Lei Chic

Syncing 'Ship
We're breaking from the norm to bring you a Weekend Pick that you can do right now. If you didn't catch it on television (or even if you did), you'll want to watch Jimmy Fallon challenge *swoon* Joseph Gordon-Levitt and comedian Stephen Merchant to an epic lip sync battle. The video has already racked up more than two million views on YouTube in the past two days.
Details: Discover what all the hilarity is about here.

Well Bread
Don't miss the debut of Freshly Baked, a monthly bake sale and themed competition where participants bake tasty treats using a mandatory local ingredient. Entries are judged by taste, creativity, originality and presentation. This month's ingredient: Waiola Water.
When: Saturday, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Where: Fresh Cafe, 831 Queen St.
Details: $3 admission, includes voting tickets for your top three favorites. Click here for more.

Lei Chic Love Bites
Honolulu Gourmet Foods, a long-time Kapiolani Community College Farmer's Market vendor, recently opened a store in Waikiki. The bright, welcoming shop is stocked with its own signature salad dressings, healthy grab-and-go fare and other local munchies from Madre Chocolates, Kahuku Farms, Reppun Waianu Valley Taro Loi and Farm, and more.
Where: Pacific Beach Hotel, 2490 Kalakaua Ave.

Bride and Joy
Shop jewelry designer Melinda Y. Butler's newest offerings at a trunk show just outside Super Citizen. The appearance is part of a special mall-wide bridal event featuring wedding vendors, tastings, live entertainment, in-store specials and more (though you don't need to be a bride to wear her elegant designs!).
