We’ve had some good times this month including two carnivals on our lanai with live music, meatballs, and artisan showcases — macarons, kids’ art, live painting, and jewelry all featured. Three more events are planned for December 6th, 12th, and 19th to carry you into the new year. We learned how to reserve the parking places out front to enhance our space and your covid safety, so we’ll do that for these events.

We’re greatful for the trust our tattoo clients place in us. We have never doubted our ability to operate a professional tattoo shop that meets or exceeds all DOH standards. Please have a look at the artists’ work via @thecollectivekailua.

“My Balls Kailua” has set up Tuesday afternoons (4:30-7:00pm) for dinner take-home action, including balls, sauce, and their newest creation called The Hot Chick — which is a magnificent chicken parm sandwich. Trevor and I awarded 10’s. The ladies are also going to be participating in the incredible Kailua Night Market on Nov 28th, 5-9pm. Going to be a riot.

Welcome new artist Sinjin Kristoff to the team! Sinjin is going to be assisting us as he apprentices under Lisa and Trevor in the months ahead. Sinjin’s outgoing nature and charisma will be readily apparent, so please come say hello to him.

We’ve also welcomed to the family a young lady who has perfected several VEGAN (**VEGAN!!!**) dessert recipes. Kai just wrapped up her first session Friday night, and there are delicious chocolate covered doughnuts, blueberry scones, and apple strudel muffins in the chiller right now. Who’s going to be first to try them?? We hope you enjoy these delightful treats — tell your friends!

The cafe will take Thanksgiving off, but be back for Black Friday. Aloha.
