Happy Camper for Sunday, February 5, 2023

Susan Pittman of Clayworks at Kilohana in Puhi said there will be no Souper Sunday for the big game coming up on Feb. 12 because the restaurant at Kilohana doesn’t open on Sundays. She said, the next one, for sure.

Ferdinand Dosono (you gotta know where the high spots are at the Puhi open field so your grill doesn’t end up standing in water) is worried about the Kim Chee Eating Contest that’s supposed to be part of the Waimea Town Celebration (is that after Valentine’s Day?) later in the month. Super Bowl? Ferdinand said there’s a lot of orders for marinated kalbi, but not cooked. He said people want to grill them while the game is going on for the best flavor.

The Rev. Kohtoku Hirao of the Waimea Shingon Mission will be hosting the Hoshi Matsuri, a Buddhist festival celebrating the tonenjo, or each person’s star of the year, and honjyojo, each person’s star of the year of birth, to ward off evil. That service takes place on Feb. 12 (it’s Super Sunday!) starting at 9 a.m. at the temple in Waimea Valley.

That same day, the Waimea Shingon Mission will have a food fundraiser, where people can call the temple at 808-338-1854 to preorder a roast pork plate for $10, or three yakitori chicken sticks for $10 for pickup and go on Feb. 12 from 10:30 a.m. to noon, just in time for Super Bowl Sunday lunch and pupu.
