This Sunday, February 8 is the annual Lobster-Fest event.

Held in the MACC’s Yokouchi Pavillion, the “VERY casual affair” and New Orleans-themed feast benefits the Wailuku Rotary Club and offers music, beverages, a surprise auction and – you guessed it – lobster.

If you’re going for the food, plan to enjoy a menu featuring:

Appetizers

  • Cajun Lobster and Roasted Corn Dip served with corn chips and lavash
  • Crispy Shrimp Bundles with smokey dipping sauce
  • Blackened Chicken with spiced aioli
