Lei ChicBuy
Shop Till You Pop
Day one of the Lei Chic Mercedes Benz Pop-Up Boutique was very busy, so here is what you need to know for day two.
• Arrive early. Some of our designers are already running low on inventory.
• Parking is tight, so be ready to do some searching around in our suggested areas.
• The eats will begin a little later (probably around 11 a.m.) and the food goes fast. We’ll be bringing in tasty chicken karaage and sushi from Hale Aina Award winner Shokudo, mini chocolate pyramids from another Hale Aina Award Winner Chef JJ Luangkhot of JJ’s  Bistro & French Pastry and Le Cacao Bistro, and as an added bonus for shoppers Bliss Bakery will be have a little something sweet (we hear Kathy Masunaga’s famed brownies may be on the menu).
• Imbibe Hawaii has your morning covered with its special Bloody Mary blend, available for the first time at the Boutique today.
• And we know you love deals so here is one more for you.
