End of the week, bar hopping, and college night are words that come to mind when Thursday rolls around but for the marketing team at Tito’s Vodka, they celebrate Ryan Gosling. Tito’s Vodka invites everyone (21 and up) to their special one-year anniversary of “Ryan Gosling Thursday” at Key Bar. Blow off some steam with Ryan Gosling coloring books, contests, cake, and a smilebooth where your memories are brought to life because there’s so much to smile about. Think of “Ryan Gosling Thursday” as an excuse to enjoy the pure pleasure of fun.
Although many would agree that there are many reasons to celebrate Ryan Gosling, Tito’s Vodka marketing team has a story behind their reoccurring event. Oddly enough “Ryan Gosling Thursday” started from a broken heart. According to marketing employee Crystal Rios it all started when her long-term relationship ended during the week of Fun Fun Fun Fest and, as fate would have it, Ryan Gosling was in Austin.
“It became a mission to take a picture with Ryan Gosling”, says Crystal Rios and it happened. Her mission to get an image with Ryan Gosling took her mind off of her recent brake up. Crystal and her co-workers came up with the idea that it was time to move on and put aside a day made exclusively for fun. The office at Tito’s Vodka decided a tribute to Ryan Gosling seemed logical especially after a break up, long week of work, and early start to the weekend.
The event has become a tradition at Tito’s Vodka where “Hey Girl” memes decorate the office and outrageous creative talent is shown through Ryan Gosling bottles, birthday cards, and other decor. Thursday has become a day where everyone in the office applauds their hard work, takes a break from chaos, and relishes happiness.
“Ryan Gosling Thursday” is an event where everyone is brought together and bonds over what they do. It’s a tradition where the motto “work hard play hard” is a reality for the staff at Tito’s Vodka. “It’s a happy day” says Crystal Rios. Over the months the event has grown from only staff members partaking to now local business getting involved and excited to share a Thursday made especially for Ryan Gosling.
Come out this Thursday November 15 and participate with Tito’s Vodka staff to Key Bar located on 617 W. 6th Street, Austin, Texas 78701 during their Happy Hour from 5-7. Enjoy drink specials, activities, and a one-year anniversary of fun dedicated to one man. The event is open to the public but RSVP is encouraged. Only 21 and up individuals may attend the event.
