Samsung Galaxy VIP Event

Thursday March 22, 2018 – I attended a VIP Samsung Launch Event for the new Samsung S9 & S9+. Samsung really rolled out the red carpet for everyone who attended. I even made it in time for a giveaway. I received wireless headphones, see them here > Samsung Gear IconX 

We walked into the beautiful room at the venue in Hollywood, Goya Studios, where we were greeted by the awesome staff from Samsung. Everyone had warm smiles and friendly personalities. The bar was center stage, always a a good sign. (View Photo) LOL

Then I went straight to make an emoji of myself, compliments of the new Samsung phone. (view photo)

Next stop, a “mood” feature on the phone, it was spot on. You choose photos from a “lineup” that catches your eye then it determines your mood. Feeling Flirty. Always ready to flirt! (devil horns) It plays a song from whatever mood you’re in. Not sure how this happens. Mine was “Feel this Moment” by Pitbull ft. Christina Aguillera. (view photo)

I made my way over to the bar to grab a beverage, you could have anything you want. Compliments of Samsung. Wine, liquor, prosecco, soda, water. No to the last two. Mix it or double fist!
We then grabbed some food, fried chicken sliders, beef sliders and vegetarian sliders, add a side of french fries and we were happy campers. What’s next? I am already impressed. There is more!!!!!
Then we noticed, an Oyster Bar WITH a prosecco bar, they were flying off the ice. Very popular item. They really made this an event to be remembered. Did they stop there? NO.
They wanted us to feel relaxed too, so we went for the “spa lounge”. Free hand massages. Free oils for stress ease, anxiety and balance. I took ALL 3. I am always on-the-go. I need it all, to stay at my best!!! They also offered passed hors d’ oeuvre incase the sliders and fries didn’t fit your mood.

I LOVE the Mr. Turk clothing line for men. The women’s line is Trina Turk . It’s a California inspired line. They have been doing business for 20 + years. But, Thursday night, they launched a line of shoes with SeeVees

See the line here Women’s Shoes & Men’s Shoes

I love meeting new people during these store hosted events. It’s like a tribe of people who all ended up at the same place to celebrate. Your “friends” who you have never met. You could find your next BFF or soul mate. It’s happened to me. It’s also free food and drinks. Count me in!

Snacks by Burger Lounge, drinks inspired by garden-to-glass cocktails from Jardesca and a super fun photobooth.

The drinks were refreshing cocktails you would sip on a sunny day in Southern California. My favorite was the Palm Springs Sprintzer, grapefruit actually isn’t my favorite but I favored it most.

The Burgers were juicy!!!!! The fries were good too!!! Seasoned with garlic – Very delicious snacks!!!

Shop online or stop by the store at 212. N. Larchmont Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90004 or find a store closer to you. I also love Larchmont Village – a neighborhood in Los Angeles.  I love this restaurant if you’re looking for a nice place to meet friends after shopping  – Vernetti . It’s a “happening” strip with shopping and eateries with a fresh, organic, LA forward vibe.
