In January of 2014 two adventurers found their way into Honolulu’s most notorious neighborhood. Having heard rumors of its glory days as a red-light district during WWII, Clinton and Carter were delighted to find the area is still vibrant today. Together they hatched a plot to share Chinatown’s secret history with whoever wanted to hear and they moved to Honolulu a couple months later.
During WWII, US service men headed to Honolulu’s infamous red-light district by the thousands. Their mission was to get “Stewed, Screwed and Tattooed” before being shipped off to battle!
