National Geographic hosted dinner and cocktails at their “Destination Wild” event to celebrate the start of the 2014 Summer TCA. The rooftop of the Beverly Hilton was transformed into an Animal Kingdom for everyone to explore. Bold guests took the opportunity to hold and pose with a real snake. Others had fun dressing up in crazy hats and other accessories to take photos in front of a green screen that was later turned into a wild safari adventure. There were cute, stuffed panda bears positioned throughout the event along with cookies to match.
Everyone took home a gift bag with a huge beach towel, water and DVDs of upcoming “Destination Wild” episodes that will air, starting in September. Visit National Geographic for listings.
