Either the Havaianas Booth is out of flip flops, or they're just holding back on us today. When we approached the booth moments ago, having noticed that (shockingly) there was no line outside, we were told that they are only giving away Havaianas messenger bags. Even more disappointing: they are only giving the bags to people who spin a big flip flop-covered wheel and land on a certain color flop. When someone wins, everybody in the booth cheers loudly like it's The Price is Right or something. Where'd we put that extra-strength Bayer?
