Weekend Picks – Saturday, February 23, 2013
Late adds to Lei Chic's guide to the weekend's best events
What: After nearly a month, Milk & Honey is back in business. The Smith St. location is no more; instead, the boutique has taken up residence inside the Blaisdell Hotel on busy Fort Street Mall, opting for better security and proximity to Hawaii Pacific University. After completely missing the entrance on our first pass (apparently, we're still relative newbies to the area), we took a quick trip up the state's last manually operated elevator; and yes, its operator, Javi, already knew where we were headed. The shop itself requires a few more finishing touches, but you can still pick up stylish finds from Keepsake, MM Couture, Fluro Swimwear, Report, House of Harlow 1960, and more.
When: Tuesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Where: 1154 Fort Street Mall, 3rd Floor.
What: Dishcrawl is back! This time foodies will explore its most requested neighborhood: Kapahulu. Join the group as it hits four local eateries along the strip (the stops are a surprise, but we suspect Leonard's Bakery will be one of them). Plus, enter to win fun prizes and gift cards from the social review site Gogobot.
When: Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Where: Ticket holders will be emailed the first meeting location 48 hours prior to the event.
Details: $45, vegetarian options available. Click here to buy tickets online.
- Sure, Bruno Mars did an admirable job, but the king of hosts-slash-musical guests (a.k.a. Justin Timberlake) is returning to reclaim his throne. Set your DVRs for March 9, ladies, then relive his best SNL moments here.
- Rebecca Taylor's spring collection includes a nod to the islands. The Hawaii Zip Jacket blends a silky floral "Hawaiian" print with a sharply cut tuxedo blazer. Buy, or simply admire, it here.
