Tiki’s Grill & Bar in Waikiki joined wide receiver Davone Bess of the Miami Dolphins in hosting a Pro-Bowl Kick off party. Live music by "Canoes for Rent", a heavy pupu buffet, silent and live auction items, all to benefit The Bess Route Foundation. Past University of Hawaii Warrior Football teammates Ryan Grice-Mullen, Chad Owens, Colt Brennan and other NFL players were on hand to help host the party and sign autographs.
The Bess Route Foundation has come to fruition through a simple belief that hard work breeds success in many aspects of life. Through Davone's devotion to seeing the good in every human being we are committed to bringing quality events, information and training to people in the community who lack the sufficient resources to do so. By the people and for the people our number one goal is to always create a positive atmosphere for our young to learn because with every worthless word, we, as a nation get further away from our goal to evolve as better human beings.

Hawaii Ranchers Natural Beef made its Oahu debut by hosting a tasting event at Tiki's Grill & Bar in Waikiki. A top quality beef product originating in Hawaii, finished at mainland feed lots and brought back to the islands.In this innovative program, beef cattle born in Hawaii on island ranches throughout the state will be shipped to Country Natural Beef (CNB) in Boardman, Oregon where they will graze on pasture in designated areas, separate from other cattle in CNB's program.
The beef cattle, still owned by Hawaii ranchers, will graze on natural grasses in large pastures for 14 to 18 months. Three months before harvest, the beef cattle feed on cooked potatoes, hay, corn and a vitamin mineral supplement. All feedstuffs are vegetarian and the beef cattle are never administered antibiotics or growth stimulating hormones. Finished beef cattle will be processed and fabricated by AB Foods, Toppenish, Washington, and shipped back to Hawaii for distribution by HFM Foodservice.
"While this program involves many companies and many steps in the process, the resulting Hawaii Ranchers Natural Beef product will be consistent in quality and available throughout the year," said Sara Moore, president of the Hawaii Cattle Producers Cooperative Association (HCPCA) which is spearheading this project.
"CNB meat is on the lean side, reaching USDA grades of "high select" and "low choice" with consistent quality. Our goal is to provide Hawaii consumers with good quality meat that originate on island ranches. This program will help us sustain ranching in the islands," said Moore, who is also the manager for Kealia Ranch on Hawaii Island.
HCPCA and its Hawaii Ranchers brand represents 50 ranches in the state of Hawaii that have more than half of the state's breeding cows and bred heifers on 455,000 acres of grazing lands. A dozen of these ranches belong to Country Natural Beef, a beef marketing cooperative that allow family ranchers to own and control their beef from birth to plate.
Country Natural Beef sells and distributes its members' products to restaurants and supermarkets such as New Seasons Market and Burgerville in Portland, Oregon, Puget Consumer Co-ops in Seattle and Whole Foods.
HFM Foodservice headquartered in Honolulu is the distributor for the Hawaii Ranchers Natural Beef.

Kaunaloa, the greatly anticipated solo release from Na Palapalai’s Kuana Torres Kahele. This collection of primarily original compositions showcases his talent as a songwriter and impressive vocal ability as a solo recording artist. Kuana’s melodies are as refreshing as they are intoxicating. Kaunaloa, meaning “to persevere,” is Kuana at his best, providing a musical journey that will both enrich and excite the world of hula and Hawaiian music. - from http://www.mountainapplecompany.com/kuana/
On Friday July 29th, with Waikiki Beach as the backdrop, Kuana Torres Kahele will perform Hawaiian music from his new album ‘Kaunaloa’ at Tiki's Grill & Bar for a live audience and statewide broadcast on KFVE TV.
