Founded by Todd Goldman in 2000, David & Goliath is an American clothing company that makes tees with slogans which regular clothing outlets would never dare print but which Todd’s brand gets away with. This guy, who doodled his way to creating these “misfits” while taking Accountancy, has a collection of 57 characters (of which 21 are available locally).
I arrived at the venue pretty much on time. Actually…a bit ahead of the 8PM starting time in the invite. But guess what! Aileen was way, way ahead of me and having her caricature done by an artist at the bar!
I got a table for 4 near the front (for my myopic eyes) and Noemi and daughter Marielle joined me later on.
Funny man Gabe Mercado was host for the night and boy, did he keep everyone laughing with his quips!
He got us thinking of “loser” titles beginning from A all the way to Z! Then made us play charades by guessing the loser title being acted out (and my team composed of Noemi, Aileen, Shari, Jehzlau and moi were losers enough to think that since we were losing the game, they would award the prize to us. In our dreams!).
Later, Gabe got chicken-at-iblog4 guy Arthur to play the Dating Game with Arthur asking 3 questions and through sheer chicken genius, ended up guessing the correct characters of his 3 “dates”: Miss Bitch, Mr. Well Hung and Miss Gossip Queen.
Noemi and I won “Bloggers Suck” tees (the very same ones we were earlier admiring on Dingdong) just because we were chosen as the “most enthusiastic bloggers” during the powerpoint presentation of David & Goliath. (Hey, it must have been because Noemi had her to-die-for Nikon D40 DSLR and I was shamelessly taking videos of everyone and everything).
Then I won another bag of goodies for jokingly defining the word apositive as “the opposite of anegative”. So being a stupid loser pays after all, huh?
And every blogger went away with still another bag of goodies from David & Goliath. Here is everything I had inside the loot bags:
If you squint your eyes and look carefully at the top, you will see — YES, a P1,000 GC — enough to buy another one of those David & Goliath tees which run around P995 each (I am swinging between choosing “Miss PMS” or “Miss Trophy Wife”). No, maybe “Miss Bitch” or “Miss Gold Digger” is more dramatic, hehehe.
So, who says losers can’t be winners?
Here, meet all the LOSERS who came to the loser party.
Of course, blogger events like these mean that bloggers blog about the bloggable event. Here are links to some of them as taken from Noemi’s list — since loser ME has had no time to go blog hopping).
If you blogged about it and I missed you, please holler and post the URL below. After all, that is why I am such a LOSER. Not only am I probably the last person to blog about the event but I also have my very own senior moments! 🙂
One last plug: David & Goliath outlets can be found at Boni High Street, Power Plant Mall, TriNoma, Greenbelt 5, Robinsons Place Manila Midtown, and Rustan’s Makati. Thank you for making us losers, WINNERS!
