Playboy and A&E hosted the most talked about party during Comic-Con weekend (Friday 25th July 2014) as they transformed 40,000 square feet of outdoor space into their exclusive “Bates Motel” themed event.
Celebrities and VIP guests enjoyed Patron XO Café-infused ice cream sandwiches; cocktails by Patron Spirits and beer by Heineken; and Music by Mick.
Additionally, celebrities walking the red carpet were given the opportunity to take a key from the “Bates Hotel” valet stand at the end of the carpet and attempt to start the engine of the Triumph Scrambler Custom on display, courtesy of Triumph Motorcycles America and South Bay Motorsports.
Orlando Bloom, Vera Farmiga, Norman Reedus, and Shane West all successfully started the engine and were each able to make a monetary donation to the charity of their choice on behalf of Triumph Motorcycles America.
