ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Soak up a little 'Moonlight Mele'
Reason No. 100,001 why we love living in Hawai'i:
There's nothing like plopping down on a blanket under the stars and listening to some tunes. In this case, Na Palapalai. The group kicks off the Bank of Hawaii's summer concert series, "Moonlight Mele on the Lawn," tonight on the Bishop Museum's Great Lawn.
The other two concerts are July 15 and Aug. 19. Each features a different act. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the show starting at 7.
Tickets are $15, with discounts for children ages 4 to 12, museum members, and customers and employees of the Bank of Hawaii.
Sweating up a storm
Old Spice deodorant released its Top 100 list of "Sweatiest Cities in America," and this year Honolulu moved up a notch to No. 22. Feeling the heat most is El Paso, Texas, which jumped to No. 1 from No. 28.
Greenville, S.C., is second, followed by previous No. 1 Phoenix, then Corpus Christi, Texas, and New Orleans.
The sweat-o-meter was based on the assumption that the individuals tested were walking for one hour.
(In this heat? Yeah, right.)
"That three-day crap doesn't apply. We're getting older, and we don't have time to screw around. Wait too long and we'll lose interest."
