Turk-ish Delight

What: You’ve drooled over the photos, now shop Banana Republic’s exclusive capsule collection by designer Trina Turk. Even better, stop by the launch party at Ala Moana Center and use your Banana Republic, Gap or Old Navy card to get $25 off your purchase of $100 or more and score a limited edition Trina Turk bracelet while supplies last.

When: Today, 5-9 p.m.

Where: Banana Republic at Ala Moana Center only.

Details: Sign up for a card in-store to receive the same discount.


Make a Scene

What: Want to test out a new joke? Try your hand at slam poetry? Find out if your singing sounds just as good outside the shower? At ChadLou’s new open mic night, you’ll get a working microphone and a (relatively) gentle audience in a casual, coffee house setting.

When: Tomorrow, 5-8 p.m.

Where: ChadLou’s, 45 Kihapai St.

Details: Stop by ChadLou’s or send an email to sign up.
