Here we go again. The Pop-ups are picking up steam, and we're working on making more connections to keep these things alive and interesting. The Pop-Ups are going to be every fourth Saturday through October, so feel free to mark your calendars. This month, we'll feature the same format with some new wrinkles. Our artist is SALT's own Michael Sweitzer. I'll be writing a lot more about Michael's work very soon. For now, I like to describe his work as intimate self-exploratory illustrations. Mike is a great guy, and I think you'll all enjoy getting to understand his process. We're working to develop a visual presentation of his process at the Pop-Up to give you all an insight into his unique method of translating inspiration into art. Our musician this month will be singer-songwriter Griffifth Jurgens, whom I had the pleasure of meeting during a video production trip to the Big Island last month. Grif is an easy going guy with a great sense of humor, who keeps the vibe stress free despite the many many ambitions he's pursuing in the arts and his professional life. His lighthearted spirit comes through in his guitar and his lyrics. Award winning SALT will be catering the show once again, and you can't go wrong with Chef Q's creations. Salt won a well-deserved Hale Aina Gold award for best new restaurant, and Chef Q was declared a rising star amongst chef's concerned with sustainability by industry standard StarChefs.com. Come taste some of their offerings at the Pop-Up, and make a reservation for dinner at SALT after. And this month we want to branch a bit more into local food productions. We're welcoming a visual presentation from the Family Education and Training Center of Hawai'i who operate a small demonstration farm on the UH Manoa campus. The importance of locally grown, nutritious foods is gaining media momentum in the mainstream. FETCH runs programs that bring various groups into their farm to teach them about food production, from planting to cooking. They're an awesome program, and I'm stoked to share some of their accomplishments with you. Plus, they've agreed to donate one of their CSA bags of fresh produce to our raffle, so at the Kaimuki Pop-Up 4.0, you've got a chance to take home something healthy for your body and your community! And as we do after each of these shows, I'd like to invite you to discuss the show and all of our featured guests over a cocktail and a bite to eat at SALT, just two blocks up the street.
