Aloha! The Kona Babes (14 of us at last count) live either full or part time in West Hawaii and are from various walks of life, who try to meet every Wednesday for lunch at one of our island’s many eateries to revel in the camaraderie of our sisterhood. We discuss in great detail (with all the savvy knowledge of women who have lived as we all have) important, customary subjects – along with topics not so orthodox! (keeps it spicy, afterall). The Kona Babes have even been referred to as “social and philanthropic” on the Wheel of Fortune; pleasing us greatly, as you can imagine, for such a flattering acknowledgement!
As a reader of our Big Island entertainment and dining out reviews, you should get a realistic grasp on what’s Hot and what’s Not in Kona, thereby saving you tons of unwasted time and money trying to discover for yourselves where to go and what to do while visiting our island paradise. We promise to tell it like it is, along with photos, prices, and information not usually available in printed guides. Since you already know that we are “social”, wouldn’t you call our reviews a “philanthropic” service?
…and to quote Babe Joann (who puts it succinctly):
I enjoy just “listening” at some of the lunches and I have learned so much from all of you. It’s fun, supportive, an opportunity to get out, breaking bread at so many different restaurants – and in that way, we are philanthropic. We support our local bistro’s! Isn’t it fun,after all, to have a reason to put on hot shoes and go out?
We plan to introduce ourselves through writing and photos, and hope that you feel as if you are sitting amongst us at the table on Wednesdays enjoying the process!
