The servicemen of Pearl Harbor's naval base were taking some much-needed R&R between early-morning repairs inside Hangar 37 when suddenly they heard a buzzing overhead. With the humming of their own planes and battleships periodically filling the air, this rapidly approaching sound wasn't foreign to their ears, but this instance proved to be drastically different. Thunderous explosions soon overtook Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona struggled to stay afloat as the Imperial Japanese Navy delivered a surprise military strike, which resulted in one of the most devastating attacks on American soil. With a mission to preserve the history of this tragic event, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor opened that very same hangar to the public, hundreds of feet from where ships burned and men courageously fought more than 70 years ago.

Hangar 37's 42,000-square-foot space currently houses many of the museum's artifacts, which include a World War II–era B-25B bomber, Japanese Zero, and naval planes such as the SBD Dauntless. Also open to the public, Hangar 79 displays the actual bullet holes that pierced its windows during the attack, while an authentic WWII maintenance shop contains an exhibit that explains how planes ran on Lucky Strike cigarette materials. Visitors can experience the museum's ever-evolving collection of exhibits––which has included segments dedicated to the Korean War's MiG Alley and the Flying Tigers––through guided tours in both hangars and submerse themselves in the virtual world of the museum's combat flight simulator.

Jill Shiroma founded her distinctive libation shop because of her love of wines and spirits and her desire to fulfill the lifestyle needs of the modern generation. SWAM offers customers an eclectic variety of vino and spirits, with an emphasis on friendly and personal service. The shop's walls are lined with cherry shelves that are fully stocked with rare and unique drinkables, including hard-to-find wines and spirits, such as Hello Kitty wines (available in the pinot nero white and the pinot nero red)—a beverage brand far superior to Flintstones chewable champagne.

Featured in Pacific Edge and Go Kailua Magazine for their trailblazing approach to crafting wine, Oeno Winemaking owners Marshall Zeigler and Bryon Crowther offer an eclectic variety of wines made with European techniques, and have recently added beers to their repertoire. The winery hosts wine-sampling sessions, which educate sippers on the nuances of aroma and body while imparting the skills of proper swirling, sniffing, and tasting. Patrons choose their favorite wine or beer, which is handmade and aged for six to eight weeks in a temperature-controlled cellar-type crypt. Customers purchasing barrels return with friends and family for a two-hour bottling event. Amidst their cache of bottles and corks, Oeno also stocks beer-making kits, which include materials for up to five gallons of homebrews.

Thai Kitchen's chefs curate a dynamic menu of customizable entrees suited to a wide variety of cravings. In the curry department, chicken, pork, beef, or seafood careen through a vibrant sauce of the diner's choosing. Noodles, rice, and lemon grass broth, meanwhile, play host to fresh vegetables and meats, such as oxtail and meatballs, while eggplants and whole fish get star billing on plates of their own. At the end of a meal, diners might indulge in Thai tapioca pudding made with coconut milk, or scrapbook their dinner by stitching pages together with rice noodles.

Aloha Crepes serves dessert all day. Of course, it's in the form of a crepe, so the light treat seems somehow appropriate for breakfast, even if you order the Aloha crepe?loaded with Nutella, a sauce of sour cream and brown sugar, strawberries, whipped cream, and powdered sugar. For something more savory, crepes can be stuffed with portobello mushrooms or grilled chicken or made into pizza-like envelopes that, with the correct postage, the US Postal Service will deliver. For a lighter dessert option, Aloha Snowflakes promise a treat that's part ice cream, part shaved ice with the consistency of frozen cotton candy. Snow ice comes in a variety of flavors made from fresh fruits, juices, and extracts with added milk.

The culinary sorcerers at The Shack conjure up a menu of Hawaiian-inspired pub grub to occupy vacant plates and empty stomachs. Oil rusty jaw-hinges and distract mouths from shouting out social security numbers with five varieties of poke, a traditional Hawaiian raw fish salad ($10.95), or with pub snacks such as jalapeño poppers full of cream cheese ($8.25). The Shack Monster cheeseburger bridges the gap between bun halves with a quarter-pound hot link and allows diners to choose from a trio of cheeses including american, swiss, and jack-cheddar ($8). Meanwhile, the 14-ounce grilled rib eye, glazed with garlic, soy, and ginger, then topped with smoked shiitake mushrooms ($23.50) is great for sating carnivorous cravings and warming up throats for draft beers, microbrews, and long conversations about renaming the moon.
