The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and it was time to celebrate Anime! On April 23rd, our brunchettes arrived at the New York Beer Company and in the name of the moon, we drank mimosas!
Upon arrival, Princess Mononoke kodamas and assorted anime cubees were waiting to ferry our brunchettes on a nostalgia trip of anime fandom. We had beautiful cherry blossom menus as well another brilliant illustration by Monique Steele. And the best part was the swag!
Everyone who attended left with some great items. We had Sailor Moon socks with pocky, adorable cat figures from Chi’s Sweet Home, a cute Sailor Moon framed print by Super Emo Friends, a Sailor Moon purse and an Anime Loot Crate sponsored by Geeky & Creepy (check out her unboxing videos!). Congrats to our winners!
The Sakura trees weren’t the only things to celebrate this time of the year: our friends at Allied Marketing sent over some Captain America: Civil War items as well for all of our attendees. A huge discussion broke out to see who was on Team Captain America or Iron Man. The majority of our brunchettes were Team Captain America — but everyone agreed that Black Panther is the real MVP.
Thank you to all of our Anime Fans for joining us for an amazingly fun day! We’ll see you next month at our Wear Your Fandom Brunch!!
