Proposed restaurant worries small Maui town

By Associated Press

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) Merchants in a small town on the northern coast of Maui say they have misgivings about the arrival of a restaurant owned in part by veteran rock 'n' roller Gene Simmons.Partners in the venture, a Rock & Brews restaurant and bar, say it will not be blasting Kiss music in Paia (pah-EE'-yah).

Paia Merchants Association director Rose Potter tells the Maui News that the community is concerned about keeping its character and charm.

Rock & Brews founding partner Michael Zislis says the restaurant will be designed to blend in with Paia and will be family-friendly.

He says the group's three other restaurants have a children's playground and bench seating for families.

The restaurant hopes to open by the end of the year.
