Everything is Jake! and Hendrick's Gin

I love Everything is Jake!, a brand of vintage-style designs and travel posters by Ewa Beach resident Nick Kuchar. Hendrick's Gin isn't so bad, either. Combine the two, and you have a small exhibit of Kuchar's art commissioned by Hendrick's, now up at The Manifest. Tonight is the artist's reception, and of course, there will be some Hendrick's cocktails by Justin Park, fresh off a $10,000 mai tai competition win (and before that, a Bombay Sapphire competition).

It's all part of Hendrick's "curious and unusual" and "delightfully peculiar" brand campaign, which has Hendrick's "Commander of Special Operations" out in Hawaii working with artists like Nick Kuchar and Steve Lang, a lava artist on Big Island, the latter for a Voyages Into The Unusual video series.

Artist reception at The Manifest, September 7 at 8 p.m., 32 N. Hotel St., everythingisjake.com
