You could say party of the year, but that would Not be good enough! Christa Wittmier or Super CW is the reason Hawaii nightlife was/is so rad. No one person has done so much to merge all the different scenes in our little town. All whilst wearing a Cheshire cat grin and having THE most positive attitude out of anyone i have ever met. (and i know quite a few people let me tell you) Even when u didnt believe in yourself CW did! From our early days of Contrast Magazine she was our biggest supporter and we honestly could not be where we are today without her. Her selfless support of everything nightlife and creatives in Hawaii did not go unnoticed. She had a blog documenting nightlife before blog was even a word. From EVERYTHING Chinatown, Powwow, bacardi pool partys and everything in between everything she did was awesome and came from the heart. I know she helped so many artists, musicians and deadbeats like me become the people we are today. We Thank You! She will never EVER be replaced so This is Aloha for a time well lived and loved. Please come down and partake on this magical night celebrating 8 years of the best time of our lives, Lance :)))))))))

Hawaii Pantry grew out of a passion for preserved foods and a true love for the ‘Aina (land). Some of these recipes have been passed down from generation to generation. The State of Hawaii is one of the most isolated population in the world and we import an estimated 80% of our food! It makes no sense that we import so much. With energy, transporting and costs continually rising, there is a growing urgency to address food security by re-establishing a local food system. Here is Hawaii Pantry’s way of contributing to a solution.

Support this local movement by backing Hawaii Pantry’s kickstarter campaign:
