On Saturday February 15th we wrapped up Pow Wow Hawaii 2014 weekend. It was an intense block party with thousands in attendance. The streets were packed with Honolulu Night Market party goers, artists, vendors and so much more.


We managed to snap a few photos in the madness, but these photos in no way do justice to just how awesome of an event it was.  Check out our photos below.

Anti Canvas at Honolulu Night Market



Anti Canvas at Honolulu Night Market

This past weekend, Honolulu Night Market hosted the 5th annual Anti Canvas boardshort charity art event, and we went down during the set up to give you a look at tsome of the submissions.



Hurley and Contrast Magazine presented the 5th annual The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity on Saturday December 21, 2013 at Honolulu Night Market: Rogue Christmas

 Proceeds benefitted Waves For Water and their efforts in the Philippines with victims of Typhoon Haiyan as well as the Hawaii Foodbank. Entry is free and doors open at 6 pm for the art show and silent auction.

The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity utilizes “sublimation” to transfer original artwork from 25 local and international artists onto a pair of Hurley Phantom boardshorts. This manufacturing method preserves the integrity and details of the original artwork and designs. Some of the top artists this year include John John Florence, Clark Little, C.R. Stecyk III, Tim Hendricks, Keoni Payton, Aaron Kai, Carl Pao and Dana Paresa. Please find a full list of artists participating in the 5th annual The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity below.

This unique art event raised over $18,000 dollars for various charities since 2009.

Heres a look at a couple of this years submissions.

Guest Blog: “Girlfriend Dates… Cicily Goes to the Honolulu Night Market”



Guest Blog: “Girlfriend Dates… Cicily Goes to the Honolulu Night Market”

 Kakaako Mural

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” 
Eleanor Roosevelt

Over the summer, thanks to a girl’s night out, I discovered a monthly block party held in Honolulu’s Kakaako district.  It was here that I found our island’s hidden gem.  Tucked in between bustling Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, Kakaako is now home to a Hawaiian hipster’s paradise.

“Girlfriend Dates… Cicily Goes to the Honolulu Night Market”

I ABSOLUTELY fell in love with the young, bohemian vibe of the Honolulu Night Market. It was as if, I was strolling through New York City’s artistic Greenwich Village or SOHO. As I walking through the crowds, I had noticed people were commenting on how “hip” the Honolulu Market Night Market had been.

Packed With Excitement

Earlier this month, I had noticed on my Facebook and Twitter feed, that there was another Honolulu Night Market evening, planned for the month of November. Realizing that my son would be with his father for the weekend, this single mama immediately called her best friend to make another “Girlfriend Date” for the Honolulu Night Market.

I live on the other side of the island and I am not too keen on driving into town. HOWEVER, I will ALWAYS make an exception, for the monthly trek to Kakaako, The Honolulu Night Market is an amazing block celebration, that ensures guaranteed fun, AMAZEBALLS food, live music, local art, shopping and mingling with Honolulu’s hip, young crowd.

It doesn’t matter if you bring a date, family, friends or you are riding solo, Kakaako’s Honolulu Night Market has something for everyone.

There is something intoxicating about the aroma from the food trucks, brightly colored murals sprinkled throughout the neighborhood, dancing to live music, seeing the latest fashions during on the runway stage and people watching while strolling the main street.

Much like my first adventures at the Honolulu Night Market, I had another great evening!  Not only did I have a fun night on the town with my best friend, I also managed to knock out some much needed Christmas shopping, with all the local clothing vendors, smack dab in the middle of it all.

Christmas is just a few weeks away and Santa needs to still fill a few more stockings, so you better believe I will be at the next Honolulu Night Market.  I LOVED that my favorite FILTHY FARMGIRL soap company, will be there, carrying over 95 different soaps at the actual Market, as opposed to only a handful at Whole Foods.

I am counting the days, till I get to eat Buenos Antojitos’ authentic Puerto Rican Shrimp Empanadas on my next evening out. As a former Miami girl, I must say, her empanadas were so AMAZING.  Before I left for the evening, I went back for seconds because it was THAT GOOD.

For all my single Honolulu folks out there, the Honolulu Night Market is a great opportunity to meet new people.  While sipping on some libations, in the “bar” area, I made friends with some surfers visiting from Sydney, Australia.  By the end of the night, I even had an invite to check out a film festival, in China Town, after the event. What better way to spend a Saturday evening!

Ride in style to Honolulu Night Market: Splurge



Ride in style to Honolulu Night Market: Splurge

Want a ride to or from Honolulu Night Market: Splurge? Sign up as a new Uber user and your first ride is on us.  No fighting traffic, no looking for street parking. Arrive in style with Uber Honolulu.
That’s right, sign up using that link and get $20 off your first ride. (if you’re coming from anywhere between Kaimuki and Downtown, that ride is FREE). When you sign up using the link above, $20 will be credited to your Uber account immediately.

If you’re not already familiar with Uber, get familiar, because they are changing the way people look at the  traditional concept of a taxi service and putting you in full control of your experience.

  • One Tap To Ride – The Uber mobile phone app revolutionizes the way you get picked up. Uber uses your phone’s GPS to detect your location and connects you with the nearest available driver. Get picked up anywhere — even if you don’t know the exact address.
  • Reliable Pickups – Track the drivers exact location as they come to pick you up. The Uber mobile app shows their GPS location on a map in real time, as well as the Name/Photo of your driver and their Vehicle information (make/model and license number). But, if you don’t want to stare at your phone while they come to get you, you don’t have to. The will send you a text message when they arrive.
  • Clear Pricing - The app displays the rates clearly, and there are no hidden fees. You can also enter your pick up location and destination for a free fare quote for your whole trip. This is one of my personal favorite features. I wish The Cab offered this information.
  • Paperless & Convinent - By far my favorite feature is that when you arrive at your destination, you simply get out of the car and go. No fumbling for your wallet. No waiting for their in-car credit card machine to process, then finding some uncomfortable way to sign the paper receipt for your transaction. No digging through your purse or wallet in a dark taxi trying to decide if that’s a $1 or a $10 in your hand.
    Once you arrive at your destination, your credit card is automatically charged for the trip, and you are emailed a receipt. You don’t have to do a thing. Just get out and enjoy your night.
  • Rate Your Driver - Uber makes sure their drivers not only meet their standards, but that they meet your standards too. After your trip, you can rate your experience and leave additional feedback about your driver. You can even see the drivers average rating from the app when they come to get you.
  • Split Fare - They even make it easy to split the fare between you and your friends with a couple of clicks in their app. No more “I’ll pay you back’s” or IOU’s. Split the cost of the ride, and everyones card is billed equally.

With 4 years of service, they have finally brought their concept here to Honolulu, and now YOU have a chance to try it for FREE to or from Eat The Street.
Go to and sign up with Uber Honolulu.
By using that link you get a free ride to/from Eat The Street: Musubi on us. FREE rides to or from #HNLnightmarket up to $20
[ If youre coming from between River St (downtown) and Kapahulu Ave (waikiki) you should not get close to the $20 limit. If you are outside of that area, you will receive $20 off your first ride with Uber. Cant beat that.]
