Weekend Picks - Saturday, March 16, 2013

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

Veronica Mars Contribute
Mars Landing
If only we had $10,000 and lightning quick reflexes, we would have totally bought the speaking role in the Veronica Mars Kickstarter launched by creator Rob Thomas and actress Kristen Bell (alas, it went to this guy). Still, we're absolutely stoked to see our favorite Neptune gang reunite on the big screen, and the fact that they fulfilled their $2 million goal in just one day ( it's now nearing the $3.5 million mark) is by far the best story we've heard all week.
Details: Pledge packages start at $10 and, believe it or not, they're a good read, so get in on the record-breaking action.

Star Gazing
Meet (and pick the brain of) Academy Award-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden at a special event hosted by the Hawaii International Film Festival and Halekulani. The night features a screening of the movie Pollock and a Q&A session with Harden herself.
When: April 1 at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Doris Duke Theatre at Honolulu Museum of Art, 900 S. Beretania St.
Details: $10 general admission, buy tickets online.
Also: HIFF just released the film program and schedule for its Spring Showcase, which takes place April 5-11 at Regal Dole Cannery Stadium. Browse the lineup before tickets go on sale Thursday for HIFF Ohana members and Tuesday, March 26, to the general public.

Store Crazy
By now, you've probably already heard that H&M has confirmed a Hawaii store will open in the Waikiki Business Plaza. If not, well, now you know. So check out a provided rendering of the new store as spotted on WWD:
