What:
You need a gift for Dad, stat – and one that’s better than another aloha shirt or grill tools set. A couple great ideas... 


1.  Take him to Gourmet Cooking Hawaii’s Father’s Day Culinary Party with Chef Elmer Guzman, tonight from 6-8. He’ll cook a three-course meal side-by-side with Chef Elmer – the menu includes steamed clams, prime rib and bread pudding for dessert. Call 808.735.7788 for more info or to book a spot.

2.  A nice bottle of scotch from Wine By Numbers. Take Dad to an in-store tasting Friday from 6-8 p.m. or Saturday from 3-6 p.m. and let him sip Glenmorangie, Macallan, and others, and pick a bottle he likes to take home. Call the store for more info, 808.671.1120 or www.winebynumbers.com
