Hawaii Small Business TourismWritten by Shara Enay On 15 September 2010

September is traditionally a slow month for the tourism industry as the kids go back to school and folks start tightening their belts for the holidays.  To combat the slowdown, the Kailua Village Business Improvement District on the Big Island is working with area eateries to launch Kona’s first Kau Kau Kailua Restaurant Week from September 19 through 25.

Participating restaurants throughout Kailua Village (Kona’s mini Waikiki) will be offering three-course dinner menus throughout the week, ranging from $20 to $40.

“Kau Kau Kailua presents locals and visitors an ideal time to return to the water’s edge, support a longtime favorite restaurant or check out a new one,” says Eric von Platen Luder, president of the KVBID.

The event will kick-off with a free concert on Sept. 19 at 5 p.m. featuring Na Hoku Hanohano award winning musician Anuhea.
