• Bring an item to donate to the Hawaiian Humane Society, and get entered to win a prize! The Humane Society's wishlist can be found here. Representatives from the Humane Society will be at the event to answer questions about adoptions and all the work they do for Hawai'i's homeless pets!

• Gee Yung Martial Arts celebrates the Year of the Dog with a traditional Chinese New Year lion dance in the Kinau Courtyard.

DJ Tittahbyte breaks it down in the Luce Courtyard—shih tzu is about to get real.

Simple Souls bring their acoustic melodies to ARTafterDARK to get your tails wagging!

The HoMA Shop also hosts a pup-up shop from the Public Pet. Stop by to check out:
• Adorable accessories for your four-legged friends
Pet portraits: Bring a photo of your beloved pet (cat, dog, fish, chinchilla, whatever) and Druscilla Santiago of Adventure Fun Club will create a work of art based on your furry friend. ($10)
Dogged by a persistent pet problem? Pet Communicator Eileen Abebring a photo of your pet and she will translate your pet's message! (Reminder: pets are NOT allowed inside the museum) 

*Note that the Portrait Artists and Behaviorist are by appointment only—get to the shop early to sign up for a time slot!


• This month's specialty cocktail is the Red Lotus: New Amsterdam vodka and soho lychee liquor accent the tartness of cranberry to create an interesting play of flavors that is both intensely sweet and delicately refreshing.
