Hey fellow true believers (as Stan Lee would say), we are in the summer season and that means more outdoor fests! But first -- We are vying for several awards in the 2018 Hale 'Aina Awards presented by Honolulu Magazine! We won several awards last year including Best Oahu Restaurant, Best Business Lunch, Best Vietnamese, Best Cocktail and also Restauranteur of the Year! We hope to repeat, as we are in the same categories. In addition, Piggy Smalls is up for Best New Restaurant! It's a competitive field this year and we encourage you to vote for us (if you love us, of course).
To vote, head over to the Hale 'Aina Awards voting site! Remember, voting ends June 30!
In the meantime, we have two events that are special this week. First up, we are going to be at the Moi'ili'ili Summer Fest aka Bon Dance this Saturday, July 1! The event takes place from 5pm - 10pm. For more info, head over to the fest's website.
