Scenic Hawaii Photos

January 30th, 2012

I need your help y'all!

The other day, I asked a question that I thought might be a good topic for da akamai WWE `ohana. In preparation for marketing for my new clothing line, I was thinking of taking photos of some models/regular folks, wearing da shirts, with a nice, "scenic Hawaii" kine backdrop in the background. I came up with a few ideas, but wanted to reach out to my homeys (YOU!) to see if you had any other suggestions. And of course... FREE shirts and stickers to all ideas I end up using! Who knows? Maybe you can even model in the shot (if you not shame)!? ;)

Anyway, here are a few ideas that I thought might be cool. It should kinda answer the question, "When you think of Hawaii, what do you picture in your mind?" Add your ideas in the comment area below please. You da bes! :)

  • Sunrise shot on Lanikai Beach
  • Kids eating shave ice
  • Kanikapila scene
  • Fishermen/Fisherwomen fishing off a rocky shore

Speaking of models, if you have any connections to hotties (women and men), or even non-professional, everyday (cute) looking folks, holla! If you wanna be a model too, let a brutha know below. Shoots! Thanks guys!

Weekly T-Shirt Update!

No T-shirt updates since Monday's post on the new Nico's Pier 38 Restaurant & Fish Market, so I'll just repeat what I wrote there in case ya missed it...

The graphic/screen designer suggested that the artwork on the front be 12" (instead of the original 9" or 10") so we went with what he suggested since he's the pro after all. Hopefully it turns out OK.

Stickers! I've been passing them out to my closer group of friends so you may start seeing them here and there (hopefully). If you see them, or, if you get one from me, please take a photo of it in action (where it's stuck on) for me. I'm collecting it for the Facebook page. :)

Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y'all! Shoooots!

New Nico's Pier 38 Restaurant & Fish Market Open for Business!

January 23rd, 2012
By



Yes, it's a rare Monday post, but this one is for good reason. It combines several of my loves in one!

  • Fresh Poke - check!
  • Ono Kine Grindz - check!
  • AND... a "New" Restaurant announcement - check!

I put "new" in quotes because Nico's Pier 38's owner Nicolas Chaize is no stranger to the restaurant biz. His original restaurant has been in business for almost 8 years. Now, located practically across the street diagonally, his new restaurant is three times the size and even includes a fresh fish market! Can't get any fresher fish than that!

The soft launch was last week Thursday (01/19/12) and already on Friday (01/20/12), without any advertising or fanfare, the new Nico's was PACKED. Here are some scenes from that day...

Now with new dinner hours (5pm-9pm), I can see this bar - with a beautiful view overlooking the ocean - getting a lot of action.

HUGE! They even have bottled drinks, coffee, bait, and a small selection of market type products (e.g. sugar, SPAM, sauces, chips, noodles, etc.)

Since the restaurant and fish market are practically located on the pier, the fish is as fresh as you can get! (Read my poke article covering the United Fishing Agency Honolulu Fish Auction at Pier 38).

Weekly T-Shirt Update!

Woo hoo! The artwork is with the designer who will be turning it into the actual screens that will be used. Once the screener gets them back, we'll be ready to go to print. Hopefully that'll be in the next few days/weeks! *fingers crossed* I added a little something different to the back, which I think makes it a little unique. Hopefully you guys like it.

Stickers! I picked up the stickers last week and they came out pretty sick! They are available in white, blue and pink. If anybody wants any... OR... if you can think of a good game for us to play to give them away, let me know. I'll probably be pushing them hard(er) as soon as I get the shirts in. That way I can do errrrthing at once. Exciting!

Weekly T-Shirt Update!

No new updates other than more specifics on the shirts. There will be two shirt colors (black and blue) in all sizes (S-XXXL, up to XXL for blue). There will be two styles for each colored shirt. The logo will either be solid white or a solid light green color on the chest, which goes well on the back and/or blue shirts if I do say so myself. :P It'll probably go to print in the next few days! Winners, I gotcho back!

I'm doing stickers too!. I'll have them in white, blue and pink (for the ladies... Haaaay!). I should be getting those in some time next week! Will be doing giveaways for those as well! Stay tuned!
