Ex-bar owner on liquor panel
Dennis Enomoto, a real estate agent, was confirmed yesterday as a member of the Honolulu Liquor Commission despite public questions about liquor-
related violations when he was part owner of two bars.
The City Council voted 7-1 in favor of the nomination, which was made by Mayor Jeremy Harris on June 1.
The commission oversees about 1,500 businesses that sell liquor on O'ahu.
Enomoto and his brother, developer Tom Enomoto, were shareholders in two now-closed bars Hawai'i Stars Studios on Nimitz Highway and downtown Karaoke Box. The bars had six violations.
