It’s been half a year since we’ve been running The Hundreds STREET MEET, where The Hundreds’ photography community comes together to roam the city and share their love of picture-taking, beyond the walls of the Internet. STREET MEET has been an important and vital part of The Hundreds’ experience. The meet-up brings our website alive, emphasizes our People Over Product philosophy, and highlights an integral facet of The Hundreds lifestyle.
Which led us to consider other avenues whereby our community could interact. Outside of a skate demo or a hip-hop show, the immediate answer related to food. We then realized that we’re surrounded by friends who are running the culinary scene right now from LA to Brazil to Hong Kong. Our audience has expressed a favoring for foodie culture, so why not bring it all together? The best part about this is that it now becomes an opportunity to share a night with our followers and vice versa. Ben and I have done the typical meet-and-greets and appearances, but they can feel awkward and stiff when we’re trapped behind a retail store counter, signing T-shirts. Is there any better way to get to know someone than sharing a meal and some drinks together? (Well, there is, but that’s a group activity that we’re not ready to explore just yet).
Off the success of The Hundreds STREET MEET, we announce EAT MEET, a celebration of The Hundreds lifestyle through social gathering and delicious food. EAT MEET is a private dinner for our community in Los Angeles – an opportunity to break bread with Ben, myself, and the rest of the The Hundreds family at one of our favorite restaurants in the city. Our inaugural EAT MEET will be hosted by our friends at East Borough Culver City on Tuesday, August 26th, starting promptly at 7pm to 10pm. Admission is $50 and includes a 5-course set menu (with new items that guests will be the first to try), a collaborative The Hundreds X East Borough T-shirt, and an intimate night to share conversation and New Vietnamese dishes with the founders and team behind The Hundreds. Drinks are not included. Tickets are limited to 50 and go on sale right now in The Hundreds Online Shop. 4 tickets per person/per transaction. Tickets are non-transferrable. Tickets purchased as a gift must be noted in the checkout process.
See you Tuesday night, and come hungry!
