5)[Coming Soon] Pups of War


Pups of War will soon open on the third floor of Ala Moana Center, towards the Ewa Wing.  The other two locations at Windward Mall and Pearlridge Center are frequented much like playgrounds, but for both children and adults.

The Ala Moana Center location will also offer its signature activities including survival games using sponge bullet Nerf guns.  Children will love this facility, but so will the entire family, making it the perfect place to host private birthday parties and other fun gatherings.  Spare your children from the tiresome activity of shopping with adults and get them tired out at Pups of War.

Crazy Shirts, formerly located in the Mauka Wing on the second floor of Ala Moana Center, migrated to the Diamond Head Wing near Anthropologie on the third floor.
