Aloha Friday

Kona Bay Hawaii to hold store-wide sale on Black Friday

Kona Bay Hawaii

Owner KC Kiuchi stumbled across his first Aloha shirt in 1987 in a... Read more »

Shop ThanksGetting Day at Ala Moana Center

ThanksGetting Day at Ala Moana Center

Suit? Check. Belt? Check. Pointy hat?... Check.

You'll do anything to secure your spot on Santa's nice list. Even if it means taking on some of his "holiday deliveries," or as we like to call it: volunteer elf status.

There's no better way to channel the elves than by heading over to Ala Moana Center for ThanksGetting Day (i.e. the day after Thanksgiving). With more than 60 stores... Read more »

Town and Out

Local Black Friday sales abound in Downtown Shop Around

Downtown Shop Around


We don't know which is crazier: the shopping frenzy that is Black Friday or Miley Cyrus singing a "duet" with a giant, crying kitty. Avoid the former by taking advantage of the Downtown Shop Around, when nearly 20 local businesses offer up some of their... Read more »

Holiday gift ideas from Martin & MacArthur

Martin & MacArthur

What elegant, locally hand-crafted gift do you buy for the guy or girl who has everything?

Woodn't you like to know.

Seriously. We're talking about Martin & MacArthur's rich, curl-grain Koa wood that's privately grown and harvested on the Big Island and hand-crafted into luxe, you'll-have-it-forever keepsakes. Here are a few of our favorite finds:

Celebrate Thanksgiving at Royal Hawaiian Center

You probably caught it last year after The Great Thanksgiving Gate of 2012 (let's just say deep frying the turkey was a touch more complicated than it sounded). Now the idea of cooking Thanksgiving dinner is enough to turn your beans green.

Better make an appointment to... Read more »
