Johnnie Walker's Party of the Century!

BY: Paola Cancellieri

En La Escena was present at the 100th year Anniversary for Johnnie Walker Black Label.

The special night was hosted by Carlos Ponce - Singer, songwriter, producer, actor and host. Who recently starred in the Hollywood hit-film Couples Retreat.

I had the opportunity to sit down & interview Carlos Ponce. An interview that shows a very accessible, fun & charming Carlos and you will be able to see it very soon here on En La Escena!

To say that the night was a success in an understatement!

Johnnie Walker Black Label sure knows how to throw a party! No wonder they are The world's favorite brand of whiskies. They celebrated this special milestone with a Latin flair & called it "Fiesta del Siglo" ( Party of the Century) The house was full & everyone was enjoying their drinks & hors d'ourves. Also throughout the night I heard multiple times announcements asking people to drink responsibly.

The opening of the show was amazing! I call it the "Keep Walking" Intro. Behind a white screen They cleverly showcased the human evolution with silhouettes. Showcasing the gradual evolution until man achieved to stand upright. Next they showed the signature silhouette of Johnnie Walker's Striding Man with a hat & cane. As the screen fell there was the Host of the night Carlos Ponce dressed as Johnnie Walker. Simply genius! Then the guests enjoyed the unforgettable dances the rest of the night.

I have to say that is was great to be at the Fiesta del Siglo. For me it shows the respect that Johnnie Walker has for our Latino Community. They could'nt have had a better host then Carlos Ponce, since he is very loved & respected by the Latino Community.

Congratulations Johnnie Walker Black Label on 100 years of excellence!
