We’re closing out May with a delicious bang and greeting June with some wine. There’s a great lineup of events every day this weekend!
Over 60 independent artists, vintage collectors, DIYers, food trucks, crafters and fashion designers are featured each month, drawing an eclectic crowd of shoppers and art and music lovers. It’s not all about shopping: There’ll be up-and-coming bands, your favorite local DJs, and probably a food contest.
This month’s theme for Honolulu’s massive street food fest celebrates the local and Hawaiian touches in our island cuisine. Eat the Street Hawaii features 40+ food trucks and vendors, entertainment and happy hour specials, all at a new location at Kakaako Waterfront Park.
The American Heart Association’s new young professionals event, beat, is a party with a purpose. The affair is an opportunity to mix business with pleasure, with a goal of raising $60,000 to support the Association’s mission. Enjoy entertainment by The Bentos featuring Ian O’Sullivan and Big Mox, New York City DJ Chi Duly, fashion by Avanti Shirts and Waikiki Love, Slo-mo Booth Hawaii, a pop-up auction and more.
Sunday, May 31
12 to 3 p.m.
MW Restaurant teams up with the Tea Chest, which specializes in organic locally grown teas, for an afternoon of exclusive teas, iced tea cocktails and tea-inspired savory and sweet dishes. Think tea-braised pork belly, foie gras torchon with Assam tea and a strawberries and cream lychee acai tea panna cotta, plus a dozen more. In a five-course menu or a la carte small plates, eat in or to go.
12AG wine director Rick Lilley traveled to the Central Coast’s Tyler Winery last fall to create the restaurant’s signature pinot noir blend with winemaker and owner Justin Willett. The dinner introduces the new cuvee and four wines by Tyler Winery, paired with dishes by chef Jason Schoonover.
