6 Ways To While the Weekend Away
Check out fancy fast food, a local-tastic pop-up and a crafty workshop.
On Cloud Nine
What: We were super bummed when Mu‘umu‘u Heaven closed shop earlier this year. That’s why we were extra excited to hear about the team’s new pop-up at T Galleria, which opened last week. Visit the beautiful beach-house set-up on the first floor of the Galleria until the end of spring to get your vintage and upcycled fashion fix. Some cute items you’ll find include Hawaiian print clutches, patchwork dresses, retro dishware and cute denim cutoffs.
When: The exhibit runs through the end of June.
Where: T Galleria Hawaiʻi by DFS, 330 Royal Hawaiian Ave.
Details: Call (808) 931-2700 for more information.
What: We’re always scrambling for a scrap of paper to jot notes down on. Give yourself something nicer—and more personal!—to scribble on. At Chai Studio’s latest workshop, artist Linda Strong will guide you through paper selection and the binding process to make your own notebooks. You’ll also be able to choose from the Chai Studio selection of wood block stamps to give your notebook a pretty, rustic flair.
When: Sunday, April 18 at 11 a.m.
Where: Chai Studio, Ward Village
Details: $30, reserve your spot at chai-studio.com.

Up at Dawn
What: We really missed Honolulu Night Market last month. We forgive them, though, because this month looks like it’s going to be one for the history books. Local boutique fave Homecoming will be selling hot brands such as Jeffrey Campbell and Wonderland HNL. Oopsy Daze and Of One Sea will also be there with chic kids’ clothes, while CHIEF will set the runway on fire with fellow clothing line Love at Dawn. And of course you’ll find more than enough food options to satisfy your cravings, including The Pig and The Lady, Wow Wow Lemonade and Primo Popcorn.
When: Saturday, April 18, 6–11 p.m. Fashion show at 8 p.m.
Where: 449 Cooke St.
Details: Visit honolulunightmarket.com for more vendor information.
What: Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Time to figure out what mom wants. Beauty products? Shopping? Food? All of the above? Stop by Kapolei this weekend for a pop-up event that has it all, and get a head start on mom’s gift. Celeb designer Kini Zamora will be there for fashionista moms who wouldn’t mind a wardrobe update. There will also be cosmetics by Younique (what lady doesn’t love a fresh mascara now and then?) and Chat’s Sweets, toting the surefire way to any woman’s heart: cupcakes.
When: Saturday, April 16, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
Where: 91-224 Puanohu Place
Details: Call 520-1415 for more information.
What: It’s been years since IONA Contemporary Dance Studio has had a full evening-length performance, so we’re stoked to hear about the new one, which opens in May and is sure to be hot—so buy your tickets early! (Like, this week, guys. Don’t delay.) Dominion will communicate the relationship between humans and animals via dance, spoken word and multimedia imagery. In fact, the troupe, which is known for elaborate costumes and sets, will be adding digital elements such as LED screens for a truly next-level experience.
When: Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, May 10 at 4 p.m.
Where: Hawai‘i Theatre Center
Details: Tickets are $35–$65 at iona360.com.
What: Hot date this weekend that you totally forgot about? We’ve all been there. Dreading the idea of having to chow down on foie gras and other things you can’t pronounce? Get some culinary inspiration from these gorgeous platings of your favorite—er—down-to-earth dishes that are suddenly oh-so-fancy. Pop tarts never looked so classy. Needless to say, your date will be blown away. You’re welcome.
Details: And the perfect musical accompaniment to this date is obviously this.
