KROQ Weenie Roast Gifting Suite: Check Out the Swag & Celebs! Part 1

It was a crazy week last week with invites to events for the MTV Awards and also getting an invite to attend the KROQ Weenie Roast all day concert event at Verizon Amphitheater in Irvine California.
Wow.. talk about crazy days– I had to shuffle things around — because of other commitments– but I did get eventually to the KROQ Weenie Roast.

Coverage of this event– will be primarily photo-driven with little comments and it’s a lot of photos kids. So I am splitting it into multiple posts

SURPRISE Guest: FOO FIGHTERS

The event was crazy!! VIP Parking was packed– and people were coming in droves. With TWO different stages going– one for the early shows and the other for the later evening shows– what could be bad about this event? Nothing!! In fact PR was nice enough to shuttle me around in a golf cart up to the Farmer John Gifting Lounge and it was tres cool. Going back where all the musicians and celebs were hanging was fun. Here is the line-up that was happening last weekend.

KROQ Gift Lounge Sign– the only way to fly.

I got out of the golf cart and trotted over to the lounge and thanked the fun PR people and then went inside to blessed air conditioned comfort. For what seemed like a smallish venue they had an incredible array of brands handing out swag to celebrities & musicians.

The lounge of swag with guests aplenty


Guest with bag o’ swag — and cocktail cup too!

Christy’s Hats.. (find them on the web)

Cute hats for guys and girls. (*no I didn’t get one. That’s ok!)

Blinq Eyewear– (read sunglasses)

A-MAZ-Ing Sunglasses. I had my choice of two different styles– both in this photo. I went with the yellow aviators. I heart them so much, they are in their box in front of me on my desk!!

EQ (www.eq-love.com)

Cool ion bracelets that are for guys and girls. They are supposed to improve your state of mind and state of body. I got an orange one. I immediately put it on.. must be why I had such a great time. (ya think?) .

Musician Inteview

Paul Frank and HoodieBuddies

Loved the Paul Franks stuff but omg.. wait till you see HoodieBuddies. These hoodies (I got one in gray) have premium earbuds in the hood and a plug for your iPod or smartphone so you can be wear, chic and musically balanced all at the same time. Digging this!! Cannot wait to upload tunes to the my phone. (yeah yeah.. give me a break. It’s new!). You have to get a HoodieBuddie!!!

Musician Interview

Synergy Kombucha Tea

An array of tea that is full of probiotics and is pretty tasty. I had the ginger tea. I liked that one. Find this at places like Whole Foods or google Synergy Drinks.
