    Kauai Society of Artists’ Rose Anne Jones and Susanne Long wrap up a day of accepting entries for the small work Big Show exhibit that opens with a reception Friday at the KSA gallery at Kukui Grove Center.

Yikes! It’s Wednesday already and Sharon Lasker of the Regency at Puakea invites people to their Fourth annual Holiday Craft Fair and Rummage Sale (they got good stuff) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There’s even lunch of a Portuguese bean soup, cornbread and water available … Missy Saiki said the All Saints craft fair is Dec. 8 (not 3!) in Kapaa.

Kudos to Dawna White on the release of her “The Auntithesis” music video (check it out to find out why the white frosting is pink!) that she wants to go viral on YouTube. The release coincided with the end of a day of accepting entries for the next Kauai Society of Artists exhibit that opens with a reception Friday at Kukui Grove Center.

Faith Campbell said Wilcox Health is hosting a special Walk Around the Block with A Doc Saturday with no reservations needed as part of the Rice Street Block Party. Walkers simply show up at 7 a.m. at Kalena Park for a nice walk to the Elsie Wilcox Elementary School and back along Hardy Street.

Once back, the blender bike will be available to make smoothies for the light food offering of blueberry muffins, bananas and water to go along with the start of the keiki 3-on-3 basketball tournament (are the Lakers involved?) on the Kalena Park court.

And, don’t forget the First Hawaiian Bank Hawaii High School Athletic Association Division II playoff football game that starts at 2 p.m. Saturday at Vidinha Stadium. Can the Kapaa Warriors get past the Kaimuki Bulldogs, who pulled off a one-point victory over Kamehameha Schools-Big Island?
