Located on the Hamakua end of Keawe Street, Le Magic Pan opened a few years ago, and, knock on wood, has managed to survive the Hilo curse. On some evenings, there is live music (not hard rock, not Hawaiian, not reggae, not rap), and unlike other restaurants, the musicians play at a volume which still allows table conversation. The last time we were there, there was a pianist and a flutist. Really nice and enjoyable.

BTW, the next Grand Prix race is 6 days from now, the British Grand Prix. I will be cheering for the McLaren boyz, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. Given what I know about British food, I will likely not be inspired to post a recipe based on the great culinary traditions of Great Britain. Haggis, anyone?

Two Sundays ago, we took a day trip out to Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii, to hike the 4+ mile round trip into Kilauea Iki crater. This was the first time for both Ds and only my second time. It was a cool (but rain-less) day, which made this experience much more pleasant than my first time. We also went into the crater via the "switchbacks" and came out via the "stairs". This allowed us to time to rest on the benches (the switchback way has no benches). Unfortunately, the most difficult section of the crater (the rocky section) has to be navigated just before the stairs, which makes me seriously wonder if this way was any easier.
