Our Fare City

www.leichic.comThere’s only so much you can figure out about a restaurant from looking at the menu or their professionally styled food photos.

And it’s often not the answer to your real question: Am I going to have a good meal and experience at this place?

For that, you need an expert source. A friend who eats out every night. Someone who knows the best dishes to order just about everywhere, and which places to flat-out avoid.

Something To Talk About

www.leichic.com

How many times have you had some variation of this conversation:

You: Where do you want to go tonight?

Your BFs: I don’t know, somewhere it isn’t too loud, the seats are comfy and the crowd is good. And not some super dress up scene-y nightclub. You know, a place we can chill and actually talk and have a drink.

You: Yeah. But where is that place?

Your BFs: I don’t know.

Seems like you have this little chat nearly every weekend, huh?

There's Something About Dairy

www.leichic.com

You: My fridge is filled with tomatoes, coffee, even chocolate grown here in Hawai‘i. What do I hafta do for milk from a lovely, amazingly talented Kama’aina cow like you?

Naked Cow: Are you buttering me up?

You: Of course not. But I am trying to milk you for all you’re worth.

Made from a yummy blend of flavored and essential oils, the smooth, moisturizing balms taste and smell just like your favorite sweetened shots and fruity mixed drinks.

Prints Charming

www.leichic.comWhen you were a kid, you only wore your birthstone ring when tutu came to visit.  The thought of that clunky ID bracelet you got from your junior high boyfriend makes you cringe.  And although you love love love your name necklace, it made you feel a bit icky when that Members Only jacket-wearing sleaze at the bar started calling you by name.
