The stars were out (it was still cold) on Saturday at the Downtown Lihu‘e Night Market, as Krystl Apeles (she and Market Manager Lexi Jones had mu‘umu‘u on) of Alakoko Store welcomed Pat Griffin, Shannon Hiramoto and the walking tour of Lihu‘e (even Charlie Hiramoto took that in) to a post-walk gathering at the special alleyway … have you gotten your tickets for the upcoming pa‘ina luncheon that benefits the Kaua‘i Historical Society?
People were scrambling to be first in line at the Lickety Louie booth for their doggie treats (must be really good to sell out from Christmas), and Tommy Noyes and the Bikes on Rice ‘ohana enjoyed a “slow roll” to welcome 2024 … mahalo for parting with that fleet roller to replace someone’s bike that was pilfered at the airport.
Congratulations, D’Lissa Iannuci and Scotty’s Music (they’re open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. near The Fish Express) for the outreach to welcome 2024. Aaron Nakamura and Aldrine Guerrero of ‘Ukulele Underground were there, and Aldrine announced plans for a new ‘Ukulele Academy where people can go to learn how to play the four-stringed instrument … yes, Roy Sakuma retired, and Aldrine said he has plans to be involved in the “inaugural Kaua‘i ‘Ukulele Festival that will take place on April 14 at Kukui Grove Center … more details about that shindig coming soon.
