Neighborhood Watch

Lei Chic
Lei Chic

Your First Fridays: totally booked. You've got trunk shows, gallery hopping, and the occasional live performance on a theater marquee.

Your Third Fridays: now also booked, thanks to the launch of Third Fridays Kaimuki. From 6-9 p.m. every third Friday of the month, neighborhood businesses will host live music, art exhibits, special deals and more.

New to the East side? Feel free to use our trusty map of 18 must-hit spots as your guide. Don't forget to pick up a passport card, get it stamped by five participating merchants, and score a free gift while supplies last.

Way to make the other two Fridays look bad.
