Three’s Supports UHMC Students at Noble Chef!

Learning by doing can really make a difference, and we’re always happy to give culinary students that direct experience through events like Noble Chef.

It’s a huge annual fundraiser for University of Hawai‘i Maui College (UHMC) and its renown culinary program.  The popular event always touts a fun theme (this year was “White Christmas”), and features a walk-around cocktail reception with light bites and a lavish sit-down dinner.  This year, Three’s was stoked to be one of around a dozen restaurants from around Maui involved.  Three’s co-owner/chef Travis Morrin, who went through the UHMC Culinary Arts program, has maintained strong ties to the school.  He has more in our video above.

Culinary students played a big role in preparing, displaying and serving these Noble Chef menu items, which featured seared scallop over sweet potatoes with coconut corn chowder, candied bacon and shaved Parmesan; along with Tahitian poisson-cru, which is ahi and hamachi lightly marinated in coconut milk and fresh lime, topped with burnt coconut and served with avocado ice cream, Moloka‘i sweet potato and taro chips.

Mahalo to UHMC and the students for a job well done, and we’ll see you next year!!

A Bottle with Our Name On It at Three’s Bar & Grill!!

Along with our top-quality food, we’re happen to be very proud of our beverage selection at Three’s.  We have a blast with our creative cocktails, receive awards for our happy hour, and love to celebrate with our community.  Case in point?  We recently threw a Maestro Dobel Tequila tasting party in our Surf Lounge, marking the first case of bottles labeled especially for us!  Dobel Tequila bottles at Three’s now bear our logo!!  Beverage Director Glenn Morrin shares more about this cool honor and what makes this particular liquor special in our video above.  Did you know the brand has been around for more than 10 generations?!  We also crafted some new cocktails to show off this very fine, smooth-sipping tequila.  As always, our fun cocktail list, range of beers on draft and friendly bartenders make Three’s a perfect place to meet up with buddies, tip back a few, and get solid deals during happy hour, from 3 to 6 and 9 to 10 p.m.!!

One more thing:  we’re stoked to share that Three’s recently received an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator Magazine.  Here are the qualifications for this coveted award:

These wine lists, which typically offer at least 90 selections, feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. Whether compact or extensive, focused or diverse, these lists deliver sufficient choice to satisfy discerning wine lovers.

Glenn puts a ton of time, thought and energy into creating our fantastic wine list, and this worldwide recognition means a lot to us.  We’ll share more as the news comes in!!  And be sure to stop by Three’s Surf Lounge to experience the diverse array of wines and sip for yourself!!  Cheers!!

 

The Wisdom Behind Our Wines at Three’s Bar & Grill

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or simply someone who enjoys drinking it, we think you’ll be happy with our selection, which we like to call “Wailea wine at Kīhei prices.”  You can enjoy some of our wines for less, along with other killer drink and food deals, during happy hour from 3 to 6 and 9 to 10 p.m. daily!

Our beverage director Glenn Morrin (who is also Chef Travis’ dad!!) has been with Three’s from the very start.  He put a lot of time and thought into our wine list, and explains some of the highlights in this video with his son!
