aloha friday scoop

a short and sweet scoop means no excuses for getting an early start mixing up a batch of the contessa's chive risotto cakes for dinner (which i always forget requires two hours of chill time in the fridge) . . .

hele down to beautiful waikiki for e malama i ke kai and enjoy a canoe race, surf clinic, hawaiian music, 'ono food, and new goods from kealopiko!

  • when: sat, may 14th - 10a to 3p
  • where: kapiolani park bandstand, waikiki

if reading is more your thing, the sixth annual hawaii book & music festival arrives this weekend. swap out already read tomes to make space for freshly signed books by the likes of npr darling sarah vowell (whose unfamiliar fishes about the "americanization of hawaii" just leapt to the top of my library list) and roseanne who will be sharing stories about life on her big island macadamia nut farm.

  • when: sat, may 14th & sun, may 15th - 10a to 5p
  • where: frank f. fasi civic grounds, honolulu hale, 530 south king street

on kaua'i, machinemachine returns home to the garden isle to present pretty summer wearables.

p.s. a fashion show kicks off the fun at 5:30p during the culinary & couture fundraiser (tix: $125) hosted nearby at josselin's tapas bar.

on maui, springtime keiki projects blossom during maui thing's second saturday art day.

and, fyi job hunters!, lily lotus is on the lookout for shop staff to join the new kailua shop opening this summer.

happy weekend!
