Evening of Kakaako fun stars bicycles, Las Vegas

Pedal into Ward Centers on Saturday evening and you could be flying your way out to Las Vegas. A trip to Hawaii’s second-favorite place is one of the prizes being offered at Discover Kaka’ako, the monthly celebration of the neighborhood in transition.

Entertainment will be provided by 2012 Kollaboration Hono lulu winner Mike Izon, starting at 5 p.m.; island serenade specialist Keith Omizo at 6:40 p.m.; and upbeat lyricist Jeremy Cheng at 8 p.m. A fashion show starts at 7:50 p.m., with offerings from MisFortune Hawaii and T.J.Maxx.

Look for I Bike HI, a group that celebrates everything about bicycling in Hawaii, from freestyle tricks to simple cruising. The group will have a booth with bike gear and art. Bikers can also take a spin around nearby neighborhoods to get a look at the street art created by Pow! Wow! Hawai’i. Those interested in riding for health might also want to visit the Hawaii Medical Assurance Association’s booth for free body-composition and blood-pressure screenings.

Several Ward Centers businesses are participating in Half-y Hour, an event that combines signature cocktails by Liquor Collection with half-priced deals on merchandise (for ages 21 and over). Participating stores include Cookies Clothing Co., Crazy Shirts, Downtown Gifthings, Executive Chef, Island Soap and Candle Works, Jams World, Local Fever, Quiksilver, Sedona and THEFACESHOP.

The trip to Las Vegas is one of two being awarded at Discover Kaka’ako this year, with one being chosen Saturday and another in December. If you don’t win this time, you can enter at Discover Kaka’ako every month until then, increasing your chances.
