Poke & Box

Let’s face it, when it comes to fresh poke bowls, it’s all about the sauce. Poke&Box features 13 different house-made sauces, all hand-mixed using secret family recipes written down in one place – the owner’s head. You’ll find Poke&Box at Ala Moana Center’s Makai Food Court.

How do you care for 600+ cats on an island that only has 3,000 people? You turn it into Lanai’s most visited tourist attraction. What a purrrfect idea! (Cat people like cat puns). If you’re a cat lover, you can support their cause by going to LanaiCatSanctuary.org.

DENTISTRY IS NO LAUGHING MATTER.

Actually, it can be – if you have dentists with a sense of humor and a brilliant business plan to be available most hours of the day. Just in case someone chips a tooth opening a beer bottle. Yeah, you know who you are.

Touch is the very first sense we acquire as human beings. As the electronic world separates us from reality, the beauty and authenticity of ink on paper keeps us connected to the physical world and our own humanity.

COPY: Every work of art tells a story. This one says, "psst, I'm a kitchen cabinet."
COPY: Art critics will gather to debate its meaning. Homeowners will say, "what the hell you doing in my kitchen?"
COPY: You could display this in MOMA. But then where would you store your shoyu?

IS IT MODERNISM OR POST-MODERNISM? 

Actually, it's a nice place to store your Tupperware. 87zero crafts one-of-a-kind kitchen cabinets that are so beautiful, they are worthy of display in an art museum.
