Sanrio celebrates Hello Kitty’s 35th Â birthday with an ongoing celebration centralized around Royal-T Cafe in Culver City, California. Several parties are going on throughout the rest of this month and next month; check their website for the schedule and details!
Last night, thanks to the ladies of Bubble Punch, I got to attend the opening VIP party! The night didn’t start off too well as we stood in line for almost over an hour, waiting to be allowed inside. They had invited too many people and the fire marshals declared the venue at over capacity. They had to stop letting people in…! Fortunately, our heroine, Steph came to our rescue and we were able to go in earlier than we had imagined!
The wait was completely worth it, to be honest. Not only was Royal-T decked to the bones with Hello Kitty decorations andÂ paraphernalia, the crowd was awesome, amazing artwork, great music, free food, and… OPEN BAR, BABY! There was also a bit of a celebrity hubbub at the event (attendees included Paris Hilton, Kimora Lee Simmons, Dave Navarro, Yoshiki from X Japan etc.), but personally… I was too busy loving on all the Hello Kitty toys and merchandise…!!! My inner-twelve years old was in heaven!!! There was even a trailer home with a Hello KittyÂ theme; including a soft, pink, fluffy bed!
More Hello Kitty fun will come as the events happen, so stay tuned!
