First Fridays, Honolulu

Chinatown
Honolulu , Hawaii
Concierge.com's insider take:

From 5 to 10 p.m. on the first Friday of each month, Chinatown (which extends east-west from River Street to Richard Street and north-south between Beretania and King streets) turns into an arty street party. Participating stores, galleries, performance spaces, restaurants, and bars literally leave their doors wide open for throngs of people who come to schmooze, socialize, see and be seen—and, of course, shop. Crowds spill out onto the streets and make the rounds, sipping free wine and scouting for designer home decor at Sourcing Asia and INTO, "recycled art by unknown talents" at Daspace on Smith Street, and "outsider art" at the Got Art? gallery on Nuuanu Avenue. Those wanting to buy contemporary but still-affordable Hawaiian artworks should stop by the Louis Pohl Gallery, and wine collectors shouldn't miss the HASR Wine Co., a funky little shop run by enthusiastic wine nerds with some surprising selections (perfect for BYOB meals in the 'hood).
