Honolulu’s Eat The Street to move to Kakaako Gateway Park

honolulueat-teh-streetfried-musubi-600xx528-352-36-0After nearly five years at its South Street spot, Hawaii’s monthly food truck tasting event Eat The Street is moving three blocks away to Kakaako Gateway Park.

Stanford Carr’s Keauhou Place condominium project at the 555 South St. location will soon begin construction.

Street Grindz Owner and CEO Poni Askew said the new location has the same amenities, including free parking, and the bonus of grass seating. Kakaako Gateway Park borders Ala Moana Boulevard and Cooke Street.

“We didn’t want to interrupt our attendees’ normal way of doing things,” she told PBN. “We thought it would be really cool to have a park setting with green grass than the asphalt. We’re really fortunate to work with the Hawaii Community Development Authority and they’re excited to host us over there.”

Eat The Street: Japan will be held on South Street for the last time on March 27 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Each event is held the last Friday of the month, and hosts about 40 food vendors. More than 7,000 people attend each month.

Since its inception, Eat the Street has held 51 events, with approximately 418,200 attendees spending more than $15 million on local businesses.
