MANGOES AT THE MOANA
AT MOANA SURFRIDER, A WESTIN RESORT & SPA
We’re so excited about this event that there’s really only one thing to say: MANGOES. Moana Surfrider’s annual event features a daylong celebration of the world’s best fruit in a variety of activities. Our pick? Go to the Mango Throwdown, which takes place from noon to 4 p.m. ($6 per script or 10 tickets for $48). Eight local chefs, including Shaymus Alwin from Azure, Ron de Guzman from Stage and Lee Anne Wong of Koko Head Café, face off to create the best dish utilizing mangoes. moana-surfrider.com
HONOLULU NIGHT MARKET
AT 449 COOKE ST.
We’re always stoked for Honolulu Night Market, but this month in particular sounds especially fun because it’s all about pets! The theme, Dog Days of Summer, welcomes attendees to bring their furry friends. Pet-friendly vendors and treats will be scattered throughout the market. The night goes from 6 to 11 p.m., and as usual, there’s no cover charge. honolulunightmarket.com
