Hawaii Food & Wine Festival Hosts Girls' Night Out at International Market Place June 28

Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival (HFWF) launches a brand new event, Girls’ Night Out – Thirsty Thursday Tastings, on Thursday, June 28, 2018, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the third-level Grand Lānai to kick off International Market Place’s (IMP) Mixology Month taking place throughout July. As part of the Festival’s growing lineup of year-round events, Girls’ Night Out offers patrons a fun and unique food experience that pairs restaurants with retailers.

“We are excited to partner with Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival to kick off the first event for our Mixology Month series,” says Breana Grosz, Marketing Director of International Market Place. “Girls’ Night Out is the perfect event to get a sneak peek Mixology Month food and beverage pairings along with exclusive fashion brands available at International Market Place.”

The six participating restaurants will offer a bite inspired by a retailer, with a representative from each retailer joining the party to talk about the story behind their brand. And each dish will be paired with a cocktail concocted by one of five Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival's master mixologists. Guests will break up into five intimate groups led by a mixologist, who will share their take on the food-and-cocktail combinations.

The restaurant and retailer pairings are:

Baku / 3.1 Phillip Lim
Eating House 1849 by Roy Yamaguchi / INTERMIX
Flour & Barley / Surf Line Hawaii
Herringbone / Trina Turk
StripSteak / Vilebrequin
Yauatcha / Saks Fifth Avenue

The evening will end at Saks Fifth Avenue where attendees will enjoy desserts and a specialty night cap. Each retailer will give Girls Night Out guests a special gift and promotional offers.

Tickets to Girls’ Night Out are $75 per person. The dine around features six tastings paired with cocktails. Tickets are available at www.HFWF.me.

In seven years, HFWF has expanded from a three-day festival with 30 chefs in Waikīkīto a three-weekend culinary celebration spanning three islands that attracts more than 10,000 attendees. The Festival boosts Hawai‘i’s reputation as a culinary destination with prominent national media coverage valued at $12 million.
