Baldwin Beach Park towards Paia Town!”
And tomorrow (Wednesday, September 10) , the groundbreaking ceremony for Heritage Hall is scheduled to take place at 2:30 p.m. Heritage Hall is the multi-purpose community complex that honors the history and culture of Portuguese and Puerto Rican immigrants to Maui.
The facility consists of two separate buildings that will house the cultural resource centers on the second floor. The ground floors will be offered for lease to two nonprofit organizations serving the Paia area.
“Heritage Hall fulfills the long-standing dreams of both the Portuguese and Puerto Ricans to have a place where their respective histories and cultures can be shared with the general populace,” said Heritage Hall Board secretary Audrey Rocha Reed in a press release announcement.
The project is located on Baldwin Avenue near the former Paia Mill and Paia Train Depot sites.
According to Reed, the project is slated to take a year to complete.
