Frank151 Chapter 45: Philippines Event Recap!

Posted in Events by yoshi on July 17, 2011

Last night a bunch of us went to Brooklyn’s “The Jungle” venue to celebrate the release of Frank151’s Chapter 45: Philippines issue. Friends, including Willy Santos, Sarah Meier, Crooks & Castles and more were featured in the book. The Frank team also travelled to the Philippines to experience first-hand our culture and our people.

We enjoyed Filipino food served buffet style, along with lechon, catered by Victory Restaurant from NJ! There was an abundance of chicken adobo, pancit, and some other dishes that i don’t remember the names of lol. They also served turon and halo halo for dessert! *Every time they turned on the ice shaver, the lights would go dim bahahahhaa – lights went dim and we screamed “halo halo time!* bahahahaha

So many people showed up to support, including the entire Crooks fam, friends from LA, and even the Philippines =)

DJ’s Geng Grizzly, Jasmine Solano, and Neil killed it as usual =P

Enjoy the photos!

They were also serving up the classic alcoholic beverages including the Pacquiao Punch (my fav), along with these cute little Sailor Jerry rum shots topped with whatever cream stuff that was lol.

    Hello Yoshi,

    My good man Synapse pointed me to your recap (which is dope btw). I’d just like to point out that there was a case of mistaken Identity as it was me who was spinnin’, not Synapse. My foolish ass needs to get a graphic on my laptop like the rest of the pros. This served as a good reminder.

    Glad you dug the music though! Such a fresh vibe out there.
