Reserve your spot for Middle Eastern dinner and movie
Dinner and a movie? Who can resist? The Kapi'olani Community College culinary program puts on a Middle Eastern food-and-film event April 3. Why are we telling you about this now? Because you have to call for reservations — 734-9211 or or 223-0130 — by 5 p.m. Monday.

The buffet includes stuffed grape leaves, hummus, baba ganoush, red lentil soup, green bean-and-beef stew, rice pilaf and hochef (dried fruits and nuts in rosewater syrup).
