I love the Seattle’s Best events that the Monsters Centaur PR agency produces, just like the carnival-themed one last year—complete with all these fun booths and activities. The one for this year’s unveiling of holiday drinks and the 2013 SBC Dream Journal is no exception. It was held in Boni High Street last October 18, 2012, and with the theme “Hippie Holidays” in mind, the event was held inside a colorful giant tent—and even had a vibrant Volkswagen on display.

Of course, the usual fun booths were there, from a “hippie-fy yourself” kiosk to a silkscreen your own shirt booth. There were also video games and monster bubbles for kids, plus free food and drinks from Seattle’s Best. The best part? Apart from all the celebs (the cutie Sam Concepcion, event host Marc Nelson, plus THE Jan Marini), there was a mini-concert from Sinosikat! That was the first time I saw them perform and I definitely enjoyed each and every performance—especially their version of “On and On” by Erykah Badu.

I think I had a little too much fun, actually. I had two cups of coffee, plus some vodka. I felt like hugging everyone after the whole event.

Can’t wait for next year’s event.
