Last Thursday, April 12, 2018, Raina and I checked out the official media launch of the #JohnnieWeekend Creators Lab Series at Burgos Park in BGC. Johnnie Walker brought together soul-jazz music produce Lustbass, Filipino Funk band IV of Spades, and multi-disciplinary visual artist Mvltiverse to collaborate for an audio-visual show that creatively blends their master craft.
We enjoyed three Johnnie cocktails, made with 3 of Johnnie Walker’s best sellers: Johnnie’s Spades (Johnnie Walker Black Label, maple syrup, lemon juice, and grapefruit juice with a slice), Peaches and Gold (Johnnie Walker Gold Label, peach syrup, angostura bitters, and an orange slice), and my favorite of the trio, Double Team! (Johnnie Walker Double Black, ginger beer, lime soda, cucumber, black pepper, cucumber, and thyme). Paired with The Tipsy Pig’s delicious catering and the artists’ awesome audio-visual collaboration, Raina and I surrendered to the infectious rhythm of modern disco, jazz, soul-funk, and found ourselves moving to the beat while tripping out on the modern art holographic projections.
A true inspirational display of music and modern art, Johnnie Weekend launched the Creator Lab Series off to a groovy start. A new instalment for the Johnnie Weekend Creators Lab Series will be introduced every month, where like-minded people who excel in food, film music, and sports can come together and share their passions. If you’re looking to connect and get inspired over a glass of smooth, Johnnie Walker scotch whiskey, check out the JohnnieWalkerPH page on Facebook for more details on how to get in on the action. Cheers!
