Mutineer Magazine National Launch Party An Epic Success

I’m gonna come right out and say it. This sh*t is for real. On May 18, 2009, at the sleek Falcon Hollywood on the famed Hollywood Sunset strip, Mutineer Magazine made a statement with the Mutineer Magazine National Launch Party presented by Paso Creek.

Hundreds of Mutineers attended the red carpet event, which included a diverse, star-studded lineup of fine beverage companies pouring their creations.

The party was hosted by Issue #5 cover guy Zane Lamprey. When Lamprey isn’t hosting Bar Mitzvahs and magazine launch parties, he’s exploring drinking cultures around the world on his TV show, “Three Sheets”.
