May 2020 was a tough month for Singaporeans. Fear of the pandemic, the lockdown, not being able to go out anywhere-all this added to overall gloom.
Tippling Club, (rated Best International Restaurant Bar-Tales of the Cocktail 2017) decided to shake things up a bit. It decided to host a Virtual Tattoo Party to get fellow tipplers into a mad party mood.
And where there are temporary tattoos, can Gumtoo be far behind? Naah!
Tattoo Parties have been a signature party at the Tippling Club, in the pre-lockdown days. The Club has conducted it 5 times with different tattoo themes such as Tiki Cocktails, Biker Gang, Hip Hop, and Block Party. The party has a guest bartender and 2 tattoo artists doing free tattoos as per the theme for all guests.
This year, the plan was to hold a ‘Cinco de Mayo’ style party on May 3rd. However, with COVID-19 and the lockdown, the event couldn’t be held in the usual way.
The Chief Tipplers (read: top bosses) at the Club decided to put a virtual spin on its tattoo party. Something novel to keep regular patrons engaged and to help them smile and forget a bit about the stresses of the lockdown.
The idea of a rocking Virtual Tattoo Party emerged. Codigo 1530 Tequila and Cointreau came on board as co-sponsors.
E-vites were sent to regular patrons and details of the party were shared on Tippling Club’s Instagram Page.
94 patrons who signed up for the party received an incredible high-value goodie bag.
The goodie bag consisted of:
2x 2 serve cocktails
1x Codigo 1530 Tequila miniature
1x Cointreau miniature
1x pack of nachos with chili beef and a selection of nachos (plant-based option available)
1x Cointreau Margarita glass
1x Codigo 1530 Tequila cocktail shaker
1x Codigo 1530 Agave nectar
1x Tippling Club x Codigo 1530 T-shirt
1x Cointreau tote bag
1x can of Perrier water
1x pack of transferable tattoos
It was time to go crazzzzzzy!
There were 3 mad games conducted–

Participants were asked to plate the nachos and dips that they received in the goodie bag in a creative manner.
The winner received another plate of chili beef nachos 🙂 AND lunch for 2 at the Tippling Club.
