SPARKS Guilly’s: Breakfast, Boxers, and Big Screens
It was the fight that everyone wanted to see and nobody could shut up about: The pride and joy of the Philippines versus the pride and joy of Justin Bieber.
After years of negotiations and patient waiting, a date was finally announced. May 2, 2015 was marked as the day when the so-called “Fight of the Century” would take place. Insults were hurled, bets were made, and about 95% of all vehicles in Metro Manila mysteriously vanished from the roads, leaving only a gigantic dust cloud of unshakable faith, indomitable will, and somewhat misplaced Pinoy pride in their wake.
I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to SPARKS Guilly’s in Quezon City to watch the historic first (and possibly last… nah, not really) fight between world-renowned boxers Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. on live TV. Now, I admit that I’m not exactly the biggest boxing fan in the world. As a matter of fact, the last boxing match I saw (read: really paid attention to) was Tyson vs. Holyfield, and that fight took place almost two decades ago.
However, I couldn’t bear to pass up on the chance to try two new things: 1) sampling the delicious offerings of a soon-to-open sports bar and 2) being surrounded by screaming boxing fans who could probably generate enough energy to simulate a small nuclear explosion, while desperately trying to understand why these two half-naked men couldn’t just sit down and settle their differences over, I don’t know, biscuits and tea or something equally harmless, instead of trying to punch each other’s teeth out while wearing shorts seemingly made out of car logos and soap brand patches.
My girlfriend and I arrived at SPARKS Guilly’s a bit early. We took the opportunity to look around and snap some photos of the place.
Pretty soon, it was on.
We all know what happened next, though. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the experience. I’m happy I got the chance to watch the fight with enthusiastic fans while enjoying a fantastic breakfast.
