Are You Coming to Comic-Con?

Rebel Industries will be live and direct at Comic-Con this week. Look for us around the streets of San Diego on Thursday. We'll be activating a promotion for an upcoming major motion picture. Details are top secret for now, but the main character is definitely a name you've heard before. Watch this space or follow me on Twitter for more info as it becomes available.

Then on Friday, we've got the New Amsterdam Shave Lounge. We partnered with SPIN Magazine and IHEARTCOMIX to provide guests with complementary straight-razor shaves, shoe shines, and New Amsterdam cocktails. If that wasn't enough, the party will feature performances by Andrew W.K. and Peanut Butter Wolf. Get your tickets here.

We hope to see you. Leave a note here if you're coming down.

New Amsterdam Shave Lounge

Rebel Industries kicked off a 12-event series for New Amsterdam Vodka last week at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, UT.

Guests at the Slamdance opening night party were the first to experience the New Amsterdam Shave Lounge, an early 1900s-style barbershop / bar setup that offered free straight-razor shaves, shoe shines, and of course cocktails.
