LUANA at the Fairmont Kea Lani hits the spot for cocktails, chow and sunsets

Lush lobby lounge is ideal for couples, tipplers and foodies

by Patti Pietschmann with photos from our last LUANA experience by Richard Pietschmann


I love the Fairmont Kea Lani for dozens of reasons not the least its lush lobby lounge LUANA where Richard and I have enjoyed drinks and pupus while watching magnificent Maui sunsets. Now the hotel has added a new twist to the spot with its avant-garde LUANA Experience Series during which special events are staged that highlight the bar’s distinct approach to small batch beers and wines. One of its attractions is the talented mixologists who discuss their technique if want.  

The food is exceptional
Richard loved the beer (I'll stick to Chard)
 The LUANA Experience Series is designed to showcase the flavors and cuisine of Maui through themed celebrations including Firkin Friday, Project Cocktail, Oh….Wine Not? and Friday Night Films. These popular events allow locals and visitors to discover new flavors. Firkin Friday is presented in partnership with Maui Brewing Company to highlight an exclusive cask ale (aka firkin) and cask ale-chemy, or beer cocktails, on the first Friday of the month. Project Cocktail shines a light on the bar’s impressive technical approach to the modern cocktail. Oh….Wine Not? features tastings of wines from around the globe and Friday Night Films celebrates cocktails inspired by the silver screen. What mainlanders calls 'happy hour' or before dinner cocktails, Hawai‘i  marks the end of th e day with celebrated with a ‘pau hana’ or social time reserved for enjoying friends and libations. LUANA, which means ‘to relax and be at leisure’ in Hawaiian and it definitely does, is open every day from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.  Live music is provided on Friday and Saturday nights from 7  to 10.  

Richard also likes a good martini and discovered this gin at the LUANA bar



These taco were Maui wowie

Patti Pietschmann reporting from TMZ and other online news  sources

While I am reticent to admit this I could never get into 'Game of Thrones'. Not sure why, but it just didn't float my boat. However I was sadden to read on TMZ today that one of the show's stars Neil Fingelton, who played Mag the Mighty,  passed away in the UK yesterday, Feb. 25.
According to TMZ Fingleton was a basketball player both in college and professionally before becoming an actor.  He played in college for both University of North Carolina and Holy Cross.  He played professionally in Spain, China, Italy, Greece and England.
His other credits include "Dr. Who," X-Men: First Class" and "Avengers" Age of Ultron."

Detox, unwind, rejuvenate at spectacular Ritz-Carlton Reseve in Thailand

And explore the wonders of this amazing destination just watch the videos to see

 A recommendation of Patti Pietschmann

While I have not been to the Ritz-Carlton Reserve, I have visited Thailand and love everything about it (watch video) from the spicy cuisine to the warm sing-song sounding people, temples and scenery. And Bangkok, which rocks with excitement is one of my favorite stops in the world, which I've mostly visited by cruise ship.  

Tthis RC Reserve in  
Krabi, Thailand--which sits on the serene shores of Andaman Sea--does sounds like a dreamy spot to stay especially if you are in need of a three day detox. (The program is offered throughout the year and includes new cooking classes made from detoxifying ingredients and cleansing beverages, as well as a special detox menu featured at one of its signature restaurants).   

The way it works is that the day begins with a private sunrise yoga session or a bike ride to the surreal Naka Mountain, followed by a thermal steam in the sauna at The Spa to purify and balance circulation. Additional pampering comes by way of treatments such as a Marine Algae Body Wrap, Aromatherapy Massage, Body Scrub or a Thai Herbal Compress Massage.

 Executive Chef Wade James has created three additional cooking class menus where guests can learn to cook clean-living dishes such as a Thai Pomelo Salad with tiger prawns and roasted chili paste dressing, Vietnamese Rolls with fresh vegetable and peanut chili sauce, Sour Snapper Soup with ginger, green mango and turmeric, Tropical Fruit Skewers and more. Additionally, meals will be paired with reviving drinks and energizing juices made from mint, ginger, lemongrass, cucumber and other detox-centric ingredients. The resort’s Sri Trang Thai restaurant will also feature a special detox menu with a Banana Flower Salad, Vegetable Curry with Thai herbs, Raw Pad Thai, Spicy Beetroot Tartar and local fruit.

“At Phulay Bay we invite guests to recharge in our secluded corner of the world with a brand new three-day detox program,” says Tessa Gorman, general manager. “The program highlights the resort’s ability to cater to guests in search of a healthy living experience.”

Phulay Bay offers a variety of diversions such as island-hopping (a must do), snorkeling, hiking through the tropical jungle, kayaking inside limestone caves, exploring temples, lounging by the infinity swimming pool, 24-hour dedicated butler service and other actitivities.

