On January 28, The Knockturnal had the chance to attend “Debbie Durkin’s EcoLuxe “Indie Film + Music Experience”. This event was in honor of the 2022 Sundance/GRAMMY/Golden Globe/SAG nominees and was held at “Wilshire Garden” from the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. The walking event featured tons of amazing booths who were there to share their unique products with us. Upon entering, we were greeted by the staff and were able to we walk around and meet all the amazing pit workers.
Stop one was Spirits BeSpeaken, a modern spirits house, which offered tastings of their multi-award winning Rye Whiskey and Bourbon. Here we learned all about the process of creating a modern spirit and even had the chance to taste their whisky. After speaking with the staff about their products, they suggested I try their American light whisky. This whiskey is distilled at a higher proof, which makes it lighter in color and hardness. This results in a much smoother finish compared to normal whiskeys. Their products were just amazing, coming from someone who doesn’t usually appreciate whiskey.
Then we went to check Utah Drip Hydration. There we were able to speak to some of the nurses on site who were providing B12 and immunity shots, in addition to rapid entry COVID testing. They showed us their menu which included IV treatments for hangovers, energy boosts, dehydration, weight loss and much more.
After having to stop and chat with one of our favorite nonprofits, Wagmor Pets. Wagmor Pets is a non-profit dog shelter based in Studio City. They work to rescue dogs and help them find forever new homes best suited to the needs of the dog and the owners. They were on hand with some of their new rescue puppies who were available for adoption. (To see these puppies and see which others are available for adoption, go to www.wagmorpets.org for more information or to make a donation).
Then we walked over and were able to talk to RevealU Skin Care. RevealU Skincare is a modern skincare brand designed for all skin types and launches its innovative new skincare tool REVIVE o3 Activator. This skin care tool is the ultimate full body wellness experience and can be used on all parts of your body. They are also launching their professional line of gel products and gave us some of their products to try.
Finally, we went to chat with the inspiring Voice of Disappearance | ECO streetwear. This local Utah-based clothing brand is launching its first streetwear brand on Earth, a powerful catalyst for ending wildlife extinction. Their mission is to help save near-extinct animals by creating stunning pieces of streetwear that combine trendy fashion with conservation, empowering the customer to become the voice of endangered wildlife and wild places.
The event also featured tons of other companies like Amare Global | The Mental Wellness Society which featured its Happy Juice Bundle with a combination of Amare’s most popular products: EDGE, Mentabiotics and Energy+, Floral designer Leslie Monroy who transformed the Beverly Hilton’s Wilshire Garden into a “Winter Wonderland”, the Beverly Hilton’s own chef, Matthew, who gave tutorials on how to make your own pizzas, and KNEKT® TV interviewed Sundance 2022 stars and filmmakers, as well as GRAMMY nominees, and broadcast live to home viewers around the world.
