As life gradually returns to “normal,” traces of the pre-pandemic era begin to emerge. This provides a ray of hope that we can all appreciate. Art events and a bustling Manila nightlife are two examples of the “old life.” The two are being brought back from the “old world” and into the “new normal” at SM Aura Premier, a popular high-end mall in BGC. SM Aura Premier is hosting a pop-up art, food, and drink festival at the mall’s Skypark in conjunction with Vinyl on Vinyl art gallery and a select group of pubs and eateries from the Poblacion region. The Vinyl on Vinyl x Re:Poblacion Market Day is the name of the event.
Vinyl on Vinyl art gallery and the group from Poblacion (through RestoPH) are nearly filling the entire mall’s Skypark with a visual and gastronomic feast, brought together for the first time by SM Aura Premier. 1372Designs, Aizel, Cartellino, Cotton Candy Creature, Hyperbollic Time Chamber, The Analog Cartel, and over a dozen other artists from the Vinyl on Vinyl list will be bringing in art and merchandise. El Chupacabra, Agimat, Cantina, A Toda Madre, Café Fleur, Easy as Pie, Piece of Cake, Kali Burger, Moloko, and Kite Kebab Bar are among the restaurants and pubs participating in the pop-up.
Taking place at SM Aura Premier’s rooftop outdoor area from November 19 to 21, November 27 to 28, and December 4 to 5, guests can enjoy food and drinks from their much-missed Poblacion gastropubs, shop from and support local artists, and participate in art workshops – all with paint generously donated by Boysen Paints Philippines.
IN SAFETY, REVISITING AND DISCOVERING PASSIONS
More and more businesses are springing up all over the metro, though many are not yet fully operational. Everyone’s mind is focused on safety from the COVID-19 virus, and we’re all looking for safe and alternate methods to live a “normal” life. Outdoor activities and hangout locations have been increasingly popular, owing to the fact that they are generally more COVID-safe than their indoor and confined equivalents. Vinyl on Vinyl x Re: Poblacion Market Day undoubtedly meets the criteria for being open-air, capable of proper social distancing, and providing an opportunity for the public to re-energize and discover new interests in art, food, socializing, and culture.
