Sammy Hagar's Airport Beach Bar
Rocker Sammy Hagar may have missed out on the lucrative Van Halen concert tour but let's not feel too bad for old Sammy, he just clinched a new restaurant deal. While other celebs such as Ashton Kutcher and Jamie Kennedy who are part of the Dolce restaurant group or Danny DeVito who recently opened an Italian restaurant in South Beach have gone upscale, Sammy's restaurant will be located in the Kahului Airport in Maui.
Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill will serve American fare with an island twist in a beach-themed restaurant that will include signed memorabilia from Hagar's own personal collection. There will also be a full bar serving fresh fruit cocktails (and presumably plenty of his tequila). Here's a good reason to check out Sammy's Beach Bar when it opens in 2008, 100% of Sammy Hagar's profits from the restaurant chain will be donated to local Hawaii charities via the Red Rocker Foundation, an organization Hagar and his wife Kari are establishing to help support children's organizations.
