Where is Midtown Ala Moana? [Updated]

UPDATE [April 24, 2019]: Historically this area was known as Kalia. Sounds like a perfectly good name to me. See the end of this post for details. Midtown Ala Moana is “considered a haven for foodies,” a draw for “fashionistas,” and home to The Republik nightclub, Like Like Drive Inn, and Shokudo restaurant. “Here you can start the day lying on sandy shores at Ala Moana Beach Park and end it with a night on the town singing karaoke or swaying to the sound of visiting bands,” according to...

Tokyo Eating

I wish I liked sushi because here I was in the heart of sushi makers. I love seafood but I like it cooked and if it tastes too fishy-if you know what I mean-I don’t like it so I was hoping to have a lot of food I was familiar with such as tempura and gyoza. This was one place we went in. The neighborhood around our hotel was loaded with little places to choose from. I wasn’t wild about the food here but I liked the interior. By the way, we had to take our shoes off to enter. A look a...

Odd ice cream flavors in Puerto Rico

The town of Lares , Puerto Rico, is famous for two things: a short-lived revolution against Spain in the late 1800s called the Grito de Lares and the unusual and exclusive ice cream flavors of Heladería Lares. One is a piece of violent history, the other a house turned ice cream shop selling garlic, cilantro, and even rice and beans flavored ice creams. Both are linked to the sense of orgullo, or pride, of Lares residents who are fiercely protective of their heritage and can trace their ances...

Literary-themed homes on Airbnb

Stepping into your favorite novel used to be a feat of the imagination, but now you can actually stay in homes inspired by some of the world’s greatest literary works. Airbnb is renting several homes that look like they’re straight out of a piece of literature. In honor of World Book Day, the homes were being rented for just $17 — the average price of a book — per night for select dates throughout May, June, July, and on April 23.

Where to celebrate Pride in the US

So, this year, to commemorate this culturally and historically important moment, every pride parade across the nation is promising to provide entertainment that is bigger and better than ever.

Best cities for book lovers

Travelers who love reading can do better than carry a novel in their suitcase and pull it out at the beach or on the train to satisfy their literary cravings. Instead, they can plan trips according to their taste in literature and visit the sites of their favorite stories or drink in pubs where their go-to authors once conceived their fictional worlds. Whether it’s having a pint in Oxford, with the ghosts of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, or daydreaming about Dostoevsky’s masterpieces on the ...

Like it’s 1988

It’s been a while since I’ve written up a mini review for one of my year-based movie marathons (1967, 1968, 1977, 1978, 1985, 1986, 1987), and that’s because I was still planning on watching a few more movies for 1988, but I sort of stalled at the start of the year. Even though there were a few more films I was planning on watching, I think I’m going to call it here, and move on. Next up should be a viewing of films released in 1969, but I’m in no big hurry. For now, here’s the list — in al...

Best certified US Neapolitan pizzas

Italians take their pizza quite seriously, and nowhere in Italy takes it more seriously than the city of Naples. This is a major surprise to absolutely no one, but what you might not know — unless you’re fortunate enough to spend your working hours stirring sauce and pounding out dough — is that there’s an organization whose sole mission is to make sure that Neapolitan pizza remains free of false bravado. The group is called the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana, and its mission is to“promot...

Becoming an American Au Pair in France

In the winter of 2017, I fell in love with a French man over the internet. When I told my family and friends about him, they were happy for me, but they didn’t understand how I could fall in love over the internet or how the relationship could survive the 5,000 mile distance. After a month of daily FaceTime calls, this French man became my boyfriend. He promised to come to see me the next summer. Being as impatient as I am, I knew that I couldn’t wait 6 months or more to meet the man of my dream...

Two-thirds Americans lie about trips

Everyone knows that Instagram doesn’t always equal reality, but now there’s actually a study to prove it. A survey conducted by Jet Cost, a flight-comparison site, found that many US travelers may be lying about how much they actually enjoyed their vacations. The survey polled over 4,000 people and about two-thirds admitted to misrepresenting their last getaway. A spokesperson for Jet Cost told TravelPulse, “Even though it is probably more common than not in the US to have not holidayed abro...

Cathay Pacific cabin crew theft

It’s one thing to take an extra snack or meal on a long flight, but Hong Kong carrier Cathay Pacific is dealing with outright thievery on its planes. A wide range of items is reportedly going missing from Cathay Pacific flights, including mini tubes of Haagen-Dazs ice cream, bottles of Champagne, and cutlery. Much of the blame is being placed on the cabin crew, but CEO Rupert Hogg believes the blame may lay elsewhere. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today program, “The bigger issue is a pilferage issue...
