Get your own celebrity-designed Build-A-Bear and signed Wii game!

Hello out there in cyber land! Hope everyone is having a great week getting ready for the big T-Day '09...

We finally have an "official" URL for our Build-A-Bear Wii auction benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California!

Go to www.ebay.com/buildabearwiiauction to see bears designed by celebs like the Jonas Brothers (OMJ!), Tori Spelling, James Gandolfini (aka Tony Soprano), Bonnie Hunt, Raven-Symone, Melissa Joan Hart and our fave Disney stars: Meaghan Martin, Jason Dolley, Debby Ryan and more!

So if you're looking for holiday gift ideas - go check out our fabulous celeb bears and do some good this holiday season. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California - a very worthy organization that provides comfort and care to kids receiving medical treatment in So Cal (and their families).

Also a HUGE shout out to our client The Game Factory for their generosity and holiday spirit in donating their time, money and efforts to help make this auction possible (and successful!)

So get to shopping and let us know what you think of the bears (don't miss James Gandolfini's holiday turkey, which he designed with help from his son Michael) and the new Build-A-Bear Wii game. Gobble gobble.

You can also bid on these adorable bears designed (and autographed) by Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas today! Auction closes December 3.

Happy Turkey Day!

Build-A-Bear Wii Launch and Auction!

Hey everyone! So sorry it's been forever since we've been able to blog. Crazy busy around here!

One of the reasons we've been so busy is that we launched The Game Factory's new Build-A-Bear Wii game (called Build-A-Bear Workshop A Friend Fur All Seasons). How cute is that?

To celebrate the launch of this super fun party game, we had a blow out celebrity bash at the Build-A-Bear Workshop store at Hollywood Highland Center on Tuesday, November 11.

Here are just a few of the celebs who made it out to help us celebrate: Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott, Melissa Joan Hart, Disney's Camp Rock's Meaghan Jette Martin, Debby Ryan from the Suite Life of Zack and Cody on Deck, Jason Dolley from Disney's Minute Men and the upcoming Hatching Pete, singer Austin Anderson, Californication's Pamela Adlon... we could go on. But we won't.

Here are some pics of the event.

More to come about our eBay auction benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California in a few...

Something Awesome Happened At BridgePort Brewery...

So basically, one of our fabulous clients...BridgePort Brewery...tried something awesome a little over a year ago...most people refer to it as their 22-ounce Big Brew line...

But something about their latest and greatest...it not only has a sick name - Raven Mad - but it also has a sick label...it requires you to wear really awesome glasses and is all like hey check out these letters with those red and blue frames because I'm pretty sure they are in 3-D and oh yeah so is that bird down there...

...I'm sure most of you have seen if but if for some weird reason like you have been studying abroad and not in the country or you had a strange illness that caused you not to be able to enjoy the fabulousness that is beer and it made you so sad that you had to cut all communication off with the bridgeport beer world (...and yes that means no blog reading, no twitter following, not even kbeer listening to on the website...) and you have yet to see the label...well here it is just for you!!!

YEAH, I know right!! Awesome!!

Here are some pics from bottling day...

and also, other's think that the brew is awesome...so if I'm not convincing enough to get you to run out and grab yourself a bottle to enjoy...read these...they might help.
