Kuhio Grill, a place for good food, camaraderie

By Bob Sigall

~~<p>Gwen Taketa emailed me recently and suggested I write a column on the old Kuhio Grill in Moiliili. Artists like Satoru Abe, Tadashi Sato, Bumpei Akaji, Tetsuo Ochikubo and others used to trade artwork for food when they were poor, she said, and later as they got more successful they continued to drink and eat there.&nbsp;</p>
<p>I went there once when I attended the University of Hawaii in 1974-75. My favorite teacher, Jerry Shapiro, dragged four or five of my fellow students down there one afternoon. If we order beers and tip good, he told us, the waitress will make us free pupu.</p>
