Details: $250 per couple. Make a reservation on Open Table or call (808) 951-3420.

Buy a ticket to the Closet Swap now (a Best of HONOLULU event for 2012!) , drop off your new or gently used clothes to Fashionista's Market in September, then come October, you can paw through racks of new-to-you items plus a few hidden surprises, attend designer seminars and a fashion show, then take home your awesome finds. All remaining items go to the Leeward Domestic Abuse Shelter and Goodwill Industries of Hawaii.
