What do Paris Hilton, Dave Navarro and Tera Patrick have in common? No, not that you pervs- they love Hello Kitty. I didn’t realize the extent of Hello Kitty’s subversive undertones, but it seems that it goes hand it hand with having a sex tape.
Last night’s party was in honor of Hello Kitty’s 35th birthday. The event kicked off a three week exhibition (10/23-11/15) of all things Kitty at Royal/T in Culver City. Despite its 10,000 square feet, the place was a mob scene.
“Three Apples” (the title refers to Hello Kitty’s precise weight) is a multi-dimensional exhibition that is open to the public and free of charge.
The Hello Kitty-themed menu offered at the “cosplay” maid café (that’s waitresses dressed in playful maid uniforms with a Lolita-esque touch for those who haven’t had the pleasure of eating at Royal/T) includes:
Hello Kitty’s Kawaii High Tea $25
An assortment of sweets, savory canapé, and mini sandwiches, including a pot of tea
mmm Delicious Mixed Mushroom & Cheese Tramezzini $8
Toasted white bread pockets filled with mushrooms and cheese, served with organic mixed greens
Say Hello Chicken & Artichoke Tramezzini $8
Toasted white bread pockets filled with artichoke hearts and chicken, served with organic mixed greens
School is Fun Ham & Cheese Tramezzini $8
Toasted white bread pockets filled with ham and cheese, served with organic mixed greens
Super Yummy Waffles $7
Waffles, mixed berries, whipped cream, and syrup
I ♥ Pancakes $7
Pancakes, bananas, whipped cream, and syrup
Individually wrapped, hand-decorated Sweet Happy Cookies $6
There was no shortage of art, costumes, accessories,
plush toys and alcohol.
Happy Birthday Kitty- may you keep capturing the hearts of sweet, young girls and older, not-so-sweet adults.
