I had to do a double take after seeing the 2014 Scion iQ on the road. It’s so tiny and small that I wondered if secretly there was a moped under the exterior. Seriously, two of those cars could quite well fit into a single parking stall. So really, is there a moped under there?
This time it’s for real. The Starbucks launch of the Clover Brewing System in select locations happened today, Thursday, October 23, 2014. There were a few months of Clover teasing, but today was the official day. What’s on the Clover menu? Here’s what you can order, and yes, a grande of Jamaica Blue Mountain is […]
I had not heard of S’well bottles until today when I walked into Starbucks and saw these somewhat-out-of-place vibrant orange bottles. On one side it said S’well, on the other was a picture of the Hawaiian islands along with the text Starbucks Hawaii. Swell bottles are stainless steel and double insulated like many others out […]
While it’s still some time before the Target in Kailua opens for business, its well known red logo is installed and is very visible. Never mind that there’s no sidewalk or parking lot currently.
In Portland, Oregon, Starbucks fans can pre-order and pay for their drink using their mobile devices. The Midwest has already experienced the new forthcoming holiday drink, the Chestnut Praline Latte or CPL. In Hawaii, well, we have the Hawaii Oat Cake. Yes, an oat cake. How exciting. On a backhanded positive note, our state is […]
I wish I had the radio advertisement for Zula to play back for you since really it says it all. A local style workout DVD featuring all Hawaiian kine music. The perfect gift for your friends on the mainland! Okay, really, that’s all I know about Zula which I’m guessing is a word mashed up […]
Kendric Lamar’s new song, i, has been selected as the NBA’s official anthem for the 2014-2015 season. Take a listen…
Upgrading to iOS 8.1 was easy enough, but then what do I do with an Apple Pay enabled iPhone 6? You try it out on a break room vending machine, and amazingly Apple Pay worked! First, I had to setup Apple Pay, associating my iTunes information for payment. Then I walked by the vending machine […]
If you’re on Santa’s Nice List, you have to ask for the Powerbeats2 Wireless. Because once you get these and start reminiscing about the past then you’re two-thirds the way to an awesome physique. Check out LeBron James as an example. Pair of the Powerbeats2 Wireless? Check. Remembering his heritage and returning home. Check and […]
Over the fall break, we were in the Nimitz area and decided to check out the new-ish location of Liliha Bakery. This new spot is a welcomed addition to alleviate the strain on the historic original, but this location was equally as crowded. I can’t say parking is any better or worse. There’s a limited […]
October 2014 in Hawaii is becoming Oc-Clover with Starbucks finally making the Clover brewing system available on-island. Starting on Thursday, October 23, select Clover locations will fire up their machines (with trained personnel).
See that little placard on the ground? It’s repeatedly placed every ten feet or so in the Ward area. What’s it say? Private property Permission to use Revocable At any time I’m guessing that line on the ground separates the public sidewalk from the private property. So you can hang out behind the line (and […]
