Save the dates!

We are close to announcing some AMAZING parties we are hosting in conjunction with Sanrio and their big 50th Anniversary Celebration here in Los Angeles!

For those of you who don’t remember, or would simply like to reminisce, we worked with Sanrio last year for their Hello Kitty’s 35th Anniversary events, and produced the  “Hello Kitty’s Bats & Cats Masquerade” event, which was a staggering success! You can moon over that time of yore at our old event post here:

For this year, all we can tell you is to please keep as much of the listed times for the 50th Anniversary Celebration free as possible! It’s going to be much bigger, and much, much better! Plus, this time ALL of Hello Kitty’s friends will be making their way to the big party!
