On the Scene

By John Berger

IS THIS STUDIO 54?: Stephanie Sanchez, left, Dion Donahue (in hat), Foa "Afro-Man" Jennings and Ari Green dug up neo-disco attire for the big '70s-theme double birthday party thrown for Green's father, local attorney Michael Green, and sister, Liana Ortiz Green, in the Monarch Room at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Saturday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MICHAEL AND LIANA!: Estelle Green, right, who planned the big party for her daughter, left, and husband, went retro with a Tina Turner-style wig and dress. Michael opted for basic black and white.

DISCO DUDES: From left, Jason Lent, élan and Bruno struck a classic disco-era pose in the lobby. Other notables who arrived fashionably on time included the ever-ageless Mai Tai Sing, and Kala'i Stern, Kimo Kahoano, Jay Shodai, Al Waterson, record producer George Chun and falsetto singer Brittney Anelaikalani Jennings.
