ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Hawaiian music stars in the heart of Waikiki
Thursdays at The Royal Hawaiian's Monarch Room bring "Curators of Hawaiian Music." Makana will showcase his slack-key stylings through August. Maunalua will play traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music in September and October, and Cecilio and Kapono will finish off the rest of the year with Hawaiian acoustic rock.
Hourlong sets start at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tickets for the cocktail show are $49, with a two-drink minimum ($10 discount for kama'aina tickets). Dinner packages and children's pricing available. For information, call 931-7311 or visit www.royal-hawaiian.com.
GET YOUR GOODS APPRAISED
Think you have a hidden treasure worth big, big bucks?
Check out the Hawaiian Antiques Roadshow, a free event 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and noon-4 p.m. Sunday at Carats & Karats Fine Jewelry, Antiques and Collectibles in Kaimuki. Three appraisers will be on hand to evaluate items such as jewelry, antiques, watches, porcelain, crystal, sterling silver items, flatware and spoon collections.
"Many people in this economy need to raise extra money," said store owner Brenda Reichel, who wanted to organize an event similar to "Antiques Roadshow" on PBS.
People will be given a variety of options for their items, such as whether or not they should sell them, keep them, or donate them to their favorite charity or auction. There will be a licensed buyer on site.
