Another new cafe in Honolulu
This week's Honolulu Weekly mentioned a new independent cafe that I will have to check out. It is called rRed Elephant and is at 1144 Bethel St. (Tel: 545-2468. Hours: 7 AM (yawn!) until 9 PM ). Why do all cafes here have to close so early?! In any case, I tried Googling this cafe, and found an interesting New York Times article, "In Honolulu, Arts Revive Chinatown's Fortune" by Jocelyn Fujii from 18 Dec. 2005 that mentioned the cafe and the overall gentrification of Chinatown. I was pleased to see the Times take note of our First Friday event.
