Green is renowned for his sensitive portrayals of a wide range of heroic roles on some of the world’s greatest stages. But he is also well known for his unique path in the opera world, an improbable journey that began in a juvenile detention facility and carried him from solitary confinement to stardom. Green’s gripping life story is the subject of a best-selling book, Sing for Your Life: A Story of Race, Music, and Family, which has recently been adapted for the stage.
The popular Hawaiian fast casual concept, Hawaiian Bros, has plans for massive growth in Texas, bringing the humble Aloha spirit with them. Each restaurant features a striking design and island vibe with a kitchen void of freezers, fryers and microwaves. Food is prepared fresh daily. The concept offers authentic island comfort food in the form of traditional Hawaiian plate lunches as well as sides.
The first Hawaiian Bros opened in Kansas City in 2018 by brothers, Cameron and Tyler McNie, and has quickly become a staple for those who are looking for unique, consistent, high-quality food in a fast casual setting. Prior to opening their first location, the brothers were personally taught traditional Hawaiian recipes and cooking techniques used by native Hawaiians for generations.
