If you’re in your 20s…
Eat the Street
This once-a-month food-truck rally, featuring dozens of local vendors, each pumping out ono food with the month’s ingredient (garlic, bacon, tomato, etc.), draws in hundreds. Strike up a conversation in line. What may start off as sharing a waffledog could lead to so much more. 555 South St., streetgrindz.com.
Moose McGillycuddy’s Waikiki
Need to make rent, but still want to party? Then Moose’s Dollar Night with mixed drinks from $1 to $3 on Tuesday may be the place for you. It is especially popular among international exchange students, so it may also be a good opportunity to brush up on your language skills. 310 Lewers Street, 923-0751, Dollar Night starts at 7 p.m.
This monthly event brings crowds of art-enthusiasts—or people who just want to party—to Chinatown’s art galleries and bars. firstfridayhawaii.com.
Get ready to dance at SoHo on Wednesday nights after 11 p.m. and on First Friday. A warning to older singles: this club sometimes has 18-and-over events. 80 S. Pauahi St., Chinatown.
If you’re in your 30s…
Art and Flea
This monthly market at Fresh Café is perfect for the hipster and art/vintage wares-loving crowd. There’s also live music and food and drinks from the café. 837 Queen St., artandflea.com.
Art After Dark
For the first 10 months of the year, the Honolulu Academy of Arts hosts Art After Dark on the last Friday of each month. Each month has a new theme, such as this month’s (October 2012) “Freak Out!” where you can bust out your Halloween costume, meander through galleries and listen to DJs while you eat, drink and dance the evening away. honolulumuseum.org.
