7 Reasons to Get out

February 2008


FEB. 1-2

Hit the Road!

The Punahou Carnival is back, with a new theme: “Road Trip USA, Are We There Yet?” From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m on Friday and Saturday enjoy action-packed rides, carnival games and loads of tasty eats—including the carnival’s famous warm malassadas. Purchase scrip throughout the midway and get on the road to fun.


 FEB. 7  


Happy 4706! Ring in the Chinese New Year downtown at the Mun Fa Cultural Plaza, at Beretania and Maunakea Streets. Expect plenty of entertainment, lion dances, food and fireworks in celebration of the most important Chinese holiday of the year.


FEB. 8

Hana Hou

Listen to the sweet sounds of Aaron Sala and others at the New Traditionalists concert at Hawaii Theatre. Each year the Hana Hou! Series program features a cast of Hawaii’s most promising musical talent. www.hawaiitheatre.com.


FEB. 10

Go Pro
Come out to the Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium to watch the best players in the NFL. After an outstanding season on the local football front, you might ask yourself if there’s such a thing as too much football. We didn’t think so. www.nfl.com/probowl.

 FEB. 18

Run with Aloha

So maybe you weren’t quite ready for December’s marathon. The 24th Annual Great Aloha Run—the 8.15-mile race from Aloha Tower to Aloha Stadium—on the other hand, might be just up your alley. www.greataloharun.com.


FEB. 20 and 23

Bend It

Don’t miss your chance to see David Beckham and the rest of the L.A. Galaxy compete against three other teams from the U.S., Japan and Australia in the first ever Pan-Pacific Championship at Aloha Stadium. Two days of doubleheader play will determine which of the four teams will reign victorious. For ticket information, visit www.ppchampionship.net.

FEB 27.

Dine Out

Eat good food for a great cause by taking part in Oahu Dines today. More than 15 local restaurants from Kapolei to Kailua will donate a portion of their day’s proceeds to the Life Foundation, a local nonprofit dedicated to fighting AIDS. Visit www.oahudines.org for a full list of participating restaurants.
