    SHAKE&POP x G.O.O.D. x Flip the Bird 

    Saturday night marks the beginning of the 2010 party season with the return of one of Chinatown’s most talked about parties: SHAKE&POP.

    The 2010 Premiere Edition will feature the sounds of G.O.O.D. Music in the form of GLC.  Speaking of good music, Hawaii’s favorite Tassho Pearce from the Flip the Bird crew will also be in the house performing live.

    Alongside of that will be the Super Handsome Sound of Delve1der, COMPOSE and Ssssssolution.

    Also, be on the lookout, as Saint Alfred has hooked up the event with some giveaways, so you know this one is gonna be crazy.

    This all goes down this Saturday night at thirtynine hotel. This is a 21+ event (sorry, kids) and the doors open at 9pm. Get there early and enjoy a special $7 cover at the door ($10 after 11pm).

    Give It Fresh Today 

    Some of you may have seen LOFA’s post about this new organization helping out the community at large at the KCC Farmer’s Market on Saturday.  The organization is called “Give It Fresh Today” and it seeks to help feed Hawaii’s homeless community through the fresh fruits and vegetables available in through locally grown outlets.

    The premise is simple: most food donation and help the homeless organizations hold food drives and call for mostly packaged and canned goods.  Give It Fresh Today takes the helping hand a step further and not only helps the homeless and less fortunate, but also provides them with fresh food that will help contribute to their health and wellness.  This helps out not only the less fortunate, but also the local agriculture scene.  The fresh produce is provided by local farmers, keeping local food in local hands, keeping local money from leaving the island.  The more money stays in state, the better our economy gets, the better off everyone will be in the long run. It takes the idea of “keeping it local” to another level.

    This worthwhile charity sets up their tent every Saturday at the Kapiolani Community College Farmer’s Market from 730am-11am. So, please stop by and make a donation. Tell them atypicalLIVING sent you.

    For more information or to volunteer at the tent, email giveitfreshtoday@gmail.com

      I just wanted to clarify that we accept donations from the public-at-large, the shoppers at the farmer’s market and folks who want to make donations from trees and plants they have at home. The farmers do their part by raising the food, and some have chosen to make donations. Farms that have donated include Aloun Farms, Nalo Farms, and Ma’o Organic Farms. =)
