Thinking about Chico’s Pizza as we talked about in the Chico’s Pizza – Revisited With Wes (Ralph) Popham blog entry, and how I wished that I Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve visited there at least once – I started thinking about other places around town – or that used to be around town, that I never went to. And I never will be able to go to because it is no longer around.
I was just talking to a coworker today who said that she used to work at The Ranch House in Aina Haina. And I started thinking that it’s another one of those places that I Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve gone to but didn’t. And it’s too late now. And we talked about how Country Comfort used to play there.
And that got me thinking about Kalapana and how they used to play at the Toppe ada Shoppe. Another place that I Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve gone to – but didn’t.
Kelly’s by the airport. Passed by it many times – but never ate there.
Tahitian Lanai – Didn’t know how legendary that place was – until it closed.
And one more:
Magic Mushroom Nightclub. Passed by it at the Gold Bond building many, many times. Again, Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve – but never did. And now it’s too late…
What establishments did you Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve visited – but didn’t?
And speaking of Magic Mushroom…
