Celebrity Watch at Huggo’s!

Actor David Paymer

One of modern TV and moviedom’s most enduring character actors, David Paymer, is enjoying Spring Break here on Hawaii Island with his wife and 13-year-old daughter. The Academy Award nominee (1993 for Mr. Saturday Night) and his family enjoyed dinner with us here at Huggo’s last night while our charismatic General Manager Greg Petersen did all the entertaining, delivering the usual warm hospitality and aloha he reserves for all guests.

During his evening visit David shared he has two new movies in the works, one a thriller set for release in December — Tom Clancy’s “Jack Ryan”.  Greg says he and family said they had a great meal and super fun time with long-time Huggo’s server “Island Johnny” and that they look forward to seeing us all again soon!

We’ll have a table for you David!
