Vanessa Wolf doesn’t really groove on sugar, but she does enjoy the occasional black jellybean.
By Vanessa Wolf
Step away from the Peeps and the Cadbury Eggs.
Slowly peel the fake plastic grass off your face and pump the brakes.
Sugar highs can put you on a wild and crazy roller coaster, son, but you’re gonna be okay.
Exhale and settle into your Easter weekend options.
Best Reason to Drink a Pint…or Three
Maui Brewing Company holds a quarterly fundraiser to help Maui’s native forest birds. March brings “Pint Night for the Birds.”
Maui’s native forest birds are on the brink of extinction. Biologists are searching for ways to help these birds and funding is decreasing every year.
Come to the Maui Brewing Company Brewpub tonight from 6 p.m. to midnight. Half of the night’s proceeds will support research on these unique birds. Bird biologists will be available to talk about the birds and the research.

We haven’t heard of him much lately…until now. Bill Cosby will be playing the MACC tonight at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $45, $55, $75, $85, $115
