What to Buy

Anyone interested in quality Hawaiian shirts should visit Tori Richard, a Honolulu fixture that opened in 1956 and has six branches. Vintage Hawaiiana—tiki mugs, hula dolls, posters—brings collectors to Tin Can Mailman, a store in Chinatown.

Arts and Crafts

There may be no better place than Arts at Mark’s Garage for an overview of what local artisans and artists are producing, from photography and watercolors to music and theater. This community arts center in Chinatown also is a sponsor of First Friday Honolulu, a grab bag of special arts events and refreshments on Kamani Street.

You may recognize the work of Pegge Hopper—her richly colored paintings of island women adorn numerous hotels in Hawaii—but it’s at her 
Chinatown studio that the softly silhouetted portraits really shine. Cedar Street Galleries focuses on established and emerging area artists such as Geoff Lee, who is known for his glass creations.

Local’s Beach

Reading celebrity gossip is my guilty pleasure... lol.
Are you guys (who post pictures) the photographers, or do you find them on other sites to post here?
Saw Sinbad today, at a tropical fish store in Chatsworth. He'll be back there on Saturday to drop off his 9ft boa that they are going to sell for him. Couldn't figure out why he looked so familiar, so I said "You look so familiar..." and he replied that it's because he's always in the store. Then someone called his name from the back of the store and he laughed and said "Or maybe you've seen me somewhere else" Ha! I felt like an idiot, but at least I wasn't gushing at him or something equally annoying; we just talked snakes & reptiles while they finished my sale & his paperwork about the snake
