Holoholo Weekly: GalleryHNL, Pearl Harbor, and Hawaii Food and Wine Festival 2015

Holoholo Weekly is a compilation of stories and tidbits that we’ve collected from around the web. It’s like a weekly mystery grab bag of Hawaii related goodness, featuring different articles of interest, fun images, videos, products, deals, downloads, and more.

This week’s Pick of the Week is this Civil Beat article on GalleryHNL, a new venture aiming to make art profitable for Hawaii’s artists.

“Let’s cut to the chase,” Blackburn said. “The art scene in Hawaii is laughable. First Friday is a laughable event, nothing but a drinking spree. But the thing is, it shouldn’t be that way. The local population is not really embraced by the arts, and there’s a lot of reasons for that, but this is my chance to do something about it. I’m actually putting my money where my mouth is on this one.”

“The ship capsized after being hit by nine torpedoes during the Dec. 7, 1941. Altogether, 429 sailors and Marines onboard were killed. Only 35 were identified in the years immediately after.”

Never before seen Kamikaze artifacts were recently unveiled in a new exhibit at the Battleship Missouri.


Mokulele Airlines is offering $30 standby fares through the end of April. Only certain flights are included, and would-be passengers need to check the airline’s Twitter account to find the deals.
