Hey Loves!! Who doesn’t like a little happiness? Who is opposed of joy!? Not I! So today I come to you with an extremely fun event I attended!! Mike’s Hard Lemonade set a up fun pop-up experience in Downtown LA in collaboration with the DTLA Film Festival where attendees were able to immerse themselves in joyful activities as a part of their “Drink on the Bright Side” campaign! I was told by the event Director (at least I think that’s her title) that all of the activities were created through scientific statistics that indicated that each of these activities brought people more joy!
The pop up playground was held in DTLA at the Hudson Loft. We had our I.D’s check to ensure we were of age (21+ event) we gave them our $1 (that’s how much it was to attend and the proceeds went to the DTLA Film Festival) got inside this tiny elevator that I was apprehensive to get in because I don’t like crowded elevators! LOL! 4 of us was enough and they agreed! UP WE GO! Once we were let in we were presented with a Bright Side map and 2 drink tickets for the bar (which was the cutest, you’ll see!) I actually lost my Bright Side map to show you all but check out this video to see it on a larger scale.
When you entered there was a dope edible cotton candy entrance of some sort. Was I eating off of it? NOPE! But good thing there was a lady making fresh batches of cotton candy so I quickly scooped one up!
So there were 7 stations we could engage in and Get happy so Amber and I did just that!
Going by the Bright Side Map you had:
They had the tastiest little bites we could enjoy from mini bacon wrapped hot dogs, quesadillas, mac n cheese, to MY favorite: CHICKEN AND WAFFLES! Was it the best? Naw. But it did the trick and I ate a few!
Unfortunately Amber and I weren’t able to do CARAOKE because we got in line too late and the comedy show was about to start. WHOMP!
Spread The Love
Just call me Elmira. Please google her if you don’t get it . LOL!
Amber took a video of me playing Map Darts and Failing miserably but deleted it because she thought I could get another turn to do it over and umm no sooooooo. But at this station if you popped a balloon on the map you either got a prize or some cute quote. Amber got a quote.
Here’s a few pics of the balls I could’ve jumped in but chose not to. Well at first I didn’t because I had on a dress then later on towards the end of the evening I wanted to but they cut it off because the event stopped at 9! So much for that
What Laughter Tastes Like
There was an area to sit with ping pong tables and something grassy wall to take pictures by which was cool. There also and Infinity room, A rainbow for influencers (Why only influencers IDK but apparently there was a list but Amber managed to get us up in there!) There were other spaces as well to submit a joke via snapchat, and chill with the pugs. Great Event over all!!! I had a blast.
