It’s time to dust off the antlers and elf ears, time to get that magnificently ugly holiday sweater out of the mothballs! For a limited time, the Christmas Bar Pop-Up at Ward Entertainment Center is back for the 2019 season, and it’s bigger, better, and more festive than ever.

Just in time for the holidays, Big City Diner has been transformed into an over-the-top holiday spectacle. Surrounded by lights, tinsel, candy canes, ornaments, and all the trimmings, you and your family and friends can enjoy treats that might have been created in Santa’s toy kitchen workshop. It’s a collaborative effort between Lane Muraoka of Big City Diner and Bill Tobin, Albert Ake, and Michael Miller of Tiki’s Grill & Bar.

Delectably constructed with smoked gouda and sharp cheddar on sesame Caesar crusted sourdough, the Kris Kringle’s Kimchee Grilled Cheese ($11) is a local take on an old favorite. Mele Kalikimaka Mini Turkey Pot Pie ($12) actually consists of two delicious pies in puff pastry, topped with cranberry orange relish and housemade gravy. And their name will make you chuckle, but their taste will make you moan with pleasure: the Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer… Meatballs ($13) are made with Hunan-style venison and pork, and glazed with hoisin sesame sauce.

If you’d like a festive beverage to go with your nibbles, there’s an enticing menu of drinks that can be made with or without alcohol. “We anticipate our Frozen Hot Chocolate and Butter Beer to be our top sellers, but don’t forget about the Melted Snowman Martini or the Clause-mopolitan,” says Lane Muraoka, owner of Big City Diner. “There’s fun for everyone.” And with a trolley stop nearby, this is the perfect place to wrap up a tour of the Honolulu City Lights!

The popular Christmas Bar Pop-Up concept at Big City Diner in the Ward Entertainment Center:

After the success of our last Christmas Bar we needed an even bigger and better location where we could also offer limited food items developed by our culinary team,” said Elf Michael Miller. “Ward Entertainment Center’s space allows us to get very creative with NEW drinks, pupus and decorations.  Chef Ronnie Nasuti has had a lot of fun bringing the holiday spirit to the menu.  Featured items include the Kris Kringle Kim Chee Grilled Cheese, Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer...Meatballs, and Mele Kalikimaka Mini Turkey Pot Pies.”

“We wanted to do something really fun this year for the holidays and I wanted to do something with my restaurant friends,” said Elf Lane Muraoka. “We anticipate our Frozen Hot Chocolate and Butter Beer to be our top sellers, and both can be made with or without alcohol. But don’t forget about the Melted Snowman Martini or the Clause-mopolitan. There’s fun for everyone!”

A limited-time pop-up bar, complete with holiday-themed drinks and food and over-the-top decor everywhere you turn. Prepare to feel hugged by Christmas as soon as you walk in the door!

With movies like Frozen 2 and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker coming out, along with the nearby trolley stop for Honolulu City Lights tours, it’s going to be a fun & festive holiday season alongside the other local shops and businesses in the Ward and Kaka’ako neighborhood.  

The 2019 THE Christmas Bar is a collaborative effort between four top elves in the industry: Lane Muraoka of Big City Diner, with Bill Tobin, Albert Ake, and Michael Miller who all also work at Tiki’s Grill & Bar.

So get out your ugly sweaters, dust off those reindeer antlers, and get into the holiday spirit!

All five other Big City Diner locations are open for regular service and are excited to have you join them for the holiday season at any of their other locations on the island.

My dad was radio announcer on Oahu

Before we were born my dad was radio announcer on Oahu. Here is a quote when I asked him about it.

KLEI First THEN KZOO THEN KLEI FULL TIME, THEN KGU.   Many of my voiced commercials recorded at KGU where aired on many other stations.  KGU management use my recorded voice as a policy and as a come on to ad agency’s; that it had the professional quality talent voices.  At times I made 8 or more taped dubs for an ad agency.   So you could dial in Kumu, Kpoi, Kgmb, etc.and hear my voice.   I heard that some of my voiced commercials even played on Maui stations and some outer islands stations.  At times my voice was used exclusively for certain business, I.e.  Union 76 Gas. His Radio nam was Tracy Trace.
