    TAP Project week 

    TAP Project kicks off again this week.  The TAP Project initiative is a part of UNICEF’s goal to provide clean, drinkable water to those less fortunate.

    How this works is that as a patron at participating restaurants, you would donate a $1 or more for the water that you would receive gratis.  This money will go to the TAP Water fund and help build wells for those who don’t have ready access to clean water.

    Participating restaurants in Hawaii include all Big City Diner locations, Duke’s Waikiki, JJ Dolan’s, thirtyninehotel, The Wedding Cafe, Tiki’s Bar and Grill, and may more locations.

    This initiative runs from today through March 28th.

    To find out more about the TAP Project and the full listing of locations that are participating in this, check out http://tapprojecthawaii.com/index.html

Large, chunky zippers, stash pockets, a laptop sleeve and a spacious front compartment.  This is one back that works well with the schoolhouse, the workhouse, and the beach house.  This backpack comes in two dope styles: the smoothed out all-black everything edition and the attention grabbing black with white leather accents.  Both colorways feature the traditional Kicks/HI Orange Label tag and an orange stash pocket zipper.

    This is definitely gonna go fast, so make sure you get on it now before it gets got by someone else.

    St. Patrick’s Day Block Party in Chinatown 

    It’s St. Patrick’s Day, so you know there’s gonna be some drunken debauchery tonight at all the bar spots. The biggest spot of them all being Murphy’s on Merchant St.

    The block party overtakes all of Merchant and even spills into the parking lot adjacent to the block.

    If that gets too crazy for you, there’s also some block party action at Aloha Tower down the street. Either way, the party should still be going on after you get done with work.

    Both block parties get going around 4pm, but knowing the Chinatown diehards, they’re probaby drinking right now.
