Remembering the Kailua of old

Sep 15, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Honolulu Advertiser

KAILUA - Before urbanization and tract homes, and before the population moved closer to the beach, Kailua's center was at the entrance to Maunawili Valley, where stores prospered and farmers worked.

In the 80's Kailua had a place called the crow bar. I can't remember the street but I think across the block was Fast Eddies a night club. Is this right at all? I looked on Google Earth and nothing looks familiar anymore and that's just 25 yrs. ago.

We lived on Ilimano Street from 1958 to July of 1962. I think there were two separate crashes in our neighborhood during that time. One plane hit houses. The other plane hit the empty schoolyard and parking lot.

I used to work at the CrowBar back in 84-85. It was on Hoolai Street where Boston's Pizza is now. Fast Eddies was around the corner where Walgreen's is now. Kailua has really changed and is even changing more and more these days. I have fond memories working at the CrowBar with Boo and Myra. Those were the days!

I remember watching from my bedroom window on ilunui st. The locals and jarheads fighting what seemed to be every Friday night when Fast eddies closed down for the night.
