It may be the tequila-est night of the year, but that doesn’t mean every 21-and-older person is out to get floored on May 5. Some of us have jobs, kids, next-day plans or even just 9 p.m. bedtimes. For those of you who want to celebrate but aren’t keen on bar hopping, ShoreFyre in Waikīkī might be just the respite you need for an under-the-radar Cinco de Mayo evening.

The OG location can be found along Koa Avenue; the newer one, which opened in 2019, is located in the International Market Place Grand Lānai, where the old Baku Waikīkī used to be.
