Sunset Jazz Lounge was a break from a week of hustle and bustle for families and communities around Bonifacio Global City last June 5.

 

What set this Sunday apart was that guests were treated to a night of new culinary discoveries, live mural art by Rai Cruz, and performances by Blues artist Hoochie Coochie Mikkie, jazz ensemble Extrapolation and soulful Sinosikat?

 

It was a delight to stand alongside Pink’s Hot Dogs’ introductory selling during the event, with people from around the metro flocking to get a taste of Hollywood’s finest hot dogs.

 

Also making themselves more accessible were Shangri-La at the Fort’s Samba and High Street Café serving up specialty drinks, meat skewers and, the crowd favorite, Macau Wraps.

 

Brotzeit’s beer paired with a selection of their sausages or with Maisen’s katsu sandwiches was a filling kick-starter, and Planet Grapes married wine and street food seamlessly.

 

Planet Grapes’ Turon Trilogy and Toby’s Estates’ Buckies provided a sweet substitute.

 

It was a Sunday any BGCitizen would want to have regularly.

 

The event was organized by SoulBGC under Hinge Inquirer Publications, the definitive guide on where to go and what to do in BGC, in partnership with Fort Bonifacio Development Corp.
