Well, Zippy's is now offically opened on Maui.  Last week when we went for dinner at 8:30pm (pre-opening week) the waiter or whomever he was said that they, the restaurant side is closed.  I asked what time you close?  He said at 8.  So I asked him are you guys closing at 8 everynight?  He said yes.  What a lie!  Rookies!  Then he told us to go to the Take Out area to see if they are opened.  While walking over, we asked a worker if they are opened,...
