VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week's "Spotted", we got another video sighting of VH07V. Real estate extraordinaire, island entertainer, and all around nice guy Jon Yamasato recently wore his Blue/White Logo VH07V shirt on his popular HI*Sessions Youtube show. Check that entire Youtube channel out! Awesome resource for local Hawaiian music!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Ever since columnist Alana Folen covered VH07V in last week's MidWeek, (new) business has been picking up some steam. Big mahalos to Alana and the rest of the team at MidWeek!

* Moved into my much cozier/spacious/convenient storage space at Hawaii Self Storage. Got a lot more elbow room now to fill up with additional inventory, fold clothes and fulfill orders l'dat! Mahalos to the friendly staff at HSS!

* VH07V will be sponsoring this year's Rice Fest (duh!), but the even more exciting part is that in addition to having a booth there to sell VH07V merch galore, I will printing up the official Rice Fest shirts for this year which will be worn by all volunteers. Another version of the shirt will also be sold at the VH07V booth with part of the proceeds going back to our main beneficiary: Lanakila Meals on Wheels!

* May have another potential "giving back" type of project in the works, but I don't really want to talk about that yet in case it doesn't happen. More on that to come.

* Got some exciting things cooking lately including new designs/styles for shirts/tops, new hats, and more! Speaking of which, here's another unofficial survey for y'all! What do you guys think of the following hat samples? Will probably go forward with the more popular one(s).

3rd Annual Rice Fest!

It's that time of year again! As one of the Rice Fest co-founders, I feel that it is my duty to pester da heck outta you guys until you show up at the event. 8) This year, we're excited to be having it at Ward Centers (in the parking lot area near Menchies off Auahi). More on the details of the day's activities, but you can be sure that we'll have the best rice-oriented food booths, cooking demonstrations, the SPAM musubi eating contest, and the breaking of the Guinness World Record for Largest SPAM musubi... Again! Hope to see y'all there!
