Paul Frank kicked off its monkey-tastic Academy of Awesome Tour 2011 at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on June 25, and CC and I were there to help celebrate.
Traveling around the country in a new custom Winnebago (see above), Julius and the crew are hitting other cities, such as New Orleans, Atlanta, Philadelphia and New York. In addition to the decked-out RV, they're also bringing ping-pong tables, bouncy obstacle courses, a Battle of the Bands contest and a Puppy Prom.
CC had fun climbing up the giant inflatable slide with one of her friends, checking out built-in iPads in the Winnebago and getting a temporary tattoo of Julius the Monkey himself. (It was funny -- she kept asking me the difference between temporary and permanent, making sure the tattoo would eventually come off. It did.)
She also indulged in a fun ice-cream cookie sandwich from local food truck King Kone. Let's just say, sharing was a bit difficult.
