Gettin' Ready

OK, it looks like we're getting closer to having an actual BMX track on Oahu again. I've heard rumors about one in Kalihi as well but I know about one on Sand Island . . . would that be considered Kalihi? Anyway, the ABA is sending over one of their track builders to get the ball rolling on the 20th of next month. They'll need volunteers starting on the 22nd to do raking and basic smoothing of the track. Even if you don't race or have any plans to, I think it would be a good sign of solidarity in the Hawaii BMX community if you came down and helped out. They'll need a bunch of people that can bring shovels and/or rakes and who aren't afraid of a little hardwork. Please comment with your thoughts. Let us know if you're down.

S&M/Nui LTF's are being delivered!!

All the naysayers aside, the new Hawaii Edition S&M/Nui Arts Project LTF's have already started shipping AND arriving in peoples' dirty little paws. These things are smokin' hot.

If you want one of the few left, hit up Tell him what size you want and we'll go from there.

This one is #27 of 50 and belongs to Lil' Wayne. Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity. You might not be able to live and ride in Hawaii, but you can ride a little bit of it.

The Quintessentials . . . Again!

Well . . . it's not the current Quintessentials. Les will be back in town for his honeymoon so we decided to play a reunion show on August 7th with some of the old members of the band. Hence the term "reunion". Jon and Dallas will be coming out as well as myself. We have False Crack, Pissfit, Dicks Of Doom and 2face4 coming out to play as well so it should be a fun night. The doors open at 8:00pm and the show starts at 9:00. We should be going on around 12:00 if everything goes right, which it never does. Come on out, drink some PBR, listen to some tunes and dance a little bit. It won't be as much fun without you.

It's rare that I get to brag about good Mexican food in Hawaii. Unfortunately, I just haven't had that much. Sure, there's La Taqueria in Fort Street Mall and El Palenque in Wahiawa. Both of those are really good. A new spot just opened up in Waipio next to Nancy's and I was impressed. The service was good, the food was really good and the whole ambience was perfect. A restaurant with unfinished walls, no hours in the window. A very proud owner/operator (think Baboo from Seinfeld) discussing the recipe of his homemade salsa. Yeah, I said homemade. Check it out, you'll like it . . . I did.
