The Last Dance: A Memoir of the Garden Island Grille
By Dave Trentlage
Genre: Nonfiction/Memoir, 2023
Kimber: Someone say “burgers”?
Mom: No, Kimmi. I said “restaurant.” Now stop vulching.
Kimber: Vulching? I am not vulching. I am merely standing guard over the kitchen, ever-vigilant in case any stray top sirloin finds its way onto the floor. By the way, what’s a “restaurant”? It has burgers, right?
Well. Let’s get one thing straight right out of the gate, okay? This isn’t a story about a restaurant. It’s not about what it takes to run a successful restaurant. It’s not even a behind-the scenes look at running a restaurant in the garden island of Kauai, although you’ll find all of the above and more within.
