BABYCUE

Some things never change, things such as barbecues, beaches, barbecuing on the beach but more importantly friends and family are things that will and should never change. And thats exactly how it felt being back “home” in Hawaii for 5 days last week. My wife and I decided to take a quick, last trip before baby comes, so a “babymoon,” if you will. And what better place to “babymoon,” than in paradise. Being that it was such a last minute trip, our friends and family surprised us, well rather surprised, my wife and threw us, as Alia dubbed it, a “babycue.” We definitely felt the love that was shown to us by our friends and family and I know that our little man did as well. It was a great afternoon filled with food, games, the beach and each others company, what more could you really ask for? I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who showed up and a special thank you to my sister Brie and Alia, because without your guys’ planning, none of that would have been possible, so thank you! It will be awhile before we are able to come back, but when we do, it will be with our little man.

HAIGHT STREET MUSIC & MERCHANTS FESTIVAL

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Yesterday was the first ever “Haight Street Music & Merchants Festival” thrown by Black Scale, Pink Dolphin, Derby SF and Diamond. The block was filled with 3 stages, with DJ sets from Ruby Red I, Mind Motion, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, to name a few, people walking, dancing, smoking and drinking. All the shops were open, the bars were open where people were watching the Niners smack the Cowboys around, music was playing, the sun was out. Overall, it was a great day and great festival. With performances by Ya Boy, J Boog, Erykah Badu, IAMSU and the whole HBK gang, I’m sure this festival will be going strong for years to come. I tried taking good pics but I was too busy enjoying myself.

J.BOOG x HOT RAIN x 9TH ISLAND

Last Thursday, I got to check out the homies, Boog and Hot Rain perform at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas. It felt like I was back home at a concert with all the “chee huu’s” being yelled throughout the venue, all the FITTED being rocked and of course, Boog and Hot Rain performing. Boog even brought out Wanya from Boyz II Men to sing a couple of notes with him on stage.

Been MIA this past month but all for good reason…work, trade show, work, got married, flew to Vegas back to back weeks pretty much and did I mention that I got married?! Well yup, I got married at the end of the month so I’m bout that life now! Haha ok anyway, I flew to Vegas earlier this month for the Agenda Trade Show. Got some meetings done, went to some events, networked and connected the dots, you know, the usual.

HAIGHT IT OR LOVE IT

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

IMG_1997

Haight Street has been a popular location even long before any of the “street wear” shops opened up. OG shops like TRUE and FTC have been holding it down over the years while newer ones like Black Scale, Pink Dolphin, Shoe Biz, add to the already busy block.┬áToday I decided to hit up Haight Street to check out the two new shops on the block. Our San Jose family, Cukui, made the trek up the 101 and opened up shop in the city this past Saturday while hometown Nicky Diamond opened up down the street. Both shop build outs came out clean but would you expect any less? These two shops will definitely add to the culture of Haight Street. ┬áCongrats again to Jae, Orly and the rest of the Cukui family and to Spank, G and the rest of the Diamond SF crew.

(For anyone who is looking for our Summer D1 hats, Cukui SF, still has some in stock so hit them up!)

#WAVYVI TURNS ONE

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

This past Saturday was spent at the park, celebrating baby Violet’s 1st birthday. She spent the day surrounded by friends and family, uncles and aunties, tacos and candy…yes, they had a taco truck there along with the candy table and fondue set. Pretty snazzy set up for the steezy little girl’s first birthday party. It was great seeing a bunch of my friends from High School, some whom I haven’t seen in hella years. I found my old camera so I figured why not start using it more, especially on occasions such as this. But I ended up forgetting that I had it and half these pics are from my phone and/or CT’s phone. But don’t worry Vi, uncle will take better pics at your 2nd birthday party!

For all our our SoCal folks, San Diego (Lemon Grove) specifically, check out one of our accounts, Goodlife Tattoo! Goodlife offers that island feel atmosphere where you can get great tribal work done by Tha Kuya or Brandon, grab a FITTED and feel right at home. I still have yet to get some work done by either of them but it is looking like it is about that time. Goodlife also carries product from our ohana Cukui. Whenever you are in the area, check them out, get a tat and pick up a hat! Tha Kuya, whats good?! I need to get some work done!

RECAP OF AGENDA LONG BEACH

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

IMG_9030

 

Last week Thursday, I took the first flight out to LA and pretty much spent like 30 hours in LA/Long Beach to check out the Agenda Trade Show. A quick in and out trip to meet with some of our wholesale accounts, potential accounts and to network and keep the channel of communication from Hawaii to the mainland strong. It was also good seeing some of the homies whom I haven’t seen in a while, kill it at the show. This show did seem a little busier and more packed then the last one in Long Beach, but last one, I was just at our booth all day showing, so that could be the reason why. But we should be showing again soon, stay tuned!

RE2PECT

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

I am in no way, shape, or form a New York Yankee fan, but growing up playing shortstop, I followed shortstops like Royce Clayton, Nomar Garciaparra, A-Rod before he was juicing and of course Derek Jeter. Tonight was his last All-Star game, he’s definitely had a great career and it is only fitting that he gets the “RE2PECT” he deserves.
