Events for foodies, silent movie night & local variety show auditions

Downtown Hilo, 1928. Hawaiʻi State Archives.

One of the things I’ve been yearning for is a co-working space. They can be a place to meet remote workers, or a space for businesses to share office space. There’s something about seeing the same people every day, and as someone who spends a lot of time working from home, I yearn for that!

Which is why I’m interested in the Changemakers Community co-working space, Hilo’s first co-working space at the 1922 Pacific Building in downtown Hilo. This building has been an office space, former hotel, VA hospital, and held political rallies at its front.

Things are changing for the Big Island!

Here are a few things happening on Hawaiʻi Island this week. This is by no means an all-encompassing list, but a few ideas of what’s happening on the Big Island:


  • Thurs-Sun March 31-April 2: The Prom at East Hawaii Cultural Center in Hilo. Thurs-Sat at 7 and Sunday at 3. Tix are $23 general admission. A musical comedy that follows a troupe of hilariously self-obsessed theatre stars as they swarm into a small conservative Indiana town in support of a high-school girl who wants to take her girlfriend to the prom.
  • Fri March 31: Silent Movie Night, 7pm at Palace Theater in Hilo. Tix are $12 general admission or $15 at the door. A night featuring timeless comedy short films.
  • Tues April 4: Taco Tuesday Comedy Show, 6:30-8:30pm at Kona Elk’s Lodge. 2 tacos are $8. Comedy from 7-8:30pm followed by an open mic.
  • Thurs April 6: Chamber of Commerce x HawCC Culinary Program Business After-Hours, 5:30-7:30pm at HawCC Dining Hall. This is next week, but all foodies should buy tickets before this event sells out! Culinary students will have pupus, dishes, and malasadas prepared for you! Network & enjoy delicious food. Tix are $20 for Chamber members & $30 for non-members.
