Aloha Friday FYI: Oct. 21, 2022
We're spreading the news about Halloween cookie kits from A Cake Life, a spooky charcuterie workshop with Fig & Ginger Honolulu and more.
A side from our guide to the perfect weekend on O‘ahu, we got the scoop on some noteworthy events, updates and Halloween happenings that we thought we should share.
Fig & Ginger Honolulu has a Halloween Charcuterie Workshop
The restaurant and grazing platter wizards are sharing their knowledge in a special spooky workshop. Guests will learn how to make a Bats & Bones grazing board, and additional techniques and tips to wow. The kids can even participate and make their own mini keiki Graze & Go box. If you’re not the DIY type, don’t fret, you can order one of the Halloween offerings like the Monster Macs (adorably decorated macarons), Spooky Kiddy box, and even the Bats & Bones board, too.
La Pietra is Hosting Yoga Classes
The prestigious all-girls school launched its six-week Flow to Grow series in mid-October, and there’s still a few more classes to attend. The special yoga classes, held Wednesdays at 5 p.m. on the Great Lawn of the La Pietra campus, are part of a fundraiser to benefit the school’s financial aid fund. Instructors from across the island are donating their time and expertise to teach one-hour classes in a beautiful setting. All levels are welcome, but be prepared with your own mat (and don’t forget your water!).
$25, register here for the weekly classes now through Nov. 16.
Aloha Home Market Added a New Location
Aloha Home Market—one of Hawai‘i’s premier local pop-up markets—started in Kailua in 2018, and added a Honolulu location to its repertoire (Ala Moana Center) in 2022. The whole ‘ohana (even pets!) can shop a variety of local makers, enjoy live entertainment and food vendors from across the island. Recently, the team announced a third location, the Sheraton Princess Ka‘iulani. Here’s the schedule from now until the end of the year:
Every Thursday through 2022, 3 to 9 p.m.
Sheraton Princess Ka‘iulani, Waikīkī
Sundays, Nov. 20, Dec. 4, Dec. 11 and Dec. 18, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Motherwit Co. is Having a Free Talk Story and Tasting
New and soon-to-be-mamas, heads up! Motherwit Co. is a service designed to help feed postpartum families via weekly food delivery. On Nov. 3, you can learn more and sample healthy soups, muffins, muesli and teas, an event hosted by local, woman-owned construction and project management firm, QRSE.
A Cake Life’s Halloween Menu is To-Die-For 💀
The eerie-sistible treats are almost too cute to eat—almost. There are Halloween Cookie Kits that are perfect for a keiki party or a festive night in with the kiddos, the adorable Halloween Shortie Cake or Witches Brew Dessert Box to bring to a spooky soiree, Halloween Cookie Cards that make perfect gifts for teachers or neighbors, and more. Bottom line? This award-winning Honolulu cake shop is killing the Halloween game.
