Thursdays in Hawaii because I am already planning for the long weekend!

Yes, its a weeklong daily countdown to memorial day weekend. Today, let's jump on that Hawiian Airlines flight and go to Hawaii.

On Thursday, May 1st its Lei Day ! The festivities take place over five different locations including Queen Kapiolani Park, Kawaiaha'o Church, and Kapolei Hale. This is a great event for family and friends and the community as whole. I may even try to celebrate here in the states and give all my teammates some lei's :)

The Royal Hawiian Band will be playing at the Royal Hawaiian Center at 1pm. Located at 2201 Kalakaua Avenue in Honolulu. The Royal Hawaiian Band was established 1836 by King Kamehameha. This is a great event!

Tuesday Let's Check Out New York

If you haven't been paying attention I am counting down to three days when the only piece of clothing I will wear are commonly referred to pajamas...daddy taught me well.

As Memorial Day weekend is some official slash unofficial kick off to Summer ( and not Cinco de Mayo???) let's be serious and see what we can do on the Tuesdays up to Memorial Day in New York because I know you wanna go there ( so do I!?!)

On Tuesday, April 29th you can enjoy the Montclair Film Festival  at the Bellevue Theaters ( 1 and 2) and Clairidge Cinema 2 along a showing at The Audible Lounge. This Third (3rd) Annual Festival showcases a lot of films and has 100 conversations with a lot of people but don't talk during the film okay that is just rude.

The Tuesday after Cinco de Mayo is usually one big blurry hangover but if you find yourself in New York check out Brooklyn Magazine 5x10 (five by ten) Talks at the BRIC House located at 647 Fulton Street in Brooklyn starting at 7:30PM you will find out "What's Next?" with the people from MakerBot, BrooklyNets, Video Music Box and more. Trust me buy your tickets NOW !

If you don't know fashion then you need to attend the Animal Fair's 12th Annual Paws for Style Fashion show at Pacha benefiting the Humane Society of New York. Hundred and Fifty ($150) Dollar Ticket is totally worthwhile way to spend your evening on Tuesday, May 13th, trust me I know this to be true.

If you don't have copious amounts of sunscreen, suntan and zinc oxide in advance of Memorial Day weekend it is not my fault because you were too busy Tuesday night ( Tuesday, May 20th to be exact) learning about silversmithing ( why does that sound like a great 90's grunge band name? Anybody? ..Just me ? oh well )
This introduction course taught at Liloveve ( again a great female singer rock band from the 80's ...anyone agree? anyone? Ok just me AGAIN!) for those looking to create handmade jewelry with basic and techniques that will help bring fire to your passion for all things silver.

That is what you can do Tuesday nights in New York ...seriously awesome band names.
