A few weeks back, I was fortunate enough to be a +1 in an exclusive Marlboro event in the beautiful Island of Boracay (Fortunate because the winner was my girlfriend… and I automatically became the +1, much to the horror of our other friends). They set us up in a swanky hotel (Discovery Shores Boracay), gave as all-access pass to an exclusive Marlboro launch event in Club Paraw, w/c featured an awesome 2-hour performance by DJ Zedd (who my girlfriend and I mistakenly mistook for the band that performed “Starlight” from the movie “The Hot Chick”), as well as tons of free shit, courtesy of the good people from Marlboro. All in all we were about 30 (15 winners, and 15 +1’s). So much free shit for just saying “Yes” to the question, “Would you be willing to sacrifice your weekend, to go partying with Marlboro?” (Who the fuck would say NO to that?)
It was a pretty solid activity. Everything was planned right down the last grain of rice. From leaving NAIA3 to checking-in to Discovery Shores, to having a small meet-and-greet with Zedd (who by this time, my girlfriend and I knew as ” the DJ that spells it with 2 Ds, and looks like a 16 year old kid with a beard), everything went as smooth as silk (plus we had unlimited cigarettes).
BTW, Labor day in Boracay is THE SHIT. I’m definitely going back next year.
