Editor’s note: The Tasty Island does its best to be a positive voice and supporter in its efforts covering the unique products, people and places that make up Hawaii’s exciting and dynamic culinary scene. With that, a dedicated category has been added aptly named “The Tasty Calendar” to post upcoming related (foodie) events around the island(s). While some, if not all these events are/will likely be published and/or broadcasted by mass (local) media (including online), as well as their own websites, this blog offers yet another outlet to further get the word out on what otherwise may be an opportunity to attend what readers here may still have not heard about.
If you’re an organizer of an upcoming Hawaii-based culinary event and would like it announced on this food blog, email me @ pomai_05 at yahoo dot com and I’ll review it for consideration. Mahalo.
Coming soon on The Tasty Calendar! “Restaurant Week Hawaii“.
