Have any hot weekend plans yet? If your calendar is still wide open, here are a couple of suggestions of how you can make this Saturday and Sunday count, starting with making the trek to Escolta, Manila.
Come for a haircut, stay for the performances. HUB Make Lab in Escolta is no longer just the one-stop spot for unique finds plus some really tasty grub (and potent drinks) from local makers. With Folk 1006‘s soft opening this Saturday, men can get their grooming fix here, too. Check off a few items on your must-do list—get a cut/shave, drink, party—by joining in on the festivities. C’mon, there will be free-flowing drinks (until supplies last)!
That’s not the only thing on HUB Make Lab’s agenda, with the Makers Open House also happening on Saturday. Check out the goods from the socially responsible brand Denuo as they set up a pop-up shop at the First United Building, and join in on a variety of workshops to be conducted by HUB Make Lab’s resident makers. Learn about the art of kokedama, know the basics of baybayin, and more. Just shoot an email to [email protected] to know more about the workshops to be offered and to reserve slots.
Escolta newbies and old-timers alike can also get the chance to see the old Manila district anew with The Sketchwalk Set-up, presented by WHOAREMARO. Stroll down the historical street to marvel at the architecture and culture that continue to define the place, and put your pencil to paper for some analog memory-keeping. To reserve a slot, set aside Php300 for the joining fee and reserve a slot by sending an e-mail to [email protected]
