The 2012 NBA Baller Beats by XBOX 360 MTV Video Music Awards Lounge gifting suite at the Ritz-Carlton Residences was the place to be on Thursday, September 6th. Attending an event at a gifting suite is much like getting a surprise birthday present. Each room has a staff of affability, and a variety of free swag, and services.
The VMA Lounge was presented by Velodyne Acoustics, whose headphones could be sampled at the Velodyne listening room. “ These are the best headphones I’ve ever used ” said a guest while waiting for his turn to play Baller Beats basketball by XBOX.
In order to truly immerse yourself in the experience Le Posh Salon Lounge was on top of the to do list. The room had an ethereal quality with partygoers chatting on the white leather coaches, while waiting their turn for a massage, and the much in demand manicure. “ I’m very ticklish, and when touched tend to flare my arms up, and hit people ” said one fashion writer before getting into the massage chair.
Some of the other attendee’s included The Gold Medal Olympians: Jordan Weiber, Kyla Ross, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, and Aly Raisman.
