Hey guys! I hope you’ve had an amazing month so far. If you’re feeling curious about what I’ve been up to, here’s what’s happened in the first half of January…
For my first trip of 2023 in New York, Hennessy whisked me away to the Barclays Centre for some basketball. I watched an intense game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics, making my return to the Big Apple extra memorable. Since Hennessy is partnered with the NBA (they’re known as the ‘official spirit of the NBA’), this was an opportunity I couldn’t miss out on. Also, it was my first ever basketball game, so I felt extremely privileged to be able to go – thank you Hennessy!
As a guest of Hennessy, I was transported to the Barclays Centre in style by a chauffeured vehicle. At this point, it was difficult to contain my excitement while I made my way into the venue. Different seating options were made available for me, making it easy to shuffle between the courtside and the Hennessy Suite during the game.
The courtside seating itself was incredible! It was close up and personal with the players, as well as the ideal spot to film great Snapchat content for you guys. Overall, the game was action packed and the basketball pros made everything look so easy, from effortless slam dunks to impressive assists.
During half time, I got to enter the Crown Club, the centre’s VIP area for members who spend a minimum of $1,000,000 on season tickets. Did you know that Jay Z is a frequent visitor? For anyone who’s curious, the lounge has an extravagant menu curated by Carbone – the famous restaurant chain serving elite clients – with spirits from The House of Suntory, stunning dining areas that were giving ‘Burlesque’, and even a complimentary candy section where you could take home as many sweet treats as you like. It’s safe to say that my pantry will be fully stocked for a while.
For the rest of the game, I was in the best spirits. Since Hennessy had kindly taken me on this trip, it was only right for me to remain loyal and support the phenomenal Brooklyn Nets. I even had my Kevin Durant-signed cap and jersey with me, definitely my lucky charms for the game! If you’re not familiar with the NBA, Durant is a legendary Brooklyn Nets player who you might’ve seen in the music video for Popcaan Ft. Drake. Give it a watch if you haven’t.
To round things up, my introduction to live basketball was unbelievable! It was incredible to watch firsthand and I am beyond grateful for the experience. Also, I hope all 9 million Snapchat viewers enjoyed coming along with me and seeing some top, NBA action!
Until Next Time,
Lots of Love, Kika.
