    The BYU-Hawaii Street Band and Shaka Steel perform Saturday at Kukui Grove Center.

Elvrine Chow was having to decide which lei would be appropriate for Arnold Meister’s birthday, and Alan Van Zee was sold out again! Cynthia Chiang was trying to debate on whether to take in the Rotary Club of Poipu Beach’s One Fine Evening or the Big Brothers/Big Sisters bowling fundraiser, and where were the Girl Scout cookies this weekend?

A lot of items were sold out, or very close to being gone, during the Kauai Community Market (Amy Chun is already gearing up for the Garden Fair coming up Saturday, April 6), where Ferdinand Dosono and the Kauai Kim Chee ohana had to get ready for the First Saturday event in Kapaa.

Aletha Thomas is still trying to get a handle on how much Hanalei Roasters coffee to bring to the market (yep, it got sold out, too!), and Larry Feinstein was hanging out at the pizza place.

Kudos to Dave Sosner, Melissa McFerrin-Warrack and Kukui Grove Center for coordinating a multi-cultural celebration featuring sampling of everything from education (it was Dr. Seuss’s birthday!), culture and music (the BYU-Hawaii band and Shaka Steel were great!)…nope, coach Beau Acoba was busy with coaching soccer so couldn’t do the Tsunami Taiko thing, although Gini Kapali was so thrilled with the Joyful Noise ensemble, it was off to lunch at Kalapaki Joe’s after the performance.

OK, this is the week to check out the Jeremy Brown and the Kilauea School production of “Madagascar Jr.,” this Friday and Saturday.
