This Event Forever Changed WB&L…

Two years ago, the WB&L tribe created their first event exclusively for adults.  And as history would tell it, they decided to do it on Valentine’s Day.  It was, and still is, a one-of-a-kind experience of hip-hop culture for fans, artists, couples and even critics….

This year WB&L has extended #ScratchSipPaint to the entire Valentine’s weekend, hosting four days of “Scratch Sip and Paint” for couples, groups of friends, or people on a first date to make memories they would never forget.  This is your invitation to celebrate with the WB&L tribe this Valentine’s Day weekend to celebrate romantic love, the love of good friends, and the love of hip-hop culture.
