Kudos to Kirsti Vedenoja and her Kauai Roots ohana on opening at the Kauai Culinary Market Wednesday at The Shops at Kukuiula with her offerings of aquaponic products (ever see such juicy, big mint, or cress leaves?)! Laurie Ho and Bill Spitz found some time to squeeze in the market and got a whole bunch of the aquaponics, and Char Jensen said Kauai Roots is only limited to appearances in Kukuiula (just like the Rancher’s Daughter beef!).

Congratulations to Darrell Horner, Casey Ching-Pacheco, Kylee Kuhlman and Donovan Pegeder of the Butcher and the Fisherman who opened for the first time Saturday at the Kauai Community Market (Kauai Community College Chancellor Helen Cox didn’t even flinch in the passing showers — just like those people waiting in line for Ursa Swift’s Midnight Bear breads).

The Rev. Kosen Ishikawa of the Koloa Jodo Mission said this year’s bon dance ring was bigger because there were so many dancers, and dancing can get pretty crowded in a small ring, and Chad Fujii (no Friday night at the mall) had the New Executive Club (no one’s left on Kauai from the Original Executive Club except Chad) out in force for the bon dance.
