In our humble opinion, Arizona Iced Tea is a delicious and refreshing antidote when you need to wet your whistle. Whether you’re privy to the sweet tea, green tea with ginseng and honey or even the fruit punch, the brand’s many varieties have served folks well (and affordably) for the last 25 years.
So if an Arizona beverage is your go-to whenever you get a sammy and chips from a deli, you’re about to go nuts over how the company plans to celebrate turning a quarter of a century—with a pop-up shop. Joining the fray of temporary storefronts in Soho, Arizona created a 99-cent store hawking themed streetwear and accessories that resemble the brand’s many logos. The week-long shop opens to the public on May 16.
From cherry blossom pajama sets and Arizona basketball jerseys to hats and skateboards that read “99-cents” on them, the swag is like a '90s dream. But merchandise isn’t the only gimmick. Tattoo artists (celebrity tattoo artist JonBoy is one of them) will be stationed at the shop on May 16, 18, 20 and 21 from the hours of 2pm to 8pm to offer fresh and FREE ink in a range of custom designs created specifically for this event. But unlike the drink, the duds will cost you more than a buck. (The aforementioned silk PJ set is marked $150.) Regardless, it’s worth going for the photo opportunities and for the chance to get a free tattoo! Here’s a sneak peek of what the pop-up shop will look like as well as a photo of our Video Editor Delia Barth rockin' some of the swag.
The pop-up, located at 43 Crosby St, is open daily from 11am–8pm from May 16 through May 21.
