The American Express Experience was an experience to remember
On Monday, April 9th, American Express held a once in a lifetime event called the American Express Experience, which was also hosted by the amazing Jessica Biel. This chic event was held in Industria, located in downtown Manhattan. The purpose of this event was to take some of the most viral things from the Internet and make it a really. A giant maze was set up to feature these things and each guest was able to immerse themselves in different themed rooms throughout the night.
As you start walking through the maze, you are first brought into this incredible rainforest room, giant leaves and all. The next room featured some of the most insta-worthy foods such as Spot Dessert Bar’s Thai Iced Tea in a lightbulb glass all the way to the famous rainbow bagel with cream cheese. What was even cooler was that there was a giant wall with pictures of all of the food available: Thai iced tea, Spot’s “The Harvest” which is essentially a light cheesecake in a flower pot, rainbow sushi, rainbow bagels, and cookie dough in a jar.
The next room was even better. American Express set up an entire room full of different lights and called it the “no filter room.” Guests were able to strike a pose and model in front of these lights to get a picture that looked as if it was filtered. There was the bright light picture which brightened up the picture, the multicolor lights that gave off a neon rainbow effect, and the black backdrop where guests could take amazing black and white pictures as if they were in a Vogue cover photoshoot. And the last room, which was by far the best objectively, was a room full of puppies where guests could just play with puppies that were ready to be adopted. When I say that this event had everything it needed to be perfect, I meant it. It had amazing food, free drinks, AND PUPPIES. I don’t care if you are allergic, you have to admit that puppies at an event like this is pretty freaking amazing.
