    Kat and Maya Sahut check out the Small Fry shop Friday while seeking out Black Friday deals at Kukui Grove Center.

Mahalo to Martin Steinhaus for the heads-up on the preseason soccer game between Kalani and Waimea High School! Congratulations to Robert Goldberg, who was sworn in as a per diem judge (Martin had to take the court pix) by Fifth Circuit Court Chief Judge Randal Valenciano (missus was dealing with the Black Friday crowds at Kukui Grove Center), bright and early, the day after the turkey.

Stacie Chiba Miguel of The Shops at Kukuiula got the day off (she was looking for parking at The Home Depot) to get ready for the Keiki Bash on Dec. 9 … more details coming, but if it’s anything like the Koloa School Holiday Bag launch, it should be a hoot!

Melissa McFerrin Warrack has been all over Kukui Grove (so was David Sossner, who even had time to get the holiday lights up at his house between the excitement), with at least four new shops opening. Kenn Firestone was busy painting walls between working with keiki on martial arts workouts, and Josie Pablo’s daughter Veronica had to check out Small Fry.

Pineapple Lily is going to take a short break after being slammed on Black Friday, and up near Times Supermarket, Cricket opened, and who had the lights on in the former Sports Authority store?

Ron Kosen has his Photo Spectrum crew out for photos with Santa near Deja Vu Surf Hawaii (everybody found something in those tents), and keiki can take a break in the special lights (and snow!) in the exhibit area.
