HONOLULU Magazine’s Rosé Soirée Presented by Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan

Saturday, October 12, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Sip, sip, hooray! Our second pink party takes place this Saturday at the IBM Building courtyard in Ward Village. Enjoy a selection of refreshing rosé wines and small bites from some of Hawai‘i’s top restaurants that include 12th Ave Grill, Feast and La Vie. We’re excited to try Pai Honolulu’s dish: citrus-cured wild king salmon mousse and yuzu-marinated ikura atop sourdough. Gazoz will also serve nonalcoholic sparkling water. New this year, treat yourself to a pampering station by Heaven on Earth Salon & Day Spa. And if you’re looking to upgrade your evening, VIP ticket holders get in an hour early, plus have access to the VIP lounge as well as exclusive dishes from Senia. A portion of the evening’s proceeds benefit Hoʻōla Nā Pua. Tickets are going fast and won’t be available at the door, so here’s your last chance. Cheers!

$65 general, $95 VIP, IBM Building courtyard, 1240 Ala Moana Blvd. For more information and to purchase tickets, go here.

GeekCraft Expo

Saturday, October 12, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, October 13, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This month’s NEET Honolulu was postponed until 2020, but not to worry: If you’re looking for original artwork by local crafters, GeekCraft Expo is like a comic convention’s artist alley, with handmade toys, accessories, décor and clothing as well as make-and-take craft activities. Feel free to cosplay as your favorite superhero or geeky character and register online to get in free. The expo will also feature Da Kine Indy Publishing Festival, where you’ll find independently published comics, novels, poetry, zines, sketchbooks and more.

$0–$5, Hawai‘i Convention Center, 1801 Kalākaua Ave. For more information, go here.

The Get Up Kids

Saturday, October 12, 8 p.m.

After you get your fill of rosé, walk over to The Republik to continue the party with The Get Up Kids. Since the mid-’90s, these pop punk rockers have been leaving their hearts on stage with lyrics such as “It’s like you’re falling in love while I’m just falling apart” and “You’re a few years overdue, I spent them waiting here for you.” Sing along to their first new album in eight years, Problems.

$22–$27, The Republik, 1349 Kapi‘olani Blvd. For more information, go here.

 

Komen Hawai‘i Race for the Cure

Sunday, October 13, registration begins at 5 a.m., 5K run/walk at 7 a.m.

It’s not too late to register for this annual walk to beat cancer. Right now, the top team, My Boobs Were Made for Walking, has raised more than $13,000 that goes toward breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment. Sign up for a 5K or just try the 1-mile fun walk and stick around for entertainment afterward. 

$15–$50, Kapi‘olani Park, 3840 Pākī Ave. For more information, go here.
