How can I not love Travel Factor? How can I not love my friends? They go out of their way to go to my bar in Naga City. This was originally just a Calaguas-Bagasbas trip, but since I now have a bar in Naga City and on the 15th, I have an event, Razorback at Wharf Galley Rock Cafe, they are coming to Naga! Oh-some!!!!

Camarines Super Stoked Weekend (April 15-17, 2011)
Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur

From the evil, evil labs of Travel Factor’s research and development department comes its newest creation, the Camarines Super Stoked Weekend!

Wake up to wakeboard in Camsur or just literally bounce around in CWC’s waterpark. Eat your way through Naga’s fiery cuisine and maybe even cap a night off with a rocking performance at Wharf Galley, a home-grown rock cafe. Head on to sublime Calaguas for some ultimate beach bumming and then finally, sail on to Bagasbas for some pounding surf. Prepare for some serious stoke.

Pain killers not included.

I had come from somewhere else that day and got home late. We arrived at 70’s Bistro quite late and missed one or two band performances. I spent some time hanging out with friends and did not take a lot of photos. Here are the shots I managed to take.

The Travel Factor 2011 Kick Off Party held at 70’s Bistro last night was a terrific success. It was a night spent with good friends and good music from Pumping Pluto, Johnoy Danao, Peryodiko and Pedicab.

TF friends arrived in “rock star” outfits, or mellowed down versions of it. For the sake of my friend Ver who does not have a Facebook account, here are some of the photos taken by Deneb Villanueva.
