Stackers is considered to be one of the newest burger resto in Eastwood City Walk. The ambiance is so cool eventhough they have a little seating-space capacity but when you look at their menu --- it's very enticing. Mostly your favorite choice of hamburgers, chickens, salad and other side dishes.

You can choose from Stackers Classics, Stackers Premium, Stackers Originals Burgers, Crispy Chicken Burger, Asian Burger Bowl, Garlic Chips, Chicken & Chips, Fried Mozarella Sticks Coffee, Floats and Milkshakes.

The burger cafe is open 24/7. So take a bite and see it for yourself.

“HARRY POTTER 6” OPENS WITH P104.77-M, BOOSTING FRANCHISE AS BIGGEST EVER

Image
MANILA, July 20 -- “The Half-Blood Prince” is the full-fledged king of Philippine box-office! The sixth installment of the “Harry Potter” saga rewrote the record books, posting a royal P104.77-million nationwide four-day opening weekend (July 16-19) in 310 screens. This was announced today by Francis Soliven, general manager of Warner Bros. Philippines, the film’s local distributor.

That figure represents the all-time biggest four-day opening weekend in Philippine history (beating 2007’s “Transformers’ at P103.87-million). “Prince” also broke the fastest time (four days) for a “Harry Potter” film to breach the P100-million milestone (outpacing 2007’s “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” which achieved the feat in five days).

The incredible opening of “Half-Blood Prince” now makes the “Harry Potter” saga the undisputed most successful franchise ever in local history, with an accumulated gross of a staggering P959-million (surpassing the “Spider-Man” franchise’s P910.32-million ove…

My ultimate Movie Experience @ Eastwood Mall Cinema

Image
Bad weather condition is - no excuse - for me - to experience Eastwood's Ultra7 Cinema. Last night, it was one of the best movie experience I've ever had. I'm so excited the moment I received the invite because the movie we're going to watch is - Harry Potter! Am not that "too fanatic" of the movie (as well as the books) but I love see the developments of its story. As we were hanging out with Harry, Hermione, Ron and the rest, we were fully pampered @ Ultra7 Cinema.

Some other movie theaters said "they were the best, offering the best seats, luxurious, spacious, etc" but as I've entered Eastwood Mall - the feeling is different. What captured my attention was their reclining seats, a twin type -- 60 seater capacity! Plus the attendants were so friendly and accommodating. Once you entered the cinema, they're immediately offer you what you want -- Yes, it's overflowing popcorns and drinks. Just raise your hand, and they'll come to you.

A Tribute to the King of Pop at Eastwood City

Image
Millions of tears have been shed. Too many tributes have been given. Yet, all these do not seem enough to exalt and bid goodbye to the one true king that we have witnessed in our lifetime: the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. And no matter what all of us do, the reality is, he is gone and we can never hear his voice again; we can never see his powerful dance moves; we can never bring him back.

But for one last time, let us all pay homage to the King of Pop who reigned for four solid decades and revolutionized the world of pop music. Witness MJ fans imitate their idols and relive those moments when he “moonwalked” to the top of the music world. Listen to his music once again and reminisce how his songs “made you feel,” or how it ”rock with you” through the different phases of your life.

Celebrate the king’s life and be part of the Michael Jackson Tribute with Magic 89.9 Friday Madness and Eastwood City on Friday, July 10, 8pm, at the Eastwood City Central Plaza, Quezon City. Duncan, Luke Me…
