Five-O Farewell
Admit it, you started watching for the scenery but now you're a bonafide Five-O fan (despite the bad pidgin speak). Come out of the closet for Apartment3's season finale viewing party. Sip on show-inspired drinks like the Book'em Dan-O featuring rum, pineapple, and fittingly, a dash of bitters. Jump in on trivia and drinking games for prizes such as a cast-signed script or tickets to this summer's Paramore or Incubus concerts.
When: Monday, 7 p.m.
Where: Apartment 3, 1750 Kalakaua Ave. 
Details: Reservations are recommended, 808.955.9300 or e-mail

Lend a Sand

When: Today, the clean up is 10 a.m. - noon.
Where: Meet at the boat ramp between Lanikai and Kailua Beach Park.
