As everyone is aware, RIM hosted an L.A. BBM Lounge Party for Xomad at Siren Studios in Hollywood. I was fortunate enough to be party of the lucky few to get a V.I.P. pass to attend this event. This party was Saturday, August 5th from 10 pm until 5 am.
Let me tell you this, the party was very ingenious. Xomad gave party goers who did not have BlackBerrys BBM envy with their BBM specific Easter eggs. A typical Hollywood-style party, this was not.
Order a BlackBerry Martini, Champagne with a BlackBerry dropped into it or a Mojito via BBM stands like this. All you had to do was scan the BBM code. Wait for their acceptance, then place your order for your drink. It was even brought you while you wait at the stand!
There was even a BBM code so you can recharge your battery. Ladies, Xomad even had hair dressers and makeup artists on hand so fresh your make up and hair. All you needed was to scan the BBM Code and receive the invite. The entrances to the Battery Recharge area and Make up artists had security who wouldn’t let anyone in without the BBM invite making every girl who didnt have BlackBerry very envious of their friends.
As the night wore on, a special surprise came in the form of live BBM-ing being streamed on the wall of the studio! There was a special BBM code for the posting of status’ and pictures!
The party was rocking. Food and Drinks were plentiful, lots of loud music to get you in the groove. And the Red Bulls ran the scene as the night wore late.
Xomad is currently thinking about having another BBM Lounge Party in September again in Hollywood then possibly moving to New York for the next one. As this was the first party, I hope that every one after that is better than the one before. Congratulations to Xomad on a job (or rather party) well done and I hope they continue having this awesome party.
