Hollywood and insanity will soon enough have taken over Akira's series of North Avenue boutiques. Visions of co-ed college toga keggers, busty models riding horseback, Stetson men and Hasselhoff hunks will become reality inside Akira's first storefront shops in the now colloquially nicknamed 'Akira Row'. This party is called "Akira Studios" (as in Universal Studios) and will be taking place on Thursday, July 14 from 4-9 PM. The party will feature free food and drinks, drinks, live entertainment, discounts and crazy giveaways including a trip to sunny Los Angeles. [Racked Inbox]
