It will indeed be yet another very sad day for Oahu lovers when those doors close for the last time. Lot's of great memories from decades at ABs, and I wasn't even a reg.

When I decided to move to Hawaii from SoCal in 1978, I mentioned my intentions to a film crew I was working with in LA. The make-up man asked me to please send him an AB t-shirt for his daughter, whose name was Anna! That place is an institution and shouldn't be allowed to close!

Yeah back in the days, getting stoned at Anna's made me think I needed institutionalizaton But it got too mainstream and I stopped going back in the 80's

Maybe they could just negotiate "furlough Fridays" instead of completely closing....

Very sad indeed if this place goes, as it was when Hot Lava disappeared.

Hmmm...considering Friday nights, like Saturdays, are probably decent revenue generating nights, how 'bout "Suspended Sundays"?

Wink Re: anna bannana's to close?

So many many many memories have just flashed in front of me after reading this!
Throwing darts... on a good night. Meeting 'people' all kinds from everywhere.
Falling backwards into the band/drum set, upstairs one night. ooops!
Dancing around in the backside parking lot. Riding our bikes with my buddy Wais home to Wiliwili Street.

Oh my... oh well. The tide and time you know.

I'll believe it when I see it. This rumor's been going around for EVER.

Unhappy Re: Anna Bannana's to close?

The lease with KS/BE is up 3/31/10. The current owner has had one meeting with KS/BE and it didn't go well and no other meeting currently scheduled. Right now, I'd say 50/50 and if they DO stay open. it will probably only be a 3-5 year lease. Been going there since '69
