Braising the Bar

Lei Chic He wore TOMS. You wore L.A.M.B. He sipped almond milk. You slurped milk shakes. He protested GMOs. You protested Two and a Half Men.

Clearly, the breakup with Vegan Guy was inevitable. While he’s licking his wounds you’re already on the prowl, hungry for a fling with a beefy newcomer.

Lucky for you, tonight’s the opening of Honolulu’s newest meat market: SALT Kitchen and Tasting Bar. The concept is charcuterie blended with American izakaya: Great meats and great drinks.

Blends with Benefits

Lei ChicThe perky host had made it seem so easy.

Maybe it was your chardonnay-induced haze or maybe it’s because everything looks simple at 2 a.m., but despite the infomercial’s promise, things aren’t going too smoothie with your new Miraculous 12-in-1 Drink Master.

Two broken blades, three jammed buttons and one volcanic explosion later, and you realize that it’ll be miracle if your latest late-night impulse buy manages to make anything other than a new hole in your wallet.

Ohm, Cool, and Collected

2 a.m. Your body is at rest but your mind is still spinning.

Did I remember to send that e-mail? Will I really be able to finish that project on time? What did he mean by “we should talk?”

Lately it feels like you’ve been bending over backwards to get your life in line. But all that anxious cycle does is leave you exhausted, on the couch, with your hand in the potato chip bag.

Breathe. Three new studios will help you rediscover your core values while breaking a sweat.

Steaking New Ground

Lei ChicThirty-four minutes into your lunch hour. All you’ve swallowed is bitterness, after:

· 15 minutes looking for your car on the 4th floor
· 10 minutes finding it on the 6th floor
· 7 minutes looking for your keys in your massive work bag
· 2 minutes swearing after finding them in your pocket

You should’ve just brown bagged it.

And then, the final straw (if you only had even a soda!): you pull up to Kawaihao Street ravenous for Sean... Read more »
