Starbucks Haupia Nitro, a Hawaii Exclusive

The Starbucks Reserve Roastery location in the Waikiki Trade Center is the only place in all of America where you can order a Haupia Nitro. Yup, that’s a nitro cold brew infused with a coconut blended mixture. The walls of the special Reserve cup are lined with condensed milk (I think), and the finished drink […]

Is the Dress for Less Store headed to Windward Mall? If so, the last of the OG malls would have a Ross location. First was Pearlridge then Kahala. The Ala Moana location was a recent addition, and 2018 could welcome the former Sports Authority space in Windward Mall.

Askhole, Know Any?

Saw this shirt at The Refinery in Kahala Mall that defines an “askhole.” Do you know any? A person who constantly asks for your advice, yet always does the exact opposite.

Where Were You?

Where were you when the (thankfully) false ballistic missile launch sounded? Me – eating breakfast waffles at home. Although a mistake, I’m sure awareness of what to do in this situation is definitely heightened and more people will get prepared Mentioned by The Verge. Yahoo News also reported on Twitter but with a mismatching image.

Catnip Hotel, I’m Intrigued

I must admit that the advertising for the Catnip hotel has me intrigued. I don’t know what pheromone therapy is but more importantly, I really want to know what movies are shown on the big screen for the cats.

One bottle POG. No palu allowed. Three minutes. Ten contestants. The most poke eaten determines the winner. Utensils optional. From what I […]

Comings and Goings at Ala Moana

While at Ala Moana today, I saw some changes happening. There’s a new coffee place, Island Brew, where Gloria Jeans was. Not so sure about this choice since um, Gloria Jeans went out of business seemingly not too long after opening. While we wish Island Brew good luck, we also need to say farewell to […]

Must Eat at Ramen Bario
