Green River… Wea You Stay?

April 19, 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! 😛

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?

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V is of the winning team I sponsored during the Central YMCA’s 1st Annual Indoor Triathlon. From left to right, they are the jogger: Melissa Chang (@Melissa808), the swimmer: Dino Kawamura (@Legendjy), and the biker Shay F (@StarletShay). Congratulations guys and mahalos for reppin’ VH07V!

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.

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

Although not very easy to schedule in between the cries of a little baby 😛 , this week’s task is to finalize the VH07V inventory so I know exactly how many shirts I have left and in what colors/sizes. Then, I will be placing a 3rd order – a really BIG one – to prepare for my first booth appearance at the upcoming 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.

I am planning on ordering a couple new color combos, stuff for the ladies & keiki, and even cool, looking embroidered hats! Cross your fingers I can get it all done in time! 🙂

Other than that, my friend sent in this pic of a recent VH07V sighting at the Kamiloiki Keiki Carnival. Thanks Kari! The guy in the pic is Jon and the banner he is holding is of a mutual friend’s (Stacie) cute clothing company for da wahine called Flutter & Bliss 808. Support local and check them out k? 😉

Not sure if I mentioned this to you guys before, but I’m currently in a body fat loss competition with some friends which started back on January 1st. Our final weigh-out/measurement is on April 1st (yeah, April Fool’s Day ironically) so I only have a little over a week left to go for this torture of not being able to eat junk food… Much! One thing I miss is plate lunches.

*GROOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWL*

Sorry, that was the sound of my tummy as I nibble on this salad. 😦 Depressing no? Anyway, this week’s WIH theme is plate lunches and fried chicken in particular. Go get um cuzins!

New Shipment of VH07V Tees

The bad news? After fulfilling all requests, I’m already running low on many sizes/colors and even ran out in others! 200+ gone in 1 week!? Wow! This thing is really taking off and it’s pretty dang exciting!

I guess I have to order A LOT more for round 3, and then strategically slow down on the sales in preparation for my first booth appearance at the upcoming 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall! See how I did that right there? 😛 It would be shmall kine embarrassing if I run out after the first day! Then again, that would be a good thing yeah? 🙂

Anyway, big mahalos to everyone for your support and helping to spread the word about this grassroots, local brand, that all started right here! 😉 You da bessessist!

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

On Sunday, we had our very first photo shoot for the VH07V line and I’m supah excited to see how the photos came out! We shot wifey’s two cousins (brother and sister combo) in a very Hawaii-ish Shave Ice scene. Here’s a look behind the scenes. Looks legit right? 😉

VH07V Photo Shoot at Kakaako Kool
VH07V Photo Shoot at Kakaako Kool

Special mahaloz to the following, in no particular order:

  • Jana and Kaka`ako Kool for allowing us to shoot on your property and for feeding us your bomb shave ice! (Give them a visit at: 831 Queen Street, Honolulu, HI 96813, Mon-Fri: 8am-6pm, Sat:11am-4pm)!
  • Marc Orbito of hungry eYe photography. Email him for your photographic needs: marc (at) orbito.net
  • C & K (probably shouldn’t name them 😛 ) for being my cute models and their parents (our uncle and aunty) for being supportive of the new VH07V venture.
  • Todd W for letting us borrow your bench for the shave ice scene.
  • Wifey and bebe for hanging out and being patient during the shoot. 8)

Barring another delay, my new order of 200+ additional shirts is supposed to be pau today! Hopefully, I’ll be able to pick up what I’ve been waiting for a month for, so I can continue my grass roots efforts of sales and distribution out of the trunk of my car. 😛 In anticipation of selling from my booth at the upcoming Hawaii Ocean Expo, I’ll probably be ordering another color combination or two, in addition to keiki sizes and a possible style for da wahine out dea. Exciting!

As mentioned above, I’ll have a booth at the 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, happening on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall! Come on down and visit me and/or tell your friends and family too k? And remember, if I still didn’t get to you 6 remaining VH07V Free T-shirt Winners, I’ll have them for you at the booth. Just come on down! 🙂


Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y’all! Shoooots!
