Dinner at Kalapawai Cafe in Kailua; I picked Bryan & Erik up & we headed over the mountain. I was listening to Ritual de lo Habitual, & at some point in “Then She Did” I switched to a Slash/Sixx AM/Panic Channel playlist because, I said, “Sorry guys, not sure if you listen to Jane’s Addiction at all.” I don’t know a lot of JA fans any more. Erik immediately said they were one of his favorite bands & then it was kind of a moment, because Jane’s Addiction IS my favorite band & has been most of my adult life.
Anyway, when we got to Kalapawai Cafe a little before 7, it was a 30 minute wait for a table, even though they were expecting us. Kalapawai does not take reservations, & the place is slammed just about every day. This was Wednesday, & last night they’d done 180 covers. That’s just crazy for a place that size.
Anyway, it was a long wait, more than 30 minutes, but that’s just something that happens in small restaurants like this. We stood around, chatting, outside, & I saw a dude that looked like Perry Farrell. And then his wife, this super skinny, long legged, Cruella DeVille In The Summer-looking woman in mile high red heels, called him “Perry.”
