Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

Had a successful weekend in our booth at the Hawaii Ocean Expo. Great first trade show experience as a vendor. Good fun! Can't wait to do it again! Click here to view some of the scenes from that day: VH07V at the Hawaii Ocean Expo (photos).

We were even covered by various media outlets, including a Japanese company called Hawaii Web TV. Here's a link to their story "オーシャン・エキスポ (Ocean Expo 2012)の撮影裏話".

Naturally, this week's "Spotted" shot for VH07V is from Hawaii Web TV's article above.

Green River... Wea You Stay?

April 19th, 2012

Yesterday, the brother-in-law told me he's on a mission to find restaurants that still serve Green River so that he can reminisce back to the days when he used to drink it at Jolly Roger... I told him that I knew that Meg's Drive In had it and I think Sekiya's might still have it, but didn't know of any place else. So I posted the question out to Facebook and Twitter and collected a few more locales, but I wanted to throw it out to my homeys on WWE as well to see if you guys had any suggestions as to where else he can go to stir up some nostalgia.

So wot? Where can the BIL get his Green River fix?

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

The time has finally arrived! We're just three short days away from the 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo where I'll be debuting the VH07V booth. The show is at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall and runs from Saturday, April 21st (9am-7:30pm) through Sunday, April 22nd (9am-5pm). If anybody has any expertise in booth design, or even just doing trade shows in general, please help a brutha out! :P

We're cutting it pretty close, but all three vendors (tees, hats, and stickers) assure me that my orders will be ready in time for the show. I plan on having CHOKE quantities and styles, with show only discounts, so come on down and say "Hi!" if you can k?

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

We're still on track for my first ever trade show appearance at the 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo - on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.

Orders for hats and adult tees (including a new color combo) are in, as is the keiki and lady's lines! The Banner is in progress and I still have to order additional stickers soon. Business cards are pau!

This week's "Spotted" shot for VH07V is actually one of me. Sorry! LOL! It's a shot from a testimonial spot we filmed for Lanakila Pacific Custom Products, who is actually taking the lead on my keiki and women's stuff for this order. I've been so involved with Lanakila Pacific, from doing routes for their Meals on Wheels program, catering events for work from their Lanakila Kitchen, to participating in their annual Good Table event, that I almost feel like family. Heck, Lanakila Pacific is even the primary beneficiary of Rice Fest, the annual event I co-founded. It only made perfect sense to go through Lanakila Custom Products for my screening needs.
