Relax: Ultimate Freeze Week
Valid through June 30
We just celebrated Father’s Day, but here’s another cool offer for your old man from Cryo Therapy Hawai‘i Spa: Ultimate Freeze Week. This seven-day package deal saves dads $378 and includes two 2-minute treatments per day. If he’s scratching his head on what exactly cryo therapy is, tell him it’s cold treatments for the whole body, specific skin areas and the face, known to safely and effectively revitalize skin and help combat stress, insomnia and muscle and joint pain. Simply put, it’s going to help dad chill out.

Need to satisfy that sweet tooth? Then head down to La Palme D’or where there are almost-too-cute-to-eat sweets, treats and cake.

Five lucky winners who enter the giveaway will win event cakes for up to a year ($250 value), 10 will win Thanksgiving and Christmas cakes, and 20 will win a Christmas cake. The icing on top: The first 10 customers to enter the store on those days will receive a gift!

Attend: Art After Dark
Friday, June 24, 6 to 9 p.m.
It won’t be a quiet night at the museum. This monthly art party combines art, entertainment and food all in one spot. Peruse history-changing archeological finds in Honolulu Museum of Art’s latest exhibit, Art in a Time of Chaos, and then participate in an art activity. DJ Jem will be spinning Chinese electro beats throughout the evening. Performances include a lion and dragon dance, and you’ll want to stick around for the Chinese-themed food items.
$10, Honolulu Museum of Art, 900 S. Beretania St.
Shop: Poolside in the Pacific
Saturday, June 25, 2 to 6 p.m.
Every summer has a pool party you don’t want to miss, and this summer is no exception. Waikīkī’s hip new hangout, The Surfjack Hotel + Swim Club, is throwing its first official pool party, and you’re invited. Sport some throwback threads to this retro-inspired event, where you can kick it poolside, sipping on drinks. You’ll also get to shop pop-up shops from Bikini Bird and Roam Hawai‘i.
Ages 21 and up, The Surfjack Hotel + Swim Club, 412 Lewers St.
Shop: Secret Record Store
Saturday, June 25, 2 to 8 p.m.
Psst. If you want to expand your vinyl collection, we know where to go. Stop by Secret Record Store’s pop-up at Downbeat Lounge. This mobile pop-up sells vinyl albums ranging from punk rock to Latin jazz to soul and reggae. Enjoy an afternoon cocktail while you’re browsing the selection and listen to music selections from DJ Monkey, JohnJohn and DJ Jet Boy.
Downbeat Lounge, 42 N. Hotel St.
Play: Bottoms Up! Yoga and Social
Sunday, June 26, 10 a.m. to noon
Let it flow! And by that, we mean the good energy, and also the drinks that will be available at this yoga sesh. The second Bottoms Up! event will include an hourlong yoga session. Just remember to bring your own mat and arrive by 9:45 a.m. A little sunscreen wouldn’t hurt, either, since the class will take place outdoors. After that, socialize over beer flights, cocktails or—for those who don’t want alcohol—mocktails. There will also be raffle drawings for goods and services from CorePower Yoga, Lash Up Studio, Shaka Juice and Waikīkī Brewing Co. Namas-YAY.
$20, Waikīkī Brewing Company, 1945 Kalākaua Ave. For more information and to purchase tickets, go here.
