Smile To Go In Araneta City Is Giving Fandoms A Safe Space In The Healthiest Way

This place is a fandom favorite for cup sleeve events and more!

Fandom culture is all-consuming, with a whole lot of highs and lows. It’s great when an actor, a book, a musician, a show, or the like unites people from all walks of life. Smile To Go in Araneta City understands the magic of fandom all too well. The hardworking Sy sisters run the franchise. Jen, the younger of the two, is part of several fandoms, such as the BTS ARMY.

They’ve hosted fandom events for several local and international acts: Alexa Ilacad, ASTRO, BTS, SB19, and so much more. They recently hosted a “maid cafe”-type affair for a Genshin Impact PH community!
