MTV Wonderland is a frat party on steroids - but one that I definitely want to go back to.
It's a "mini festival" that MTV airs live on Thursday nights complete with artist interviews and...commercials! I had the great honor of attending the taping for their second episode featuring Mac Miller, MØ, and Leon. (MØ was by far my favorite performer). The dress code is trendy/hip-hop club, but it looked more like I had just walked into the 90s. Sweatbands and basketball jerseys, ripped jeans and over-sized denim jackets.
For anyone 21+ you are allowed two free drinks - but no one stops there. You're pushed to keep partying and have a good time! (They did offer a spot down the street for Uber pick ups, and the eight cop cars outside the venue made sure to keep everyone safe.)
DJs were playing out of the windows of abandoned buildings, food trucks were ready to serve the party-goers, and the beer taps were flowing. I will definitely be going back!
