Weekend Picks - March 6, 2008
Lei Chic’s guide to the weekend’s best events.
Last chance to see On The Beach at The Contemporary Museum
The sun sets Sunday for the collection of wall-sized beach scene photos by Robert Misrach. All the photos depict the same beach on Oahu’s south shore – look closely and you might recognize it. More info at www.tcmhi.org or 808.526.1322. Admission $5.
Lunch from Morton’s for $10
Cheap steak for your inner cheapskate. Get a plate lunch of grilled filet mignon served with rice and mac salad Friday in front of First Hawaiian Bank downtown. Half the price benefits American Red Cross – the lunch sale is part of their annual Hats Off fundraiser. Lunches sold at Bishop and King streets from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. as part of the Red Cross Hats Off event. Call 808.734.2101 for more info or visit www.hawaiiredcross.org
First Friday and Second Sunday in the same weekend
The calendar quirk only happens a couple times a year. Chinatown’s First Friday evening art walk and party and Kailua ’s Second Sunday afternoon gallery-and-boutique hop are the best times to mosey through these two neighborhoods. Friday, 5-9 p.m. in Chinatown; Sunday 2-5 p.m. in Kailua .
Two-Day Fashionista’s Market
The weekend sample sale (50-80 percent off designers like Frankie B and True Religion) includes a Friday-night shopping party with cocktails and beauty treatments and a Saturday morning session that is strictly shopping. Friday, 6-10 p.m. at Ala Moana Hotel, $30 admission, 21 and over only. Saturday, 10-2 at Japanese Cultural Center, $10 admission. More info at www.fashionistasmarket.com
