Come join me for a weekend brunch that was inspired by a recent trip to Hawaii. I'll be preparing both sweet and savory dishes using ingredients and flavors commonly found in both Filipino and Hawaiian-style cuisine. A juice bar will be provided using SunTropics juices. LIve music performed by Ukulenny. Lenny San Jose, aka Ukulenny, is a performer and educator based in the East Bay. Born and raised in San Diego, he rocked his guitar to the sounds of Green Day, Weezer, and Sublime at a young age. It wasn't until graduating with a music degree from UC Berkeley in 2008 that he decided to pick up the uke, and falling in love with the instrument, began teaching and posting covers on YouTube. His audience today currently includes over 65,000 subscribers worldwide, and he has performed at ukulele festivals, Filipino fiestas, college showcases, weddings, and other events throughout California, Hawaii, Nevada, Florida, Tennessee, and even in the Philippines. Aside from his solo career, he also plays with a jazz duo dubbed The Bob and Lenny Show, and with ukulele songstress Cynthia Lin. Teamed up with fellow YouTuber Cynthia Lin, he co-leads the SF Uke Jam, based in Japantown SF. Lenny also teaches group classes in Albany, and private lessons worldwide. Lenny is a sponsored Kala artist, so you can also check out his tutorials on the Kala Brand website. ( For more info, visit
