I figured out early on that the party swag, although an excellent canvas bag by Loomstate Organics also included boxes with Parra-scribble for those who dared to pick one up. Armed with this intimate knowledge, I wandered the party scoping each box carefully. I honed in on a carton with humor and Parra's trademark characters. Before I left, I asked the guest of honor to take a picture with the gift I chose to take home with me. Why? So that if I got stopped on my way out, I could at least show security my photo and explain that, "it was all good".
Big ups to team Arkitip (Robert and Snyder) for throwing us a west side event worth turning out for and to Parra for my present!