To book your stay at Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, visit www.ritzcarlton.com/phulaybay  or call +66 (0)75-628-111. Rates for the three-day detox program begin at $830.

Phulay Bay, is designed for unconventional travelers hungering for rare, exotic and authentic experiences in the most remote corners of the world. Accommodations are in any of 54 one-bedroom villas that come with private plunge pools and beautiful ocean views.

Thai for “where the mountains meet the sea,” Phulay Bay lays nestled between the immaculate white-sand beaches below and limestone cliffs above. The Royal Andaman Sea Villa is the gem of the Royal Villa collection (there are six total), due to its stunning views of the Andaman, not to mention the 2 x 3 meter bed, outdoor/indoor rainforest showers, private infinity plunge pool, and separate veranda area complete with lounge chairs overlooking the villa’s beautifully manicured gardens.

Dan Castellaneta’s ‘For Piano and Harpo’ is a brilliant work of genius at the Falcon Theatre

 A passionate, dark yet humorous exploration of the life and mind of Oscar Levant 

By Patti Pietschmann

All photos by Sasha A Venola
Many of you may be too young to recall Oscar Levant whose career dates back to our parents or even grandparents’ time but you will wish you knew the man when you meet him through the eyes of  Dan Castellaneta  who wrote and stars in the brilliant ‘For Piano and Harpo’ now playing at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank--where it made its world premier earlier this month.

According to Wikipedia, Oscar Levant was an American pianist, composer, author, comedian, and actor. He was as famous for his mordant character and witticisms, on the radio and in movies and television, as for his music. He was born December 27, 1906 and died in  1972.  Castellaneta brings Levant  back to life highlighting his  wit, genius and talent. In one scene Levant refers to himself as ‘the male Eve Arden. Fame and brilliance have downside and Levant was also a chain-smoking  pill popper who was beset by demons. While that might sound bleak, the play does has a few lighter moments, some quite  funny, especially during scenes with Harpo Marx who is played definitively by  JD Cullum.

The  face-paced, scene-changing story is about the relationship between down and out Levant who is grappling to save a failing marriage and his own sanity, and Harpo Marx who is living large in a Hollywood mansion where Levant one day just moves in.  During the course  of his uninvited house guesting, Levant winds up in the Psych Ward of Mt. Sanai Hospital where he interacts with other patients. Levant is also haunted by the virtuosity of George Gershwin and the audience is treated some of the musician/composers melodies which is pantomimed by Castellanata but performed by two musicians behind a curtain.

Other characters in the cast include Jack Paar (famous late night TV host and also brilliant wit played by Jonathan Stark) who opens the play with an entertaining monologue introducing Oscar Levant. Like each  cast member Stark gives a brilliant performance. A then there’s Levant’s Mom fabulously acted by Gail Matthius, his wife equally spectacularly performed by Deb Lacusta and his father dazzlingly done by Phil Proctor.

‘For Piano and Harpo’ is a thought provoking play that will keep you  rehashing  its magic moments and make you feel that you are actually in a flash back to an earlier time.  Levant’s drug addiction is well presented and disturbingly real.  You really need to go see it for yourself. And you can from now through March 5 at the Falcon Theatre, 4252 Riverside Avenue in Burbank. Tickets cost from $30 to $45 and can be purchased at www.falcontheatre.com or by calling 818-955-8101. Please turn off your mobile devices because as they told us when the curtain went up last night, “they didn’t exist in 1962.’

By the way since the show starts at 8 p.m. during the week (4 p.m. on Sunday) you might want to plan to have dinner before and there are many good spots—from burger joins to bistros and pizza parlor and steak houses) along Riverside from which to choose. Just go to www.tripadvisor or  do a Google search  for restaurants near the Falcon Theatre.

Passenger claims her big boobs got her kicked off flight

Whoa mammary mishap on Spirit

By Patti Pietschmann
From ABC News
Get this, according to several online news sources,  a passenger claims that she was tossed off a Spirit Airlines flight because she was showing to much cleavage. The carrier denies the allegation and says the busty woman was drunk and acting up. Other passengers however defended her.

The airline says flight attendants went to talk to the woman at her seat, and her companion said they wouldn't have any more problems.  But as the flight attendant was leaving, the airline says the woman was told "by the way, you may want to cover up."  The woman said, in essence, that she was sorry, "'I can't help it, these are my breasts!'"  (Watch video to see another disgruntled passenger).


Spirit said the woman was rebooked on another flight, and that they planned on contacting her to discuss the matter. Wonder if they bought her a cover up to wear.
