IT IS going to be a weekend full of good food, one-of-a-kind shopping, and awesome entertainment as Makati Street Meet 2018 unfolds on December 9 at Paseo de Roxas.
Now on its third year, the Makati Street Meet happens every first Sunday of the month. But for November and December this year, it has become a much-anticipated event among residents and guests alike, it will now be held every two Sundays of the month.
Great, good food and music
For starters, a Social Sunday was held on December 2 from 3-10 pm. The affair was a food fair in partnership with Mercato Centrale and Imaginarium Creatives. It showcased some of the yummiest finds in the country, accompanied by music from up and coming DJs. Among the performers are Earl of Manila, Six the Northstar, and VY!DD.
Just look at the exciting line-up of food vendors, each one serving up mouthwatering and Instagram-worthy concoctions from Buko House, Bagnet Patong, Mr. Tentacles, Olivia & Co., St. George Cafe and more!
To make the affair fun for all members of the family, there will also be arts and crafts activities by Ayala Land’s Papelikhaan from members of Barangay Luz. There are also fresh items available, such as saba and guyabano, from the Aeta community of Sapang Uwak, Porac.
Shop and be merry
Paseo de Roxas will be blocked off to make way for Sari-Sari: A Christmas Bazaar on December 9, featuring curated gift items of local and artisanal Filipino products in partnership with Brandboss Advertising. More than 30 merchants, including entrepreneurs of handmade items and innovators of indigenous materials, will showcase their wares in this bazaar which promises to transform Paseo de Roxas into a shoppers’ paradise from 10 am to 10 pm.
Be mesmerized by the offerings of merchants that include Mango Float Supreme Manila, Wagyu by Monica, Vegan Republic, Lemon Squeeze & Surf, Pacaro Leather, and the list goes on!
These twin events promise to make the upcoming holidays even more exciting in Makati, which celebrates Christmas like no other.
