Modern block parties use barricades to ward off motorists, replacing antiquated celebration security such as sentient piñatas or moats filled with molten fondue. Revel in safety with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a single general-admission ticket to the Alohalaulea 2011 Aloha Tower Block Party (a $25 value) on Saturday, September 17, from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the Aloha Tower Marketplace. Groupon holders must be 21 years of age, enter at Gordon Biersch, and bring a headshot of their favorite breakfast-cereal mascot.
One of Hawaii’s most expansive block parties delivers thunderous beats and intoxicating rhythms from more than two dozen musical acts sprawled across three venues. After checking in at Gordon Biersch, Groupon holders can bop between three Aloha Tower alehouses, sampling sonic entertainment at harborside spots such as Don Ho’s and The Waterfront. Tunesmiths drum out reggae and island rhythms from the plateau of four stages, while DJs spin house, hip-hop, and disco remixes of Ezra Pound’s The Cantos. Join Positive Motion for a celebratory spin at their CD-release party or float away on the eddies of Tribal Seeds' beguiling reggae-infused roots rock.
