Controversial Maui restaurant set to open

By Associated Press

PAIA, Hawaii (AP) A Maui restaurant whose business partners includes veteran Kiss rock 'n' roller Gene Simmons is set to open despite concerns from some in the community that the establishment won't fit in with Paia's laid-back charm.

Rock & Brews is set to open next month in Paia, a small northern Maui town characterized by its plantation architecture.

The Maui News reports that at a blessing Sunday, business partner Paul Stanley of Kiss addressed the concerns. He says the eatery will be good neighbors and will be part of the community.

Building the restaurant meant battling appeals by Wailuku attorney Isaac Hall and the Maui Tomorrow Foundation.

State Sen. J. Kalani English and Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa were among those who attended the blessing.
