San Jose Made are putting on the first, of what we hope to be many downtown vendor fair this Saturday from 1 to 7 pm inside the former Spiedo restaurant. Many new owners will know this area as across from Starbucks on San Pedro Square.

Mayberry Workshop has been using that space recently as its "pop-up" shop, selling graphic T-shirts.

They're sharing the space Friday with more than a dozen other retailers that sell T-shirts, accessories, jewelry and other apparel. Some of them have a physical location (like The Usuals on The Alameda), but most sell online only, so this is a good opportunity to get the word out.

Aloha Friday: Five New Restaurants for Royal Hawaiian Center, Waikiki

According to "Honolulu Magazine" online, five new restaurants are opening in the newly renovated Roayl Hawaiian Center in central Waikiki.

I think this is the retail and restaurant flagship for Waikiki, with tens of millions of dollars spent on renovations, it is gorgeous, open, well designed and people friendly.  I walk there often and frequent the Food Court in search of great food and bargain prices.  Anchored on one end by the new Lewers Street and Beachwalk renovated area, this whole area is a fun place to wander about, eat and shop, as well as people watch.
