What is up Hobby Fam?!
Welcome back to another edition of Riiip with Brody the Kid! The National special!!!
Today, I’m going to go thru a quick breakdown of some of my favorite stops while walking around The National and I want to share them with you because YOU should stop by and check them out, too! I am once again the Official Kid Host of The National and I am so excited it is here. Make sure to keep an eye on my Twitter and Instagram for more awesome spots as I find them! Just from a quick walk thru of the floor on Tuesday, I can tell you this might be the best National yet!
So here we go, in random order, these are the spots and booths I cannot wait to check out!
