Hello Kitty Food Scavenger Hunt
Multiple trendy LA Restaurants
Eleven restaurants, eleven pins to collect. Eat at them all to complete your quest. There's talk of pink cheese hamburgers to eat. It's a kaleidoscope of LA's food scene with Hello Kitty sundaes, sausage, pizza and cupcakes at some of LA's most well known treat and eat places. The best source so far is an LA Times article on the event.
Scant details beyond that, check more at Sanrio for updates on the food hunt. Sneak Peak at exhibit.
Hello Kitty Con
Oct 30 - Nov 2
Geffen Contemporary at MOCA
Not far at all from the Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty in Little Tokyo, this event will last through Halloween and into November. This special Hello Kitty Convention will have the Hello Kitty Super Supermarket where you can buy exclusive merchandise. They'll be Hello Kitty everything items to purchase with special activities, workshops, sneak peaks and panels. It's was too much Hello Kitty for LA, but you can handle it.
