The first day at the brand new Kith flagship location in Hawaii started not on the publicized opening day of Friday, August 20 (which is also Hawaii Admission Day) but rather on Thursday evening. All week, the excitement intensified after the formal accouncement was made that Hawaii would be the fourth US state to have […]

Went back to Kith Hawaii for a third day to see what non-AF1 shoes were available. Since almost everyone was buying the launch exclusive Air Force 1, most of the great sneaker selection upstairs was untouched. But… the line up at the entrance was full with wristbands up to 1000. So instead, I sampled their […]
Of course it was too good to be true. Since the re-release of the Yeezy 350 Beluga, I don’t recall any Hawaii Footlockers doing in-app reservations for any hyped shoe release. That’s why it was both surprising and refreshing when the upcoming Yeezy 350 Cloud White showed up as a reservation for the Ala Moana […]
Yes, hypewear purveyor Kith is coming to Hawaii but only for a moment. On Friday, August 2, 2019, Kith is opening a pop-up store in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center in Waikiki but how long this pop-up will stay in Hawaii is not known.

$7 for parking in the Waikiki Shopping Plaza. I don’t care. Cash only. I don’t care. All the other eateries in Waikiki Yokocho. I don’t care (well not yet anyways). Our server mixed up one of our dishes. I don’t care. Kinda pricey. I don’t care. All I care about is that ramen broth, specifically […]
I think I was wrong. The “B” in B. Patisserie may not stand for “box” but rather “bucks” as in we spend big bucks whenever we pay a visit.
Oh I forgot, but there was one tiny disappointment on my first visit to the Nordstrom Rack in Waikiki, but more on that later. Unbeknownst to me, this location was open from late 2016! Anyways, a smart marketing ploy of two $5 store credits got me in the store in early 2017, and there was a […]
It should have been obvious. After three visits to B. Patisserie for in-store treats, we’ve always come home with a box of even more goodies. So of course, the “B” must stand for box.
Before the big game, we headed to the International Marketplace in Waikiki for some shopping. This was my first time back since that almost perfect night. But since then, the parking rates have been adjusted. Two things I had not known before today. Crazy Shirts at the Marketplace has its own design for the shopping […]
A promise made, and a promise kept is deserving of praise, and yes, that’s for the International Market Place for addressing their parking rates. After near perfection, the management promised to make amends, and they have with their new parking rate structure in place for the Black Friday shopping weekend. Unfortunately, I don’t have a […]
Hold up. Let’s reconsider the essence of perfection. It’s not one static state but rather a continued journey upon which the International Market Place is on. You remember my almost perfect night at the Market Place, only marred by an exorbitant parking fee? Well, that has since been rectified and soon enough fixed for the […]
Update 11/21/2016: Wow, that was fast. Read how the International Market Place is striving for perfection. Almost. So close to the pinnacle of perfection was our first night at the renovated International Market Place in Waikiki. In the end, this ruined perfection. Yes, yes, we should have known better. This is Waikiki afterall, and the rates […]
