Last Saturday, Munky King was the place to be. Their opening reception for Crowded Teeth’s ‘Super Sweet Group Show’ was poppin’.

Sweet Streets, in collaboration with Crowded Teeth curated an amazing group show with artists such as: Luke Chueh, Eimi, Miso, Martin Hsu, NICO, Mizna Wada, Angry Woebots, among many talented artists.

All of the art was inspired by the works of Crowded Teeth. Of course, we had a little hand in pushing the magic into the world wide web.

The show was a collection of coloful, magical, and cute that only Crowded Teeth could inspire.

We don’t know what was the best part, the art, the magical Crowded Teeth Cupcakes, or the awesome food from Lomo Arigato!

Black in White and Red All Over

Earlier this month, we helped Munky King release the newest creation by renown artist, Luke Chueh.  “Black in White and Red All Over” was not only hugely successful for Munky King and Luke Chueh, but we were amazed at the level of dedication of Luke’s fans!!

The staff at Munky King got up bright and early on October 2, 2010 to decorate their store and gallery space with art and knives. Not to be out done, we showed up to help break a sweat. From blood stains, to knives, to bunnies bleeding all over, there was lots of decorating to be done.

However, no matter how early any of us showed up, Luke’s fans had all of us beat. The early bird line ran down the entire block. The first two fans in line even confessed to us that they had driven from Arizona and had been waiting since 7PM the night before!!! We admire that kind of love of art, especially because they waited not just through the night, but through a swelteringly hot Saturday.

B. Awesome

If you weren’t at B. by Aperire’s “Fashion Night Out” Soiree last Thursday night on Melrose Ave, then we’re sad for you! You really missed out on something special.

We arrived early to ensure we could fully enjoy all the styles (and sizes) available before the rush. With 50%-80% off, there was sure to be a bargain-hunting-fashionista crowd at this event. The early birds gets the size 7’s!

Chubby Bunny, in early for maximum shopping success

Hiromi Tatsuda, designer for B. by Aperire definitely sold us on the comfort level of all these shoes. As the headline on their website says: “Heels that keep you moving from Hollywood to Tokyo”, and we believe it. It’s amazing and comforting to know that you can have fashionable footwear and not have to do that stumbling painful walk to your car after a night out. You know that walk ladies, the one where your feet feel like they’re exploding with every step.

Colorful shoppers trying on shoes as boxes begin to stack.
