What a night! More than 300 guests gathered at our TPGtv video relaunch party in Los Angeles yesterday to celebrate our new video series in style.
Conceived as a recreation of my travels in Japan earlier this year, the night felt like an exotic carnival: Guests could feast on ramen and sushi (made on the spot), pose for photos with geisha girls, dance with giant robots and watch me exploring Japan on large video screens and at iPad stations.
Here’s a quick tour of the evening’s entertainment:
If you weren’t able to join us for the TPGtv launch last night in LA, I hope you’ll be able to join us for our TPG reader meet-up at the new Amex Centurion Lounge in Houston on August 2.
