We hit some of the most happening spots during February’s First Friday in Chinatown, including NextDoor, hosting geishas and Master Calligrapher Uehira Bakei from Osaka, who later demonstrated his craft with a giant calligraphy scroll on Hotel Street; The ARTS at Marks Garage for the 10 Grains of Rice project, a showcase of the functional and sculptural work of 10 ceramic artists; the Chinatown Artists Lofts, including woodblock print carver Sergio Garzon’s workshop; the last occurrence of ARTmusicBEER in the Chinatown Courtyard; Loading Zone, with an installation by artist Jimmy Mack; and the soft opening of brand-new venue Fresh Cafe Downtown, located in the former Indigo space on Nuuanu Ave.
