cacao.jpg

EVERY FOURTH SUNDAY

Cacao Farm to Chocolate Factory Tour

If you've ever wanted to see the entire process of chocolate making from start to end, this is the exact tour for you! We’ll take you to local organic cacao and diversified ag farm to see how the beautiful cacao tree produces its pods right off the trunk, learn how to tell when they’re ripe, taste the fresh sweet cacao pulp, help harvest cacao, and see how it’s fermented and dried. Then after an hour transit break, we’ll welcome you behind the scenes at our shop to roast, crack, & winnow your own cacao, see how we grind and temper chocolate into bars and dip a delicious local fruit in our rich dark chocolate to eat on the spot. You’ll be ready to start your own cacao farm & bean-to-bar chocolate shop after this tour!

Kids are very welcome on this educational & inspirational tour! Contact us with any questions and if you would like to arrange a tour for your group on another date. We are happy to plan school class tours by special arrangement. Lunch & transportation not included.

The tour will begin on farm; we'll send you detailed driving instructions along with your registration confirmation email. If you don't receive your confirmation email 48 hours before the tour date, please check your spam folder and then contact us via email.

Cost: Free (Children up to 5 yrs), $25 (6-12), $50 General

Vinyasa Flow Yoga at Open Space Yoga

OSY_2277-1-300x200.jpg

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Vinyasa Flow is an intelligent way of sequencing postures towards a peak pose and/or theme utilizing breath-synchronized movement. This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost certainly include Sun Salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching. Whether the class is fast or slow, includes chanting, or is very alignment-oriented will depend on the individual teacher. You may find this style of yoga more enjoyable if you have experienced some yoga "basic" classes.

Wine and Chocolate Pairing at Madre Chocolate Factory

wine.jpg

EVERY FOURTH SATURDAY

Wine and Chocolate Pairing

What makes wine and chocolate such great companions and how does one find the best match of dark, spicy, and fruity chocolate with the plethora of sweet, dry, full bodied, and light wines? We’ll show you how similar the terroir, varieties, fermentation, and processing of delicious locally-made gourmet chocolate is with the full range of wine as we step through flights of both. We’ll diverge from the standard port & dark chocolate pairings to show how a nice Riesling can go well with a tangy dark chocolate and even Cabernet Sauvignon can blend smoothly with certain assertive chocolates. We will step you through some of the history of chocolate, how it's intersected with wine in the past, present, & future, while tasting some of the best vintage wines with Madre Chocolate's fine chocolate bars.

Movie Premiere - Last Taxi Dance at Hawaii Theatre Center

last_taxi_facebook.jpg

HAWAII THEATRE CENTER PRESENTS

HTC Benefit - Movie Premiere - Last Taxi Dance

In a ballroom called Paradise, in the aftermath of World War II, a proud Hawaiian singer dances with a returned American soldier and debates the dignity of the American dream.

Mahea sings atop a makeshift bandstand, full of masked contempt for the audience of G.I.’s below. Later, when the lights have come on and the crowd has cleared out, Mahea sits alone on the stage lost in thoughts about a simpler time, until a lone soldier returns holding unused dance tickets. A taut tete-e-tete follows on the ballroom floor as Mahea accepts the Soldier’s invitation to dance only to indict the American way of life he serves. With every step, Mahea puts colonialism on trial, defending the honor of her people against fetish and exoticization.  As they move around the room, Mahea’s Hawaiian values come into conflict with her own prejudices, as this soldier has no designs on living past tonight. This last taxi dance is either a strange cry for help or a final happy moment in an otherwise forgotten life. For when Mahea learns that if the soldier’s final dance ticket runs out, this man will be dead.

Red Carpet movie premiere of this locally produced Hawaii short film, screening of behind the scenes “making of” film, and a VIP after glow party.  Come and join us in this event where proceeds will benefit the Historic Hawaii Theatre Center!

Tickets: $25-75

Wine and Chocolate Pairing at Madre Chocolate Factory

wine.jpg

EVERY FOURTH SATURDAY

Wine and Chocolate Pairing

What makes wine and chocolate such great companions and how does one find the best match of dark, spicy, and fruity chocolate with the plethora of sweet, dry, full bodied, and light wines? We’ll show you how similar the terroir, varieties, fermentation, and processing of delicious locally-made gourmet chocolate is with the full range of wine as we step through flights of both. We’ll diverge from the standard port & dark chocolate pairings to show how a nice Riesling can go well with a tangy dark chocolate and even Cabernet Sauvignon can blend smoothly with certain assertive chocolates. We will step you through some of the history of chocolate, how it's intersected with wine in the past, present, & future, while tasting some of the best vintage wines with Madre Chocolate's fine chocolate bars.

Cost: $40

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Vinyasa Flow is an intelligent way of sequencing postures towards a peak pose and/or theme utilizing breath-synchronized movement. This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost certainly include Sun Salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching. Whether the class is fast or slow, includes chanting, or is very alignment-oriented will depend on the individual teacher. You may find this style of yoga more enjoyable if you have experienced some yoga "basic" classes.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga at Open Space Yoga

OSY_2277-1-300x200.jpg

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Vinyasa Flow is an intelligent way of sequencing postures towards a peak pose and/or theme utilizing breath-synchronized movement. This style allows for a lot of variety, but will almost certainly include Sun Salutations. Expect movement, not just stretching. Whether the class is fast or slow, includes chanting, or is very alignment-oriented will depend on the individual teacher. You may find this style of yoga more enjoyable if you have experienced some yoga "basic" classes.
