The word has been trickling out, and we will have an official announcement this week regarding the opening of our second restaurant this fall! This is all very exciting (and a little scary) and we cannot wait to give you all the full details soon. Erika Engle, the intrepid and stalwart business reporter for the Honolulu Star Advertiser's Business section, will have all the details in her next column shortly, so stay tuned for that. 

In the meantime, we want to thank the RiseHI team for inviting Chef Andrew and his brother Alex to participate in their “They Don’t Ship to Hawaii” Kama’aina Creators & Doers conference last Friday. It was a little nerve racking for them to present the history of The Pig & the Lady from pop-up to farmers market booth to brick-and-mortar in a succinct 18 minutes, but they did their best and they had a great time. 

Before we go into our usual farmers market announcements, we want to remind you of a very special event that we are holding at the restaurant next Monday, May 23. We are doing a 5-course dinner and wine pairing and partnering with Chamber & Chamber Wine Merchants for this special dinner event. Check out the event info and menu below:
