The Willows Anniversary Party

The Willows Anniversary Party

The Willows is celebrating eleven years of business under the new management, with a one-night celebration.

The celebration takes place on Monday, September 13 from 5:30pm – 10 p.m. The event is open to the public with a $5 cover charge for entrance.

After attending The Willows' 10th anniversary, I can say it's a great way to enjoy some of the specialty dishes that chef Jay Matsukawa and his culinary team are able to create for the celebration. The bacon-wrapped shrimp is as delicious as it sounds.

There will be a variety of food stations throughout the restaurants as well as beer, wine & spirit stations. Scripts will be sold at the door for food and drinks.

There will also be prize giveaways with a raffle ticket given at the entrance for a Vacations Hawaii Las Vegas getaway for 2 or a Dinner at The Willows for a year. You can also enjoy live entertainment by Kahua from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
