Late adds to Lei Chic's guide to the weekend's best events

Weekend Picks - Saturday, January 26, 2013

Lei Chic Learn
Bon Appetit
Learn how to cook French fare at Brasserie Du Vin's demo and tasting event. Chef Marco Elder will demonstrate a few lunchtime classics: croque monsieur (a.k.a. the ultimate ham and cheese sandwich), ratatouille, and strawberry souffle with chocolate ganache. The best part: you get to sample all the dishes yourself.
When: Monday at 6 p.m.
Where: Brasserie Du Vin, 1115 Bethel St.
Details: $25 plus tax and gratuity. For reservations, call (808) 545-1115.

TAPS Shoes
Snag a pair of custom printed sneakers from TAPS, or TheAlternativePrintStudio, at a trunk show at Super Citizen (the latest styles feature artwork by Peggy Chun). Feel free to pick up an existing pair or put in an order to be printed at TAPS' Dillingham studio. Each one features vulcanized rubber soles and built-in arch support.
When: Today, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: Super Citizen, Kahala Mall.
Details: $95. For more information, call (808) 721-3203 or send an email.

Wardrobe Updates
Lei Chic - OMG. After more than a year off the air, The Rachel Zoe Project is back. Its fifth season premieres March 6 and, according to its heavily-edited trailer, chronicles the stylist-turned-designer's reported struggles with her eponymous fashion line. We are so tuning in.
- It's official. The Barneys Warehouse Sale will once again be shoppable online, offering up high-end designer duds at up to 70 percent off. No date has been announced (there was no advanced notice for the last one either), but it's expected to happen sometime next month. Register your address and you'll get an email notification once the site goes live.
