The Maui News - Despite its boisterous name and affiliation with rock 'n' roll's Gene Simmons, owners of the proposed Rock & Brews restaurant assured Pa'ia residents that they are "one of the most family-friendly restaurants."
"We've committed to shutting music down after 9 p.m.," founding partner Michael Zislis said last week during a public informational meeting at a packed Pa'ia Community Center. "That seemed to be a no-brainer for us with the family-oriented restaurant we're looking to build. We are not a live entertainment venue."
Zislis of California is a partner with Simmons in the restaurant, which has locations in California and Mexico.
The bassist and singer with Kiss did not attend the meeting, but Zislis and project manager Bill Frampton fielded questions from the estimated 100 people in attendance.
